Jewson Tool Hire, the rental division of one the UK's biggest builder's merchants, Jewson, has ordered 340 JCB mini excavators and tracked dumpers as part of an updating of its fleet.

The order comprises 200 JCB 8014 mini excavators, 100 JCB 8008 micro excavators and 40 HTD5 tracked dumpsters. Jewson now has 900 compact machines available for hire from its hire branches.

Mr Pedersen said; "We selected JCB after extensive research into a number of suppliers. Each was given a clear indication of our requirements but JCB's proposal met our needs for supply, training, repair, maintenance, fleet management, annual certification and, of course, price.

"We already use these three machine types, having operated JCB mini excavators and dumpsters for several years, and they have proved great additions to our fleet. This order helps us to kick start our aggressive small plant replacement programme, meet our customer needs and will allow us to stock our new 2008 branch openings."
