A unique partnership has been formed between rental company HSS Hire and manufacturer Kubota.

Under the unique deal 200 new Kubota mini-excavators will be made available by HSS with next-day delivery within the Greater London, UK, area. They are fitted with GPS tracker technology as standard.

Kubota will provide specialist maintenance, coordination and troubleshooting under the agreement that will, subject to a successful trial in London, be rolled out nationally across HSS Hire’s network of over 300 locations.

John Gill, CEO at HSS Hire, said, “Mini-excavators are really important items of equipment to all our customers and there is clear demand for this type of ‘mini plant hire’ throughout London. We aim to win new and deepen existing customer relationships with the service which is available now.”
