The new 24t machine is George Russell’s second Volvo, the company having purchased an EC210BLC back in 2005.

“That machine proved to be a reliable and productive model and, although we replaced it with another make, we decided to come back to Volvo based on our previous experiences together with the competitive package on offer and projected residual value,” said managing director George Russell.

 “We needed a machine with extra capacity to handle some larger muck shifting contracts we’ve secured and deemed the EC240C to be a happy medium for those activities as well as the normal general purpose projects such as housing starts and ground contracting,” he added.
