Alutower access equipment in operation - see it at the EHS

CLM Construction Supplies will be at the Executive Hire Show this week showing its range of lifting, cutting and mixing equipment.

Managing director Bob Hughes said: “We can supply a wide range of equipment for construction and refurbishment sites for lifting, cutting and mixing along with their accessories. All equipment is manufactured according to the latest European directives and is supplied with the relevant (CE) certificate of conformity.

“We now stock a competitive small builder’s concrete mixer in 110v or 240v for small to medium builders or the DIY market.

“Since moving into our new premises in 2014 we have expanded our range of equipment to include access equipment and also LED portable construction site lights in both mains and battery formats.”

Over the last six-years CLM has   expanded the distribution of Imer, Maber, Lockhard and Bocker construction equipment in the UK. The company specialises in cutting, lifting and mixing and access equipment to the hire market as well as end-users ensuring it supplies the correct equipment to give the best solution   for specific customers’ needs.

Mr Hughes said: “Our staff has over 50 years’   experience of supplying the construction industry in plant and equipment from the above companies. Key personnel are also trained to manufacturer’s standards on repair, maintenance and operation of the equipment we supply.

“The move has now enabled us to have a greater availability of our product lines. We now distribute across the UK and Ireland next day or two to three days from order for goods which we carry in stock.”

The company is a member of the main industry bodies: CPA, CHIG, HAE, ensuring that it is up-to-date on current regulations/legislation along with any potential future changes within the industry.

CLM now also offers training on use and the repair/service and erection of all the equipment it supplies, either at the company’s premises – on the Barton Industrial Estate, Etruria Way in Bilston – at its customer’s premises or on-site.

Makita launch new 4-Stroke Back-Pack Blower

February 3, 2017

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 10:09 am

See Makita at the Executive Hire Show with new Innovations

The new Makita EB7660TH back-pack blower has increased air flow and air speed, with the maximum power output speed from the innovative Makita MM4 75.6cc 4-stroke engine increased to 7,200rpm. Maximum air flow volume is raised to 20m³/min and the maximum air speed velocity increased to 92m/s. Vibration has been reduced to 3.5m/s² with the engine mounted on four damper springs effectively isolating the engine and fan to reduce vibration on the operator’s back, even during long hours of use. The back-pack carry frame has a comfortable harness with adjustable straps. The long telescopic pipe and nozzle gives accurate control of the airflow, and the extended distance from the nozzle to the throttle grip avoids the static electric shock risk created by the air exiting the nozzle.

This latest Makita back-pack blower, which replaces the EB7650TH model, is powered by the MM4 4-stroke engine which delivers 3.0Kw of power; has a diaphragm carburettor for total reliability; and a decompression valve and primer pump for easy starting.  It is highly sustainable with environmentally friendly low noise output, has exceptionally low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions in compliance with EPA Phase 2 and EU stage 2 regulations. An anti-icing valve directs air warmed by the exhaust to prevent the carburettor icing up in cold environments.

Weighing just 10.9kg without fuel, the new Makita EB7660TH back-pack blower is a hardworking and technically superior machine for the professional landscape maintenance contractor.

Other innovations at the Executive Hire Show will include additions to the 18V Li-Ion range incorporating brushless motor technology, extending the running time and life of the tool. Makita will also be showcasing solutions to dust management with its new range of M-Class units and associated accessories.

The Executive Hire Show takes place next week on 8th & 9th February 2017 at its established Ricoh arena home.  Registration is still open – and it’s FREE!

The innovative Armorgard Rubble Truck at the Executive Hire Show

February 2, 2017

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 7:00 am

Armorgard considered the issues of moving heavy materials around building and construction site areas.

The Armorgard multi-purpose Rubble Truck is the natural choice for moving on-site waste materials and rubble. There is nothing in the market to compare with its unique in-built tipping feature, extra strength, welded, crane lifting eyes and space-saving stackable design.

Armorgard considered the issues of moving heavy materials around building and construction site areas. The need for in-built tipping with easy manoeuvrability was clearly identified but more than that, a vehicle handling the day-to-day punishment of its working environment has to be tough and robust. The Rubble Truck is engineered for heavy use and constructed using 2mm steel with powder coating to withstand the harshest conditions.

While strength and robust construction are primary criteria, the Rubble Truck is ergonomically designed for maximum performance and efficiency.  It has a huge 400 litre scoop and 750kg weight loading capacity, yet it is easy for one person to manoeuvre and tip, with a choice of solid rubber or pneumatic wheels. Rubber buffers protect the sides of the truck. At the end of the day space is always at a premium, both on-site and for the hire fleet, and this issue is tackled with the unique, stackable design.

Getting to know Point of Rental Software at the EHS

February 1, 2017

Filed under: Latest News — Louise @ 5:01 pm

Point of Rental Software exhibit at the Executive Hire Show for the first time.

Point of Rental Software, a newcomer to the European market with their acquisition and integration of Syrinx, offers 500+ years of combined staff experience in the hire industry within its offices to support its customers all around the world.

The organization say it is built on five key principles: honesty, integrity, dedication, responsibility, and transparency. These principles have guided Point of Rental as it expands its product line to serve more people, adds offices sharing the same values, and provides extraordinary customer support, from training new businesses to supporting long-term customers with onsite training or phone support.

In 2016, the company’s support team provided over 1 million minutes of direct phone support, ensuring Point of Rental customers ran efficiently and improved their businesses.

Point of Rental employees are consistently encouraged to develop new skills, and the programming team keeps their certifications up-to-date to ensure they’re providing customers the best product available in the hire industry.

Employees can take advantage of the company’s continuing education programme, which provides money for employees enhancing their job skills at a local university with night courses. The staff are also heavily involved in trade associations and attend learning conferences relevant to their jobs.

Investment in Point of Rental’s employees has helped the company grow from 20 employees just four years ago to more than 100 today, all while maintaining excellence standards.

When it comes to product development, in 2016, Point of Rental saw a need for a new ERP hire software. Businesses are currently using outdated UNIX-based products, and Point of Rental built Rental Elite, a customizable software built to handle the largest hire companies.

The company acquired UK based Syrinx, which has a similar track record of innovation and support; it is integrating European needs like operator hire apps into their products coming from America, where operator hire isn’t often used. The team uses agile programming to update their software often, ensuring customers are served with features they can’t get elsewhere.

In 2016, Rental Essentials added a Kiosk feature, dozens of integrations, and expanded their app to really become an integral part of a hire shop. Rental Expert added the first known Customer Rewards app, allowing companies to automatically calculate future percentage rewards for their customers.

They’ve also added blind- and double-blind scanning to the contract fulfillment app: Even if 30 customers come in and drop off equipment at the same time, with RFID technology and a scanner, the software can automatically assign equipment to the proper contract and return it.

Rental Elite, as mentioned above, was created as the newest ERP software of the hire industry, allowing large and innovative corporations customisable options to fit their specific infrastructure.

Syrinx, too, was updated, adding a Driver and Workbench app to help ensure everyone in the maintenance process had quick access to update equipment status. Driver even allows operators to clock in and out from a job site. All in all, Point of Rental Software’s 2016 additions keep its customers ahead of their competition with innovation and vigilant support.

You can also visit stand C125 at The Executive Hire Show to see all these products in action.

The Executive Hire Show takes place next week on 8th & 9th February 2017 at its established Ricoh arena home.  Registration is still open – and it’s FREE!
