As reported this week by publications such as The Construction Index, telehandler sales during the first quarter of 2018 have risen by 27%.
Our experiences with our Dieci telehanders also agrees with these findings, as we've seen a rise in interest, enquiries and sales since the start of the year.
The study put the rise down to the increased demand from the house building industry, we have a wide variety of Dieci models ideally suited to house-builders. In fact we have 143 different models in the range!!
Below you will see just some of the 2018 telehandler sales. We have a number of models in stock now ready for delivery ASAP.

This week we have received a special framed commendation from Ammann, for the work done by A&Y Equipment on the Ardent deal.
We reported on this deal in more details last year (www.aandygroup.com/ay-news/ardent-choose-ammann-and-ay)
In short we signed a deal to supply over 100 new Ammann rollers, worth upwards of £4 million. This was made up by the following machines:
A similar deal has been agreed again in 2018 and machines are currently being delivered to Ardent depots all across the country, proving Ardent's trust in both Ammann and A&Y.

We currently have a Zeus 33.11, Dieci's most compact stabilised telehandler, making a great 'hands on' impression, working on a national home builders site.
Dieci claim that this machine gives the user the right balance between power and agility. Which from feedback received is definitely the case.
This model remains compact, whilst still being able to lift to just under 11 metres. The dimensions are as follows:
Height - 2310 mm
Length - 5300 mm
Width - 2290 mm
A big benefit of the 33.11 is that the jack legs deploy within the width of the wheels. Thus allowing the operator to still be able to lift to maximum height, even on compact sites, perfect for modern day house building. Another benefit to this is that you will have already driven over the ground the jack legs will be lowered into, allowing the user to check its suitability first.
In terms of operation, the Zeus 33.11 is powered by a Kubota engine, producing 112 HP of power. A hydrostatic transmission, complete with an inching pedal lets the user complete precise actions, such as placing loads with greater control.
As with all of the Dieci telehandlers, the cab is large with simple controls. The ROPS, FOPS, TOPS cab has excellent all around visibility, which has been praised by the users for improving all around site safety.
If you’re looking to work in tight confines and still need excellent lift capacity, the Dieci Zeus 33.11 can do the job for you with its short wheel base giving it a tighter turning radius and ample lifting power.
This short video of the machine working in Canada highlights some of it's key features.
We have finance options such as Op Lease available, as are extended warranty and service contract possibilities. For further information on this or any of our products please contact the office on: 01789 414525 / email@example.com
During the first quarter of 2018 we have seen sales of the Yanmar SV22 increase. This model which sits in between the SV18 and SV26 weighs in at 2260 kg and has an ultra short tail swing, providing easy access to tight spots.
The basic specs of the SV22 are as follows:
As you can see this model is a compact size and very easy to transport between sites on a trailer, whilst still remaining very stable and powerful. There are a number of further benefits that have helped towards more sales of the SV22. Some of these are shown below:

This week we had more Yanmar excavators heading up North of the border to Scotland. This increases the 2018 numbers of machines sold into the country, making it the best start to a year we've had in Scotland.
The latest load show above consisted of; 1 tonne SV08's, the cabbed SV18 with expanding tracks and the ever popular and reliable SV26.
A&Y's Area Manager, Peter Barfield commented "it's a really positive start to the year for Yanmar in Scotland, with a good range of machines now working in hire fleets and with dealers. We have had some great enquires for Ammann compaction and also our Dieci telehandlers so expect more machines leaving us for Scotalnd soon"
Below you can see machines delivered in January set in a very snowy scene. For more information on our sales, parts and servicing please Contact Us today.
A big thank you to everybody who made 2018's Executive Hire Show a successful one for A&Y Equipment.
It's always great to see new and existing customers and show off the products we believe are the perfect fit for the hire industry.
As always there was plenty of interest in the machines on our stand. The popular Cormidi tracked dumper received high praise, especially for its special undercarriage and stability.
The Yanmar micro SV08 was well liked due to its ability to fit through an 680mm wide gap but also weighing over a tonne still having good capabilities.
We took orders for new Ammann plates and trench rollers during the show and the Dieci telehandler had many people in and out of the seat during the show. From this we have several demonstrations confirmed plus machines sold.
In fact we are extending our special show prices!! So please contact us for more information on these great offers.
Below are a selection of images from the show.
The tracks are blacked, drums painted and windows cleaned - we're all set to welcome you to the Executive Hire Show 2018.

