It was 25 years ago that our company founder set out with a Bobcat 643 and started what is now today Skelton Plant Hire.  We’ll have more on this success story in future newsletters.  It is, however, quite poignant as we have reintroduced the Bobcat Compact Tracked Loader to our ever developing Hire Fleet.

Once again, it is our customers requirements that have driven the decision to invest in these versatile tool carriers.  We have future proofed the machines specification to accommodate further attachment requirements such as Ashphalt Planers, Trenchers and Brush Cutters.
The operating environment is a far cry from the machine our managing director operated all those years ago, a pressurised cab with Climate Control keeps the temperature just how you want it and the dust outside where it should be.  Linked to the SJC servo hand controls that can be changed by the flick of a switch from ISO standard to H pattern it makes for a controllable machine, even to the uninitiated operator.  An unusual option is the Track Suspension that smooths out the rough spots with these incredibly fast pieces of kit.  We’ve added Hi Flow Hydraulics to boost oil flow & pressure to certain attachments and a reliable Tier4 Kubota engine that maximises fuel efficiency and meets future emission standards.  All in all this is a very versatile machine with endless uses.
