Morris Leslie Plant Hire is further expanding its fleet with an order of new JCB equipment worth GBP87.5 million (USD106.6 million).

The Perth-based company, which operates nationally, is adding a range of machines including Loadall telescopic handlers.

Manufactured at JCB’s factories in Rocester and Cheadle, Staffordshire, the machines are powered by the latest Stage V engines which deliver low emissions.

They are also fitted with JCB LiveLink telematics system which enables Morris Leslie and its rental customers to monitor the safety, productivity and emissions of the machines.

The order will be supplied by Scot JCB to Morris Leslie’s 14 nationwide depots this year.

“We are delighted to have agreed our largest-ever order with our long-term partner JCB to support our 2023 growth plans and by the end of the year, our entire JCB fleet will be operating with the latest Stage V engines,” says Morris Leslie Plant Hire group chairman Morris Leslie.

“Scot JCB and other JCB dealers around the UK continue to provide first-class service to our depots and our customers.”

JCB sales managing director Marco Bersellini says the company is proud to have a long-standing partnership with Morris Leslie Plant Hire.

“This deal demonstrates confidence in the construction market and confirms that JCB has exactly the right products to meet the needs of hirers and end-users,” says Bersellini.
