Seddons Plant & Engineers Showcasing Two Brand New Ultra-Quiet Honda 110V Portable Generators at the Executive Hire Show.

February 3, 2016

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 11:28 am

 The Honda EU10i 110V model delivers 0.9kW of clean, quiet electricity to power sensitive equipment, whilst the Honda EU17i 110V delivers 1.6kW of smooth, clean power for more demanding applications. The two new models will be on display on stand C85 at the Executive Hire Show and are particularly suited for markets including tool hire, rail and transport, fire and rescue, police and forensics, as well as other organisations involved in emergency prevention, response and recovery.

Both the Honda EU10i and Honda EU17i are ultra-quiet in operation and the fully enclosed, sound reducing casing keeps noise down to just 52 decibels at 7 metres, which is quieter than normal conversational speech. Rubber feet minimise vibration and movement and Honda’s state-of-the-art Inverter technology allows the EU10i and EU17i to remain much smaller and lighter than comparable models, allowing them to be super portable and carried with ease.

Seddons Plant & Engineers Showcasing Two Brand New Ultra-Quiet Honda 110V Portable Generators.

The smaller EU10i model is just 13kg in weight and is powered by an efficient Honda 4-stroke engine with a 2.1 litre fuel tank. Honda’s unique EcoThrottle extends fuel economy further by allowing the generator to idle, speeding up only when there is demand for more power. This feature cuts down noise and fuel use, saving users money as well as giving extended periods of power without refuelling. The EU10i model provides 8.3 hours running time on a single tank and is suitable for powering all sorts of tools and equipment, including sensitive electronic equipment.

The EU17i is powerful enough to run larger equipment, yet at 21kg it can be carried with ease. Powered by a Honda 4-stroke engine with a 3.6 litre fuel tank, it runs for over 10 hours on a single tank of fuel, ensuring minimal fuel costs and maximum engine life. Like the EU10i, the unique EcoThrottle runs only as fast as the load demands, improving fuel consumption and extending engine life.

Stephen Seddon, Managing Director of Seddons Plant & Engineers Ltd said: “There has been a great deal of demand from our customers for 110V Portable Generators, so we are excited to have these two new models at the Executive Hire Show. We have no doubt they will prove popular for tool hire and for use by the Emergency Services in particular, as they’re highly portable but very powerful, whilst remaining super quiet in operation.”

JCB Unveils Next Generation 4-6 tonne Midi Excavators.

January 29, 2016

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 9:24 am

Building on the successful introduction of next generation 6, 8, 9 and 10 tonne midi excavators last year, JCB is releasing four additional models, with operating weights of 4.8-5.7 tonnes. The midi excavators are available in conventional, reduced and zero tailswing configurations, to meet the requirements of customers across the world.

Key features include:

·        500 hour greasing intervals
·        Improved cab instrumentation
·        18% increase in 57C operator’s cab capacity
·        11% improvement in visibility
·        9% boost to bucket tearout
·        5% additional dump height
·        2% more powerful bucket tearout force

Durable Performance
The four new models are; the 48Z-1, which replaces the previous 8045Z/8050ZTS; the 51R-1 to replace the 8050ZTS/RTS; the 55Z-1, which takes over from the 8055ZTS/RTS; and a completely new 57C-1 model. All four share the durable design proven on the larger machines in JCB’s next generation compact excavator range, with 100% steel bodywork and a sturdy four-plate dipper arm construction.

 

JCB Unveils Next Generation 4-6 tonne Midi Excavators.

The dig end is 100% bushed, leading to extended 500 hour greasing intervals. JCB has also revised the pin pick-up points to work with a number of competitive bucket brands, while optional hydraulic or manual quickhitches can be specified for faster attachment changeover. JCB has developed a new range of ECO buckets, with a redesigned profile for easier filling and improved material retention.

The excavators feature a redesigned dig end, with a longer main boom and shorter dipper arm, to provide up to 5% greater dump height for easier truck and site dumper loading. The upgraded hydraulic system also delivers up to 9% more bucket tearout force and 2% higher dipper arm tearout, boosting performance and productivity.

