UHI Machinery has been hard at work in recent times carving out a niche in the local market, with the small machinery specialist maintaining an assorted product portfolio with an emphasis on affordability and geared towards meeting the needs of small businesses and tradesmen.
UHI stands out in the market by virtue of its competitively priced earthmoving machines – spanning mini excavators, skid loaders and wheel loaders – which are sold factory direct and distributed nationally under a model strongly focused on cutting down on costs.
When it comes to undertaking relatively small-scale jobs, larger machines may in many cases not be a practical or economic choice for smaller operators, with UHI seeking to offer customers who fall into this bracket a range of options.
Catering for its customers’ varied needs, UHI’s machines are small in size but have plenty of grunt and are decked out to deliver across a variety of applications, while providing for an uncomplicated path to machine ownership.
MINI EXCAVATORS, SKID LOADERS AND WHEEL LOADERS
Across the full scope of its mini excavator, skid loader and wheel loader range, UHI’s machines incorporate robust and reliable components, and have been designed with a firm priority on durability and reliability.
All frames are robot welded, which not only provides for a great appearance, but also a super-strong structure, while the range of accessories used across UHI’s machines are sourced from well-known brands.
Built tough, UHI machines are primed to get the job done in different conditions, and across an evolving product range, operators in search of a machine to tackle smaller-scale jobs have a number of options at their disposal.
The UME10S and XU20 swing boom mini excavators highlight the variety on offer from the UHI product portfolio, spanning machines suitable for tackling small-scale jobs to those decked out to undertake commercial applications.
At the more compact end of the scale, the UME10S is primed to take on small jobs and tight access excavations, making it ideal for a variety of operations across hobby farms, backyards, renovations, and semi-commercial jobs.
Meanwhile, the premium XU20 is a new addition to UHI’s line-up (having been released this year) with the larger machine packing the power required to get stuck into a range of commercial applications.

In undertaking agriculture, farming, nursery, and construction projects, to name a few, the U30 skid loader and US40K skid steer loader provide operators flexibility when it comes to works across a range of applications.
The compact U30 is a productive unit to have on hand when taking on works across construction, landscaping, and hobby farms, while the larger US40K is primarily used for construction and farming operations.
