Tough as they come….but still

Heavy & Small Plant Hire, High Performance Machinery, Equipment & Tools, Access & Accessories

At Rhino’s we provide a wide range of machinery, equipment and tools for just about any job you need to do. We cater for commercial companies, local authorities or domestic customers in places like St Albans, and are always ready with help and advice. Even so things can go wrong……and they do!

DIY or domestic customers use our heavy and small plant for things like constructing patios, driveways, garden refurbishments, new pathways, shed bases and installation of fencing. The most popular hires within this group are:-

  • Micro diggers
  • Skip loaders / high lift dumpers
  • Aluminum towers
  • Hilti breakers

As we said earlier our plant machinery and equipment can suffer from over enthusiastic handlers, sometimes with humorous results. The most common reasons our kit comes back damaged from domestic hires are: –

  1. Cable locator left on ground, digger run over it
  2. Aluminium tower components bent or damaged
  3. Damage to the bucket ram of a mini digger. [this is an exposed part that is chrome and full of seals. It is an integral part of the machine, around which hydraulic oil is pumped]

We of course don’t give our large mobile plant items to just anybody, and ask for 2 forms of ID before allowing hire of an 8t digger. The most prevalent forms of damage we see from industrial hires are:-

  1. Mini Diggers – parts hit include panels, rams, tracks, windows, mirrors and lights
  2. Dumpers – steering wheel hit, when loading with a digger
  3. Alum Towers – components bent and broken
  4. Hydraulic hoses on all machines get hit – diggers, dumpers etc
  5. Rams damaged on skid steers
  6. Small tools – power tools burnt out
  7. Equipment dropped and casings cracked
  8. Breaker steels snapped
  9. Power leads damaged by stuff dropped on them
  10. Light lenses smashedNeedless to say, health and safety is one of our priorities and we are members of the HAE and CPA. We also make sure that all of our items are fit for hire and that fitters and staff are doing their jobs correctly.
