A-Plant’s investment trail continues


A-PLANT has continued to invest in its hire fleet by making an additional £3 million investment in telehandlers manufactured by Manitou.

The new machines have been delivered to and are now available to hire from A-Plant Service Centres across the country.

Andrew Winlow, Director of Purchasing and Fleet Management said, “The great advantage of the new Manitou telehandlers is their compact design, allowing them to be used on construction sites with restricted room for manoeuvre, such as inner city developments. The larger models we have purchased have compact stabilisers which always remain within the working width of the machine whatever the position. This investment has allowed us to update and enhance our telehandler fleet and offer our customers the latest models available with compliance to Stage IIIB/Tier 4 regulations.”

Manitou’s Marketing Manager Paul Bidwell added, “Our telehandlers are renowned for being reliable and offer a number of benefits such as an ergonomically designed cab to ensure maximum operator comfort and a JSM (Joystick Switch and Move) control, which allows all boom and hydraulic functions plus forward and reverse direction to be completed from a single control, enabling smooth and positive handling combined with the benefit of the driver always having one hand on the steering wheel.”
