When Liam Schofield, a digger operator for Collins Earthworks, was told he could specify attachments for his Volvo EWR170E, he chose an Engcon tiltrotator with EC-Oil – despite a company policy previously favouring a competitor’s product.
Collins Earthworks had not operated an Engcon tiltrotator before Liam requested it, so were a little sceptical and encouraged him to use the standard company equipment. But Liam stuck to his guns, as he knew the advantages of the EC-Oil system. He comments: “I knew what the Engcon kit is capable of, and knew it would save me time and offer me great control. The system promoted by Collins’ current supplier just couldn’t match its performance. I’m glad I persevered – the Engcon is a great bit of kit.”
Collins Earthworks Ltd has been managing earthmoving projects for over 15 years. Based in the Midlands, they are constantly making investments in their fleet, equipment and staff. Keeping machine down time to a minimum, maximising productivity and efficiency, Collins prides itself on being able to supply the best machinery and workforce for the job, when and where they’re needed.
Liam adds: “I was familiar with Engcon and I was keen to use their kit. I know many owner operators who use them and really rate them. EC-Oil system is a great time saver – I can change attachments without getting out of the cab, which means it’s safer too. I do a fair amount of motorway and road work, where traffic is a constant risk. So the fact that I can stay in my cab rather than venture out onto the highway is a major benefit – some drivers come very close to us on the motorway! And it also means I don’t have to keep putting all my high-vis stuff back on every time I want to change attachments.”
