MTS Plant adds latest Yanmar models to growing hire fleet



MTS Plant, the equipment sales and rental specialist, has added the latest models from Yanmar’s 2019 compact portfolio to its growing hire fleet. Available through its depots in West Yorkshire, Lancashire, Co. Durham and Scotland, operators now have immediate access to Yanmar’s micro, mini and midi excavator range (from micro to 8.0 tonnes), alongside a number of tracked dumper carriers.

With more than 30 years’ experience in the sales and rental marketplace, MTS Plant joined the Yanmar Compact Equipment Europe (CEE) dealer network in 2019 and has since experienced continued success. A wealth of product knowledge and exceptional service quality ensures clients find the right solution for their projects, and with nationwide service and support delivered via their team of field engineers they provide the back-up to match.

Integrating Yanmar’s class-leading portfolio into its growing hire fleet will not only further expand the MTS rental offer, but also promises to prove highly popular with customers, as Sarah Black, Managing Director at MTS Plant, explains;

“At MTS Plant we work with a variety of businesses – from national contractors and councils to sole traders. Our rental machines are put to work in a host of demanding environments, making durability, reliability and rental-tough design essential for job site success.

“The Yanmar range is the perfect addition to our rental division. The design of the machines lends itself to the hire industry, with numerous features helping to limit damage perfectly paired with stylish design and class-leading performance.

“Already the range has been well-received and a number of models including the C08 tracked carrier and both the ViO50 and ViO80 zero tail swing excavators have proved particularly popular within our customer base. Each model’s compact dimensions and suitability for operation in tight spaces ensure high productivity and lower fuel consumption compared to the competition.”

David Cockayne, UK & Ireland Sales Manager at Yanmar CEE, added: “Since reaffirming our commitment to the UK marketplace and announcing an all-new network of dealers in July 2018, we’ve seen demand for Yanmar equipment increase significantly. Flexible, dependable and highly efficient, it continues to prove popular with site professionals worldwide.

“We’re delighted that MTS Plant has chosen to integrate our latest range into its hire fleet. With contractors looking for machines flexible to work in industries including groundworks, landscaping, utilities, highways, house building and construction, we’re confident that it will add a new dimension to its growing rental offer.
