The deal comprises nine CX210 and eight CX130 C series crawler excavators.

Allma, a groundworks contractor working predominantly in the house-building sector, has an all-Case fleet, with more than 60 Case excavators across the group, ranging from 1.8 tonnes up to 30 tonnes, on sites throughout central and western Scotland.

This latest order represents both renewal and expansion of the existing fleet. Last year Centre Plant bought 16 Case machines, which included three CX18Bs, two CX50Bs, and 10 CX130C crawler excavators, plus a CX300C to replace a CX290 that had clocked up more than 15,000 hours.

Peter McBride, director at Centre Plant, said. “We have been a Case customer for many years so we know the brand very well. Case machines have always proved to be very efficient, so it was an easy decision for us to approach Case when we wanted to update our fleet. We had already purchased several different models from the C series range last year, which we have been very impressed with. It’s simple, we need machines that we know are going to be reliable, perform well and deliver good fuel economy. Our previous Case machines all performed well, which is why we continue to place orders.”
