Side arm solution for Coleman

14 February 2014

JCB has supplied UK contractor Coleman & Company Ltd with four new models from its range of skid steer loaders, one 155 and three 135 models, following on from the latter’s experience with a previously purchased 135. The first machine was acquired to work in some of Coleman’s sites where space is confined and weight restrictions arise on suspended floors. The new machines will be put to work on high profile demolition projects across the country including Didcot Power Station, St David’s Shopping Centre in Swansea and Birmingham New Street Railway Station.

Key for Coleman is to keep its personnel as safe as possible on site and the side arm configuration of JCB's skid steer design appealed to the company. Coleman & Company contract support manager Malcolm Hurst said: “We work in increasingly hazardous spaces, so ensuring our operatives can work in safe conditions is of primary importance. As such, we continuously look to manage and mitigate risk where possible. The JCB skid steer models have a number of positive safety features that impressed us. These include far better all round visibility and safer access to the cab which in turn allows a demolition guard to be fitted at the front of the cab. This is something unique to JCB’s design, it is very different to any other skid steer on the market."
