Attachment portfolio expanded with £1 million investment in more than 180 new hydraulic breakers
RENTAL solution providers Hewden are investing around £1 million in a range of new Miller attachments. The deal, which was finalized at this week’s Plantworx show, will see more than 180 new breakers added to Hewden’s attachment portfolio for use with their range of excavators (up to 22 tonnes) and telehandlers (5m to 17m) from 1 July 2015.
Hewden are also introducing an innovative new hanger system, allowing customers to interchange attachments even if they operate a mixture of JCB and Caterpillar machines.
To ensure the highest level of on-site safety, Hewden say their engineers will pre-fit all attachments using the safest quick-hitches on the market. The machine will then be transported and unloaded on site, ready to go to work.
‘We have worked closely with the Miller team to provide Hewden customers with not only the safest breakers on the market, but a range that adds real value to the on-site solution they provide,’ said Adrian Murphy, chief executive officer of Hewden.
‘Combine that with the truly unique hangers, designed exclusively for Hewden, which allow the mounting of Miller breakers to both our Cat and JCB machines and we have a very exciting proposition,’ he added.
Hewden say the breakers are also the first on the market to include both an automated lubrication system across the entire range and a tracker fitted to each machine to locate it if misplaced on site, or stolen.
‘Innovation is at the heart of what we do and an integral part of how we add value to the customer experience. Both the automated lubrication system and the trackers are designed to minimize downtime and reduce cost, meaning our customers can get on with what they do best,’ concluded Mr Murphy.
