Eagle Plant apprentice is flying high tonight

You may know Tiegan our 17-year-old business and administration apprentice, she has been shortlisted and we'll all be rooting for her tonight. Councillor Frank McAveety, the Leader of Glasgow City Council said, “The Glasgow Guarantee has provided thousands of Glaswegians with jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities over the past seven years, and it is right that we recognise the achievements of everyone involved at this week’s awards ceremony.

Good luck Tiegan!

Terex 3 ton side swivel dumper

These dumpers have the same features as a standard 3 tonne dumper yet have the added benefit of a power swivel function which makes them ideal on jobs where turning space is limited.  For example, these dumpers would be ideal on highway jobs where they would not disrupt traffic as the load can be directed through 180 degrees.

Pressure washer bowser

The 1000L bowser and petrol pressure washers are great for most site cleaning applications including site equipment and masonry.The unit is fitted with a Honda petrol pull start engine and interpump giving a working pressure of 2500 psi, a detergent container and 30ft of hose and lance are also included.

Numatic Drainage and Gutter Clearance Vacuum.

This is the latest High Ride Position Float which ensures excellent visibility at all times for the operator. Powered by a 24h.p. Honda engine and comes with Lights and retardant spray as standard. Each rotor has 4 blades.


The vacuum benefits from two “Twinflo” bypass motors giving ample power to “munch” through most obstructions and waste deposits found in blocked drains and gutters. The vacuum has a holding capacity of 30 litres, something easily emptied using the fitted dump hose.


That’s not all, the vacuum hose can be linked to the blower attachment, fitted to the head assembly and used as a high output blower. A must for blocked drains or defrosting gutters during the winter time!
