Major milestone for GR8 Equipment & Tool Hire

GR8 Equipment & Tool Hire, a leading independent hire firm, has recently taken delivery of its 100th Kubota excavator from Hosplant Sales following a sustained period of business growth...

Based in Hertfordshire, with further depots in Saffron Walden and Cambridge, GR8 has worked closely with Kubota for nearly a decade and has seen the demand for the Japanese manufacturers’ mini-excavators rise rapidly. With a reputation for robust and reliable machinery, GR8 boasts a large and diverse Kubota mini-excavator fleet of 1-3 tonne machines to meet the varying needs of its wide customer base.

The KX and U excavator series from Kubota are some of the most reliable and durable machines on the market to date, utilising Kubota’s latest in-house engine technology designed to offer maximum fuel efficiency, minimal noise and vibration, as well as low emission levels to meet current regulations.

Josh Thompson, Managing Director of GR8 Equipment & Tool Hire, said: “It’s been an exciting journey over the past ten years developing the business and to watch how its grown is something the team and I are very proud of.

“Kubota and Hosplant have played a key role in this business growth. The Kubota machinery is dependable and can handle the toughest tasks, which is vitally important for our customers. When you combine that with great machine residual value and the excellent service we receive from Hosplant, we are so glad we chose Kubota in 2014 and have never looked back since.”

Hosplant developed a bespoke black and gold livery for the 100th Kubota excavator to mark the milestone, based on the uniform colours of the local high school which Josh and his team attended.
