Worldwide Stock Depots

The Ruttle depots worldwide contain an enormous range of Plant machinery and equipment, both new and pre-owned in USA, Canada and the UK, that is ready to ship out to any worldwide location. We can fully refurbish any used Plant machinery in the Preston Depot, or can supply it in an ‘ex-site’ condition, as needed.

Modifications, Servicing and Repairs

Every Ruttle location has its own heavy plant workshop to carry out specific modifications, regular servicing and necessary repairs. This applies to our own machinery and to customer owned stock. This means that every Plant machine – hired or purchased – will be ready to get on with the job as soon as it arrives on-site.
