German rental firm Borchus and Speer has purchased 20 new JCB 8018 mini excavators, which have already been put to work on the redevelopment of an industrial area of Kiel on Germany's Baltic coast.

“The key to our success is based on out focused customer relations,” says Borchus and Speer chief executive Siegfried Speer. “One-on-one liasing between our staff and customers ensures regular repeat business. Customers are confident they can rely on our machines at all times. The new JCB models support this trust.”

Established in Kiel 20 years ago, Borchus and Speer has 20 branches across Germany, a well as outlets in Latvia and Estonia. It has a workforce of 175, and over 700 pieces of equipment for rental.

With an operating weight of 1662 kg, the 8018 is powered by a 14,2 kW diesel (19 hp) engine. It features an auto kickdown two-speed motor and longer tracks for added stability. All 20 of the machines bought by Borchus and Speer are equipped with a quick release coupling, ensuring that the most diverse working attachments can be applied with the minimum of fuss.
