The telehandler order includes machines ranging in sizes from 7m to 17m.
Mark Hogg, product performance director at Hewden, said: “Younger equipment is more technologically advanced and reliable, which ultimately equals more uptime for our customers and fewer breakdowns on site.
“We have seen the utilisation of our telehandlers remain consistent throughout the year, so now was the perfect time to invest.”
The purchase of an 80 tonne and 120 tonne crane has helped to extend the lifting capacity of Hewden’s fleet, which was previously limited to 100 tonne.
In addition, when loaded with full ballast, the 120 tonne crane can be used as a 140 tonne unit, expanding capacity further.
The two cranes have been delivered and have already been out on hire. Full delivery of the telehandlers is due for completion later this month.
