EXECUTIVE REPORT continued


Shindaiwa reports keen interest in its range of LED lights.


Genquip Groundhog’s (www.groundhog.co.uk) stand display included the GPO500 Fusion Pulse, a 5m welfare unit with solar panels to provide a cost-effective and ecologically sound hybrid solution. Models on show included one (pictured right) from several bought recently by Jarvie Plant, and it has been configured with an office area and external floodlights.


Shindaiwa (www.shindaiwa.co.uk) reported keen interest in its BLD 180 LED 18W lights which can be linked together to illuminate large work areas. Sales Director Tom Page said that a national recently bought 1,000 sets for use during an oil refinery shutdown, where the user suspended them from on-site scaffolding.


Equipment promoted by Pramac-Generac UK (www.pramac.com) included the range of DF Dust Fighters for suppressing airborne particles at construction sites. The line-up will soon be increased by a new MPT 3000 model. It has a horizontal range of 20m and incorporates a 3.7kW generator plus a 1,000- litre water tank for self-contained operation.


From its ArcGen welding equipment range, Morris Site Machinery (www.morrismachinery.co.uk) showed the Adder 350 wire feeder which can work with the 500A Cobra multi- process inverter or other ArcGen CC/CV (constant current/ constant voltage) diesel power source. Both units can be mounted together on a special trolley to provide a welding package with TIG and stick welding capability.


Morris showed its recently introduced Adder and Cobra welding combination.


Equipment displayed by lifting product specialist, Boecker UK (www.boecker.co.uk) included the PHC 940


20


model from its range of ALP personnel lifts. It offers a maximum working height of 9.45m with a payload capacity of up to 140kg. The machines are designed to be lightweight and can be fitted with accessories such as tool trays, wheels for different work surfaces, and an extending platform basket.


Boecker’s PHC 940 has a maximum payload capacity of 140kg.


Amongst several hirers exhibiting at Scotplant was Hubbway Hire (www.hubbwayhire.co.uk), whose stand was dominated by a Unimog Mercedes-Benz U430 multi-purpose all-wheel drive vehicle, The Northumberland-based hirer is evaluating it as an alternative to large tractors. Workshop Manager Phil Hickey said that “60-70% of large tractor hires are for civil engineering work rather than farming. The U430 delivers 300hp, has a top speed of 56mph and is significantly lighter than a comparable tractor, increasing payload capacity and reducing fuel consumption.”


Pramac-Generac UK will soon be adding to its range of DF Dust Fighters.


Also at the Show was a new hire business, Ally Blyth Plant Hire of Perth. Officially launched in March, its fleet includes Bobcat and Volvo mini excavators, Thwaites dumpers, Bobcat telescopic handlers and Indespension trailers. Operations Director Bobby Berwick told EHN that the business


(www.allyblythplanthire.co.uk) may look at opening other depots in the future - which reinforces the positive state of the market we referred to at the start of this article.
