A hat trick of Hyundai HX140 excavators for Scotland's Jarvie Plant Group
Scottish hire business Jarvie Plant Group has sent all three of its recently purchased Hyundai 14tonne HX140 crawler excavators out on job sites.
The machines went straight out on hire and are working on various civil engineering projects across Scotland.
Jarvie Plant has 1,750 machines in its hire fleet ranging from Stihl saws, to dumpers, rollers and excavators up to 22tonnes. Within the company’s fleet are 10 Hyundai machines which include Hyundai fork-trucks, a R125LCR-9A, an R210LC-9A and the largest excavator in its fleet – the R220LC-9A.
Jarvie Plant has invested more than €840,000 in the Hyundai brand, according to David Jarvie, Jarvie managing director.
“The Hyundai All-Around View Monitoring system on the HX140 gives the operators a 360° virtual operating view and the detection system senses and warns the operator when objects come within 5m of the machine,” said Jarvie. “It’s also user friendly and is integrated within the machine's control monitor.”
