30 Case excavators for Morris Leslie (published in the Construction Index Dec 2014)

Morris Leslie Plant Hire has taken delivery of 10 Case 21-tonne excavators, in addition to 20 of the 13-tonners it took earlier in the year.

Morris Leslie Plant Hire now has 30 new Case crawler excavators in the 13- to 21-tonne class.

The company took delivery of 20 of Case’s CX130C machines earlier in the year. These performed well enough for bosses to return to Case for the larger CX210C model.

“We see Case as an important partner as we continue to expand and renew our fleet,” said group operations director Graham Ogilvie.

Tracked excavators in the 13-tonne to 21-tonne range form the backbone of the UK plant hire fleet, and Morris Leslie expects its new Case machines to be heavily used.

“There is currently strong demand in all sectors, and we expect these machines will be working mainly in the civil engineering, house-building and commercial building sectors”, said Mr Ogilvie.

“Case has an excellent reputation in the market with a well-regarded product,” he added. “The C series excavators are highly rated by operators and it is of paramount importance to us that the machines are well-received by site operatives.”
