Time to shine for Morris Site Machinery’s new lighting products

LEADING site equipment manufacturer Morris Site Machinery is set to shine when it debuts two new lighting products alongside its world-class machinery range, on Stand F30 - at the Executive Hire Show 2019.

The SMC TL90 Evolve – the next generation SMC TL90 lighting tower – and the SMC TL60 Solar Trolley, are the latest innovations from the company’s engineering team in response to the hire industry’s needs.

The SMC TL90 Evolve offers all the functionality of the current market leading SMC TL90 but with a new ergonomic design, more compact appearance and three lamp head options.

Richard Denholm, UK Sales Director, said: “We are constantly looking at how we can improve our products to ensure we’re delivering the brightest and best machineS which deliver value for customers.

"We’re excited to be debuting these two additions to our range of lighting towers.”

The SMC TL90 Evolve can be fitted with the standard four LED head, the groundbreaking Halo lamp head or a six LED head making it the brightest mobile lighting tower in the UK.

The six head Evolve+ has a crisp light output of 217,500 lumens - twice as powerful as its competitors - and is super silent at just 60dB(A) from 7m. The standard four head TL90 Evolve has a run time of 185 hours.

Renewable energy will be spotlighted with the launch of the compact SMC TL60 Solar Trolley. Totally solar powered, the energy efficient and easily deployable unit produces zero noise and zero emissions.

Its dusk-till-dawn sensor provides light when needed, saving battery power and removing the necessity for manual switching on and off. The unit is available with different LED oodlight arrangements including dimmable lights, auto-timer and PIR control.

Mecalac to showcase latest range at the Executive Hire Show

Stand J22

MECALAC Construction Equipment UK Ltd, a global leader in compact equipment design and manufacture, will showcase a number of models from its industry-leading product portfolio at the show.

Alongside the all-new 6MDX cabbed site dumper, Mecalac will exhibit its updated MBR-71 pedestrian roller and TV-1200 tandem compaction roller on Stand J22.

Each model has been designed to provide operators with a reliable and robust hire solution.

Paul Macpherson, UK Sales and Marketing Director at Mecalac CEUK, said: “As one of the UK’s most renowned rental exhibitions, we’re looking forward to showcasing our latest products, updates and equipment technologies at the 2019 Executive Hire Show. Being part of the show provides the perfect platform to share exciting plans for the future.”


The perfect blend of stylish design and functionality, the 6MDX sets the standards in site safety. With a six-tonne payload, operating weight of 4,950kg and top speed of 28kph, operators benefit from short-cycle times, outstanding manoeuvrability and best-in-class productivity.

A highly-efficient 3.4-litre, 55kw Perkins 854 IIIB-compliant engine generates 424Nm of torque, while DPF exhaust after-treatment (with passive regeneration) meets international emissions standards. Additional features include next generation Power Brakes (driven by the main hydraulic system), which deliver an improved feel alongside an all-new dashboard design and industry-leading safety credentials.


Specifically designed for the compaction of granular and asphalt materials, the single-drum MBR-71 is perfectly suited to applications including highway repair, footpaths, cycle lanes, playgrounds and landscaping environments. Its proven design provides superb balance, ensuring best-in-class manoeuvrability in tight spaces.

For 2019, the rental-tough roller has been redesigned to incorporate hydrostatic drive, alongside a series of additional engineering updates. Removing the clutch and belt arrangement results in fewer maintenance requirements, while a 35% increase in water tank volume has significantly increased working range. Moving operating controls to the handle will ensure safer and more ergonomically-friendly operation, complementing a new spring-applied hydraulic release handbrake, which activates when pressure is lost to maximise operator safety.


A proven favourite for rental professionals worldwide, the TV1200 is arguably one of the toughest tandem rollers on the market. Alongside a rugged design to withstand rental conditions, the model’s all-new vacuum formed bonnet, revised side arm, water-cooled engine and mass exciter system guarantee outstanding performance to reduce the number of required passes.

Full specification includes a one-metre drum width, operating weight of 2,925kg, static liner load of 12.18kg/cm and VPM of 2,880/3,360.

Two frequencies provide enhanced versatility, while an optional pressure-fed water sprinkler delivers greater flow regulation for improved cleaning capability.

They are experts in capturing dust at its source, both where and when it is created.

The show is a trade-only event open to hire executives throughout the UK and Ireland, while also attracting hire industry visitors from Europe and beyond.

James concluded: “The show will provide us with an excellent opportunity to show the tool hire industry how we can help businesses stay healthy through the use of efficient dust extraction.”

The TROY Means Business Show provided a perfect platform for DART Tool Group to also show their customers that they ‘mean business’! A relatively new brand in the power tool accessories industry, the company is growing in double figures year on year, and the message is simple – they offer a ‘serious alternative to leading brands, at a more affordable price’.

