EXECUTIVE HIRE SHOW REVIEW continued


Hilti celebrates Show 10


Hilti is one of 27 innovative suppliers that have exhibited at every Show, and its team was clearly happy to be at Show 10. The upbeat mood continued throughout the event, with significant orders from visitors on the stand. Amongst them was One Stop Hire for no fewer than 223 items, including 22 survey products, the first time that the hirer has added this category of equipment to its fleet, ranging from laser measures to total stations. MD Steve Hitchen told EHN that he had visited Hilti’s factory in Germany and been impressed by demonstrations of the shock-resistant qualities of products like the PR 300-HV2S rotating laser. “We have considered adding survey and laser items for three years, as they are popular re-hire items. Because these products can require specialist servicing and maintenance, factors like Hilti’s training resources and the rapid turnaround from its Glasgow central service centre were key reasons for our choice.” One Stop’s order also includes tools ranging from drills to large


breakers, and brings the total number of Hilti items in its fleet to more than 1,000.


Hilti’s new X-Change Module (X-CM) diamond core system, which is designed to allow users to quickly re-tip core bits, was included in the Innovation Trail at the Show. Instead of being supplied as a single unit, the cores have a ring on the barrel which can be removed with a screwdriver before a new one is pushed and twisted into place. This eliminates the need for the entire implement to be sent for re-tipping, and operators can use one barrel alongside different rings for work on various base materials. Hilti says hirers can also stock a range of rings and supply the appropriate one with the main barrel to suit the customer’s specific task.
