Supplied by dealer Gunn JCB, the longstanding customer has ordered over 100 JCB machines in total, including the site dumpers ranging from 1-9 tonnes and 1.5, 5 and 8-tonne compact excavators.

WHC Hire Services Owner James Clutterbuck said: “We choose JCB for the product quality and because the service from Gunn JCB is fantastic. We always ensure we can offer our customers the latest innovations and JCB continually works with customers like ourselves to enhance its models for the arduous rental market.

“We’ve switched to JCB now it offers site dumpers because of the benefits of buying from JCB. We can source the bulk of our equipment from one dealer which is 100% committed to its product and from which the service is second to none.

“The JCB site dumper range itself is brand new, safe and excels in the field. It’s easy to use, efficient and powerful – everything you would want in a hire machine.”
