It is one of the largest orders Bobcat has ever received from the UK’s independent rental sector, and it represents a major expansion of the UK-based rental company’s fleet. This is a response to growing business in and around London.

The order comprises E08, E10, E17, E17z, E26, E45 and E85 compact excavators covering operating weights from 0.8 to 8.5 tonnes. They all belong to Bobcat’s E-generation of machines, designed to provide a combination of class-leading breakout forces, working range, smoothness of control and fast cycle times, as well as a comfortable operator environment and good service access.

Damian Teevan, Managing Director of Teevan Hire, said, “We chose the Bobcat brand to power our expansion for several reasons. Bobcat is a brand we know well that is synonymous with quality, performance and reliability. Under the lead provided by Sales Manager, Alan Sams, Bobcat was able to offer a very attractive package backed up throughout London and the Home Counties by excellent service and parts support from Bobcat of London, the local authorised Bobcat dealer for the area.”

Teevan Hire supplies a range of equipment for building, utilities, civil engineering, DIY and gardening.
