Limited time offer: 8 hours operator with mini excavator or loader Penrith area $650

About Us - experienced excavating contractor



Darren and Trudy are a husband and wife team who started DS Diggers to combine their mechanical, trade and business skills to help home owners with all their pre-landscaping needs. 

Both Darren and Trudy grew up in families working in construction and excavating. Darren is a very experienced diesel mechanic and has worked in the family businesses as an excavating contractor for many years. He has undertaken specialist training in underground service location and excavating and spent many hours as an experienced operator of machines. 

Darren worked on the construction of his own home and has therefore experienced every stage of construction, landscaping and property maintenance. He now brings this understanding, knowledge and experience to customers to ensure their needs are met. Time is spent consulting with you about your desired outcomes and considering the most effective way to achieve your goals.

Darren and Trudy are now undertaking their Certificate III in Civil Construction Plant Operations. In NSW this qualification is not necessary for most residential work and if required only the supervisor who may not be on site is required to be qualified and licensed. We pride ourselves on being overqualified in a way that will ensure your job is completed accurately and safely. 



DS Diggers made a conscious decision to purchase new machines and state of the art underground service location equipment. This is to ensure reliability and accuracy for our customers. 

We have machines that will access under 1 metre making tight access jobs a speciality. 

We have various attachments such as augers and rippers to match the right tool to the right job. This increases efficiency and  minimises costs to you. 

Quality guaranteed


We are passionate about customer service and satisfaction. Having dealt with many service providers over the years we have very high expectations. We only offer our clients what we would be happy with.

Communication is the key! We spend the time to understand your job and explain how we can assist you. We turn up on time on the day we say we will or we will contact you to reschedule. Work will be performed by an experienced operator, as described, or we will rectify the situation. 

DS Diggers are fully insured and operate with skill and care. We will consult with experts if required at our expense and refer any work outside our area of expertise.
