Nixon Hire are pleased to announce that we have introduced IN HOUSE Dynamic Brake Testing across our Depot Network. This makes us one of the few rental companies in the marketplace to have this facility as part of our pre hire checks.

Using the Turnkey SIMRET 4000, designed by the Research Division of the UK Health and Safety Executive, we can now carry out brake testing on our rubber wheeled plant such a dumpers and telehandlers prior to every hire. 

This important test ensures that our machines are functioning safely when on hire to our customers as well as complying with the  Highways Agency document “The delivery hub health and safety environment –raising the bar Plant and equipment 2014".
