With the ever rising manual labour costs, excavators,graders and wheel loaders are becoming increasingly cost effective in road works, excavations for dams and septic tanks.
This goes a long way to saving money for the developer as compared to using manual labour. In areas where the plot size is small, there is no sewer, and the developer needs to construct apartments, eg Rongai, Ngong, Ruai,Kitengela, Athi river, Kikuyu and Ruiru, excavators come in handy to dig in through the rock. Nairobi and its surrounding areas have around 1 meter to 2 meters depth of soil then rock, meaning, to construct a sizable septic tank, excavating through the rock is a must. Once the rock is excavated to a considerable depth, the waste can easily seep in through the permeable rock structure in the soak pit area.
Excavators, gradersa and wheel loaders are available for hire at good rates at the contacts below.
