H.E. Services order 50 JCB Hydradig machines
JCB report sensational response to launch of their innovative new wheeled excavator
JCB have received an order for 50 of their innovative new Hydradig 110W wheeled excavators from a major UK hirer – just weeks after the machine was launched.
The deal with Kent-based H.E. Services (Plant Hire) was secured at the recent Bauma construction equipment trade fair, in Munich, where the brand-new product was shown for the first time to thousands of international customers.
H.E. Services chairman Hugh Edeleanu visited the JCB show stand to see the Hydradig in action and immediately placed an order, which will be supplied through JCB dealer Greenshields JCB.
James Richardson, managing director of JCB excavator sales, said: ‘The response to the Hydradig launch has been fantastic and to win a big order so quickly from a very important UK hirer is overwhelming. We had a sensational response at Bauma to the Hydradig with unprecedented interest levels.’
Hugh Edeleanu said: ‘I am hugely impressed with the JCB Hydradig and see massive opportunities for it in the UK market. It’s not often that a truly innovative product comes along but the JCB Hydradig really does break the mould. The fact that it has been developed specifically for modern construction sites will really resonate with our customers.’
According to JCB, the Hydradig – which goes into production next month – is a completely new and innovative tool-carrying solution that is set to radically change the way in which modern construction projects are undertaken, particularly in congested urban environments and on busy road networks. The machine has been developed, say JCB, to have the best visibility, stability, mobility, manoeuvrability and serviceability.
