Ridgway Invest in 26 high-specification JCB Excavators

To celebrate over half a century of links with JCB, we have made a huge investment in our fleet of excavators.

This investment includes 26 high specification excavators in a deal worth over £2.5 million. The models bought include a JCB Hydradig, JS131 and JS220 tracked excavators, JS145W, JS160W and JS200W wheeled excavators and 8 ton zero tail-swing 85Z-1 midi excavators. They have all been supplied by dealer Gunn JCB.

Managing Director, Stuart Jones said:We have a long and proud history with JCB and Ridgway Rentals has a strong commitment to supporting British business. The service and support we receive from Gunn JCB is also a key factor in our decision to choose JCB”.

“This investment sees us strengthen our excavator fleet with high spec JCB models which are always well built and provide good value. Many of the new excavators do not require ad blue and the JCB LiveLink system is extremely useful – enabling us to accurately monitor our fleet’s performance and schedule servicing efficiently.

“The new JCB models look great and are fitted with a range of options including LED lights, durable paintwork and sun visors and come with a series of attachments including hammers, shears and tilt rotators – meaning these machines are well-equipped for the full range of industries we serve.”

Over 50 Years with JCB

Founded by the late Bob Jones in 1961, Ridgway Rentals originally traded as RAJ Mechanisations Ltd. as a dealer for JCB machines. Bob forged a strong relationship with JCB founder Joseph Cyril Bamford CBE, who personally delivered one of the first-ever JCB 7 crawler excavators in 1964.

Led by Tim Jones, Bob’s son, the company changed course in 1977 to become a plant hirer and today remains one of JCB’s longest-standing customers, evolving into a successful nationwide rental company, which remains family-owned and run by Tim’s sons, Stuart and Rob – the 3rd generation of Jones leadership at the helm.

This new investment means for a limited time, we can offer brand new JCB Excavators at incredible rates, especially on long term contract hire
