PROFESSIONAL Plant Services Ltd, the Roydon, Essex based specialist equipment rental firm, has completed the design and development of a brand new restricted access piling rig powered by a Hatz 4H50TIC Silent Pack water-cooled, low- emission, diesel engine.
Entitled the Warrior, this brand new piece of machinery has been specifically designed by Professional Plant Services engineers for piling in basements or for underpinning in confined areas. The rig is fully remote controlled and is driven by a Hatz 4H50TIC Silent Pack water-cooled diesel engine. The project was completed over a 12-week period and the Warrior is available from the Professional Plant Services rental fleet or to purchase outright.
Commenting on this latest innovation, Karl Dunstan, Managing Director, Professional Plant Services said: “We have utilised our many years of experience in the piling and foundation industry to bring together a model that has all the features and benefits needed to deliver low emission, safe and efficient drilling in confined areas.”
Professional Plant Services chose the Hatz water-cooled engine to power the Warrior principally because of the engine’s suitability, robustness and for the after sales support provided by Hatz GB.
The Warrior has now completed all the pre-launch tests and is now available to purchase or rent nationwide.
Karl added: “Ensuring that a large percentage of our fleet has the same engine enables us to carry fewer parts and the fitters are familiar with the engine. The most important aspect is when we or our customers have an issue it needs resolving quickly and we need a manufacturer who can support the same service excellence that we aspire to.”
Professional Plant Services Ltd was formed in 2006. The company has a wealth of experience within the construction industry specialising in foundation equipment. They offer specialist piling equipment hire, alongside general plant and tool hire. The company also has a full fabrication and machine shop capability for the manufacture of bespoke piling rigs.
