A fleet of 16 all-terrain utility vehicles was among a wide range of equipment provided by Kennards Hire for the scouting movement’s 2010 Australian Jamboree. Other items supplied by Kennards included:

  • Several “utes” with specially fitted ladder racks
  • A 1.5 tonne transit van
  • Tractor
  • Trailer
  • 6in trailer-mounted pump
  • Mini excavator
  • 9in chipper
  • 20kVA trailer-mounted generator
  • 4000psi water blaster
“Test your limits” was the theme of the 10-day event, centred on Cataract Scout Park south of Sydney and attended by 13,000 Scouts, leaders and volunteers. Mike Wright, the deputy director of site infrastructure, said they were very happy with the Kennards’ utility equipment, particularly the all-terrain utility vehicles, which were “invaluable for getting into nooks and crannies and ensuring the safety of the kids”. But, it was the service which stood out even more, Mike added. “The Kennards guys were absolutely fantastic,” he said. “It seems like nothing was too much trouble. If ever we had a problem, the response was a quick ‘no worries, we will sort it.’”

Peter Oliver, assistant chief commissioner (development & communications), said hire utility equipment was a vital component of the operation. “We had to build a city from nothing in a month, using volunteer labour and a modest number of contractors,” he said.
