The South Downs Show and Hampshire Wood Fair

We were proud to be the main event sponsor of the Southdown’s show and wood fair at the Queen Elizabeth country park on the A3M near Petersfield this year. On an over-cast set-up day we were all praying for some sunshine on the show days. Fortunately we were not disappointed and a terrific couple of August days followed! Beaver Tool Hire exhibited a wide selection of machinery and equipment at the show including the new Nifty 150T cherry picker and the new Genie GS-1932 Scissor lift (which was fast sinking in the soft ground as we set-up!). You can view more pictures from our time at the show by visiting our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BeaverToolHire. Also, get a great view of the show from the top of a Nifty 150T cherry picker located at the Beaver Tool Hire stand.

Percussion Drill Hire

Lightweight general purpose percussion drill hire for general use including holes in brickwork, blockwork, masonry, wood, metal and plastic. Hire this product from our tool hire branches in Chichester, Fareham, Waterlooville, Portsmouth and Petersfield. Click the link above to find out further information. A percussion drill is very similar to a rotary hammer drill. The main difference between the two is that the hammering action cannot be used without the rotational function on a percussion drill. This is because the hammering action is initiated by the rotation of the chuck. Percussion drills are suited to general DIY, although they are somewhat slower than rotary drills. They are also suitable for use on semi-hard materials, such as limestone or light concrete. While some high end models can be used on hard materials, such as concrete and masonry, this causes very loud noise and strong vibrations: General Purpose/Percussion Drill 110v/240v Power input: 750W Maximum hole diameters: – Masonry/concrete: 20mm – Steel: 13mm – Wood: 40mm Weight: 3kg
