Nixon Hire Chooses JCB For Magnificent 107
22 October 2013
Nixon Hire has taken delivery of 107 telehandlers with lift heights ranging from 7 to 17 metres. The order includes 531-70, 533-105, 535-125, 535-140 and 540-170 models. The majority of the machines are already out on hire in construction and materials handling roles on a wide variety of customers’ projects including: civil engineering works, major house building and warehousing projects across the UK.
Developed to meet the EU Stage IIIB/US Tier 4 Interim emissions standards, the JCB Ecomax Tier 4i engine used on the Nixon Hire fleet of JCB Loadalls has no requirement for costly diesel particulate filters (DPFs) or for exhaust after treatment fluids, resulting in low cost, efficient operation for customers. The result is up to 7% improved fuel economy and 15% more torque.
The machine specifications are tailored exactly to the needs of Nixon Hire and its customer base. These latest additions are equipped with air-conditioned cabs - a move which has proved hugely popular with customers.
Nixon Hire Managing Director, Graham Nixon said; “We choose to work with JCB as it’s important for us work with leading industry brands which our customers know and trust. JCB telehandlers appeal as they are reliable, the serviceable parts are readily available and they are popular with our customers. They are high quality, robust telehandlers which include modern technology and the latest health and safety features."
“JCB supplies us with the products we require at a competitive price and has been the preferred supplier for Nixon Hire telehandlers since 2006. We continue to have an excellent relationship with our local dealer Scot JCB and its extensive depot coverage compliments our own depot network very well.”
