    HSB Construction Insurance in action

    A plant hirer’s customer reported their hired-in excavator had toppled over onsite, and became partially submerged underwater. The excavator's cabin had been deformed, and its electronic controls, engine air intake, radiators, and coolers were all submerged. The engine was deemed to be beyond repair, and the electronic controls needed to be replaced.
    Following an insured’s telehandler’s battery warning light becoming illuminated, a full inspection of the machine revealed a broken fan belt, damaged alternator cable and head gasket, as well as damage to both the engine loom and main chassis loom’s insulation material. The machine was deemed to be repairable.
