WHC Hire Services Limited, a leading plant and tool hire company, is continuing to satisfy customer demand by investing in five new JCB 140X models and the latest 245XR tracked excavator.

A firm favourite with WHC Hire customers, the X series provides superior performance for any site, from groundworkers, civil engineers, builders and contractors.

Launched last year, the JCB 245XR tracked excavator is the latest addition to the highly acclaimed X series. The 22-26 tonne excavator is powered by the latest efficient Stage V engines and boasts a reduced slewing radius without compromising cab space or performance to offer exceptional operator comfort, stability, productivity, efficiency and serviceability levels.

James Clutterbuck, Managing Director of WHC Hire Services, has been a fan of the X series since the launch back in 2019 and is committed to offering his customers the very best machinery:

“The X series has been a game changer for JCB. The build quality, performance and ease of service have been a perfect match for the requirements of our busy customers. It’s great to see UK engineering leading the way in the industry.

When JCB first launched the X series, it immediately became a massive hit with our customers. Four years after our first purchase, I had no hesitation in reinvesting in the new stage V models and adding the 245XR into our fleet.”

The Stage V 14T X Series excavators offer unmatched ease of use and control, with Japanese hydraulics that delivers pinpoint accuracy and auto-stop starting to maximise fuel efficiency.

WHC Hire specialises in supplying plant equipment to a range of customers, including major companies like highway agencies, construction and building companies, small family businesses and homeowners. In the last 25 years, the company has made a sizable investment in JCB machinery to meet the needs of its expanding customer base.
