Handling up to 30” rim diameter and a comfortable 70kg in wheel weight, the 200-3 is deceptively high spec’, yet retains its main characteristic of minimising footprint and offering the ‘eco-drive’ low-spin motorised technology.

Founded in 1957 by David Short, Shorts Group started life as Shorts Timber Services with its primary business focussing on tree clearance. The company cleared acres of forest to make way for the construction of the M2 and M4 motorways during the 1960’s. More recently, in 2009 Shorts Agricultural Services were granted a Royal Warrant for the contracting services they supplied to the Queen’s local farms.

It is an accolade Shorts are proud to continue to hold today.

In its continuing commitment to recycling, Shorts opened a second MRF site in Aldershot in 2011 enabling the company to expand its skip hire and waste management services further into North Hampshire and Surrey. Having been based in Ascot for 50 years the company outgrew its former offices and moved to Bracknell in 2014 to allow for further expansion.
