The first Stage V-compliant JCB 150X tracked excavator with triple-articulated boom in the UK has been bought by a Scotland-based equipment rental company.

Ayrshire-based Tom Grant Plant, which as established in 1997 and provides construction and industrial equipment and transport hire services across Glasgow and Ayrshire, added the JCB 150X HD excavator with a two-piece boom expand its equipment range.

The new 15-tonne machine, which was supplied by dealer Scot JCB, features a 4.8-litre, 81kW JCB DieselMax 448 engine that provides 516Nm of torque.

The rental company’s model has also been fitted with a Kinshofer Nox TRF14 tilt-rotator, to allow operators to carry out a wider range of applications and improve productivity. 

Tom Grant, owner of Tom Grant Plant, said, “We had a JCB 150X HD on demonstration, and the operator and I were both very impressed with its performance. The extra stability and digging capability that comes with this big and powerful machine is second to none.”

“We’re always looking to offer our customers something extra in order to help them work as safely and efficiently as possible and the 150X HD with the TAB front end and Kinshofer Nox tilt-rotator is a great combination.”
