Our mantra since the creation of the business in 1983 is ‘going the extra mile’ in achieving customer satisfaction with Quality in everything we do.

Our telehandler range is over 30-strong, from compact models for accessing restricted sites to 4.9-tonne payload or 20m lift height machines. PLUS we can offer a vast accompanying choice of attachments.



Fraser Tool Hire would not be in business today without the solid customer base we have. Providing the right equipment at the right price, in the right condition, maintains repeat business and our extensive fleet of JCB machines is vital in providing the service our customers expect.



LiveLink benefits everyone with INCREASED UPTIME, IMPROVED FLEET CONTROL and GREATER SECURITY with cloud-based tracking of vehicles providing an alert when a machine is on the move.

Stolen plant recovered

Current estimates say that construction tool and plant theft is costing UK businesses up to £1.5million each week and this is predicted to rise. The construction industry estimates that plant is stolen every year to the value of £70million.

We use a M-track unit supplied by Automatrics. These are small, self-contained, non-descript units that can be fitted anywhere on a machine. Requiring no external power source, they can be fitted to an item of plant without an engine or battery. Over the years Automatics have been successful in recovering stolen items on behalf of Fraser Tool Hire.

The latest recovery was of a set of Temporary Traffic Lights on hire to South Lanarkshire Council. On being advised of the theft Automatrics set about finding the units and help Police Scotland recover a stolen van too!

A video of the recovery can been watched here >

Great Company brilliantly managed by owner Colin and his first class team!

Well done to all at Fraser Tool Hire. Remember when it was Fraser Plant in the Station Yard, Strathaven with Colin and his late dad at the helm. Good times.
