A long-standing relationship with local machinery dealership Ballarat Tractors led Stephen to consider Kobelco excavators.
‘I hadn’t worked with Kobelco machinery before but I’d heard good things from people in the area and I needed something reliable. Whatever I bought was going to be hired out straight away, so it needed to hit the ground running,’ he says.
Stephen purchased his first Kobelco SK17SR in June 2016, and has since gone on to purchase another three Kobelco mini excavators and four Kobelco midi excavators. He says that the first mini set the standard for his rapidly expanding excavator hire fleet.
‘Sometimes these mini excavators can get into some tough situations. I couldn’t afford to have any issues with them because I was just getting this part of my business started. The first client who hired it raved about it, so it was an easy decision to go back to Ballarat Tractors for more.’
