Why Hire

Cougar promotes the advantages to mining equipment hire:

Conserve Capital – hire the equipment you need and use your capital to expand your business further or other ventures.

Get the right equipment for the job – hiring lets you fit the right type and size of equipment for the job.

Reduce down time – if the equipment breaks down, our highly trained staff will trouble shoot, source parts and repair the equipment quickly optimising your equipment and labour productivity.

Inventory control – hiring provides the extra equipment you need, when you need it, keeping your equipment inventory at a minimum.

Reduce compliance obligations – let Cougar manage the headache of maintaining equipment compliance.

Increasing safety standards – no need for capital expenditure to comply with ever increasing safety standards.

Control costs – no ‘Fair Wear and Tear’ costs including major components.

Save disposal costs – you won’t need to spend time and money preparing, advertising and selling used equipment.
