Caterpillar's new D6T track type loader offers superior manoeuverability through the use of separate hydraulic pumps supplying power to steering and implements.

UK plant hire firm One Call Hire has purchased 242 new Cat machines from Finning in a deal worth £13 million.

The London-based firm has added 80 Cat 312Es, 72 Cat 308E2s, 60 Cat 305Es, 20 Cat 320EL HSRs and six Cat D6T LGPs dozers to its fleet following an increase in customer demand.

John Fitzpatrick, director at One Call Hire, said: "With the construction industry growing again, we're able to continue our investment in our plant hire fleet to meet the increased demand for hydraulic excavators in particular.

"The new Cat machines we have ordered all have emissions-friendly engines and enhanced hydraulic systems that improve cycle times, which meet our requirements of offering our customers ways to save on fuel costs and maximise efficiency.

One Call has a poliocy of maintaining a young fleet, with an average age of 9 months. It said the Cat machines "will offer us a guaranteed residual value after twenty-four months."

The new deal follows on from One Call Hire's purchase of 154 Cat machines from Finning in 2013.
