Kennards Hire has added 5.5 tonne and 8 tonne machines to its expanding range of excavators.
Now available in some areas, these machines join the 1 tonne, 1.5 tonne and 3.5 tonne units, which can be hired across the branch network.
Kennards Hire Winnellie supplied two 5.5 tonne excavators to Darwin-based civil, electrical and building contractor Wolpers Grahl for a power and water project involving the laying of high voltage cable from Weddell Power Station over Elizabeth River Bridge to Archer Zone Substation.
MG Electrical Services, principal contractor for the project, carried out overhead installation of the 66kV feeder, while Wolpers Grahl undertook the below ground work.
Wolpers Grahl construction manager Troy Glover explains that the company already has 11 of its own excavators, but regularly needs more to meet new requirements. Wolpers Grahl finds the quality of equipment and service provided by Kennards Hire extremely good.
Kennards Hire has also hired out an eight tonne excavator with rock-breaker attachment for work around a major mine in a remote part of Western Australia for trenching, digging footings and rock removal among other tasks.
Kennards Hire operates 142 equipment hire centres in Australia and New Zealand.
