First impressions

There was plenty of new kit on the stands of Scot JCB and sister company Stewart Plant Sales.
Among the machines making their UK debuts were the new 550-80, JCB’s highest capacity Loadall telehandler, a 2.7 tonne mini and the latest skid steer loaders. Heavy line products were represented by six JS excavators while a 17.5 tonne wheeled model with hydraulically elevating cab raised eyebrows.
