Terex gets Lynched

Terex for Lynch

A resurgent UK equipment rental market and high utilisation rates prompt leading British equipment hire company L. Lynch Plant Hire and Haulage to add a further six TA300 articulated haulers to its 30-strong fleet of Terex Trucks.

As part of its expansion and modernization program, British equipment rental company L. Lynch Plant Hire and Haulage has added a further six Terex Trucks TA300 articulated haulers to its growing fleet of 30 tonne machines.

The haulers, which entered service in early June, are all hired out for at least the next year, in a sign of the shortage of high quality construction equipment in the UK’s recovering building industry. The six new machines come hot on the heels of a further 25 haulers purchased by Lynch Plant Hire in recent months – also 30 tonne TA300 models from Terex Trucks.

“We’ve seen rapid growth in our business over the last four years; a feat we’ve achieved by focusing on the needs of customers and by being able to supply and support them with modern, quality equipment,” says company director Merrill Lynch, who manages the equipment fleet at Lynch. “This has attracted some of the largest contractors in the country to us, with our machines working on prominent construction projects such as Crossrail in London. But all customers, quite rightly, demand maximum fuel efficiency and uptime from their equipment – that’s why Terex Trucks’ service and support network played such an important element in our decision to stick with them.”

The haulers have been specified with top hinged tailgates, low-ground pressure floatation tyres and fitted with an onboard telematics system from Enigma.

“We looked at other manufacturers before taking the decision to buy these machines,” concludes Merrill Lynch, son of Managing Director Liam Lynch. “But our operators like the comfort and smoothness of the TA300, while customers like the fuel economy of the new Tier-compliant engines and Terex’s rapid onsite support. These factors, combined with a very good longstanding working relationship with our dealer TDL Equipment mean Terex Trucks continues to provide the optimal total sales and support package.”
