One of the most popular machines within the scrap metal handling industry is the German engineered Atlas 350MH. Offering more than one hundred years of manufacturing expertise, the Atlas range of material handlers are famed for their reliability.
Supplied by the UK’s Contract Hire specialists, Contract Plant Rental, an ever-popular Atlas 350MH has recently landed with H Ripley & Co.

To meet an increasing demand for their services, H Ripley & Co have recently added a new Atlas 350MH to their fleet, supplied by Contract Plant Rental on long term contract hire. Contract Plant Rentals Stu Lambert explains, “I have been working as a supply partner to Jason and Simon for some time now, they find a benefit to using CPR as we are not tied to a single manufacturer and have the ability to source any OEM. I initially supplied them a Kramer having discussed their requirements; we arranged a demo with the right spec machine and thus our joint operation began.” Stu added, “A few months on, Ripleys were looking to replace an aging Sennebogen machine. We looked at a few manufacturers and presented them with the best all round package for servicing, reliability, availability, and machine spec. I presented them with the Atlas 350MH complete with 18m boom and it was received with delight by the operators and both Jason and Simon.”
