Construction plant is used in landscaping, agriculture, construction, waste management, forestry and mining applications. Deploying a wheel loader, backhoe, loading shovel or excavator makes your material handling and loading jobs safer, faster, more precise and more profitable.

Safe working at height platforms are necessary for workshop and field-based maintenance repairs. Maintenance tasks are a high priority, for example, servicing. Construction plant machinery maintenance which includes regular inspections of engines, gearboxes and hydraulics, identifying faults and repairing or replacing faulty parts and carrying out routine servicing of plant and equipment.
