Kennards Hire supplied various mini earthmovers to a building contractor for executing a project on a home site with severely constrained access.
Dominic Arciuli of N & F Arciuli hired 500kg and 650kg capacity high lift, rubber tracked dumpers as well as a mini skid steer loader and a one tonne excavator from Kennards Hire Seven Hills. Each machine could fit through the 950mm wide front gateway and down a narrow passage to the backyard work site.
Arciuli Stone designs and manufactures natural and manmade masonry for domestic and commercial use, and also has a building and landscaping arm. The company has been hiring equipment from Kennards for several years.
The mini earthmovers hired from Kennards Hire helped the contracting company take out 130 tonne of dirt as well as dig a 700mm x 700mm footing for a perimeter retaining wall. The contractor also hired ground mats and temporary fencing from Kennards.
The 500kg capacity dumper has a tipping height of 1400mm, sufficient for direct transfer to a skip or standard two-tonne truck, while the 650kg model tips to a height of 1.6m. Kennards Hire also offers an 800kg capacity model as well as low-tip units and ride-on swivel dumpers in some areas.
Kennards Hire operates 142 equipment hire centres in Australia and New Zealand.
