"We’ve had competitor products over the years, these have always outlasted them.’"

- Richard Cowdell of Eastern Earthmovers

Eastern Earthmovers Ltd has been established since 2000. Starting with just one machine and one operator, Eastern Earthmovers have now expanded into a huge contracting company holding a fleet of more than 17 high-quality Caterpillar excavators and 8 trucks. We caught up with the proud owner, Richard Cowdell - to see why Calibre products have remained his preferred option of attachments for the last 18 years. 

Richard has acquired many of Calibre’s quick hitches, tilting hitches and buckets over the years - with his most recent purchase being his second specialised Calibre Tilt Bucket to sit on the end of his CAT 316F excavator. As such a brand loyal customer, Richard notes that he’s kitted all 17 of his machines with Calibre attachments because ‘’Calibre products are very reliable and the tilt buckets are very efficient so they increase production on the excavator.’’ 

Richard loves his Calibre Tilt Bucket mentioning ‘’We’ve had these for many years, they’re really strong, nicely made’’ He also goes on to mention ‘’We particularly like the big rams, they’re really strong. You can stand the digger right on the end of it and they’ll keep going’’
