Wearmouth Plant Hire is a family run firm in Cumbria for 40 years with knowledge in agriculture and construction. We have a large range of plant and machinery for hire through out Cumbria and we supply equipment to the following areas:
- Kirkby Stephen
The agricultural contracting business started operating from south Stainmore in 1970 with a Massey Ferguson 65 tractor and bailer, working for local farmers in the upper eden valley.
Silage making equipment was acquired to keep up with the changes in farming and in 1985 our first self propelled forager was added to the growing fleet.
By 1990 we had 3 self propelled foragers complete with full silage making services.
Due to demand in 1975 our first wheeled digger was purchased and the plant hire business has steadily expanded. In 1986 the business relocated to Church Brough where it presently operates from.
To keep up with the growing demand the first tracked digger was acquired in 1988 which was followed by a range of mini diggers, breaker, dumpers, rollers and wagons.
After the effects of the foot and mouth outbreak in 2001, it was time for diversification with a mobile tracked crusher.
In 2009 we sold the silage making machines and concentrated on private developers, builders, quarrying, recycling larger agricultural projects and haulage
We hope to keep in touch with new trends and the needs of our customers and are open to new ventures.