Operator Comfort And Control
The excavators feature an improved operator’s cab, with the 57C-1 using the same structure as the larger 10 tonne machine. The cab is 18% more spacious and offers up to 11% more visibility, improving both comfort and site safety. Even in reduced and zero tailswing configurations, JCB’s midi excavators deliver impressive levels of comfort for the driver, with reduced noise and vibration levels and easily-replaced flat glazing throughout.

The biggest development in the cab is the adoption of a new display screen and control system, with an automotive style rotary controller allowing easy access to a host of systems and information. The operator can set auxiliary hydraulic flows for two separate attachments from the cab, while the menu mode button switches the rotary controller between throttle modes, including a one-touch idle function and menu mode.

The cab is also offered with a new membrane switch panel, to control auxiliary flow settings, working lights, beacon, wipers and JCB’s 2Go additional hydraulic activation safety system. As with JCB’s larger JS excavators, the midi machines now have nine power modes available, including Eco and for the first time an H+ heavy digging mode. The machines can also be ordered ready for tilt-rotator installation from the factory, with a programmable third auxiliary function.

Another innovation is the inclusion of an optional Safe Lift feature, complete with an integral Lift Overload warning system. An industry first at this weight, Safe Lift incorporates a green-amber-red graphic in the new monitor panel, with an audible warning that sounds if the machine approaches overload. Expected to be a popular option across Europe, the Safe Lift feature is included as standard when hose burst check valves have been specified, ensuring maximum safety for those customers that use the midi machines to lift pipes and other materials on site.

Productivity has been further enhanced with the adoption of an electro-hydraulic dozer control lever, with up to three buttons in the head to control two-speed tracking, dozer float and a four-way adjustable dozer blade where fitted. The sturdy, ergonomically designed lever has a large diameter and improved resistance, to deliver improved response and more accurate control on rough ground. Separate buttons in the control lever head activate the machines’ standard ‘auto kick-down’ two-speed tracking, along with optional dozer float and four-way blade control.

The new JCB midi excavators feature 20 improved standard features and 20 new options, to improve productivity and performance on site. The cab can be equipped with optional LED work lights that feature a ‘guide-me-home’ function, providing lighting for three minutes after the machine has been turned off to allow the operator to get to a position of safety when working at night. Other safety options include a green seatbelt in use beacon and seatbelt isolation.

Low Cost Of Ownership
All four excavators can be supplied with a choice of Stage IIIA/Tier 4 Interim Perkins engines, or Tier 4 Final engines from JCB by Kohler, to suit various territories. The Perkins engine delivers 35.7kW (48hp) and 143Nm of torque, while the JCB by Kohler engine produces 36kW (48hp) and 225Nm.

Access to the engine has been improved thanks to wide opening steel canopies at the rear and to the side of the machine. The new cab also features a removable floor section, requiring no tools, to access major hydraulic components. A fully bushed dig end with 500 hour greasing intervals also reduces downtime and daily maintenance, cutting total cost of ownership for the customer and increasing productivity.

The machines feature an open undercarriage design with sloping track frames for easy cleaning and to prevent the build-up of material.  All models are available with JCB’s LiveLink telematic monitoring and location service, providing customers with machine working hour data, fuel level and consumption information and a host of critical system alerts.

Kubota UK is set to exhibit its latest construction machinery at the 2016 Executive Hire Show, including its new range of wheel loaders and track dumpers.

A total of 11 new machines will enter the UK market throughout the next few months, marking the first time that Kubota has launched a whole range of wheel loaders in the company’s history. The development of the machines is set to cement the company’s position in the construction market across the UK and Ireland.

The RT Series Wheel Loaders have been designed to ensure efficiency and flexibility across a range of tasks and incorporate a 45-degree articulation-oscillating angle for easy access into small spaces without damaging surfaces.

A total of 11 new Kubota machines will enter the UK market in the coming months.

The new Track Dumpers added to the line up include the KC250HR-4, suitable for construction professionals wanting a compact and powerful machine with the ability to transport large amounts of material in a short space of time with its 84-degree dumping angle.

Neil Winfield, Kubota Construction’s Business Development Manager, said: “At Kubota we’re always developing highly versatile machines that can be used alongside our mini-excavators and utility vehicles for a complete on-site solution.

