Skelton Plant Hire Ltd has evolved over the years from one machine, (and one man!), and a Bobcat Skid-steer loader, to hundreds of machines and a growing workforce. It’s testament to this continuing and sustainable growth that we’re not shy of investing in our clients requirements, whether this be adding additional units of an existing machine to meet demand or diversifying into new types of equipment. In one respect we’ve gone full circle, after divesting of our skid steer fleet in the noughties, we reinvested to satisfy the market for the Solar Farm boom in more recent times.
Joining the fleet most recently are agricultural tractors and a variety of trailed and mounted attachments to meet specific market requirements. Working on the recently proposed Lower Thames Crossing, a second tunnel under the River Thames to provide an additional link from North Kent to Essex, we have provided John Deere tractors and also JCB telehandlers with rear pick up hitches to tow various trailers and bowsers. We now offer this plant for general hire, with or without a CPCS operator.
To give you a flavour of some of the machinery available, we have the John Deere 6170R 4WD Tractor c/w 50kph Gearbox and air brakes, Bailey Flat 10 Bale Trailers, NC 16T Low loader Trailers, NC 16T Heavy Duty Dump Trailers, Major 7600 litre Vacuum Tanker and Marston 6500 litre Water Bowsers, these can all be viewed on our website here.
The telehandlers are high horsepower and capable of legally towing on the highway. Equipped with hydraulic trailer breaking and road lighting connections they open up the versatility and make for a useful piece of kit both on site and on the road.
As part of this service we have and can provide experienced CPCS qualified tractor and telehandler drivers and, as with all our fleet, this is backed up by a dedicated support team of Service Engineers and HGV drivers, who between them have decades of experience and a catalogue of qualifications awarded to them along the way.
If any of this equipment can be of use to you or maybe you have a requirement for something that we don’t already offer, we are only a phone call away.
