Miller gets £1m breaker order from Hewden

Plant hire firm Hewden has placed a £1m order for more than 180 Miller breaker attachments.

The Miller breakers are for use with excavators from 1.5-tonne to 22-tonnes and telehandlers up to 17-metre reach. Deliveries start next month.

Hewden is also introducing a new hanger system that Miller has designed for its exclusive use that allows customers to swap attachments on both Caterpillar and JCB machines.

Hewden said that the breakers are also the first on the market to include both an automated lubrication system across the entire range and a tracker fitted to each machine to locate if lost or stolen.

Hewden CEO Adrian Murphy said: “Innovation is at the heart of what we do and an integral part of how we add value to the customer experience. Both the automated lubrication system and the trackers are designed to minimise downtime and reduce cost, meaning our customers can get on with what they do best.”
