21 tonne Kobelco SK210 Excavator

Leading national plant hire company Hamilton Plant Hire has announced further investment in its growing fleet with the introduction of GPS technology in several machines, as well as the acquisition of new equipment in response to increased customer demand.

Adding to its 300-strong portfolio and further complementing an extensive Hitachi fleet, the new additions include two 21-tonne Kobelco excavators, and four 8-tonne Hitachi excavators.

Several of the firm’s machines have also been upgraded with the latest GPS technology which has been installed by industry leader Leica Geosystems – demonstrating Hamilton’s ongoing commitment to remaining at the cutting edge of advancements within the plant hire sector.

Helping to improve accuracy on site, the GPS boasts improved sensor technology which enables faster digging without the loss of precision at higher speeds; increasing machine utilisation and productivity, as well as driving cost efficiency.

Tom Hamilton, managing director of Hamilton Plant Hire, said: “Customer demand continues to increase, so we are regularly investing in our fleet to ensure we have the equipment needed and that we can deliver it to site quickly and efficiently.

“Our portfolio is predominantly made up of Hitachi machines, but following recent investment in Kobelco equipment we have received great feedback, so we’re happy to be furthering our offering of that manufacturer.

“The investment in GPS technology is also an important investment in our fleet. As a business we are very passionate about embracing any advancements within the industry that will serve to drive efficiencies and, subsequently, save costs for our customers.”

Established in 1890 in the name of W.Hamilton and Sons, Hamilton Plant Hire is a family-run, modern plant equipment hire company which runs an extensive fleet of modern plant equipment for hire – either on a self-drive basis, or with experienced and qualified operators.

The business regularly invests in its fleet in order to ensure that customers have access to the latest cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art equipment brought to market.
