About


For over 50 years we have strived to provide the latest Low Ground Pressure machinery to specialist sectors throughout the UK.

Here at AJK Plant Hire Ltd we provide specialist low ground pressure machines.

For over 30 years we have been running the Hydrema low ground pressure articulated dump trucks as a mainstay of our hire fleet. We first realised the benefits of these compact trucks when working on our own construction contracts across the UK. Our 6 wheel 20 tonne Hydrema trucks are an ideal alternative to standard 25 tonne ADTs when ground conditions are poor. The Hydrema trucks offer significant fuel saving advantages in comparison to standard trucks too. We can also offer rear tip, swivel skip and “High Mobility” 12 tonne truck options.

Our wide tracked excavators are perfect for construction work in sensitive environments including moorlands, nature reserves and near water bodies. We can offer tilt rotate and power tilt units to a range of machine sizes.

The Low Ground Pressure configuration of our tracked machines and wide floatation tyres fitted to our dump trucks ensures minimal ground disturbance – essential when working in sensitive environments and when minimal damage to surrounding areas is important.

LGP machines also have the ability to continue to work in wet and soft ground conditions, which helps to maximise productivity even in inclement weather.
As both a Plant Hire and Contracting company we understand the level of service and quality of machines required to deliver exceptional results every time.
We are proud to have established an excellent reputation as providers of plant to a wide range of sectors within the construction industry.

We are proud to be SafeContractor approved, CHAS accredited and are holders of the FORS Bronze award for our Transport operations.
