Dave Taylor – Director
Dave bought Penrith Tool Hire in 2007; he had always had a dream to run his own business and be his own boss.
He is a trained vehicle mechanic, but has also worked on track maintenance machines on the railway.
In a previous life Dave was also a class 1 HGV driver and a shot firer/machine operator in the quarries.
Dave holds the IPAF 1B Training & IPAF Harness User Training.
Dave really enjoys dealing with the customers, but can’t resist getting his hands dirty and getting involved with the repairs. His mechanical knowledge is extensive and he can turn his hand to fixing most machines.
Dave has a passion for motorsports. It started out with grass tracking, leading onto building and driving rally cars. Dave has also competed on trials bikes and is a member of the local 4 x 4 trials club.
In 2012 Dave won the ANECCC drivers championship and Lynsey took second place in the ANECCC co-drivers championship.