DART has an unrivalled position in the market, providing a portfolio of products under one brand, including the DART accessories range; the highly respected DART Red Ten professional diamond blades; the DART NailMaster brand; and the DART Handmax range of gloves, providing customers with a single-source supplier for all their needs.  DART is a brand born in Germany and holds the ISO 9001 accreditation, priding themselves on providing defect-free products on time and within budget. There is no doubt that DART products can complement and extend a trade counter offering – this can surely only add to incremental sales! 

Anyone at the Troy Show will have also met DART’s special guest - the company mascot ‘Henry the Holesaw’, based on one of the company’s flagship products, the Premium Cobalt Bi-Metal Holesaw. Boasting the largest range in the industry, with sizes from 14 to 210mm and 8% cobalt for extreme resistance and long life, the product is quoted as ‘outlasting other leading brands by up to 3 times’.


All DART’s products are available online via their recently re-launched website which offers customers personalised login, fast and simple ordering and full visibility of account history. See www.darttoolgroup.com for more details.

Freeze Master at Executive Hire Show

Late in 2007 Freeze Master started development of the 420D model, the first to be released in their new range of electric pipe freezers. The 420D was launched at the Executive Hire Show at the Ricoh Arena in February 2008.  The new 420D chassis design, incorporating a carry case with lid closed slots, proved so popular that in 2010 the 690E model and revised 280D models were launched; followed by the low-cost ezefreeze model in 2012.

In these last 9 years Freeze Master has not had a single machine from the new range of models returned with unexplained gas loss. Freeze Master electric pipe-freezing machines do not need gas top-ups, re-gassing or regular service checks.

A Freeze Master electric pipe-freezing machine is powerful, fast, efficient, and reliable. Choose Freeze Master.

Morris Site Machinery throws light on innovation for hire industry

Morris Site Machinery will spotlight the latest innovations in power, lighting and welding at the 2017 Executive Hire Show to help hirers grow their business and harness the full potential of their machines.

The leading light-and-power supplier is bringing more solutions and technology-focused products and will unveil its next generation lighting tower range, including the TL90 Ultimate at the event. This new addition has up-to-the minute engine technology from Perkins and Kubota offering longer run times and is fitted with a Deep Sea control panel with telemetry options to give operators advanced monitoring, more traceability and security. The four 300W LED lights provide fuel efficient and crisp, clear, instant light. 

The show will also launch the company’s limited edition range of Cobra inverter welders. The ArcGen Cobra 500i has real bite; a multi-process inverter welder that is a lightweight but powerful welding power source. The Cobra processes include MMA, TIG, Arc Gouging and MIG with the addition of compatible add-on units. 500amps of DC welding power makes it ideal for heavy fabrication, ship yard, oil and gas, quarry and manufacturing industries.

In the dedicated Innovation Zone the chance to trial the Makinex Hose 2 Go from the Morris Select Range is expected to be a popular draw. A special water challenge will offer a fun experience for visitors and the chance to win prizes. The Makinex Hose 2 Go is ideal as a dust suppression tool and portable water supply. It provides a constant and accurate flow of water to suppress dust when cutting, core drilling and grinding concrete. The innovative equipment enables water to flow without a pump, battery or electronics. Lightweight and portable, its 13.8 litre capacity provides up to 30 minutes of constant flowing water, with no need to manually pump to get the required water pressure.  

Morris Site Machinery’s latest range of Inmesol Rental generators will be on show for the first time. Robust, compact and technically innovative, these 24-hour run generators build on the breadth of offer now available from the company and will offer greater choice to the UK hire industry. They feature a Deep Sea control panel with telemetry options available to allow users to remotely control the machines and review their fuel management. The protective paint coating provides high resistance to ultraviolet radiation and prevents rust and corrosion. A user-friendly ‘plug and go’ socket panel includes all the common size sockets for 400/230v and all Inmesol generators come with Stage IIIA compliant engines which can be synchronised with an intelligent control module allowing full load-sharing for up to 32 gensets.

Richard Denholm, Sales Director at Morris Site Machinery, said: “This show is a great opportunity for us to engage with customers and spotlight innovative and efficient products to help them grow their business. We have extended our range of innovative products and price points, while maintaining the great quality and service we are renowned for, to meet the industry needs.

“Our Customer Service Showcase Team will be on hand to promote our new range and to talk about service packages. Our client relationships are important to us and we look forward to meeting our valued, existing customers and gaining new ones.”

The stand will also feature its market-leading Denyo Eventa 20Kva and, for the first time, the new SMC 3kva Generator and SMC 200 amp petrol welder.
