Sydney-based Sitex is an excavator and attachment hire specialist and largely rents equipment to contractors working on NSW government-funded projects. Currently this includes Sydney’s WestConnex and NorthConnex projects, as well as the Sydney CBD Light Rail.

Heavy machinery being used on government contracts must adhere to exacting specifications and safety standards. Sitex approached equipment dealer Sydney Trucks and Machinery (STM) about securing a fleet of excavators that would meet these strict requirements.

"It's important to my customers that their supplier understands the high level of detail and knowledge that is required to get anything over the line in these types of contracts," Sitex managing director Jon Arnot says.

"STM were familiar with our very specific needs as a provider to government projects. This was important – neither we nor our clients have time to waste on an excavator that doesn't meet specification."

Sitex and STM have since developed a solid working relationship, with the latter adding many more Kobelco excavators to the hire fleet.

"We have over 50 Kobelco excavators of different sizes across our fleet. We keep our fleet fresh and technologically up-to-date, constantly updating with new Kobelco machines," Arnot says.

"There's little for us to worry about when we deal with STM. We get exceptional pricing for such dependable machines as well as great after-sales support and servicing."
