Best Ever Month in March

We owe all our customers a big thank you for helping to make March 2004 the most successful month Didcot Plant has ever had.

The revenue from hire exceeded the previous best set in October 2001.

The combination of a long month, good weather, the Free of Charge Transport offer and our usual high standards of service helped to keep us busier than ever.

Blade for all Reasons

The ZD11 Duo is unique in that it offers the ability to give a high level of cutting performance whatever the material. And unlike conventional blades it can deal with both tarmac and concrete, as well as bricks, slabs and tiles. It also handles reinforced concrete.

The only potential negative factor is the initial cost at £140 + vat for the 9″ and £240 + vat for the 12″. But when you consider that you only need the one blade for many applications and the increased life expectancy (10mm of diamond compared to the usual 6.5mm) it could save to be a money saver in the long run.
