Case for Ruttles

Digger Blogger | 09:20, Thu February 10 2022

Lancashire-based Ruttle Plant has ordered a further 30 Case machines from its local dealer to add to the 70 that it already owns.

Ruttle Plant is a fan of Case and consider it to be the most reliable brand that it has operated.

In 2021 it grew its fleet of Case excavators to more than 70 machines and has now placed an order for another 30 with dealer Dennis Barnfield Ltd.

Director Gareth Ruttle explains: “With a fleet numbering in excess of 500 machines across our rental and contracting businesses, we monitor and measure performance rigorously. The Case machines in our fleet are consistently the most reliable.”

He adds: “To provide our rental customers and operators with the latest and most productive models and machines that are also comfortable for operators, our strategy is to update and replace machines on an ongoing basis. That means selling on machines, so residual values are very important. All these factors show Case machines offer the best business case.”

Founded in 1958 as a plant hire business supplying farmers originally, Ruttle has grown and diversified. Headquartered in Chorley, it now has four divisions: Plant Hire & Sales; Haulage & Tippers, Recycling & Waste Transfer; and Ruttle Contracting. There is also a North American arm of the business – Digger Rentals Ltd in Canada and Rentrite Inc in the USA.

Barnfield’s sales director Mal Mackay knows his customer well. “Ruttle is a growing business, so its demand for new machines products, service and parts solutions is steadily increasing,” he says. “The high volume of new machines being delivered means robust processes and excellent communication.”

Gareth Ruttle concludes: “We’re experiencing growth across every part of our business. As a result, we need reliable, responsive and proactive plant and equipment partners, like Case and Barnfield, to support that growth. And that’s what the superior quality and comfort of Case machines and the tailored support from Barnfield are delivering.”
