GAP Hire Solutions will be presenting their range of market-leading plant rental equipment at this year’s Hillhead show.

GAP’s representatives (on stand B3) will be on hand to discuss the company’s offerings, with a number of products on display including: a 9-tonne dumper; a Hamm 138 roller; and a Kubota KX080-4a, which is the excavator with the cleanest emissions in the manufacturer’s 8-tonne class. GAP currently hold the largest fleet of Kubota excavators available for hire in Europe. 

The company will also present the 16ft Autosmart Eco Welfare Unit from ‘Green Apple Award’ winning manufacturers AJC EasyCabin. The welfare unit incorporates numerous environmentally friendly features to reduce emissions, maintenance, fuel consumption, generator hours and noise pollution. GAP are exclusive UK distributors of the Autosmart Eco Welfare Unit. 

Other products to be demonstrated will include satellite solutions (eg 4G routers) from Clarus and Trime-branded X Eco lighting towers, renowned for their innovation, compact dimensions and versatility across the quarrying, recycling and construction sectors. GAP will also be showing a selection of equipment from their Survey and Safety, and Lifting Hire and Sales divisions.

We keep up to date with new equipment and advances in technology to ensure that we can satisfy client demands for better efficiency. We’re really excited to showcase our diverse and ever-expanding fleet of products at Hillhead 2018.’
