Further Additions To Large Excavator Fleet Arrives At WHC Hire

Since the release of the X series back in 2019, WHC Hire has purchased several large excavators from JCB to further enhance its fleet. With over 400 pieces of plant available across three depots, the demand for large excavators continues. WHC Hire is proud to announce the addition of a brand new JCB 220X Series Stage V into the fleet.


In 2022 alone, WHC has invested in 5 x 140X’s, 1x 245XR and now welcoming an additional 220X. This upgraded 220X stage V joins our existing 20T units, which we received prior to the pandemic back in 2019. This investment is part of our continued efforts to keep our whole fleet low hours and as up-to-date as possible.


The latest JCB 220X Series joins our highly efficient arsenal of equipment, bringing with it the latest and most powerful advanced technologies in earthmoving equipment. This new large excavator has been tested in the most extreme conditions to ensure its reliability, productivity, efficiency and, most importantly, safety. It includes JCB’s industry-leading cabin design “CommandPlus”, delivering lower noise levels of 67cB (A) and HVAC with 11 vents.


This advanced excavator is the most powerful of its kind. Using a Japanese hydraulic system, the 220X delivers a 15200 kgf bucket tear out. This excavator is the perfect partner for large excavation projects and sports JCB’s most advanced stage V diesel engine. Resulting in lower emissions and up 15% more fuel efficiency compared to tier 4 models.


MD James Clutterbuck said, “when we first introduced the 220x into our fleet back in 2019 it was a huge success for us and our clients. Since then, we have received many more units from within the X series range that continues to lead the way in the large excavator field. This new investment is part of our continuous commitment to our customers. To provide world-class equipment, in perfect working condition, always at low hours. We take great pride and dedication in our equipment and that’s whys we chose to add another 220X to our fleet. We are excited to see it out there in the field doing what it does best.”


WHC Hire Services would also like to take the time to thank its friends at Gunn JCB, who supplied and delivered our new investment.
