Ludon 220X News

One of the UK’s leading construction firms has bought six new JCB machines including a brand-new Stage V 220X which runs on innovative green HVO fuel.

Purchased by Glasgow-based Luddon Construction, the deal includes JCB 86C-2, JCB 220X and JCB 3CX models which join a fleet of over 30 JCB machines including Teletruk, wheeled loading shovel, compaction, wheeled excavator, backhoe loader models along with JCB tracked excavators ranging from 1.5 through to 22 tonnes.

Supplied by dealer Scot JCB, the new machines have been put to work on two major projects: constructing a new build £8 million 47,500ft² warehouse unit for Tulchan Developments and on site for Caledonian Water Alliance at their new Ibrox Pumping Station - carrying out concrete sub-structure works including drainage, ducting and hard landscape finishes.

We use JCB because of the reliability of the products; they always do exactly what we need. Our operators are really happy with the new machines. One told us that he didn’t think JCB equipment could get any better but with these latest models it has.

“Luddon Construction is committed to reducing its carbon emissions, and given the enormity of this project for Tulchan Developments, the HVO-fuelled JCB 220X seemed the perfect solution.

“It has an extremely comfortable cab and all the controls are very user friendly – it’s a joy to operate. The fact that the engine is HVO ready is great and the auto-stop and auto-idle features ensure maximum fuel efficiency.

“We have enjoyed a great working relationship with Scot JCB since our formation back in 1975. The attention to detail and product knowledge is second to none.”

Founded in 1975 Luddon Construction is one of the largest privately owned construction companies in the UK, employing over 500 people and providing civil engineering, building, surfacing, drainage and small works capabilities.
