Lincoln-based ART Demolition has bought a JCB 220X for dismantling duties on its projects across the Midlands. Supplied by dealer TC Harrison JCB, the machine has been specially configured for the demolition work with the addition of cab protection and heavy undercarriage guards. The modifications were made by Newark-based MCB Brothers.
Art Demolition was incorporated by John Thurlby in 2013, although its roots date back to 1960. With John in his 70s, son Adam Thurlby took over as managing director in 2015. Adam’s brother Nick also works in the family business. As well as its excavator models, the company also operates JCB wheeled loading shovels, telehandlers, excavators, tracked and wheeled skid steers. The range of equipment is completed with a DustBoss suppression unit, static and mobile welfare units, low loader and bulker trailers, forklifts and dump trucks.
