Lomond Plant has bought more than 250 JCB models in a deal worth in excess of £13m, including a fleet of the brand new JCB X Series excavators.
Supplied by dealer Scot JCB, Lomond Plant’s new 220X models are being used across a range of projects including housebuilding, windfarms and utility work.
The huge investment forms part of Lomond Plant’s ongoing expansion plans, which has already seen growth in to the North West of England and the Midlands with a new depot in Yorkshire set to open. Other JCB models making up the massive order include mini excavators, tracked excavators, site dumpers, backhoe loaders and compaction equipment.
Lomond Plant’s joint managing director, Ross Easton said: “We always choose JCB for the value, parts availability from the JCB World Parts Centre and the continual superb service from our dealer, Scot JCB. In addition to those factors, the enhanced operator comfort and robust design really stood out on the new X Series. We’ve had some great reviews on the machine from operators saying it’s by far the best tracked excavator produced by JCB in terms of cab layout and comfort - and also the performance and control of the machine has hugely improved.
The brand new JCB 220X is a 20-tonne tracked excavator model launched earlier this year following a £110m investment. It is manufactured at JCB Heavy Products in Uttoxeter.
