Groundworks specialist Tonbrie, which is based in the West Midlands, works within the housebuilding sector and has been running Case machines for more than 20 years. The current fleet comprises six 130Bs, plus other Case machines ranging from 3T to 8T.
Tonbrie Construction MD Brian Hill said: “We purchased our first Case machine in 1992, and although we have tested and owned other models over the years, we consider Case products best meet our requirements in the sectors we operate within. This is why we opted for the Case CX130. We were impressed by its innovative design and fuel economy. We felt that in comparison to other machines available within this category the CX130C provided a more robust design and manufacture. It’s important that our fleet is efficient, reliable and productive.
“It’s very important that our operators are happy with our machine choices, and they have given their seal of approval on the new CX130C.”
Case has reported healthy sales of the CX130C crawler excavator during the first six months of 2013. The range features a new low-emission Tier 4 Interim engines and the Case Intelligent Hydraulic System, which incorporates five energy-saving systems, including one that reduces engine revs during boom lowering and swinging operations.
