About Us

From our humble beginnings to today!


Bryan Hoggarth started in 1976 as a mobile agricultural engineer repairing and servicing all makes of tractors and machinery. In 1981 Bryan opened his premises in Kendal and was awarded the Leyland tractor franchise.

Hog Hire was formed in 1999 when Bryan purchased an established tractor hire company.

This part of the business has gone from strength to strength, hiring anything from a tractor to a snowplough.

The core of the business is the hiring of tractors and pressurised water tankers or water bowsers as some people call them, for dust suppression within quarries, landfills and construction sites.

A lot of research and development has been put into this area by Hog Hire in relation to the strict Health and Safety within quarries and large construction sites, who use this type of equipment on a regular basis.

Hog Hire operates a modern up to date fleet of tractors including models with front PTO and front loaders. Tractors are supplied with reversing alarms, reversing camera and monitor, green seat belt light and flashing beacon.

An ongoing programme is in place for plant renewal and refurbishment throughout the fleet.

Water tankers are driven by hydraulic pumps, so there is no need for PTO operation, which is a massive advantage for safe usage by the operator on site. Implosion valves and explosion valves are also fitted, along with a vacuum pump oil recovery system which helps in the prevention of oil contamination soaking into the ground.

In 2016 Bryan Hoggarth Ltd was awarded the Wacker Neuson Construction Equipment Franchise and Hog Hire now runs a fleet of Wacker Neuson products which include 1.5 ton and 3-ton diggers with an industry leading called VDS (Vertical Digging System), 1 ton high tip dumpers for those tight working spaces and wacker plates.

Wheeled loaders and telehandlers in our fleet start with machines from only 1 metre (3 feet) wide.

We have a team of trained fitters with fully equipped service vans based at our Carnforth depot in Lancashire, who look after our hire fleet Nationwide, whether it is a 1 to 3-day hire or a long-term hire.
