Laois Hire Group Managing Director Michael Killeen says that feedback from customers has been very positive. “This new 13-ton digger has a multitude of hi-tech features, which improve safety and efficiency on site. Multi-vision cameras give the operator a 360-degree view, and the double locking quick hitch and Seat Belt Beacon provide a higher level of Health & Safety than the average excavator.”
Other features include:
- Vandal Guards
- Multiple Mirrors
- Easy access to the engine compartment
- User-friendly fuel filter
Also recently added to the fleet were new Hamm 8 Rollers, 30-ton Bomag Rollers, 6-ton and 9-ton dumpers, generators and smaller equipment, such as Jumping jacks, Wacker Plates and Roadsaws.
Michael outlines the strategy Laois Hire take when purchasing new items for hire. “We only buy from quality brands and believe that continual investment is essential. We consistently have new kit, large and small, flowing into our branches in order to maintain our excellent stock, ready to hire. An up-to-date fleet combined with nationwide service is essential to ensuring our customers receive excellent service throughout all stages of the hiring process.
“Going forwards, a major area of focus for us is reducing emissions and emphasizing product innovation and safety. We are continually introducing lower-emission products to our portfolio, such as electric, solar charging and hybrid equipment. We regularly top up our range of Hilti equipment which has Anti Vibration Reduction (AVR), helping to avoid the risk of Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome.”
Mobile and sustainable X-Eco Lighting towers.
Coming into the winter, investment will be focused on areas such as lighting, pumping and power generation.
“Our X-Eco Lighting Towers are the most innovative and sustainable lighting towers around,” Michael says. “These towable diesel lights allow contractors to benefit from major fuel savings and an increased run time of 400% whilst also reducing their CO2 emissions.”
