First Volvo 50 tonners for Lynch

Stanmore-based L Lynch Plant Hire has invested in a pair of 50-tonne Volvo excavators.

The first EC480E has already been put to work and the second arrives next month. It is the first time that Lynch has bought this size of machine from Volvo.

The first arrival is already on a long-term hire contract on harbour development work at Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. It joins more than 30 items of plant on the site, includes 14- and 21-tonne Volvo excavators – all on hire from Lynch.

To satisfy a range of applications, from muck shifting to demolition, Lynch has specified the EC480E to a high standard. “We wanted to maximise the full potential of this significant investment so have ordered the machine with a host of optional extras,” said Lynch national service manager Giles O’Sullivan-Wade.

“For instance, we’ve specified X3 grab rotation for handling rotating selector grabs and other attachments requiring an additional hydraulic service; mass excavation equipment and hydraulic quick fit for fast inter-changeability of end attachments. Thus configured the machine will be able to satisfy the hire demands of our customers without exception," he said.

Boxing ring safety rails and kick plates and a 360º Brigade Elite camera system for all round visibility have also been specified.
