MORRIS Leslie Plant Hire Ltd is expanding its fleet with 30 new Case crawler excavators in the 13 tonne to 21 tonne class.
The company took delivery of 20 of Case’s 13 tonne CX130C machines last year, then recently took another 10 machines, this time the larger CX210C model.
The firm operates a network of nine hire depots throughout the UK from Perth to Plymouth with the new Cases all being introduced to support the on hire business in England.
“We see Case as an important partner as we continue to expand and renew our fleet,” said Graham Ogilvie, Group Operations Director with Morris Leslie. “We initially purchased twenty 13 tonne excavators and have been very satisfied with their performance. On the strength of this, we went ahead and purchased a further ten CX210Cs, expanding our portfolio to 20 tonnes.”
The CX130C and CX210C models are from Case’s popular C series. They are powered by new low emission Tier 4 Interim engines and boast the Case Intelligent Hydraulic System.
“They offer excellent fuel economy which is a huge plus for our customers,” added Graham Ogilvie.
