At Rhinos Plant Hire, we specialise in hiring outstanding machinery and equipment manufactured by major players like Bobcat. This is one of the reasons we have been able to build such a positive reputation and become leaders in our field. Bobcat [whose parent company is Doosan] are a world renowned producer of compact construction machinery, and plays a prominent role within our fleet. This manufacturer is well known within construction, landscaping, grounds maintenance, local authority, industrial and mining sectors. With their origins firmly rooted in North Dakota, USA, they now have facilities globally in places like the Czech Republic, France and China.
Being synonymous with durability and dependability, Bobcat machinery has earned the widely used nickname ‘One Tough Animal’. So named since 1962 this machinery offers an uncompromising versatility and superior design.
Bobcat Skid Steers are to be found on many building sites where a reliable and efficient solution is crucial. They can never be accused of letting the grass grow, as continual technical development is a priority. Bobcat Skid Steer loaders feature powerful vertical-lift, excellent breakout forces, fast cycle times and upgraded lifting capabilities. Operator comfort is also important, and is demonstrated by a spacious air-conditioned cab fitted with intuitive controls. These machines are extremely labour saving, light and easily manoeuvred, ideal for a wide range of tough jobs.
Along with the standard bucket attachment, a variety of other attachment tools mean even greater flexibility. These machines can be used for excavating, demolition, lifting and carrying.
Whether carrying out major construction projects or landscaping a smaller garden area they tick all the boxes. A key feature of these machines is the way the operator has total control over movement. This is partly due to the configuration of the wheels on those versions, with the front and back axles of each side locked in synchronization with each other. These can operate independently to the opposite wheels, and to turn the vehicle one set of wheels is increased in speed. This steering action is where the machine gets its name as the wheels skid across the ground.
They are unlikely to cause damage to ground//pavement/road surfaces thanks to their lightweight frame.
When it comes to the question of whether to buy or hire, there are a few considerations, the first of course being the likely frequency of use. Many large and small building companies along with new starts prefer to hire for financial reasons. In addition, the decision to buy includes any attachments too which can be pricey. If you discover that you are needing a Skid Steer the majority if the time, consider purchasing one. There are a few issues around ownership though such as depreciation, storage, maintenance, repairs, insurance, security etc. These expenses can add up considerably, so think carefully about buying as opposed to hiring.
Hiring before you buy can provide a beneficial insight into a machine, giving you the feel of it and helping with your decision. Perhaps you would like to consider purchasing a second hand piece of plant machinery. We sell our used plant at very attractive knock down prices, and they are expertly maintained and have many years of service left. Call us for a chat on 01277 372 626