This week we have sold and delivered an Ammann ASC50 single drum roller.
This roller has an operating weight of 4.5 tonnes, with a drum width of 1400 mm. Despite it's compactness a Centrifugal force of 100 kN make it well suited to jobs such as; pipeline construction, road subbabse's, structural backfilling and housing developments.
Ammann define the ASC 50 Soil Compactor as a heavier “small” compactor, with more force delivered from a machine that still is able to fit into tight spaces.
The ASC 50 HD version features greater gradeability and additional compaction selections that include a combination of low frequency with high amplitude and compaction force.
• Automatically adjusts if a drive component slips
• Only stops when both drive wheels and the drum are without traction, resulting in maximum grade-ability on any type of ground
• Includes “twin-lock” traction control
• Offers no-axle concept for exceptional footing
Optimum Compaction Force
• Industry-leading compaction outputs
• Smooth or padfoot drum
• Low centre of gravity
Productivity in Small Spaces
• Features articulation-oscillation joint
• Works flush against objects such as curbs
• Offers exceptional visibility for operator
• Operator platform is mounted on vibration-free rubber mounts for highest comfort
• Drives energy into material and away from operator
• Has ROPS Operator platform
In the second part of our annual review we take a look at the highlights between July - December.
As always if you have any further questions about any of our products or aftersales please contact us on 01789 414525 / firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great New Year and see you in 2018!
Despite being one of our most popular models, the Yanmar SV26 went through some improvements.
The main change is seen in the tracks. As well as having a new design and more grip, they have increased in width from 250mm to 300mm. As well as improving manoeuvrability, these new tracks will also last longer. With 15% less ground pressure, wear will reduce as well as the potential for damages to the ground. The blade has also been widened to accommodate the wider tracks, as well as full ram guard protection on the bucket, dipper and arm cylinders.
Ammann released a new line of technologically advanced APF, forward travel plate compactors. These plates provide industry leading compaction output, manoeuvrability, travel speed and climbing ability. They have also had much work done to reduce unwanted vibration to operators.
These plates fit a broad range of applications, such as gardening, landscaping and road works.
We sold the first of our Pegasus roto telehandlers in September. This model the 40.25 went straight to a home building site complete with a winch and is fully remote controlled. This machine also features a powerful FPT 141 hp Turbocharged Diesel engine. Its 2-speed hydrostatic, 25 mph road speed gets it around to various locations quickly. The ATP (Anti Tipping Protection) safety feature along with stabilisers all around ensures both operator comfort and safety. The Pegasus 40.25 features a lifting capacity of 4000 kg with a 20.5 metre horizontal reach, making it ideal for most construction and building applications.
We supplied FM Conway another batch of Yanmar excavators throughout October. This most recent deal was made up of 6 tonne ViO57’s, 5 tonne ViO50’s, 2.5 tonne SV26’s and 1.5 tonne SV16’s. This is in addition to a similar set of machinery supplied in late 2016, on that occasion 8 tonne ViO80’s were also included.
A&Y’s Area Sales Manager, Peter Ayres said “it’s fantastic to be associated with innovative and ever growing companies like FM Conway. This latest order shows their loyalty to both the Yanmar and A&Y brands.”
The ARX26, which has an operating weight of 2.5 tonne, a drum width of 1200 mm and offers a centrifugal compaction force of 47KN had a successful year with many units being sold. In November more of these rollers left us to both end users and dealers. Users have commented on the great drum visibility as well as the electric drive lever ideal for work on asphalt jobs.
We now have stock of the upgraded Yanmar ViO33 and ViO38. These models are now -6 and join other models in being improved. These changes not only increase performance and productivity but also make the operating experience a much more comfortable one. Just a few of these improvements include: Higher lifting capacities, more stable undercarriage, new engine ECU, improved powerline, air suspension seat, more leg room, re-designed one piece door and much better maintenance access.
As 2017 draws to a close we take a look back on some of the main highlights.
It has been a successful time for A&Y these past 12 months, with improvements on current models, increases in our product portfolio and sales to all manner of end customers.
We saw the first Yanmar ViO12's arrive with us before their launch at the Executive Hire Show. These zero tail swing excavators have an operating weight of 1235 kg and an expandable working width ranging between 830 - 1000 mm. A main feature of these excavators is the use of servo controls and has led to customers telling us they treat the machine more like a 1.5 tonne machine rather than a micro.
The first time we showed the lightweight ATR30 rammer was in February. This compactor weighs just 29kg and is incredibly mobile and manoeuvrable by one man. Powered by a Honda GX35 engine it has become a popular tool for firms carrying out work on fibre optic cabling jobs and patchwork.
We took delivery of the first batch of ASC70 single drum rollers with the very latest in engine technology, which meets US Tier 4 final and EU Stage IIIB emissions standards. All this without the need for AdBlue. The ASC70 is a 7.2 tonne roller powered by a Tier 4f Deutz engine. During a visit from a Deutz engine expert he commented on what a great fit this engine was to the machine. He was impressed with it's output and the way it complemented the needs of the roller "you wont have an issues with these machines" he added.
We signed a new deal with Ardent Hire Solutions, one of the largest providers of self-drive plant in the UK, to supply over 100 new Ammann rollers in a deal worth upwards of £4 million.
These machines will update and compliment an existing fleet of Ammann rollers located throughout Ardent’s 14 national depots. This particular deal is made up with a range of compaction machines, including trench rollers, light tandem rollers and single drum self-propelled rollers.
In time for the Plantworx show we took delivery of a Cormidi CMF tracked carrier. These machines stand for Cormidi Multi Function, it is effectively one machine, with over 100 different configurations through the use of changeable attachments. Examples of regularly used attachments on these machines include: 3 side tip, pallet carrier, concrete mixer, utility grapple and sweeper. During the show we had a lot of interest in this model and we think during 2018 more and more will be sold.
We brought you the exciting news that we had upgraded our product portfolio by becoming the importer for Dieci Construction machines. These products, predominantly telescopic and “roto” telehandlers, but also including truck mixers and dumpers, have complemented our existing ranges.
Export Manager for Dieci, Patrizia Gambarelli commented on the deal “A&Y are the ideal fit to push our construction products in the UK. They are a large, professional company with many years’ experience of the market. Having visited the premises and met the staff we are sure this is going to be a very productive partnership.”
