Hewitt Plant Hire goes for JCB again

Digger Blogger | 21:39, Tue December 06 2011

Hewitt Plant Hire has recently taken delivery of a brand new JCB JS145LC hydraulic excavator. Regular Digger Blog reader Scott Hastings went to see the machine on its first job on site.

Long term JCB customers Hewitt Plant Hire didn’t hesitate in choosing another hydraulic excavator from their local dealership TC Harrison JCB, having had excellent service, parts availability and second to none back up in the past it was simply a no brainer.

Hewitt Plant hire is based just outside Gainsborough in Lincolnshire, the company has many local customers and clients including the local council, utility companies, and small house builders.

This new machines operator is Steve Collishaw, who has been with the company for 15 years now. Commenting on his latest JCB machine Steve said, “It’s early days for me with the machine, but so far it does everything I ask of it and more, I also find it a lot quieter than my old JS130 too”

Steve continued to sing the praises for his new mount, “I also like the way JCB have tweaked the cab interior, with new bigger foot pedals, a really supportive high back suspension seat, and the much better climate control which will be great on those long hot summer day shifts”

Steve’s only disappointment was that his new machine has not got a Bluetooth facility on the radio, which apparently one of his fellow operators has got in his machine.  

Exterior fitments include new larger rear view mirrors, including a rear counterweight blind spot mirror, rear view camera, cab vandal guards and a twin locking fully automatic hydraulic quick hitch.

The Digger Blog thanks Scott Hastings for sending us the photos, and we wish Hewitt Plant Hire and Steve all the best with the new machine.
