More Volvos for JJ Groundworks

Buckingham-based JJ Groundworks has added five new Volvo excavators to its plant fleet.

The bulk purchase comes a year after the company took delivery of the first Volvo EC160E to be sold in Great Britain.

The new machines that JJ Groundworks has purchased are a reduced-swing 15-tonne ECR145E, two reduced-swing 9-tonne ECR88Ds (to replace two older units), a new 6-tonne zero-swing ECR58D and the latest 3.5-tonne zero-swing ECR35D.

 “We’ve been really impressed with the performance of the EC160E since it replaced our six year old C model and in particular the fuel consumption has dropped by an impressive 18% making it very efficient indeed,” said Bed Radford, who runs the business with his father Jack Radford.

“With the increase in the volume of contracts throughout 2016 and well into the new year we needed to add as well as replace some of our older machines in the fleet. Based on our positive experience of operating Volvo machines, their reliability and high residual values when it’s time to trade, we decided to stick with what we know,” he added.
