TOM GRANT TAKES FIRST STAGE V JCB 150X TAB EXCAVATOR
The first Stage V JCB 150X tracked excavator with triple-articulated boom sold anywhere in the UK has been bought by a Scottish plant hirer.
Purchased by Ayrshire-based Tom Grant Plant, the high-specification JCB Stage V 150X HD TAB excavator has also been fitted with a Kinshofer Nox TRF14 tilt-rotator for enhanced productivity and versatility across a range of jobs.
Owner Tom Grant, 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.”
Supplied by dealer Scot JCB, the JCB 150X boasts a Stage V, 4.8-litre JCB DieselMax 448 engine, delivering the same 81kW (108hp) power output, but with 516Nm of torque, a rise of 135Nm from the previous model.
