UK rental company HE Services has invested in 50 new Hydradig 110W wheeled excavators from manufacturer JCB.
JCB launched the Hydradig at Bauma Munich – described as a digging, lifting, loading and tool-carrying machine for urban construction, highway maintenance and municipal operations.
It said the fleet investment deal from HE Services was secured at the Bauma trade fair, which took place from 11 to 17 April.
It said HE 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 .
JCB Excavator Sales MD James Richardson 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 have had a sensational response at Bauma to the Hydradig with unprecedented interest levels.”
And Mr Edeleanu added, “I am hugely impressed with the JCB Hydradig and I 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.”
The JCB Hydradig goes into production next month.
