www.buildingplantnews.co.uk 49 Holt JCB Matt and Martin Farwell of Farwell Plant Hire & Groundworks recently took delivery of 7 brand new JCB 3CX Backhoe Loaders. These machines will join their existing fleet and will be out working on local projects. Holt JCB have been supplying the Farwell Group with machines for decades and the Backhoe Loader has been the machine of choice from the start. Thank you for your continued support and business. Our territory manager, Terry Bishop, recently installed the JCB X Series machines for CJL with some skilled operators in W-S-M and Melksham. They all remarked on and are enjoying the cab comfort, stability and smooth controls on the new X Series machines, giving it the big thumbs up. Thanks to Andy Woodall, Mike Meecham & Mike Leyfield for their time and thanks again for the feedback and the business, we hope you enjoy many more hours in first class comfort. Kings Garden & Leisure take delivery of their brand new JCB 260-120 Roller. Pictured is Richard King who founded the business with his wife Niki in 2004. They now have two very large Garden Centres in Exmouth and Sidmouth, fully stocked with garden furniture, plants and tools with excellent restaurants/ coffee shops, and with the business now covering some 50 acres, now that’s a success story which we are proud to be part of. Richard says, “We have bought the new JCB roller to complement our other machinery, we have always done all of our own construction work in house, obviously with the help of a couple of very good local contractors, so it makes sense to own the kit so we can get on with it. The Roller will come in very useful to us in a number of ways, we are putting up some new sheds and buildings over the next few years, plus as you can imagine have lots of pathways and tracks around our Garden Centres, so with this machine we can make sure our pathways and tracks are safe for all of our customers. I really like the strong build of the machine and the visibility of the drums while operating is superb. It’s so easy to use and we will be using Holt JCB to service the machine while they are servicing our other machinery, it’s a good fit for us”. Dan Hunt of Stuart Partners Ltd in Exeter, pictured with his brand new JCB 4CX Pro. “Lovely machine, we swapped it in against our old 3CX, which I thought was good, but this is a step up again. We get involved with lots of different works for Stuart Partners from Farming, Waste and Construction. This machine on the road is so smooth, with the big wheels it just means that wet ground I may have struggled in before, this machine just goes through without thinking about it. I am getting used to the new seat swivel system, it is better but I find myself still looking for the heel lever but the new system means no fowling of the joy stick on the wheel and it locks wherever you want it. Very smooth and reactive on the controls and this time my boss Troy got A/C put in so very happy with it”. Well, what can we say, a great review from Dan and we look forward to working together in the future.
