Whether you’re running a complex building site with lots of different tools required or you’re simply renovating part of your home or garden, heavy plant comes in useful in a variety of situations. That’s why here at Rhinos we’ve got a large choice of heavy plant available for hire. And with over a decade of experience assisting the people of St Albans with their plant hire requirements, we’ll help you find what you need.
If you need a dumper, for example, we’ve got it. Our dumpers come in various sizes ranging from small two-ton Thwaites dumpers with beacons, frames and seatbelts to larger, nine-ton versions with maximum speeds of 18.7mph. Those looking for skidsteers, meanwhile, can select from our collection which boasts famous brand names like Bobcat and CAT. With all kinds of accessories on offer like sweeper collector brushes, grapple buckets and pallet forks, too, you’ll be able to get your plant customised perfectly when hiring tools from us in St Albans. And if you’re looking to excavate anything from mounds of earth to heavy blocks of concrete, why not have a look at our range of mini diggers fully equipped with the attachments you need like pulverisers, hydraulic breakers and more.
When it comes to working on smaller, more compact projects, hiring heavy plant can seem like an inefficient way to get the job done – even if you need the power that only a machine can bring. That’s why we have a large selection of small plant available for hire here in St Albans: these high-quality machines can give you the assistance you need on site without the complexities or power of a larger model.
Take our angle grinders, for example. These 230 millimetre products are perfect for cutting into almost all popular types of building material, but they come with a maximum depth of 75 millimetres – meaning you’ll be able to get your job done easily and simply. Our AVR breakers tell a similar story: manufactured by leading brand Hilti, these devices come with an A-weighted emission sound pressure level of 94 decibels and a top level hammering frequency of around 860 impacts per minute – which means there’s a lot of power in this small device.
We also have a wide range of other small tools available, such as tip up mixers, floor saws, podium steps and more. If you’re not sure exactly what plant will suit your site, we’re on hand to help: just give us a call or email us today to find out more.
In 2017, it was announced that St Albans City and District Council had given planning permission for a number of affordable homes to be constructed in the area around Langley Gove and St Leonards in Sandridge.
Just one in a series of recently-announced affordable home schemes, it comes as part of a £5.7m plan to turn old garages which have largely fallen out of use into places for people to live. Another of these recent developments, the construction of 25 homes for social tenants which are being built in Batchwood in the north of the city, were due to be finished by March 2018.
Councillors welcomed the developments, and said it was good to see that progress was being made. “The conversion of disused garage sites into homes is one of our priority projects and great progress is being made,” said Councillor Brian Ellis, the Council’s Portfolio Holder for Housing.
“It is very exciting that we are providing much-needed affordable housing for people who are in housing need,” he added.
