Amongst our range of high quality Heavy Plant for hire, you will find a versatile selection of Bowsers. Fluids like petrol, oil, liquid bitumen and associated products, waste oil and biofuels, are required by law to be stored and transported following strict guidelines. Businesses failing in this are liable to be fined where the containers hold over 201 litres or more. They will also be forced by the Environment Agency to ensure that their fluids storage facility is brought up to required standards.
Schools, hospitals, churches and care homes are included in this regard, although there are many fluids and oils which do not come under these restrictions, so business owners are wise to check before making any arrangements. Our Bowsers provide safe and effective storage for any liquids subject to these storage rules. We offer 250 gallon and 500 gallon Road Tow Bowsers for hire, or for off road use, our Site Tow Bowsers come in 500 litre and 1,100 litre capacities. Bowsers are perfect for transporting liquids from A to B, and in emergencies such as when water shortages strike.
Where there is too much water, our range of Submersible Pumps are ideal, giving a smooth operation and fast results. Water build up and pooling especially in places like flat roofs and floors, can create an inconvenient and expensive problem, often putting work on hold. The 1” Sweeper Pump is a nifty little piece of portable equipment, and can remove water down to a level of 1mm. At Rhino you will also find Petrol Centrifugal Pumps, Diesel Water Pumps and Petrol Diaphragm Pumps.
Submersible Pumps, are an extremely effective means of carrying out site drainage, sewage pumping, industrial pumping and slurry pumping. Their unique design makes them impervious to water interfering with their efficiency, and they will work continuously in hostile environments, and harsh conditions. These include deep wells which present no problem to the pumps, as cables are completely waterproof and durable.
New construction companies in places like Watford, can sometimes struggle financially, as while trying to build up a good reputation as professionals, they will need to invest in heavy plant machinery. In addition, they may need to carry out a range of tasks on a single job, so one item of machinery is inadequate. They may need a digger, dumper, telehandler or bowser in order to offer a comprehensive range of services. They could also require smaller tools like generators, cutters, grinders, lighting or access equipment There aren’t always the funds for these type of investments, leaving owners in a dilemma.
The most sensible way to overcome these problems is to hire your heavy plant, small plant or tools. This way you can get on with the job in hand, while finding out if that particular item is something you would like to own. Once you have used certain machines and equipment, you will discover it’s ease of operation, comfort, cost effectiveness and efficiency. At Rhino, we have a high turnover of hire equipment, as we like to offer the latest models, so much of our second hand heavy plant is offered for sale. This means that customers can pick up an excellent bargain with a high performance machine that has many years of hard graft left in it.
Here at Rhinos Plant Hire, we’ve spent the last few years becoming one of the most knowledgeable firms on the Watford area plant hire scene. If you’re looking to hire anything from telehandlers to skidsteers or from dumpers to diggers, we’ve got them all – and they’re from top quality manufacturers, too.
Our range of dumpers, for example, is excellent. Our 6 ton dumper from Thwaites is a popular choice thanks to its 17.2mph maximum speed, while our 2 ton dumper is noted for being handy and versatile. And don’t forget to look at our range of mini excavators as well, such as our 2.5 ton dumper with a digging depth of 2740mm and a reduced tail swing option.
And what about our range of bowsers? With our site tow bowsers, road tow bowsers and many other variations available for hire in Watford, there are lots of options available no matter what sort of liquids you plan to move from place to place. We look forward to receiving your call or email and showing you how you can make the most of our plant hire range for your job here in Watford.
The multi million project redevelopment being carried out under the banner of ‘Intu Watford’, has progressed satisfactorily. As expected, the town centre expansion, including shops, restaurants and the cinema complex was completed in 2018. Greenhill Crescent has had a number of buildings demolished by Watford Borough Council who are the landowners. They intend to transform the area into a “modern, leading-edge home for business”. There will also be the addition of a car park with more than 80 spaces.
The project has a budget of £20m, and will include 7,100 square metres of commercial buildings with parking and a new road into the area. There will also be five warehouses, four smaller modular buildings and a cafe. The council will allow existing occupiers to continue undisturbed, but would also like to encourage businesses within TV, film, life sciences and manufacturing. Work on the various project sections is ongoing.
Watford town centre has had a major £110 million, state of the art redevelopment in the last few years, set to be completed by 2018. Fashion, food and leisure shops, restaurants, a ten pin bowling and a 9 screen IMAX Cineworld cinema are in the mix. Intu Watford will also have a multi storey car park so there will be no driving around for hours searching for a space. Over 5,000 tonnes of structural steel will be used for the development which will be carried out by building contractors Laing O’Rourke.
There was a bit of extra excitement during the construction too, as in August 2016, while digging, the AOC Archaeology Group unearthed an old well and water tank dating back from between 1700-1750 AD. The location of the Georgian find, was on the high street under Lloyds Bank! We wonder if they could use a submersible pump?
