Hampshire Plant & Access makes further fleet investments in JCB


Hampshire Plant & Access (HPA) part of the AFI group of companies has purchased over £500k of JCB machines in the latest boost to their fleet.

Hampshire Plant & Access (HPA)is investing £1 million in 2018 to further update and expand its plant and powered access hire fleet.  Their latest investment includes several excavators and site dumpers from Greenshields JCB. These include:

  • Two JCB 3 ton dumpers
  • One JCB 3 ton rota dumper
  • Two JCB 9 ton dumpers
  • Six JCB excavators, ranging from the 8026 micro-excavator through to the JCB 131 14 ton machine.

James Atley General Manager – Sales at Greenshields JCB said:

“Greenshields JCB has been supporting Hampshire Plant & Access (HPA) for a number of years, providing them with a range of JCB machinery, and it is the recent JCB Compact Excavator and Site Dumper business of which we are most proud.  Since 2016, we have supplied HPA with over 50 compact excavators and site dumpers from 1T to 9T, totalling over £1,000,000.”

HPA have purchased over £500k of JCB machines from Greenshields so far in 2018. In addition to the compact excavators and site dumpers, two JS 131 tracked excavators have also been added to their fleet. Designed specifically for the rental sector, the 13 tonne JS 131, is the only excavator in this weight category that doesn’t require DPF, SCR or AdBlue thanks to its 55kW JCB Ecomax engine. It is robustly designed to withstand the treatment that rental machines can be subjected to on-site, yet delivers excellent productivity, comfort and safety.

The JCB machines have been supplied from Greenshields JCB HQ in Farnham, Surrey.  Other machines supplied this year include the JCB 8008, JCB 8026, JCB 57C and JCB 86C from the Compact Excavator Range, plus JCB 1T and JCB 9T site dumpers.
