New PM fleet for Harsco
By Laura Hatton26 November 2013
Harsco Infrastructure in the UK has a new fleet of delivery vehicles fitted with custom-designed PM 28.5 hydraulic loader cranes.
In total, 19 new DAF CF commercial vehicles have been added to Harsco’s fleet. With the Italian manufacturer's cranes they will be used to move access equipment and formwork and for industrial maintenance tasks.
John McKeever, Harsco transport manager, said, “We worked closely with the team at PM to customise these cranes to suit our particular needs. They are the first PM cranes of their kind in the UK that have been specially designed to work via remote control, which will make our loading and unloading operations both faster and more efficient.
“The new vehicles give us a great deal of flexibility to respond to our customers’ requirements as quickly as possible. They are operating out of our nine UK depots. Nine of them are 26 tonne rigid chassis vehicles and the remainder are tractor and trailer units.”
The vehicles join 40 new Caterpillar fork lift trucks and 140 cars and vans in Harsco’s fleet.
