PSS adds all terrain vehicles for harshest conditions

John Deere Gator XUV 855D

PSS Hire has added a new range of all terrain vehicles to its fleet offering in a bid to help utilities firms or their contractors complete work in challenging conditions.

Following investment of over £1 million, a number of different types of Specialist Vehicles are now available to hire. Described by PSS as being ideally suited for off-road work being carried out across the water, gas, electric and other utilities sectors, the new range extends from Segways and quad bikes through to Gators and Argocats up to Softrak ATVs and Hagglunds.

Mark Hamilton, director at PSS Hire said, “This is an exciting development for PSS Hire and our customers. For several years we’ve offered products such as large diameter butt fusion machines and overhead line equipment to remote utility projects. We’re now very pleased to be able to offer all terrain vehicles that complement our core range and help our customers complete their tasks more efficiently, even in the most inaccessible of environments.

“The John Deere Gators are already proving very popular, they have a bespoke capstan winch system and are capable of towing equipment on difficult terrain, even up steep gradients. The Argocat 8-wheel drive vehicles can also transport passengers on water, snow and ice, whilst at the larger end of the range the amphibious Hagglund BV206 and Softrak ATV are both fitted with two ton cranes, have optional tracked trailers and are designed to overcome the most rugged of terrains, marshes and rivers.”
