The second part of our annual review concentrates on July - December which included the small matters of a re-brand and new excavator line!
Thank you from everyone at Molson Compact Equipment for your support during 2018. Let's hope 2019 brings more success for everyone.
Hands up who spotted the Dieci telehandlers working at European race tracks over the summer? Twelve Zeus 37.7s and Dedalus 30.7s were on hand not only to help with race week setups but also to clear up after any unfortunate accidents. We watched an early collision in one race, in the space of a few minutes, the Zeus 37.7 machine positioned in the escape route, at the exit of the corner, hitched up and carried off the two cars, while marshals removed dangerous fragments from the track.
Plant Hire firm, Plantforce, added a number of Dieci Apollo 25.6R telehandlers into their growing fleet. The Apollo 25.6R a model specifically spec’d for hire work and suiting the requirements of Plantforce. Further options were added to these machines to make them ready for hire. This included; green flashing beacons, radio systems and reverse camera kits. All of which was fitted by our engineers.
We supported the Molson Group stand at the APF forestry show by having a Bergmann 4010 tracked dumper on the demo plot. This 10 tonne, tracked dumper with a rotating skip and fully turning operators platform is perfect for use on large outdoor jobs such as forestry work. Features such as: low ground pressure, powerful engine and a large comfortable cab, make it it particularly suited to this work.
*Hello Molson Compact Equipment LTD*
In line with the current evolution of the Molson Group, we re-branded as Molson Compact Equipment LTD in October this year. This meant our site just outside of Stratford-upon-Avon, became the Molson Group ‘Centre of Excellence’ for all compact plant equipment.
Molson Compact Equipment Managing Director, Robert Brown said of the changes “Being the centre of excellence will involve us being responsible for the processing of Sales, Parts, Servicing, Storage and PDI for the Molson Group compact ranges. Whilst still offering ongoing Yanmar parts and service support”
A big part of the re-brand is the addition of Kobelco mini excavators to the Molson Compact offering. These excavator models, from 1-10 tonne, perfectly complement the existing lines of Ammann, Dieci, Bergmann and Cormidi plant machinery. Models including the 1 tonne, SK10SR-2, 2.8 tonne SK28SR-6, 7 tonne SK75SR-3 and 8 tonne SK85MSR-3 all started going through our workshop in Novemeber.
A group of Molson Compact staff, as well as current and prospective customers took a trip to the Bergmann factory in Meppen, Germany. It was great to see how these high quality dumpers are put together and the build quality along each step of production. Also on site was the car part manufacturing area, where Bergmann produce manifolds for Porsche and Ferrari.
2018 has been some year for Molson Compact Equipment LTD!
We have seen many changes over the past 12 months, but now we are in a position where we can offer you the best lineup of products in our history.
Below are just some of our highlights and favorite moments from the first six months of the year. Part 2 will follow soon...
A project to recondition 5 Dieci F7000 truck mixers started in January. These trucks have had a 24/7 working life on a major construction site. The job at hand wasn't to just replace but actually improve the specifications on the machine. Once the cement was cleared the mechanics roles and jobs included: Replacing components such as; starter motors, batteries, alternators and filters, as well as a complete re paint.
Once again we showed a range of smaller products, well suited to the hire industry at 2018's EHS. This year we saw a high interest in the Dieci Apollo 25.6R telehandler as well as the Cormidi hit-tip tracked dumpers. The highlight of the show this year was securing a deal to provide Ammann ARR1575 trench rollers to a large hire firm.
In March we had a Zeus 33.11, Dieci's most compact stabilised telehandler, making a great 'hands on' impression, working on a national home builders site.
A big benefit of the 33.11 is that the jack legs deploy within the width of the wheels. Thus allowing the operator to still be able to lift to maximum height, even on compact sites, perfect for modern day house building.
For our hard work on the continued deal we have to supply Ardent Hire with their rollers, we received a special commendation from Ammann.
Well done to everyone from Sales, Parts, Service and Marketing who helped us gain this award.
Our product portfolio grew further in June with the addition of Bergmann dumpers. The newly remodelled Bergmann ADT150 wheeled dumpers leads the new lineup. These machines come with either a swivel, rear or three side tip and have optional 180° rotating seats with reversing cameras, so the operator can always be facing the direction of travel. This key safety feature makes these machines well suited to industries such as tunneling, mining and quarrying.
A very hot, dusty but successful Hillhead show was held in late June. The launch of the Bergmann machines took centre stage but there was much interest in the Dieci telehandler models and Ammann compaction equipment. A prototype ARX-2 series roller was also on the stand, a glimpse into the future of tandem rollers.
The Dieci Icarus family of machines includes two models; the 40.14 & 40.17. Both of these telehandlers are suitable for jobs in the construction and industry sectors, thanks to their great strength, power and lifting heights.
The specs of the Dieci Icarus' are as follows:
The Icarus models also have these as key highlights:

