After a decade of supporting major projects for the civil construction sector in Queensland and New South Wales, Hawthorne Civil is more than familiar with the challenges of securing reliable plant and equipment that can operate in the harshest Australian conditions. 

Hawthorne Hire exists to provide certainty to major contractors seeking high-quality and reliable plant and equipment to support them as they deliver major programs of work.

Specialising in the supply of Frannas, telehandlers, excavators and compressors, our expert team of plant and equipment specialists, is committed to rapidly deploying machinery to any project on Australia's eastern seaboard.


Hiring plant and equipment shouldn't be hard work. But after a decade of supporting major project delivery across Australia, we understand the challenges and pressures of securing the best equipment for the job when and where you need it.

The plant and equipment market has been flooded with poor-quality products in recent years. While an initial price point is attractive for some organisations, our focus is on equipment that maximises availability and runtime, so unnecessary and avoidable equipment failures do not delay projects. We stock brands known for their reliability and endurance, such as Caterpillar, Bobcat, Manitou and Sullair; they are the brands we trust and ones I know our clients can rely on.

We also operate a no-call centre policy, believing relationships more important than being on hold, pressing multiple options and liaising with account managers who don’t understand construction and infrastructure.  This means that our clients will have a direct line to their Hawthorne Hire representative, all of whom have experience in equipment rental, understand the construction process and appreciate the daily challenges that project and site engineers face.
