Wrexham-based concrete flooring specialist Knights Construction has a new Bobcat T770 compact tracked loader with some fancy attachments, including laser grader, six-way dozer blade, scarifier, and combination bucket and pallet forks.
Knights Construction does a lot of concrete floors for factories and warehouses and, increasingly, for farms – including cattle and poultry sheds and vegetable stores.
Contracts manager Danny Bradshaw says: “We have always aimed to push boundaries in the industry. We helped to implement the original laser controlled dozers 10 years ago for example. But I believe the arrival of the new Bobcat T770 tracked loader and laser grader is an epic moment for our business, allowing us to offer the most technologically advanced machinery within the concrete industry.
