The order from the Burntwood, Staffordshire firm was placed with dealer Gunn JCB.
All the new JCB excavators were specified machine control ready, with base kits fitted in the factory, giving the flexibility to move control units from one machine to another as needed. The new system allows the engineering team to remotely monitor and upload data to the machines, reducing the need for site visits.
Chasetown Civil Engineering managing director Euan Grant said: “The X Series models are first class – we are delighted with their performance. Our operators love the smoothness of the controls, the strong performance and the comfort of the cabs, all adding up to a very efficient and productive excavator. The JCB and Leica technology works seamlessly to give us what we need.”
