About WM Plant Hire

Dedicated only to long reach solutions, WM Plant Hire operates one of the largest fleet of long reach excavators in the UK suited to multiple applications. We also own the largest long reach in the UK - CAT390F custom built 30m.

Our experience and ability is demonstrated through our involvement with a wide range of industry sectors and technical input to many high profile projects.

From 7 to 30 metres reach, our plant ranges from 7 to 115 tonnes for light to heavy duty demands of land and water based operations.

Specialist attachments, floating plant and fully amphibious excavators, together with experienced operators allow us to fulfil almost every specialist plant requirement.

We are happy to consult with our customers to ensure that we specify the right machine, using our engineering expertise to assist in the safe and effective delivery of the work operations.

Our typical long reach applications:

Our range of smaller and heavy duty excavators suits both inland and coastal applications. GPS underwater dig profile technology with floating plant can increase the scope of hire applications to the benefit of our customers.

Flood Defences / Watercourse Maintenance
WM Plant Hire have been involved in a range of flood protection and alleviation schemes nationally including maintenance dredging on the River Parrett and the largest flood alleviation scheme in the UK, in Leeds.

Marine Construction
Our heavy duty long reach excavators with a variety of attachments can undertake even the most challenging projects, and our detailed knowledge and experienced operators often prove vital in this field.

Coastal Defences
WM Plant Hire’s portfolio includes a range of rock armour placement work and high profile projects like Cowes Breakwater.

Ports & Harbours
Our work in this area has been national and international (as far as the Isle of Scilly, Jersey and Ireland) e.g. Greenport Hull, Liverpool2, St Mary’s Harbour, Nigg Harbour Scotland.

Marine Cables and Outfalls
WM Plant Hire have worked on high profile projects in this area e.g. IFA2, Thames Tideway Beckton Outfall and Bridlington Sea Outfall.

Slope Stabilisation
All our long reach excavators are correctly counter-balanced to ensure stability on embankments. The larger machines are capable of handling soil nailing rigs and masts in excess of 2 tonnes.

Quarrying / Lagoon Clearance
Our excavators are suited to digging sand, gravel and quarry materials in situations where safe working remote from rock faces is necessary or deep excavation, in and around water is required. Hire on hourly rate or on price work.

Emergency Response
Our ability to respond swiftly and commitment to work all times of day has lead us to involvement in a range of emergency response work including debris clearance after flooding, and work to reinstate rail lines.

Specialist Excavations
Our long reach excavators are ideally suited to deep excavations including cofferdams, access shafts, cut and cover tunnelling, deep drainage trenches and installation/removal of underground storage tanks. In remediation works safe working distance afforded by long reach is key.

Our Excavator Fleet
  • Designed and upgraded for optimum long reach performance
  • Modern safe working load systems and GPS technology
  • Safety paramount with machines maintained to a high specification with emergency kits fitted as standard and regularly updated as per EA safety specifications
  • All machines are available with piping for a variety of hydraulic attachments.
  • Self-drive options available on some machines although we recommend our own operators who often exceed production rates due to their comprehensive experience.
