Plant Hire UK orders 250 JCBs

MERSEYSIDE-based Plant Hire UK has invested heavily in its fleet with the purchase of nearly 250 new JCBs.

The bulk of the order, supplied by dealer Gunn JCB, was for 230 JCB Loadalls, ranging from compact models through to the 540-170 which offers a lift capacity of four tonnes and alift height of 16.7 metres.

Plant Hire has now bought 500 JCB Loadalls since it was established five years ago.

Graham Jones, Haydock-based Plant Hire’s managing director, said: “We have used JCB telehandlers since we started because they are high quality, easy to operate, reliable and the back-up and parts availability are second to none. Nothing has changed in our eyes, as these huge milestones demonstrate – you get what you pay for and JCB is clearly number one when it comes to telehandlers.
“The ongoing update of our fleet is part of our commitment to provide customers with the latest and safest equipment in excellent condition, ensuring no machine is more than two years old.”
