CW Plant Hire has taken delivery of a pair of new DAFs and Faymonville low-loader trailers.

The 6x2 tractor units are previous generation DAF XF 530s, and are both fitted with Super Space Cabs. Like the trailers, they were supplied by MV Commercial. This takes the total number of MV Commercial-supplied trucks on the Harpenden-headquartered company’s FORS Gold-accredited 200-strong fleet to 20. A further four vehicles are currently on hire to the company.

CW Plant Hire, which specialises in the supply of plant and event hire equipment, including excavators, telehandlers, access platforms, dumpers, scissor lifts, generators and portable air conditioning units, runs a network of 30 depots across the UK.

One of the DAFs will be based in Basildon, Essex, where it will be used by the company’s events division to service festivals and events throughout the South East. The other will transport plant equipment and machinery for the construction industry throughout the Midlands.

CW Plant Hire transport manager Barnaby Smith, said: “A major benefit of adding these vehicles to our fleet is that we can better manage our own growing transport operations.

“We always enjoy working with MV. It’s an excellent partnership. The speed with which they can source trucks and other specialist equipment to meet our requirements is unrivalled and the aftersales service is exceptional.”

CW Plant Hire was established in 1979, and has grown to become a leading specialist in plant and tool hire. Its divisions now includes Instant Hire, Instant Power and Access Hire.

  • DAF Trucks will be exhibiting at this year’s Road Transport Expo, and will be showing its range of award winning new generation trucks. The event takes place at Stoneleigh NAEC on June 28-30. It’s FREE to attend, and registrations are now open.
