M O’Brien Plant Hire is one of the UK’s leading plant hire companies, supplying a large range of equipment nationwide. The family business was started by Michael and Annamarie O’Brien with just one JCB in 1991, today the company operates a fleet in excess of 600 items of plant and continues to grow alongside our customers needs. 

Through continuous re-investment that goes into our fleet renewal program M O’Brien Plant hire achieves a very young fleet age with typical replacement taking place when machinery reaches around 3 years of age. Reliablity is extremely important to us as a business so we invest in respected manufactures such as Hitachi , Caterpillar, JCB and Kobelco to name just a few. Our service team at our operations hub in St Albans ensures all servicing and inspection requirements are met on time and with minimal downtime to our customers. 

Our machinery is available for hire with all of the latest safety equipment such as 360 degree cameras, slew restrictors, height restrictors, Safe load indicators etc. It is quite possible at the time of sale for some machinery to be sold with these items fitted. Please get in touch if you have specific requirements when it comes to this. Please view our equipment list to view our current stock of machinery for sale.
