Claymore Homes snaps up Bobcat telehandlers
Claymore Homes Ltd has taken delivery of six new Bobcat T40.180SLP 18 metre telehandlers, supplied by Balgownie Ltd, the local authorised Bobcat dealer.
Established in 2007, the independent property development company is based in Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire.
John Smith, managing director of Claymore Homes, said: “Balgownie was able to offer us the most competitive package on the market and we confirmed this with a test drive and a demonstration period showing the new Bobcat machines provide great value for money. I have been very impressed with the performance of the new Bobcat telehandlers, which we use in every part of the business and we receive excellent back-up from Balgownie to ensure we get the maximum uptime.”
As with all new Bobcat telehandlers, the T40.180SLP telehandlers offer a three-year warranty (or 3000 hours) on each machine as standard from the factory, extendable as an option to five years and 5000 hours.
John Smith added: “We have chosen to take up the option of extending the warranty to 5 years and 5000 hours, allowing us to concentrate on building our high quality homes. The new Bobcat telehandlers have been an excellent addition to our fleet and are working hard across several of our current developments, including those at Cruden Bay, Peterhead and St Combs.
“We believe the key to our success is offering our customers a wide range of homes, which are tailor-made to suit individual requirements, lifestyle and budget. No two homes are the same. The Claymore custom design service places the customer at the heart of the process. From finishings and room layouts for first time buyers to designing a new home from scratch for the premium customer.”
The T40.180SLP is the top-of-the-range model in the Bobcat range of 12 rigid frame telehandler models for construction/rental markets covering maximum lifting capacities between 2.6 and 4.3 tonne with lifting heights from 6 to 18 m. Bobcat telehandlers incorporate several standard features such as an automatic parking brake with an intuitive operation similar to those used in the automotive industry, providing greater safety and control.
The ECO fuel saving system is actuated simply by pressing a button on the dashboard and maintains optimum hydraulic performance without using the engine’s full power, adjusting the main machine features to produce a balance between top performance and providing the best performance/fuel consumption ratio. Construction companies and rental customers appreciate this feature for the additional fuel savings it provides, combined with the excellent lifting capacities on Bobcat telehandlers.
