Jewson has signed a deal with JCB for 900 machines, in one of the largest orders this year for the construction equipment manufacturer.
Worth more than £12 million, this is the most substantial order placed by Tool Hire – Jewson’s rental division – since it began sourcing from JCB two decades ago.
A highlight of the order is the inclusion of 19C-1 E electric mini excavators and 1TE electric site dumpers. These electric models operate quieter, emit zero emissions at the point of use, and their performance is comparable to their diesel counterparts. Notably, they can operate for a typical full day on a single charge.
The order also comprises JCB 8008 micro excavators, JCB 16C-1 mini excavators, 1T site dumpers, and VMT160-80 vibratory tandem rollers. The fleet will be supplied through JCB dealer, Gunn JCB.
