Broxburn firm invests in £1 million fleet deal

GORDON Bow Plant Hire has invested more than £1 million in new JCB machines.

The Broxburn-based business placed an order which includes 220X and 140X tracked excavators and JCB Loadalls, including the 20-metre, 540-200 model.

The latest arrivals join a fleet which already includes over 60 JCB machines.

Supplied by Scot JCB, the machines are set to be deployed on new housebuilding, infrastructure, forestry and agricultural projects across Scotland.

Gordon Bow plant manager, Jason Taylor, said, “We chose JCB for this order as we have a long history over the years with the products that it manufactures and thanks to the support and back-up that our dealer Scot JCB provides throughout Scotland. We have identified that they are the machines that work best for our business and customers alike.”

The 220X, 20-tonne tracked excavator is described as being designed to provide ‘maximum operator comfort, durability and reliability in operation’. The 540-200 Loadall is JCB’s largest construction telehandler and features a five-piece boom giving 20m reach height.
