Say hello to the newest members of our plant fleet! We’ve recently invested in new machinery to enhance our existing fleet at Howard Plant Hire.
As a result of winning multiple new contracts across the region, Howard Civil Engineering have purchased a number of Komatsu PC80MR-5 midi and PC55MR-5 mini excavators.
These new machines are part of Komatsu’s MR-5 generation of mini and midi excavators. The range concentrates the quality and performance of the larger Komatsu construction range into a compact package. Each machine is packed full of high level standard specifications including a Stage V emissions compliant engine, auto idle shutdown, neutral position detection system and Komtrax monitoring system.
They also have a tight tail swing radius and a swing boom that hugs the machine, making them the perfect tool for city-centre sites such as Ironworks and Greengates Junction which have constrained site footprints.
As a result, Howard Plant Hire now boast an impressive fleet of 60 excavators ranging from 2 – 38 tonnes.
