UK-based rental company Explore Plant and Transport Solutions has placed a £6 million order for more than 100 JCB machines.

The order includes the Worksop-headquartered company’s first delivery of JCB’s midi and X Series excavators, as well as a number of JCB Loadall telescopic handlers and site dumpers.

Warren Wilkinson, operations director, Explore Plant and Transport Solutions, said, “A key priority for construction sites is the effective management and efficiency of operations, making it important that all equipment supplied for hire, meets the rigorous needs of our customers.

“Having trialled the equipment on site, we were confident that JCB’s machinery was robust and well-built to exceed those expectations. The standout features of the X Series model in particular are power and performance.

“In addition, the initial trial showed that JCB machinery offered the operator increased comfort, which is key when operating the equipment on site for sustained periods of time.

“As we look to update our current range of plant hire assets, and expand into more sustainable alternatives for our customers, we are especially excited for the zero emissions products that JCB is developing.”
