EDC Hire Drives

ABB hire drives - the largest range of hire drives in Scotland. EDC stocks a wide range of ABB hire drives from 2kW to 1 megawatt - available for immediate shipment.

Whether you have an emergency breakdown and need an immediate replacement to keep your production line running, or are simply looking to test the effectiveness of a vsd on an application, EDC can supply a hire drive to suit; programmed to your requirements before being shipped. Convenient & cost effective, a hire drive can allow you to test new applications & production methods without committing to a purchase. And should you want to prove energy savings, EDC also offer free on-site energy surveys to show you what savings your hire drive will make for you - both in terms of carbon emissions & energy bills. Backed by the technical expertise of our service team, we can ensure that you are up & running with minimal downtime. See our Hire Drive Services to see the full range of support services we offer on our extensive range of ABB hire drives. Still unsure if a hire drive is for you? Why not look at our section on why you would use a VSD? See a copy of our Hire Agreement.
