Earthmoving & Excavation rentals from Sharecost Rentals in Nanaimo, BC

Skid-Steer Loaders

Our Bobcat™ skid-steer loaders excel in quickly moving large volumes of material. This loader is commonly used for grading a site to the elevations required such as when building a driveway, backfilling a foundation, or establishing a new lawn. A dozen people working feverishly with shovels and wheelbarrows would be unable to keep up to the rate at which the loader can dig, carry, and spread materials on your jobsite. A skid-steer rental can condense that weekend-long job you’ve planned into a couple of hours.


Excavators move ground with precision. They often work in tight areas with fine tolerances for digging, grading, carrying, and loading. Our small excavators can get into the tightest of sites, often sneaking through the backyard gate! Our machines are commonly used to dig utility/irrigation lines in for new homes, rearranging shrub beds, and re-doing perimeter foundation drainage on older homes. No other machine is quite as capable at precision work on difficult sites than a compact mini-excavator.


Powered machines tame the more aggressive hills and difficult terrains, climbing with ease through mud and rocky base. These wheelbarrows are small enough to fit through back garden gates to access more difficult to reach and far away areas. With the hydraulic dump capacity, your work is cut way down. Whether walk-behind or ride-on, we’ve got a great little assist to make hauling yards of material much easier – and less time consuming. And yes, we do have those old fashioned reliable heavy duty wheelbarrows for all those usual jobs! Come and see which one fits your job.

Soil Screeners

Back to Categories For Rent: Soil Screener Screens dirt quickly!

Uses: for sand, soil, and rock (up to 8” diameter).
Weight: 1600 lbs.
Feed: with loader buckets up to 78” wide.

Soil Screener


Stop paying to haul it away! Turn that pile of excavated material into useful soils for your next landscaping project. This portable screener is designed to be run in conjunction with a small tractor or skid-steer loader. Our T-650 Bobcat is the perfect loader because it can pick up and move the screener around on the jobsite with special lifting lugs designed to securely “connect” with the bucket of the loader.


  • Three screen sizes available – heavy duty 2”×2” for rock/gravel, 3/4”×4 for rough screening of soil, and 3/8”×4” for generating fine soil.
  • Easily adjustable screen deck angle to maximize production depending on how screening material is reacting on site.
  • Vibrating screen deck.
  • With a 1/2 yard bucket loader you truly can create up to 25 yards (volume of a truck and pup) per hour of fine screened topsoil. We’ve verified this with our own trial runs.
  • Cheap to run: runs off electric 110V power outlet or small generator!
  • Do the math: turn that mixed waste material on your jobsite into planting-grade topsoil quickly!
  • Take an 8 hour work day with a Bobcat loader and you will be able to create 100 yards of material – or enough to cover 3,250 ft square at 4” deep – a nice new lawn indeed!
  • We’ve also found the rock and rubble “waste-overs” from the screening process can be used as a good solid fill material.

Please note: Dry or slightly damp soils are best, and easiest to screen. Wet, clay-type or muddy soils tend to clog up the screens and do not screen well. Dry periods from late Spring to early Fall is the best time to use this screener in most cases.

Note: This simple machine can save you a LOT of money in trucking soil mixed with rock offsite and buying, and then trucking suitable replacement soil back. Please discuss your options with us today!
