R W Gale Ltd - Surfacing Contractors

Paving Machine Hire - Bitelli BB 52 - "The Big Blue Shovel"

We offer a paving machine hire service tailored with crew to your individual requirements

After some 20 years of faithful service, we decided a change was due for our trusty Scania 113M Tractor and ARB Low Loader to something more adaptable to our daily requirements. Something a little different, something that would get us noticed - a Scania R124-420 T-Cab fitted the bill perfectly. This was purchased in April 2007 as a 2001 tractor unit from Keltruck in the Midlands.

Then the transformation began.....

The chassis was stretched some 450mm, a twin wheel lift axle was fitted in place of the single lift axle, a drag trailer hitch and a bespoke insulated multi-way tipping body was made on our premises by craftsmen to our exacting requirements.

Numerous modifications were made to the vehicle in the form of additional lighting, horns, camera systems, & equipment storage.

A suitable drag trailer to allow us to transport various items of plant to and from site was also custom built by the talented craftsmen at Turner Commercials in Bruton to our exacting requirements, taking into account the anticipated weight and size of plant we use.

Below are some images of the outfit in it's finished operational state
