PBF Drainage

Recently, we were contacted by a client who had a couple of jobs which he required equipment for. We were more than happy to help our friends at PBF Drainage and our team was on hand to assist Managing Director, James Stern, in the hiring of our two of our IMS cutters.

An IMS Micro Drive was leased and taken all the way to the Isle of Wight where it assisted with the reopening of laterals, after lining, and also cut intrusion work on 30-100mm length pipes. The IMS Micro Drive was really put through its paces and the job took 6 weeks to complete in total.

The second cutter that PBF hired was our IMS Micro Comfort cutter which was used on a job in Nottingham. On this particular job, PBF was asked to cut out a liner (that had been previously installed by another contractor) as well as cutting into concrete to allow them to carry out further CCTV and rehabilitation. The Micro Comfort was the perfect tool for the job and proved its worth on the various 45 and 90 degree bends.

PBF’s Managing Director, James Stern told us: “Without the cutters, we hired from Ant Hire, we simply would not have been able to complete either of these jobs - both cutters are fantastic pieces of equipment!

"The IMS Micro Drive really does come into its own on 6” diameter and above pipes. The level of service and support we received from the Ant Hire team was second to none – they really know their products!”
