Sheffield-based plant hire company, Hamilton Plant Hire, has made a multi-million pound investment to expand its fleet offering this year, in order to meet increased demand from customers across the country.

Including 21-ton and 13-ton excavators, 3, 6 and 10-tonne dumpers, 9 and 14-meter telehandlers and 80 and 120 rollers, the investment nods to the company’s ongoing commitment to providing top-of-the-range machines to meet the ever-changing needs of the construction industry.

Available for nation-wide hire, Hamilton Plant Hire’s growing fleet is made up of premium brands including Hitachi and Kobelco Excavators, JCB Telehandlers and Backhoe Loaders, Thwaites Dumpers and BOMAG Rollers; with many of the latest additions offering cutting edge technology that can help drive efficiency and increase safety on-site, as well enhancing comfort and accessibility for users.

Investing for the first time with Japanese manufacturer Kobelco, the firm’s new 21-ton SK210 Excavators boast a number of impressive features including live satellite telematics, double lock hydraulic quick hitch, green seatbelt beacon, a fall arrest system, cab guards, two-way hammer circuit and rotate circuit.

The machines also have a range of extra operator comforts such as aircon, heated seats, 360 degree camera systems and lots of leg room; with customer feedback describing them as ‘exceptionally operator friendly, smooth, powerful, and very fuel efficient’.

The family-run firm has also increased its 3, 6 and 10-tonne Thwaites Dumper fleet as well as its 14 meter JCB 535-140 and 9.5 meter 535-95 Telehandlers, which can be offered on both a self-drive or operated basis.

Tom Hamilton, managing director of Hamilton Plant Hire, said: “We’re delighted to be able to offer a range of new and exciting machines. As a family run business, we are very passionate about providing a high quality, personal service to our customers.

“We have an extensive and growing fleet, and we pride ourselves on our ongoing ethos to keep up with the changing demand of our customers – with our ability to provide premium brand, safe, modern, economical and comfortable machines.

“This is the first time we have invested in equipment from Kobelco, and we have been incredibly impressed with what the machines have to offer in terms of efficiency and usability. Feedback from customers to date – having been on numerous sites across the country now for a number of weeks – has been overwhelmingly positive.

“As an expanding plant hire company, we invest regularly and substantially year-on-year to ensure we make available the very best, state of the art equipment to those operating in the construction industry.”
