News & latest additions to the family

With our commitment to quality, and listening to our customers, we are delighted to have added several new pieces of the latest releases from JCB over the past year, along with some other serious bits of kit that we think you’ll appreciate…

A Nice Gesture…

When the staff won a collective prize at Hamilton Races, they decided to donate it to a deserving cause. Who better to be the beneficiary than the “Angels” at the Beatson Cancer Charity? I am pleased to report a cheque for £250 was sent to this very inspirational cause that has touched many members of staff at a difficult time.

Thank you!

Unfortunately we were the victim of a Ransomware virus at the weekend and as such our system was down for the full day on Monday 15/5/17. I am pleased to say that everything is almost back up and running. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this exceedingly stressful time!

Another first in April

Among the 39 new items in April, we saw another first for Fraser Tool Hire. One of biggest customers asked if we could supply an Electric Start, Diesel Reversible Compaction Plate. After a word with our good friends at Wacker GB, they advised that they had just launched this…

Not Just Plant in February…

Its not just items of plant we invest in, below are some of the 49 items of new equipment that we put into our hire fleet in February!

Well we are Fraser Tool Hire after all!

Automatrics

On Monday (27/2/17) we were alerted to the possibility that one of our 3T Excavators had been stolen. After some initial investigation it began to look that indeed the machine wasn’t where it was meant to be. Fortunately the machine had a tracking device supplied by Automatrics. Once we contacted Automatrics, they put the unit into alarm and a short time later we obtained a GPS location. The machine was found by Lanarkshire Division Officers hidden in a field behind a building. It is fair to say that without this fantastic piece of technology, we would have not recovered the machine. Many thanks to both Automatrics and all of the Lanarkshire Division Officers concerned! We have further been advised that unfortunately we weren’t the only company targeted. One other machine stolen had a different tracking device fitted which was found and disabled by the thieves.  Attempts were made to find a tracking device on our machine as it was recovered with panels ripped off, damage to the control pods and damaged wiring. As the Automatrics unit is covert the thieves failed to locate it and as such we got the machine back!

*Given the ongoing police investigation and covert nature of the tracking device some details have been withheld.

March continues where February left off…

The 1st of March welcomes another new JCB 540-170, 17mtr Telehandler, the first, and no doubt not the last, 17 plate vehicle we will have.

Another new JCB 48z-1…

February might only have 28 days but we now have 107 Excavators!

February Investment Continues….

Its been a good steady start to the year inspiring the purchase of more machines! The latest Excavator being a new JCB 8025 ZTS, bringing the total to 106 excavators in our current hire fleet.

Also,

Another “specialist” piece of kit, a new Wacker Neuson RT, Remote Control Trench Roller. 13 of these now, hopefully not unlucky!
