This month sees the replacement of our six 2 year old JCB Backhoe Loaders, together with the purchase of an additional two machines, making our current fleet of JCB Backhoe Loaders all eco-friendly machines in line with our carbon footprint reduction policy.

We have also replaced our two oldest excavators (5 years and 4 years old) with similar models from Doosan, which also have a newer cleaner engine than their predecessors.

Our investment in these new machines, together with the our existing fleet will see us in good standing to complete current and future projects.
