For independent Harrogate based plant and machinery hire specialist, Task It Plant Hire, the last 12 months have been plagued by the devastating impact of plant theft, that has seen no fewer than seven of its initial fleet of 30 mini excavators stolen in just one quarter, between October 2007 and December 2007.

But instead of letting the thieves win and break the business he has worked so hard to build up, Task It Plant Hire director, Austin Tasker, has donned a splash of white livery, taken a heavy dose of Kosran security and invested in a brand new fleet of Cat mini excavators, to fight off the thieves and put them out of action.

The courageous move by Austin has seen him not only replace his entire fleet of excavators for Caterpillar machines, it has also seen him increase his operation to incorporate no fewer than 40 Caterpillar mini excavators, making Task It Plant Hire, Finning’s largest independent mini excavator customer for the last 12 months.

To combat the threat of theft, the new fleet has been armed with a Kosran keypad security system, GPS tracking, ID stamping and even had all of the Cat yellow booms painted white.
