Graham Hawkins, managing director, Un-operated division, South said, “We are currently investing heavily in growing our telehandler rental fleet with leading manufacturers including Manitou. This order forms part of a bigger investment to increase our diverse telehandler fleet so we can offer customers a wide range of high-reaching versatile machines and a range of rotating handlers.
