Industrial Engines UK confirms attendance at Hillhead 2020

With the end of 2019 now in view, the team here at Industrial Engines are beginning preparations for the many exciting prospects that 2020 holds…including exhibiting our engine range at the famous Hillhead Quarrying exhibition!

Hillhead? That’s right, the UK’s largest quarrying, construction and recycling exhibition, with reports saying that demand for space at next year’s event has reached a record high!

Over the past 2 years, Industrial Engines-Grimsby, has been investing heavily in growing our product range, our team and finding new ways to continually improve the service we provide our customers, all of which has culminated in the decision to exhibit our range of engines, once again, at Hillhead 2020.

So what does our range include? Currently we stock Deutz, Kubota, Perkins, Lister-Petter and Caterpillar engines as our core brands, but it’s not unusual for us to see makes like Isuzu, Yanmar, Volvo and JCB pass through our doors. 

The exhibition – taking place in Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, between 23-25 June 2020 – promises to be a most eventful and beneficial occasion for all those who attend.  On the Industrial Engines stand, you will be able to see first-hand the quality of our diesel engines and learn more about how we can help you deliver the power your industry requires. We stock a wide range of engines specifically suited to the quarrying, construction and recycling sector and we will be bringing some of them along as part of our interactive product showcase, so make sure you pay us a visit.

Attendees can take the opportunity to speak with our experienced team to learn about our products, goals and exciting next day UK delivery service which aims to make downtime a thing of the past.

Will we see you there? We certainly hope so!

Industrial Engines Celebrate 40 years of trading!

Time flies when you’re having fun – certainly the case over the last 40 years at Industrial Engines. From humble beginnings, in 1978 we have grown the business year on year to a full-scale operation that can have over 300 diesel engines in operation at any one time. Not to mention our stock of engine spares we have to hand.


And yes, it has been fun. Diesel engines are one of the most amazing inventions of all time. Just stop and think of all the things that take their power from a diesel engine: diggers, dumpers, rollers, crushers, screeners, tractors, forklifts, harvesters, boats, trucks, cars – where would we be without them?! Working in the industry gives an incredible insight as to how they keep things moving all over the globe. There’s nothing more fun than supplying a replacement engine to a desperate operator to get them up and running again.


Has it all been fun? Well, there’s been the odd time where selling diesel engines has been a mucky business. But we’ve never looked back. Industry relies on power and we’re here to deliver it with diesel engines.


What’s ahead? The future for Industrial Engines continues to look promising. With a whole bank of service improvements up our sleeve, our mission gets stronger. To satisfy is our satisfaction – this drives our passion to continually develop to further support the wheels of industry.


Keep in touch with us to find out more about how we’re delivering the power to industry.

Engine maintenance advice this winter.

Winter Engine Maintenance

Construction and Industry don’t stop just because it’s getting cold – in fact, it generally increases! We use pumps to get rid of water, excavators to clear snow – these are just a couple of diesel driven plant items that are needed more than ever in the winter season. We’ve compiled some top tips that we’ve picked up over the years, showing you how to take great care of your engine in the winter and improve its overall lifespan:

Our Engine Tips And Tricks:

  • Never underestimate the need for warm-up and cool-down time. It’s essential that diesel-powered engines are given a minimum of 5 minutes to warm up in the winter months. Plan well ahead and make sure you allow enough time to get the engine going before pushing it to its limits.
  • Keep the fuel tank full. If the fuel tank is running low, condensation can form in the tank and freeze, causing blockages later down the line in the engine mechanism. Fuel prices may keep rising but they will never outweigh the cost of a replacement engine.
  • Check your batteries regularly. Summer heat can cause extensive corrosion and fluid evaporation so it’s always worth giving the battery a full and thorough check before the cold, winter months take hold.
  • General checks and maintenance. It’s always a good idea when the opportunity presents itself to give your engine a full once-over. Check for any signs of fluid leakage, rust and corrosion or other areas of damage. This can improve its lifespan, while also improving site safety, reducing slips and falls from leaking engine fluids.
  • Replenish all engine oil and coolant levels on a regular basis, making sure that you have the relevant amount of anti-freeze at the same time. A seized engine can cause a huge amount of downtime and no end of trouble, affecting not only your business but your reputation and productivity.
  • Consider winter storage options. Are you OK to leave it out in freezing temperatures? Or is it worth giving it some shelter for further protection? In our opinion, if you take care of your engine, it will take care of you. Make sure it is stored away safely in dry and if possible warm conditions when not in use.

With 30 years of experience supplying and refurbishing diesel engines, we’ve come across many machines that have been severely neglected – especially in the winter months. A lot of the preparation you need to do is simple (and common sense) however it is important to set aside the time to do it!
By following these best practices you are sure to get the best results from your Industrial diesel engine, no matter which sector you work in.

Industrial Engines shows its true colours

A team from Industrial Engines were thrilled to actively help out at the St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice 5K Colour Dash on Saturday 9th May 2015.
The Colour Dash, with 2,500 runners was the first ever to be held in the county and took place at the Lincolnshire Showground. The fields were packed with cheering spectators, volunteers and runners keen to raise as much money as possible for the local charity.

“Runners were colour-bombed with environmentally-friendly powder paint – a different colour to mark every kilometre of the race”, explains Industrial Engines’ Hamilton Smith. “Then at the end each runner was given a bag of colour to be thrown at the same time – like a technicolored explosion!”
The team from Industrial Engines were delighted to raise money for the hospice which is dedicated to caring for people who are suffering from terminal illnesses and their families.

The Industrial Engines team were primarily involved in colour bombing the runners at the 1K colour station. It was a very messy job, but fantastic fun and definitely an event that Industrial Engines will continue to support in the future.

The sell-out event raised a total of £1,000’s resulting in what the charity described as “the most successful event in the history of St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice”.
