Hi All


I know you are all very busy at the moment but would be really grateful if you would help me out. Ive been asked to do a presentation and i need some really rough info to make a discussion point.


So if you could fill out my poll that would be great.

Hello Kevin


We've had Denka DL28 for about 8 years


It was used about 5/6 times a year


Couple of years ago we realised that due to its design it wasn't being utilised as often as it could have been.


As such, we have now gone down the route of hiring in more suitable machines when required.

Had one for a few years

But to b honest it just sat around rotting away most of the time. It was a Simons on a 7,5 ton flat bed Iveco

It got nicked a few years back and I never bothered to replace it
