EXECUTIVE HIRE SHOW REVIEW continued


Expansion at Obart Stihl highlights cordless benefits


As well as promoting cordless tools like its TSA 230 cut-off saw, Stihl emphasised the benefits that such equipment offer hirers in terms of maintenance, with no engine to service or repair. National Sales Manager Steve Parkin said this will be applicable to more products in the future, as battery power and running times continue to increase.


The TSA 230 has a 230mm cutting wheel, weighs 3.9kg without the battery, and provides emission-free operation. It incorporates a water connection for dust suppression.

Generac Sales Director, Ray Caulfield, was celebrating having been named as Salesman of the Year for 2015, having reached the target of selling more than 1,000 lighting towers, and reported a very successful Show. “It has been wonderful. You catch up with lots of people you may not have seen for a


while, and you can see the directors of your top hire customers. It’s as much pleasure here as business, and everyone is in a positive


mood, making it a very enjoyable place to be. “Hirers have been showing particular interest in machines like our VB-9 Eco and Hybrid lighting towers, which reduce carbon emissions and achieve greater fuel savings. More and more of their customers are specifying products with this kind of technology to meet sustainability targets.”

Obart reported a good number of orders throughout the Show. “We sold five Tsurumi HS2.4S pumps to EPS Hire Centres, while Artisan Hire ordered ten LB480 models and six HS3.75S models,” said MD Matthew Hill. “Also, a lot of hirers say they are now choosing our equipment, having bought cheaper, inferior units in the past. “To meet demand due to the increasing


occurrence of extreme weather events, we are building a 5,000ft2


warehouse


extension at our Maidstone headquarters. It should be completed by the end of the


year and will enable us to stock an additional 900 pallets of pumps.” 01622 355000 www.obartpumps.co.uk


Compaction equipment from Chicago


Chicago Pneumatic says its new MV58 forward plate compactor has been developed to meet demand from hirers for a lightweight machine that can be used efficiently on asphalt surfaces. It incorporates a tubeless water distribution system to keep the plate free of material, and an integral 5-litre tank. Weighing 70kg, it has a Honda engine and optional transport wheels are available. Also shown on the stand was the MS 595


rammer, which can be fitted with a 15cm-wide foot for work in narrow trenches and other enclosed spaces.

Demon showed its new 240V electric Storm Mini-Bowser, which has a 150-litre water tank and provides a pressure of 1500psi at 11 litres per minutes. Also on display was a version with a Yanmar diesel engine, to meet demand from customers requiring compact, non-sparking equipment. The company’s Hurricane machines have new frames and pneumatic tyres, rather than solid ones, to reduce vibration.
