Bobcat Laser Grader Hire

Last week saw MTS Group host the latest in a long line of Bobcat Tough Jobs demo’s which have taken place across the EMEA area during 2015. The though Jobs initiative is part of a marketing focus by Bobcat as a company to promote the idea of the Bobcat skidsteer and tracked loader as a multi tool machine, capable of more than just carrying a set of pallet forks or a bucket.

Our customer demo event was to showcase the Bobcat Laser Grader, which is one of the more specialist attachments in the Bobcat range. The laser grader is ideal for use in the landscaping / hardscaping industry where precise levelling or grading work in needed. The grader offers many advantages and cost savings compared to traditional methods, including a vast decrease in the amount of time taken to complete the work, as well as increased accuracy and a reduction in the amount of staff needed on the job.

Local equestrian arena owner Michael Barber was generous enough to allow us to use his facilities at Crossly Farm in the West Yorkshire town of Mirfield (just outside of Dewsbury) for the customer demo event. The event would see the laser grader be use to prepare a disused section of his site ready to be turned into an outside riding arena.

The demo event attracted a steady flow of customers from a range of industries including sports field construction, civil engineering and industrial concrete flooring, all of which were highly impressed by the benefits which the laser grader could offer to them in their daily work.

The work was completed start to finish using Bobcat machinery, with a skidsteer and telehandlerchipping in to distribute the new subbase material prior to the laser graders use to accurately level the area. The attachments were quickly changed after the grading work had been completed and a Bobcat vibrating roller was used to leave the surface perfectly flat and ready for the hose area to be constructed.

At MTS Group we are able to offer the laser grader for sale either as an individual attachment or alongside a Bobcat skidsteer or tracked loader. We are also now offering the laser grader for hireacross Yorkshire, Lancashire, Co. Durham, Lanarkshire and The Lothians, for those who would only require the machine sporadically.

John Cassidy – Travis Perkins

MTS has been a great company to cross hire small plant in for our customers. The great thing about MTS is the friendly staff who are very committed to making sure Travis Perkins is a priority customer and will move things around in their daily transport too fit urgent orders in. Myself and my team now use Mts as our first point of call as we have confidence in how the business works from the staff to the machines themselves.

Andrew Fairnie – Golf Services Manager, The Gleneagles Hotel

Our guests have high expectations when they come to golf at Gleneagles, and the classic aesthetics and high quality finish on the Club Car vehicles have met their needs perfectly.

The GPS system in particular has been very popular – in addition to providing course information, it even allows golfers to email themselves their score card to review at home.

Nick Rushworth – Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

It is a pleasure to work with MTS Golf and Utility Vehicles, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.

We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
