Hirst Civil and Cartage proudly introduces a new Kobelco SK140SRLC-7 to their fleet

Jason Hirst, founder of Hirst Civil and Cartage started his career as an excavator operator right after finishing high school. He invested in his first excavator, the tough SK55SRX, and recruited his father as a truck driver. Four years ago, he delved into entrepreneurship, which has been a mix of achievements and challenges. He approached the business world with resolve, embracing the challenges of maintenance schedules, optimising fuel usage, and striving for operational effectiveness. Yet, amongst the challenges, there were moments of pure joy – those instances when he found himself lost in the rhythm of the digging work, parallel to a kid lost in the immersive world of a sandpit, as described by Jason.
