The new reduced radius models are part of a package of machines delivered by Caterpillar dealer Finning to the specialist groundworks contractor.
Carey London, established in 2011, has also bought five Cat 305Es, three Cat 302.7Ds, three Cat 308Es, two Cat 312Es and a Cat 320E LRR.
The company was looking for machines with good power to size ratio for working on small and congested sites. The 14-tonne Cat 311F LRR has a reduced radius design with a tail swing of 1750mm.
Managing director Martin Carey said: “Following the booming housing market in London we are seeing much more opportunities within the sector. With the low emissions zones and lots of focus on fuel performance onsite, these new units are already proving to be very popular. The Cat 311F LRR in particular is a great piece of plant equipment and really powerful for its size, allowing us to achieve much more from a very compact unit.”
Flannery was the first company in Europe to take delivery of this new model earlier in the year. Flannery ordered ten Cat 311F LRRs as part of a £15m order with Finning for more than 200 machines.
