Bateman Groundworks Expands Fleet With 20 New Terex Site Dumpers - continued

The latest Terex TA6 site dumpers have a more powerful and fuel-efficient 62.5 kW (84 hp) Stage 3A Perkins engine, leading to lower fuel bills and reduced exhaust emissions. The new engine powers the permanent four-wheel drive system through a four forward/four reverse Powershuttle transmission to provide an impressive 1 in 4 gradeability and a maximum speed of 27 km/h. Articulation of ±30° provides a 5.6 m turning radius at the outside of the skip while ±10.5° of oscillation keeps all four wheels in contact with the ground on even the roughest site.

Supplying dealer, CES, has recently extended its relationship with Terex to include the sale and support of backhoe loaders and mini excavators.

Complete Plant Hire rises like a pheonix from the former Doyle GroupComplete Plant Hire rises like a phoenix from the former Doyle Group

Born out of the demise of the Doyle Group which found itself in the hands of the administrators last year, Complete Plant Hire (CPH) has set its stall out with a comprehensive range of equipment and is already demonstrating a robust and healthy hire book going into 2013.

For co-directors, David Hazell (left), Paul Gaitely and Stephen Harvey, the formation of CPH has been somewhat of a challenge but the dividends are now swiftly beginning to pay off as they put the last 12 months behind them and concentrate on their new hire venture.

David Hazell, CPH   “Our first reaction at the collapse of the Doyle Group and Blythewood Plant was to attempt a management buy- out, but unfortunately this proved unsuccessful - as did an attempted purchase. We knew we could keep the plant side of things going so the three of us decided to go it alone and so CPH was born,” says David Hazell.

Becoming operational in September 2012 and not far from Blythewood’s old premises, CPH set up shop with an expansive yard, workshop facility and storage for their fleet when not on hire at nearby Cole Green. “It was important to stay close to our existing customer base and as such we’ve managed to retain a core of key customers as well as suppliers such as Volvo CE who have supported us through this metamorphosis,” continues David.

The Volvo package comprises of a comprehensive list of rollers and compact excavators ranging from 1.5 to 8.8 tonnes. In addition CPH has been helped by Volvo CE’s utility dealer Capital Plant Solutions in sourcing low houred quality second hand Volvo utility equipment to swell the fleet which now ranges from anything from a hand drill to a 9 tonne mini excavator.

“Within a short space of time we’ve now amassed some 150 items of mobile plant all of which are available for self-drive hire and to be honest, as we see things right now, we could do with a good deal more,” says David.
