B&T Plant Hire Expands Fleet with 65 New Cat Machines

Friday, June 10 th, 2016

B&T Plant Hire has purchased 65 new Cat® machines from Finning UK & Ireland. The plant hire company services the south east of England and has expanded its fleet with a range of excavators and wheel loaders, all equipped with service contracts and Finsight monitoring.

Finning has supplied 11 Cat 303.5E2s, 10 Cat 320ELs, 10 Cat 305E2s, 16 Cat 312Es, 12 Cat 308E2s, one Cat 926M Wheel Loader and 5 x Cat 323EL with Grade Control.

B&T Plant Hire is continually investing in its fleet and service delivery, with over 1500 machines based at its Morden and Kent depots. The Cat 323EL also includes Cat Grade Control, which provides an accurate and more efficient digging and grading solution, reducing fuel consumption and ensuring maximum productivity on site.

Tom O’Brien, Managing Director at B&T Plant Hire says: “We’ve worked with Finning UK for many years now, and have built a strong relationship with the team and see them as a true partner. After recently purchasing the 60 new machines, we decided to go with the full service contracts and warranty, as we know that the team will deal with any issues quickly, and efficiently.

“The plant hire sector is changing, it’s crucial to start investing more in technology on site; which is why we have invested in the Finsight monitoring service. We are able to access all data from our machines to track all manner of operations, productivity, and downtime. In addition, the Cat Grade Control on our Cat 323EL excavator will allow us to manage the digging and grading process far better, all from the monitor inside the cab.

“B&T Plant Hire is very much looking forward to introducing more technology to its fleet, and continuing our work alongside the Finning team.”
