Buckhurst lodges £6.5m JCB order

15 May 14 Buckhurst Specialist Plant has placed a £6.5m order with JCB machinery for 25 backhoe loaders and 100 Loadall telehandlers.


Buckhurst Specialist Plant has a hire fleet of 2,000 machines operating out of Lancashire, Leeds, West Lothian and a new depot in Aberdeen.

Chairman John Walsh said: “We feel it is the right time to make this sizeable investment and capitalise on the definite upturn we have seen in groundworks projects as more and more new build sites appear. The new machines expand our nationwide fleet and will also increase our presence in the Scottish Highlands – stocking our recently opened a site in Aberdeen.

“Nothing can compete with JCB on reliability or resale value so the total cost of ownership is low. Fuel economy is also a major factor for our customers so the new JCB T4i Ecomax engines on all these machines will be a real selling point. The Loadalls ensure we have a modern fleet with the latest innovations and we always buy JCB backhoe loaders as they are what our customers ask for.”

He added: “We are one of the few companies in our sector to have ridden the storm and actually grown over the last five years – by guaranteeing our customers great service along with reliable, state-of-the-art equipment. This order for the latest JCB technology will only help reinforce that promise.”
