H.E. SERVICES (Plant Hire) LTD are delighted to announce we are working with JF Prolec


Following a review of their client’s needs, H.E. SERVICES (Plant Hire) Ltd, “World Leaders In Digger Hire” have started to roll out JF Prolec’s height and slew restrictors on selected Komatsu excavators on their hire fleet.


This system complements JF Prolec’s lifting systems already fitted on some of our 14, 22 ton & 36 ton excavators. A selection of JF Prolec’s systems are available to hire from any of H.E.SERVICES 10 depots nationwide. The new height and slew restrictors have initially been installed on new Komatsu PW160-11 2 piece boom wheeled excavators to ensure they are fully compliant to Highways England’s specifications.


It was important for H.E. SERVICES to find the right partner to provide a reliable enhanced system with experience and expertise to complement their services. With 30 years’ experience supplying machine productivity and safety systems for construction equipment, JF Prolec has set the benchmark for compliant, smart solutions.


JF Prolec’s PME500 system which monitors height and slew, including virtual walls, In addition to its RCI (Rated Capacity Indicator) capability, JF Prolec’s PME500 system monitors height and slew, while using virtual walls to provide full envelope control. It also includes a supervisory and overrides key switches, alarm and with an eight-stage valve block to provide motion cut capability. The system combines functions found in conventional RCI (Rated Capacity Indicator) and height and slew limiters into one integrated safety solution.


This system monitors the machine’s movement relative to pre-determined exclusion or safe working zones and warns the operator when approaching any limit set. In addition to this, the system also monitors the machine’s movement, warning the operator should the machine’s stability be compromised within pre-defined height or slew limits.


Fully engineered for compatibility with all major manufacturers, the system maximises productivity while maintaining strict control over the safety of the machine. The system will also provide full logging of operation and driver behaviour for later retrieval.