“The engines and construction departments will be working alongside each other on the stand to demonstrate to visitors how Kubota Original engines can boost performance and enhance productivity when used in conjunction with different types of machinery.”

The new additions to Kubota’s construction equipment offering will sit alongside its world-renowned oil cooled diesel, water-cooled diesel and dual fuel engines.

The KX and U Series Kubota excavators are the most reliable and quality machinery on the market, whilst the company’s engine range, used in Kubota machines and also across a host of original equipment manufacturers, are designed to offer maximum fuel efficiency, minimal noise and vibration, as well as low emission levels to meet current regulations.

MCS Workshop Mobile transforms ‘in the field’ maintenance and repair operations.

January 27, 2016

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 5:19 pm

MCS, has launched a revolutionary mobile app that simplifies and automates a hire company’s Workshop and Maintenance function. MCS Workshop Mobile enables workshop fitters ‘in the field’ to view and update their works orders in real-time, ensuring jobs are carried out to the highest standard. The Android-based app also allows Workshop Managers to allocate works orders ‘live’ to the most suitable engineer and view the status of all workshop jobs.

MCS Workshop Mobile transforms ‘in the field’ maintenance and repair operations.

Guy van der Knaap, Managing Director of MCS, comments: “Equipping your workshop fitters with the latest smart phone technology means they can update the status of workshop orders ‘on the spot’, add associated notes, order spare parts and synchronise this information with the MCS-rm hire management system.”

Guy continues, “The app eliminates the need to print out works orders and checklists, and helps improve data integrity and duty of care obligations. Depot Managers can analyse the overall efficiency of the workshop, gain up-to-date visibility of their engineers’ activities and increase control over their resources, resulting in better communication and new operational efficiencies.”

MCS Workshop Mobile has evolved through MCS’ recent partnership with BigChange, providers of mobile workforce management solutions, and draws upon their powerful GPS vehicle tracking and resource scheduling technology. Martin Port, CEO of BigChange adds, “With MCS, we have developed a really strong partnership built on similar values and leading edge technology.”

Nixon Hire, a leading UK rental company that specialise in the hire of plant, tools, accommodation units, portable toilets and site equipment, has recently made the MCS Workshop Mobile app available to its Repair and Maintenance team:

“Using the MCS Mobile Workshop made complete sense,” says David Balmer, Project Manager at Nixon Hire. “The key driver for us was letting our Workshop Engineers access their works orders in the field, which frees up time to focus on the job in hand, reducing the demand for paperwork and provides a much better service to our customers.”

The hire industry is experiencing a rapid acceleration in the adoption of mobile technology to manage their everyday operations and activities. MCS Workshop Mobile forms part of larger suite of mobile apps that MCS are developing to streamline different business functions within a hire company, from sales and marketing to transport and logistics.

The MCS Workshop Mobile solution will be officially launched at the Executive Hire Show 2016 and will be available to view on stand C70 along with their industry leading MCS-rm hire management software.

Trailer Engineering says it has been in the forefront of Bowser manufacture for over 40 years and continues to develop new and innovative products.  This year the company has chosen the Executive Hire Show as a launch platform for two new products.

Last years’ show was a huge success with the launch of the 950 litre Polycube fuel storage solution creating a demand for a larger version.

Trailer Engineering is showcasing a 2000 litre Polycube

At this year’s show Trailer Engineering is showcasing a 2000 litre model. All of its fuel bowser range use polyethylene inner tanks as this helps to keep the fuel clean and free from contamination, it also reduces condensation which makes them the obvious choice.

The second new product being showcased at the 2016 Show is the Water Cube.  Stop those winter freeze ups with a built-in automatic heating system that stops the tank contents, pipes and pump from freezing and comes complete with an on demand pump and external connections for water and electricity supply, which comes in 110v or 240v options.

The Water Cube is making its EHS debut.

All of Trailer Engineering cubes, whether water or fuel, are fully inter stackable to save storage space.

Trailer Engineering offer a full range of water and fuel bowsers to suit your needs and a warm welcome awaits every visitor to the stand.
