Plant hire firm builds fleet quality with Andover01 December 2017

Lincolnshire-based aggregates and plant hire firm Bullimores has taken delivery of a new 32-tonne Scania P360 mounted with an Andover Trailers plant body, citing Andover’s build quality as reasons for its repeat business over more than 15 years.

The Scania joins a fleet that includes eight plant bodies which are used as part of the company’s self-drive plant rental business. “These vehicles are vital for the plant rental side of our business and we need to be confident that they won’t let us down – happily, the Andover bodywork never does,” confirms Chris Bullimore, managing director.

The bespoke body features a double crank beavertail connected to a pair of 2.5m-long hydraulic power toe ramps, plus an electric winch mounted to the headboard to aid loading and unloading.

The build includes six pairs of lashing points along the deck for maximum load security and flexibility, as well as steady legs and working lights for safety.

Operating from Bullimores’ plant rental sites in St Neots and Northampton, the vehicle is expected to clock up 52,000km a year and remain in operation for six years.
