If you want to reduce your costs and you let us know in advance, account customers can also collect plant or powered access from our Plant Hire Depot in Lincoln.
As well as self-drive plant we can provide experienced trained operators who will hold the relevant Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS) operators card, which confirms a level of skill and knowledge which is recognised and required within the industry.
We constantly strive to supply the best equipment, but in the event of a breakdown our trained fitters and a network of external support field engineers are on-call to carry out repairs to minimise any site downtime.
We work directly with the industry’s leading plant suppliers in order to offer you the newest models and the latest innovations. We have over 500 pieces of plant and equipment from leading manufactures including JCB, Genie, Volvo, Bomag, Liebherr, CAT and Thwaites to meet the needs of Plant Hire in Lincoln and Lincolnshire.
The vast range of equipment we provide includes:
The JCB 3CX which is the world’s number one backhoe loader and is one of the most popular items of plant in the U.K. And new to the hire fleet in 2018 is a JCB 1CX tracked backhoe loader for unparalleled stability and soft ground performance.
Our fleet of Liebherr and CAT Dozers are suitable for ripping, trimming and dozing operations and come with high capacity power angle Tile blades, low ground pressure tracks and cabs providing good all round visibility.
Our fleet of Dumpers range from ¾ Tonne to 10 Tonne and offer both straight and swivel skips and are ideal for the smaller sites or gardens.
Our Tracked Excavator fleet ranges from 1 Tonne to 13 Tonne up to 48 Tonne, Long Reach Excavators from 18 mtrs reach to 24 mtrs reach and 17 Tonne Wheeled Excavators with specialist High Rise Cabs.
Our range of Fastracs offer full front and rear suspension for unparalleled ride, comfort and traction. External disc brakes offer excellent heat dissipation and far greater performance than the oil-immersed systems found on conventional tractors.
Our fleet of diesel Forklifts include straight masted and telescopic, ranging from 4 mtrs to 20 mtrs reach, with a full incremental range in-between.
Ground protection mats are incredibly strong, but also lightweight, easy to use and simple to install by hand without the need for lifting equipment.
Our mobile Lighting Towers are ideal for locations where high level powerful lighting is required and with them being exceptionally quiet they are ideally suited for use at outdoor events and weddings, but also sturdy enough to be used effectively on construction and industrial sites.
Our range of larger Loading Shovels are ideal for use in quarries, recycling centres, farm yards and waste disposal sites. A variety of Shovels are waste specification with solid tyres and high-lift arms and can be supplied with different size buckets up to a capacity of 5 cubic meters.
Lorries & Plant Transport
As well as delivering our own plant we can also transport your equipment from site to site with our fleet of bespoke Lorries, including Rigid Beaver Tail Lorries, Step Frame Articulated Lorries with rear loading ramps, Low Loaders with a 150 Tonne GTW and steering axles, and Hiab Lorries for self-loading.
Our fleet of Mini Diggers are ideal for the self-builder, landscaper, farmer or contractor and range from a Micro Digger at ¾ Tonne up to 10 Tonne and all are supplied on rubber tracks.
Our fully trained and experienced operators will hold the relevant CSCS/CPCS card and will have passed the Health and Safety touch screen test.
Our fleet of MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) are split into two categories, Scissor Lifts and Boom Lifts. Our diesel and electric Scissor Lifts can be used for many applications where a straight vertical lift is required.
Our fleet of Rollers can be used to compact soil, gravel, and asphalt and our range includes single drum pedestrian Rollers with Trailers, twin drum ride-on Rollers and 11 Tonne self-propelled compactors with optional pad foot drums.
A Skidsteer Loader turns by skidding, or dragging its wheels across the ground and is capable of a zero-radius turning, which makes it extremely manoeuvrable and ideal for working in enclosed hard surface areas such as poultry sheds or crew yards.
Our Vermeer ride-on Trenchers save time and energy and are a quicker alternative to digging by hand, trenching to a maximum depth of 1.52 mtrs. Ideal for use when installing electrical cables, water pipes, groundworks and landscaping.
