We use Atlas Copco Hydraulic Breakers for their reliability and popularity with our customers, and we can give guidance on the correct size of Mini Excavator to use these with. Pulverisers do a great job of crushing even reinforced concrete with minimal effort, and Pulverisers for use with our Mini Excavators have a number of high quality features not seen in inferior brands. Grapples can move and manipulate bulky waste and timber, and Hydraulic Augers are perfect for use when drilling large holes in the ground for fencing and landscaping.
It is crucial to hire your Heavy and Small Plant machinery and tools from a company who follow safety procedures with their hire equipment. This involves regular inspection of all parts and swift repairs where necessary. There have been cases in the past where this has not been the case allowing defective mechanisms, loose or missing parts and procedures not observed.
A case in 2013, demonstrated what can happen when vehicles or equipment which is below standard is hired by unsuspecting individuals. A person hired a mini digger which overturned, throwing him from the vehicle and causing injuries. On investigation, the Health and Safety Executive found that the vehicle had no seat belt, a missing bolt rendered the anti roll facility ineffective, and an engine cover situated underneath the drivers seat was not secured. The hirer also had no instructions or knowledge of how to operate the machine, leaving him highly vulnerable. This is an extreme set of circumstances, but indicates the sort of thing that can go wrong and why attention to detail is essential. Rhino ensure that all of our fit for purpose machinery is safe and that all parts and fittings are working properly.
Southend has in recent years seen a number of exciting new building projects, one of the most successful being a state of the art centre for the community. A library containing a vast amount of books, records and archives, and a stimulating place for all to learn and experience is encompassed in The Forum, situated in the town centre. The construction is the result of a £27m scheme embarked upon by the University of Essex, South Essex College and Southend-on-Sea Borough Council.
Since The Forum opened in 2013, it has been fully utilised and has an active schedule of events and fun things to do. There are cutting edge workshops, art exhibitions, film screenings and children’s competitions to name but a few.
