Wee bit of something different for our attachment range. A grading beam supplied by Eurofab.

This beam is equipped a roller plus dual saddles to allow us to put it on an 8t or 14t engcon allowing us to put this on a 8ton & 14 t track machine along with 10t and 14 ton rubber ducks. It also has post for laser receivers and with it being used on an engcon can tilt and rotate to make the finishing job Even better.

This attachment joins our range of attachments which include hammers, grabs, compactor plates, riddle buckets, forks & clamshells which can all be hired with or without our machine.

We received a request on Saturday to provide a 22ton machine with LGP tracks for one of our major customers. The machine had to be on-site for Today so we entrusted Astrak to supply and build a set of tracks suitable for this machine which they delivered last night and our guys fitted straight away. Hopefully we will get some on-site pictures in the coming days!!

The machine is sitting on 1150mm pads which gives it a ground pressure of 0.28kg/cm2 compared to 0.41 kg/cm2 on a standard machine.

This machine will join our specialist LGP excavator range which now ranges from 8 ton to 22ton along with our 12t and 25t LGP Dumptruck’s.

Although This machine is going straight out on hire we have availability across our fleet of all types of machines. If you have any requirements please call our office on 01560 482136 to discuss your requirements.

Here are the first arrivals of 2021

Following the success of our Dual View dumpers we have increased the fleet by adding another DV90 9 ton & a DV90 9 ton swivel skip dumper to the fleet today from the Hamilton Ross Group. These machines were ordered yesterday morning and delivered in the afternoon. Terrific service.

These machines are equipped with a High driving position & high working position for an Optimal view for more safety plus the option to drive in two positions thanks to the rotary Console in the cab.

We have also equipped these dumpers with hi viz steps and hand rails, green seatbelt beacons & reversing alarms.

The added bonus of these trucks is that they can be operated on a FTD ticket so the operatives on site can still use these.

These two machines are heading straight out to site today but we have other DV90 dumpers coming available from Monday which can be supplied with or without a CPCS operator. If they are of interest to you or any other items in our fleet then please call our office on 01560 482136 to discuss your requirements.
