Plant hire Hampshire rental excavator

Construction plant specialists at Selwood supplied a specially-modified Hyundai excavator to groundworks contractor Tanner & Bruce.

Tanner & Bruce, based in South Devon, asked Selwood’s plant sales teams to supply a machine suitable for the task of carrying large boulders.

John Knight of Selwood plant worked closely with Jim Bruce, director of Tanner & Bruce, to arrange modifications to the dipper arm of the new Hyundai R35.

John, who has more than 50 years of experience with Selwood’s plant sales division, said: “It is not unusual in the construction industry for machines to be specially adapted to suit bespoke applications.

“Tanner & Bruce have been established over many years, and know plant and machinery only too well, so we knew we needed to provide an innovative solution to their needs.

“Selwood’s motto is “Proud to Deliver” and we were delighted to live up to that in supplying Jim and his team their tailored excavator.”

Since 2011 Jim has chosen Hyundai for many reasons including smooth and powerful hydraulics, reliability, ease of maintenance and excellent resale values. Tanner & Bruce have previously purchased a number of Hyundai units including the R27,  R35, R55’s and CR80.

Jim said: “I have been so pleased with the Hyundai machines and the service that I get from Selwood that this year we have replaced machines with new additional CR80 and R35 models.”

Selwood has an extensive fleet available for hire or sale from a network of branches across England and Wales. Its range includes excavators, dumpers, telehandlers, rollers, and compressors. For further details visit
