Cumbrian based Stevens Equipment Rental has announced the expansion of its fleet with the acquisition of three Cat® K-Series wheel loaders from Finning, the exclusive dealer of Cat equipment in the UK and Ireland. The new machines will help meet the demanding requirements of the short and long term plant hire market.

The company previously known as Peter Stevens Dumptruck Hire Ltd has developed an impressive record over the last forty years in the construction rental industry. Today, they still maintain the same excellent reputation for great service and product knowledge. They usually operate machines aged three years (ten thousand hours) or less and have expertise in supplying equipment that offers high levels of productivity in any application. The new machines, a Cat 966K, Cat 972K and Cat 980K wheel loaders will offer Stevens Equipment Rental’s customers equipment that is optimised for maximum fuel efficiency, uptime and increased power density.

Russell McLean, Rental Manager at Stevens Equipment Rental, said: “Caterpillar wheel loading sovels are well respected in all market sectors, and as a national / international rental company our customers have a package that includes the reliability of the Caterpillar machines. The nationwide support from Finning and our own service team ensures we offer our “service you can trust” with or without a long term commitment and just one number to call”.

Machinery in the plant hire market is tested to its limits, so the Cat K-Series wheel loaders offer great versatility and reliability for any application, and unrivalled economical performance. Each machine meets Stage IIIB emissions standards, which will help its customers save money in operating costs over time.

Gary Huxley, Customer Account Manager at Finning, said: “Not only is Stevens Equipment Rental a well known name in the British plant market, but they have a growing international presence. It’s extremely pleasing to see a growing business like theirs choose the combined expertise of Finning and the quality of Cat equipment to support the company’s growth.”
