The History Of Machine Serve

Machine Serve was started in 2003 by Phil Davey, who started from the back of a van servicing mainly telescopic handlers. Phil soon took on selling Dieci telescopic handlers and Hanix mini excavators. 2007 saw the partnership with Multiquip to supply and service their range of small plant and concreting equipment. This was an important percentage of Machine Serve's income. Machine Serve has helped to build up some agricultural products with manufacturers such as; Teagle, NC Engineering, Twose and a strong prescence with Hall Engineering attachments.  Machine Serve is well recognised in the area for selling Arrowhead breakers, particularly with post drivers. 

In 2015 we saw various new products on board. One of the most prominent has been the Lumag range of German imported garden machinery and small plant; which includes dumpers, mowers, stump grinders and much more. 

2017 Unfortunately the demise of Hanix had started and Machine Serve took on selling Yanmar as a sub dealer.

2019 saw Machine Serve dealing direct with Yanmar Construction Europe. This has made a huge difference to the price of machines and parts and has meant that Machine Serve and Yanmar are well placed to be very competitive in the market place.

Many manufacturers fit the above axles like JD, Ford, Manitou, Matbro and McCormick to name a few.

In some cases saving up to 50% on the same part from the same production line. With the added reassurance that your high value machine is receiving quality parts, it makes sense to ring Machine Serve. Next time you have an axle to repair and you want to save money without compromise, just give us a call.

Periodical Thorough Examination Report ( also described as safety inspection , certificate or test) HSE requires all Telescopic Handlers to conform to LOLER and PUWER legislations. Part of this legislation is that your telescopic handler should be examined periodically by a competent person. Periodically means no longer than 6 months for a telescopic handler being used with a man basket or 12 months if used solely as a telescopic handler. This period could be less if the examiner feels that the conditions worked in or the state of telescopic handler deems it necessary to be shortened. We have examiners who can test and issue you with a Periodical Thorough Examination Report. For prices or further information please contact us.
