Stafford firm takes first EC140E

Following its launch at this year’s Plantworx exhibition in June, the first fourteen-tonne Volvo EC140 E series machine has been delivered to Stafford-based LRD Plant Hire Ltd.

LRD specialises in the construction of concrete flooring for large industrial and agricultural buildings along with the associated works for ground preparation.

Looking to add another machine to his fleet, owner Lindsey Dickin had the opportunity to operate the larger EC220E at a Volvo open day event earlier in the year. “I was particularly impressed with the controllability and gradeability of the machine,” says Mr Dickin. “These features are very important for the work we undertake in getting the groundwork absolutely correct and level prior to laying concrete. Since it was time to add another machine to my fleet and having run Volvo excavators for the last eight years I was happy to stick with what I know best so opted for the new EC140E.”
