About Leeds Plant Hire

Our Leeds plant hire and sales depot (Head Office) was where it all started for us in 1949, with Wilfred Chippindale opening our first ever depot on Barrack Street, LS7. Since then, we’ve moved and upgraded to the large modern site we’re now on, consisting of two buildings Prima House and Butterbowl Works, which house our Plant, Tools, Cabin and Excavator Attachments divisions. We also have our full plant sales operation here, with new and used plant machinery in stock available to view.

We’ve always been a leading local provider of plant hire and sales in Leeds, and we strive to provide the best service in the area as we have done for the past 75+ years. Aside from our Head Office, we also have our plant hire centre at Prima House, alongside our new plant sales division. The team here at Leeds have collective experience well over 100+ years, so you can rest assured we’ve got your back and will be your on-hand expert for any projects.

We also have a full Stihl manufacturer qualified workshop in the back, so should you need any of your equipment servicing or setting up we’re here ready to go. Many of the other Stihl shops in the region don’t have the same level of training as our staff and as such can only service a handful of products, however, we can service everything from ride-on mowers all the way down to circular saws.
