What have Hiremech been up to this month?

Posted by

Hello all,

We realise that we haven’t updated you in a while so here’s a short update for you to see some of the things we have been up to this month.

  1. The photo below shows a forklift truck and driver job for Central London where we had to unload windows.


The forklift used was a Caterpillar GP30N 2004 model. This is an LPG Counterbalance forklift. Specifications include: 3000kg capacity, 5070mm lift height, triple FFL mast and side shift.

It can be used both indoors and outdoors because of the fact that gas is environmentally friendly in comparison to diesel. Unlike electric forklifts, they do not require excessive charging between shifts, however they are as clean and quiet as the electric forklifts.

They are dependable, cheap, easy to use and to maintain, which translates to greater productivity and profitability.

This was the perfect choice for unloading the windows in the photo above as they can carry out just about any task.
