  • AVS Anti-Vibration System on all handles
  • Soft-start
  • No-load spped limitation
  • Lock-on switch
  • Service indicator light
  • Speed pre-selection switch

New Silenced Generators

Stephill SE6000D/4 generatorsThese two new Stephill SE6000D/4 generators joined the fleet in October.

Fitted with Yanmar L100 diesel engines they provide 5.5kva of electricity in either 110v or 240v. The engines are mounted within a fully enclosed weatherproof acoustic cabinet to reduce noise levels, allowing them to comply with EC noise legislation.

The SE6000D/4 is fitted with a 24 litre fuel tank that gives an approximate running time at full load of 13 hours.

A Stephill SE6000D/4 5.5kva diesel generator can be hired at £80 per week (less applicable discount) + vat.

The 5.5kva diesel generator can be found in the Generators, Welders & Cutting Equipment section of our hire catalogue.

New Bomag Compaction Double

The 120AD-4 is Bomag’s latest specification roller at this drum width. It boasts the latest Kubota engine for a smoother operating experience and Bomag’s new variable spped sprinkler system.

The BT60/4 rammer is fitted with a 4-stroke engine so the problems traditionally suffered by 2-stroke rammers are avoided.

The 120AD-4 can be hired at £180 per week and the BT60/4 at £60 per week, both less applicable discount and + vat.
