Good reliability and performance leads to more orders

Good reliability and performance leads to more orders from M T Kaill (Plant Hire) Ltd

Stockport based M T Kaill (Plant Hire) Ltd has taken delivery of twenty two Volvo compact excavators as part of a package including rollers and site dumpers from Volvo dealer - PPS Construction Plant Sales Ltd.

This is the third wave of brand new Volvo equipment delivered to M T Kaill since taking an initial batch of machines at the end of 2004. "We've been impressed with the reliability and the performance of the Volvo product since making the initial switch and so it wasn't a difficult decision to make when it came to this latest purchase," commented Managing Director Steve Thomas. Joining the existing fleet of Volvo minis are ten EC25's, eight EC55B's, a brace of EC15B's and two ECR88 'Plus' reduced swing machines. According to Mr. Thomas this is a fair mix of machine sizes for MT Kaill's client base. "The EC25 is a good all round machine at the lower end of the tonnage scale and caters for the demands of clients looking for either a two tonne, or a three tonne mini whilst with the EC55B's we couldn't see a better five to six tonner on the market," he said. And the new recruits have gone directly to work in the MT Kaill Plant Hire fleet being hired out either with operators serving a 50 mile radius in the North West of England or on a self drive rental basis covering the whole of the country.

As with all Volvo construction equipment, the compact excavator line develops impressive levels of performance and technological advances. This includes a variable flow power control hydraulic system for precise control under all load conditions and safety features such as Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS), Tip Over Protection Structure (TOPS) and Falling Objects protection Structure (FOPS) contribute to outstanding operator safety. Specifically for M T Kaill (Plant Hire) Ltd the ECR88 Plus is also proving to be a highly popular size of excavator especially for some of the more specialised hires including rail work and rail maintenance. The Volvo ECR88 PLUS offers high manoeuvrability in confined spaces, particularly near walls and nearby traffic in urban jobsites. The machine is powered by a Volvo 3.4 litre low emission engine producing 57 net hp coupled to a closed centre load sensing hydraulic system for optimum performance of all the machine's functions whilst ensuring maximum fuel efficiency. The machine demonstrates an impressive lifting capacity across carriage of 800kg at maximum reach together with a generous breakout force of 5900daN. Automatic two speed travel is a feature on the ECR88 Plus enabling the machine to shift from high travel speed into low according to the load and terrain.

MT Kaill (Plant Hire) Ltd was founded in 1973 by the current Chairman Tudor Thomas and his wife Mary. The company has continued to flourish under Steve Thomas offering a comprehensive hire fleet including compact excavators, rollers, site dumpers, backhoe loaders and wheeled excavators.
