JARVIE Plant has snapped up a trio of 14-tonne Hyundai HX140 crawler excavators from Young Plant Sales, cementing a business relationship between the two firms which has lasted more than 30 years.
The machines will be put to work on a range of civil engineering tasks across Scotland, with MD David Jarvie estimating that the Grangemouth-based business has now invested around £750,000 in Hyundai products including an R220LC-9A. He said, “The Hyundai machines in our fleet complement our range of dumpers, breakers and associated hire products – where reliability is key.
“The Hyundai machines are extremely reliable and offer excellent performance. The machines are of good build quality and meet the requirements and flexibility we need. They also offer a competitive whole life cost.
“The technical specifications and the safety aspects of the HX140 meet the requirements of today’s contractors. The new models also benefit from improved fuel efficiency without power level drops.”
David Jarvie added that operator feedback on the new excavators has been “very good”. He explained, “The comfortable cab and excellent performance make light work of long days. The safety aspects are also a big positive as are the user friendly ergonomic controls and touchscreen monitor.”
