A Harden Plant - Specialist Excavations

Our Fleet

As you may have already read on areas of our website, we operate a range of modern Kobelco excavators which have multiple benefits to the end user - the customer.

Unlike some hire companies, we don't and never will send out on hire, plant machinery that's going to be unreliable, expensive to operate or unable to perform efficiently. Ultimately, this is an inconvenience to us never mind downtime to the customer in holding up the task in hand which will in some way, cost money.

There are 2 main divisions to the company, namely;-

  • Specialist Excavations Division
  • Earth Moving and Groundworks Division

Having started and founded the business with a 15 year old Pel Job, we have grown to operate a modern and new fleet of Doosan Excavators with our Earth Moving and Groundworks division using Komatsu excavators. We also have at our disposal, JCB excavators, Terex Site Dumpers and Bomag Rollers.
