Digging the foundations for a sustainable future

Say hello to our brand-new Stage V-compliant excavators!

Following a string of new contract awards, Howard Civil Engineering has invested millions of pounds in upgrading and enhancing our fleet at Howard Plant Hire. Our latest purchases include six new Kobelco 13-tonne excavators, and 11 new Doosan excavators ranging from five to 14 tonnes in size.

These excavators are the latest generation of diesel engines, using selective catalytic reduction (diesel exhaust fluid) and diesel particulate filter, and are non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) Stage V-compliant! This technology means that these excavators release significantly fewer carbon emissions than older models without compromising on performance.

These machines will be making their debuts on our Olive Lane, Skipton Road, One City Park and Scarborough Hospital sites.

We are looking forward to welcoming more Stage V excavators to our fleet in the coming months, including excavators up to 19 tonnes in size.

Trust us to deliver your project on time and on budget
