  • Reversing Camera

And to save you valuable time and resources, all our drivers are fully trained and CPCS certificated for loading and unloading vehicles on site.

IT’S ALL PART OF OUR TOTAL PACKAGE!

A Complete Commitment to you

Plant Hire UK commits to reducing our carbon emissions, utilising
JCB's cleanest ever Engine in our Telehandler fleet

MANAGING ENERGY.
Our efforts to manage energy use in the UK are achieving excellent results – we’ve reduced energy consumption since 2013, and associated carbon emissions have fallen by 23% in the same period.

This approach to energy management is certainly paying off. We’ve been Carbon Trust Standard certified since 2011, recognising continued improvements to energy efficiency over time.

MAKING MACHINES MORE EFFICIENT.
Since 2010, we’ve delivered fuel efficiency innovations across our range, the overall effect has been striking. Between 2010 and 2019, we’ve helped save approximately 2.5 billion litres of diesel fuel (enough to fill 1000 Olympic size swimming pools), and reduced our machines’ CO2 emissions by 43%.

OUR CLEANEST ENGINE YET.
Whether it’s our own JCB Dieselmax engine or 3rd party supplier, our brand new Stage V engine seamlessly integrates into the latest generation of machines. We’ve designed all engines above 19kW with AutoStop, a fuel saving feature that shuts down the machine during inactive use, eliminating unwanted idle time and thus saving fuel.

As legislation drives all machines above 19kW towards fitting a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), we’ve designed our solution to provide a regeneration process without any performance interruption and, if required, a manual regeneration can be
scheduled. All designed to maximise uptime.

EVOLVING ENGINES.
Since 1999, our engines have evolved from Stage I emissions compliance through to our brand new Stage V engines, with great results. We now produce 98% less particulate matter (PM) and 97% less nitrogen oxides (NOx) than one produced in 1999, which is a huge step forward towards near zero emissions.

ROAD TO ZERO EMISSIONS.
There is a new zero emissions sector emerging and it’s emerging very quickly. It’s for this reason we have put ourselves at the forefront of alternative power technologies and developed the first ever electric JCB mini excavator.

With urbanisation, machines are operating more closely to people as well as working underground, indoors, and noise and emission restrictive environments.
