This week saw us host our eagerly awaited Bobcat wheel saw demo day at our head office in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. The event was part of Bobcat’s new “Tough Jobs” initiative, which aims to promote the Bobcat Loader as more than just a bucket carrier.
The first event was held at earlier this year in Rome and showcased the Bobcat Laser Grader, which was used in the construction of a new sports field at Vatican City. In an initial attempt to match the prestige of this event we had considered asking her Majesty the Queen if she needed any cable installing at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle. However, when we found out she was busy on 27th May, we went with plan B and dug up the back yard of our Wakefield depot instead.
None the less the event was a great success. Bobcat rolled out the big guns, and flew in their official operator and test driver Robby Bosch from Czechoslovakia, who drive our T590 Compact Tracked Loader on the day. The promotion we had done in the weeks prior had definitely paid off as a number new potential customers from utility installation, civil engineering and plant hire Company’s paid our depot a visit to get a look at the wheel saw in action.
With the help of the North Yorkshire based plant hire firm Wrights of Crockey Hill Ltd we were also able to organise a second day of the event at a privately owned airfield just outside York. This secluded venue allowed visitors more freedom to hop in and try out the equipment for themselves in a relaxed atmosphere.
We are now including the attachment in our plant hire fleet. We currently offer a host of related attachments such as road planers, and trenchers for hire from all our depots in Lanarkshire, the North East, Yorkshire and Lancashire. We feel due to the amount of interest in this specialist Bobcat attachment there is a place for it in the hire market.
If you are interested in the Bobcat Wheel Saw and would like to find out more, please feel free to contact your local depot or use the online contact us form and someone will be in touch to answer your questions.

We have been working with MTS Plant for just over 12 months now and have found their service and support second to none. Vanessa, Jenny, Matt and the team are fantastic and will always go the extra mile to meet our requirements. We have regularly used MTS Plant for Dumper and Excavator hire throughout this period and have found their range of machinery very reliable & of excellent quality. I would 100% recommend MTS Plant Hire.
We have used MTS Plant for a number of years and have been constantly impressed by the service provided. We work in a quick-moving industry where our requirements for small machine hire can be at short notice and highly varied.

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.
MTS has arranged for us at times very short notice the most diverse ranges of hire equipment, even nationwide. We first started using MTS a few years ago now an don’t hesitate to call the well mannered and excellently informed staff, We have experienced difficulties when on hire and the response was second to none, from the delivery drivers to the mechanic’s, the professional advice and service we haven’t matched anywhere in my 32 years in construction.
