Scot JCB has supplied Eagle Hire with a brand-new fleet of JCB machinery ranging from JCB dumpsters to JCB 86C-2 midi excavators, in a deal worth £4million.

Eagle Hire’s order of 127 JCB machines, all equipped with the latest stage V engines, marks a milestone in their journey. Eagle Hire Sales Director, Iain MacDonald (pictured right) said: “We chose to invest with Scot JCB as it not only allowed us to tap into a range of machinery, we didn’t previously have access to, but they are known for their transparency and unwavering commitment to putting the customer first, values that resonate very deeply with us.”

Among the new fleet of mini and midi excavators, Eagle Hire has also added JCB 6 Tonne Dumpers, JCB CT160-80 and CT260-120 tandem rollers.  John Monaghan, Plant Director added: “The JCB products have a great reputation, they are good machines and I’m sure they will help us to keep our business growing, they are already starting to go out to customers and the feedback has been positive so far.”  

Iain Bryant, Joint Managing Director Scot JCB echoed the enthusiasm, stating, “Working with Eagle Hire is very important to Scot JCB, we see this as a start of a long-lasting relationship, and we look forward to working with them over the coming years as we both build and grow our businesses.”

Established in 1990, Eagle Hire serves utility contractors, house builders, ground working contractors, shop-fitting and general contractors in Scotland, offering an extensive range of equipment tailored to diverse applications.

Scot JCB, meanwhile, sells and services JCB equipment across Scotland and the North of England, operating from a network of 17 depots. It is the largest JCB distributor in the UK.
