From Monday there is a road closure in Kilmaurs and Neilson for 5 days which will mean that our lorries will have to use the Stewarton Fenwick road. We stopped using this road a number of years ago due to how narrow the road is in places but unfortunately we have no option but to bring some of the loads in this way.
When we are using this road we will put an escort van in front of the lorry to ensure you have prior warning that a lorry is coming and we ask that you watch your speed and follow any instructions from the escort driver so we don’t have any issues next week.

Two new arrivals today.

Following the success of our Dual View dumpers this year we have added another DV90 9 ton & a DV100 10 ton to the fleet today from Hamilton Ross Group

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 this morning for a weekend job but will be available immediately from Monday with or without a CPCS operator. If they are of interest to you please call the office on 01560 482136 to discuss your requirements.
