Digger giant JCB has secured one of the biggest deals of the year for its X-Series range of tracked excavators after an investment by one of the Midlands’ leading civil engineering companies.
Chasetown Civil Engineering has bought 20 X-Series machines as part of a £3 million investment in new machinery.
The deal also includes the addition of JCB 3, 5 and 8-tonne compact excavator models to its fleet.
The order from the Burntwood firm was placed with Gunn JCB and the new machines join an extensive fleet which delivers a range of civil engineering services to housebuilders including infrastructure, roads, sewers, groundworks, earthworks and excavation.
The company has also purchased a number of Leica Geosystem MC1 3D excavator guidance systems along with Leica surveying equipment aiding the operator to accurately and efficiently achieve the planned design when carrying out groundworks.
Chasetown Civil Engineering managing director, Euan Grant said: “The X Series models are first class – we are delighted with their performance. Our operators love the smoothness of the controls, the strong performance and the comfort of the cabs, all adding up to a very efficient and productive excavator. The JCB and Leica technology works seamlessly to give us what we need.
“We are very keen to support British businesses, particularly one so local to our own operations and especially of course during such difficult times. With depots convenient for our sites, Gunn JCB provides excellent back-up too.”
