MTS runs one of the largest Bobcat hire fleets in Europe, with more than 220 of them. The latest order is expected to support planned expansion of rental services in Scotland and the Midlands.
The new investment includes Bobcat S100 and S130 skid-steer loaders together with several models from the new 500 platform loader range launched this year, including S550 skid-steer loaders and T590 compact tracked loaders. The company has also purchased Bobcat E08, E16, E26 and E50 mini-excavators for the hire fleet.
MTS managing director Peter Watson said: “We have been running a fleet of Bobcat compact loaders and excavators for hire for more than 30 years now. Over that time, we have built up a great amount of expertise and experience in compact equipment hire and are acknowledged as the largest hirer of Bobcat skid-steer loaders and attachments in the UK, with many of the leading rental companies regularly cross-hiring from us. The Scotland expansion is to provide closer support for the many loaders we hire in this market, especially for dealing with the effects of the winter weather.”
MTS is also the authorised Bobcat dealer for Yorkshire.
