Irish rental company Diggers Direct has taken delivery of 10 JCB 540-180 Hi Viz telehandlers, the first in the country.
The 18 metre/4,000kg telescopic handler can lift 2,500kg at full height, and offers a horizontal reach of 13.5 metres. The 540-180 has an overall width of 2.35 metres and an overall length of 6.26 metres, allowing two machines to be transported on a single open or curtain sided truck. The order was supplied by local dealer ECI JCB.
Director Ken Dillon said: "JCB telehandlers are the best machines for our customers' needs and retain excellent resale values, so they are the perfect machines for us. The lift performance and visibility on the new Hi Viz machines is excellent and they are already busy on projects for our customers."
Based in Dublin, the new delivery joins Diggers Direct's fleet that includes telehandlers, excavators, loaders and rollers.
