You can view all the The Digger King diggers online by registering to watch the video, or view them in person at our 800 sqm factory and showroom, located in South Murwillumbah, just 15 minutes south of the Gold Coast – but please call to book a time first. All diggers are on display

Delivery at cost or you can pick up.
We organise custom pricing including the attachments you require in your package, then raise your invoice so everything is clear for you. Once you are happy with everything, you either pay your deposit to go into production, with your balance due once production is complete and your digger is ready for delivery, or if you are applying for finance, you will deal with the finance broker directly to get your loan approved.

Please note: The finance is via a broker; the criteria for applicants is that you need to be a permanent resident or citizen, and either working PAYG, or have had income on an ABN either as a sole trader or through your company.  Unfortunately Centrelink and Disability Pension do not qualify for finance.
