About Us

We are an independent Scottish family firm based in East Ayrshire, established in the early 1960s by Robert Duncan, then joining forces with John Duncan Junior in the mid-seventies.

On Robert’s retirement in 2000, John and Margaret took the reins and are now joined by the third generation: Andrew, Maureen and Alastair.

At RS Duncan Plant Hire we have a vast experience in hiring excavators with attachments to all types of customers ranging from main contractors in the construction industry to agriculture and landscaping industries as well as the DIY market.


We have a range of excavators ranging from 2 Ton to 22 Ton including mini, midi zero tail swing, and crawler excavators, backhoe loaders, dump trucks, tractors and skip loaders.


Our plant is on a 36 month renewal cycle to ensure maximum productivity and minimise unscheduled downtime.

While keeping our fleet up-to-date this investment helps us meet future emission standards and reduces our operating costs, which gives us the ability to offer our customers the best possible competitive price.

If for some unexpected reason the plant has a problem we have our own in-house fitter who is on call 24/7.

  • We guarantee if we do not repair the plant to working order or replace the plant within 4 hours of breakdown, your day’s service will be FREE.
  • We offer standby cover on all operated plant.
  • All our plant is hired under SPOA conditions.
