Hire Station continue to invest in their fleet

Hire Station has taken delivery of the Husqvarna PG 280 floor grinders to meet growing demand from customers undertaking surface preparation tasks.

“Last year, we refreshed equipment in our fleet for several markets outside our core range, and we saw the PG 280 at the Executive Hire Show,” said Purchasing Manager Paul Smith. “We were impressed by the compact, lightweight nature of the machine, and the folding handlebars for easy transportation. It also has a dust extraction outlet and a quick-change system for fitting different grinding heads.”

The 110V PG 280, the smallest model in Husqvarna’s range, has an integral edge grinding function and a wall protector. It is designed for removing adhesive residue, paint and sparkle coatings on medium-sized concrete areas. Brian Sherlock Managing Director of Hire Station said “as demonstrated at the Executive Hire Show innovation is more than ever important to our customers, whether its additional health, safety or environmental benefits, creating opportunities to cut time on site or developing new methods of working”

The machine has been trialled at Hire Station’s Derby branch since December. “Customers have found it easy to use and there have been no issues with it at all,” Branch Manager Alex Titchmarsh told EHN. “It’s floating head follows contours better, and changing the grinding heads takes two minutes, which is appreciated by users on site and by our workshop staff. It is very versatile and designed for low power consumption.”

Paul Smith is pictured, right, taking delivery of the new PG 280s from Husqvarna’s Rob Harlow. The machines will be distributed to the following Hire Station’s branches Derby, Loughborough, Southampton and Plymouth, where demand is greatest, and more are expected to be added in the future.

Hire Station is also adding further Husqvarna K760 disc cutters with OilGuard engine protection, to refresh and expand its existing fleet. “Husqvarna has a ‘lean packaging system’ that enables machines to be delivered in one crate, complete with our bespoke decals and fleet numbers, which is more efficient and helps to reduce our carbon footprint,” said Paul Smith.