This week we have sold one of our Dieci 40.7 telehandlers, to a customer who required a powerful, yet precise machine. Whilst having all the operator comforts such as air con and a large fabric seat.
This fixed-boom telehandler with a specific vocation for heavy and intensive use, is equipped with an innovative second generation VS EVO2 hydrostatic transmission (Continuously Variable) that allows the operator to always find the best possible speed/power ratio in any operating conditions. Thus ensuring unrivaled smoothness and fluidity of movement.
The VS EVO2 transmission combined with the electronic management system, also allows fuel savings up to 20%.
The new DCS (Descent Control System) ensures maximum boom lowering speeds even with engine running on minimum, allowing the users exceptional maneuverability and greater comfort.
Further benefits gained from the DCS system is; more precise movements, more responsive controls at the start of a movement and increased all around stability.
Furthermore, the machine is less prone to the environmental conditions and is ready and efficient even when the hydraulic oil is cold.
Some key specs of the machine include:
Cab Height - 2,445 mm
Width - 2,260 mm
Unladen Weight - 7,700 kg
Maximum Speed - 40 km/h
Pull Out Force - 6,000 daN
Engine Type - FPT

We believe that our Dieci telehandlers have all of the features and benefits that can make them market leaders in the UK.
The full range spans 143 different models across 17 production lines, all of which are manufactured in house at Dieci's Italian factory. This range includes; compact telehandlers, handlers with jack legs, roto telehandlers, truck mixers, dumper trucks.
Whatever work you have, there's bound to be a Dieci machine perfect for your requirements... so, Why Choose Dieci?
The biblical figure, Samson is renowned for having super strength, just like the Dieci Samson telehandlers.
In fact The Samson family of machines consists of extremely strong and compact telehandlers. There outstanding power and agility qualities make them particularly suitable for heavy and intensive work both in the construction and industrial sectors.
We currently are offering four different models of Samson handlers, you can see more spec information on each one here:
The 'Samsons' are particularly suitable for loading and unloading materials, due to its swing kinematic mechanism equipped with counter-lever. This allows operators to considerably increase the rotation angle of the fork carrier plate, particularly effective if combined with the use of the bucket.
The cab, ROPS-FOPS approved, is designed to ensure a high level of comfort and can be further equipped with an enhanced air conditioning system which allows perfect air circulation inside the cab. The on-board computer with LCD display, allows the operator to monitor all the machine operating parameters.

We currently offer 29 different telehandlers in our Dieci construction range. Each one with slightly different capabilities to suit the requirements of your job site.
These machines are split into product families such as Zeus and Hercules and the model number represents the maximum lift capacity and lift height. For example the Dedalus 32.6 can lift 3.2 tonne and to a height of 6 metres, the Icarus 40.14 = 4 tonne and 14 metre, and so on.
Below is a list of each machine, where you can see from the model number its capabilities. For more information, including specs and further features of the Dieci machines visit our DIECI WEBPAGE HERE.
Alongside a wide range of fixed telehanders, we also offer Rotating or Roto handlers in our Dieci portfolio. These machines are the Pegasus models and are available with 360 degree rotation.
There are 5 x 360° models that we have already had plenty of interest in, they are:
Dieci do say that these machine are better than a boomlift due to greater stability and accuracy at extreme heights. An wide operational coverage makes them better than a telescopic boom and the all round agility and ability makes it better than a crane!
Below is highlighted some of the many highlights these Pegasus machines have, you can see more on these by viewing our Dieci Pegasus webpage, where you will find brochures and spec sheets.
Easy & Safe Work System
Inside the ROPS-FOPS-TOPS cab there is an advanced on-board computer, complete with safety features such as; anti-tip sensors, self leveling legs, load capacity sensors. The work system automatically adjusts the capacity systems based on the position of the outriggers to give optimal and safe work.
A new 5 in 1 joystick with a 'dead man' sensor enables proportional and integrated movements, even when the machine is moving. This results in far better precision of movements and is more comfortable for the operator.
The latest generation of Kubota engine technology, with fully electronic control, has led to a reduction in fuel consumption by over 10%. These 3.8 litres diesel turbo engines give a rated power output of 74.5 kW.
Dieci have paid plenty of attention to operator comfort and you will notice a very spacious cab when you first step in. Equipped with the widest door on the market, accessing the comfortable drivers seat is easy. Inside you will see an easy to read display screen showing all the real time information necessary to operate the vehicle.
Soundproofing, adjustable steering column, storage compartments and various accessories such as; air condiitong, radio and pneumatic seat all help improve user experience.
The window wiper even cleans the glass at the top of the cab for an unparalleled 360° view
