JJ Sugrue has added its first HD Hyundai compact excavator to the fleet

Suffolk-based plant hire and contracting company JJ Sugrue has added its first HD Hyundai HX85A compact excavator to the fleet, with a second machine already on order. Supplied by local dealer Ernest Doe & Sons, the 8.5-tonne excavator is the 38th HD Hyundai machine to be purchased by the company.

Started by Jerry Sugrue in 2006, as an owner operator business, the company has grown steadily to a fleet of almost 200 machines, with more than 80 staff on the payroll. Sugrue offers its fleet of equipment with a team of experienced operators, or on a self-drive basis across the East Anglian region.

The fleet includes almost 30 HD Hyundai machines, ranging from the compact R17 mini excavator, through to HX145A mid-weight excavators. Indeed, the company has run every model of HD Hyundai excavator up to the 14-tonner, other than the R55, over the last decade.

The HX85A is a big step forward from the previous generation 8-tonne model. Boasting a powerful Stage V Yanmar diesel engine and a load sensing hydraulic system, the HX85A is available with monoboom or two-piece articulated boom and a four-way angle dozer blade.

“We do run the latest HX130A excavators as well. We bought the HX85A to trial it on site and now we’ve already ordered our second one. They are really good machines,” says Jerry. “They are good value for money, reliable and the longevity is excellent. We usually change our equipment at four or five years, but we have had some of the HD Hyundais for longer than five years.”
