Hodgson Tool Hire, one of the leading independent hire firms in the North West of England, has expanded its mini-excavator fleet with the purchase of nine new Kubota machines throughout 2023 due to increased customer demand.
Established in 1997, Hodgson Tool Hire is a family run business with depots in Burscough and Ainsdale. With the nine new Kubota additions, consisting of U17, U27 and K008-5 machines, Hodgson Tool Hire now boasts an 18 strong excavator fleet and has more than 50 plant items on hire throughout the North West of England.
Callum Hodgson, Branch Manager at Hodgson Tool Hire, said: “Our commitment to maintaining market-leading machinery is paramount to our success and, most importantly, to meeting the needs of our valued customers. We understand that in the construction industry downtime can be costly and frustrating, which is why we continue to invest in Kubota machinery due to the reliability and impressive performance the excavators offer.
“The recent business growth is testament to the reputation we have built over the past 25 years on providing superior equipment, this not only enhances productivity but also ensures the safety of operators and job sites. A vital part of this is the relationship we have with Kubota and the service and aftersales support they provide, and we look forward to working closely with them for many years to come.”
With track widths adjustable to as little as 700mm (K008-5) and zero tail swing (U17 and U27), the new excavators bring their superb all-round vision and high power-to-weight ratio to the most difficult to reach environments with low ground impact.
