Northeast plant hire company rates fuel efficiency of the Hyundai range

Northeast plant hire company rates safety cameras and fuel efficiency of Hyundai range.

Comprehensive safety systems and sophisticated telematics propelled Hyundai to the top of DA Johnstone Plant Hire’s shopping list.  The Morpeth-based family business now has a fleet that includes a Hyundai HX130A LCR, an HX140AL, three HX210AL excavators and its latest model, an HX300AL, a 30-tonne excavator.

“The main selling point for us is the safety element. This really is a huge priority for us, particularly as we work with Highways England, who insist upon the highest levels of safety on site,” explains owner David Johnstone.

The advanced around view monitoring (AAVM) camera system gives a 360o overview of the immediate working environment, while Intelligent moving object detection (IMOD) technology senses and warns the operator when people or objects come within 5m of the machine.

“The camera system is a game changer,” says Johnstone. “When our machines are out on busy sites, the operators feel so much more confident, because they know what is happening around them and can continue with their task without worrying about people or objects in their way.”

Johnstone also values the telematic system available on the Hyundai A series machines, as this enables the company to get the optimium performance from its machines, which work for highways, deep drainage, landscaping, earthworks and wind farm projects across the North East and Scotland.

“We’ve got machines operating all over the country and so the data we can access remotely is vital in ensuring that our fleet is working efficiently and profitably,” he says. “The A Series machines are also very good on fuel economy, so we’re definitely getting value for money from our Hyundais.”
