All in a score’s work: 20 years of operation and still going strong

Since 1994, Mick Snell has directed his company CMS Plant Hire, providing wet and dry hire for the greater Sydney region. His business also spans out to Newcastle, Campsie and even Canberra when builders call for a seasoned expert in earthmoving and excavation.

Mick has recently purchased a Cormidi Dumper 80 and is more than satisfied with its performance. “It’s easy to use, which means anyone can jump on and operate it. Except for me of course – those days of operating are over as I now manage the worksite and projects!” Mick laughs.

The Cormidi 80 was purchased for a specific contract at an aged care rehabilitation facility in Sydney. “We had to work in narrow spaces for the extension that was taking place within the site. Having the Cormidi meant we were able to load and transport material such as dirt and site waste quickly and easily.”

“We had previously rented Cormidi’s for contracts that were short to long, as well as by-the-hour jobs across civil, excavation and landscaping applications. I am very happy with the decision to purchase the Cormidi. It really suits my business needs.”

Formerly, Mick managed up to 65 staff and a fleet of over 80 plant equipment. These days he still is very busy managing his business, but is still finding the work very satisfying with fewer staff and plant. “The more rewarding part of my job is seeing a finished project, as well as the diversity of each different job. Every day is different and I appreciate the variation,” Mick beamed.
