Takeuchi TB216 excavators for SSE

National Energy company SSE have taken delivery of another 30 Takeuchi TB216 Excavators from Clive Barford Ltd (CBL). This takes the total number of the Japanese built 1.5 tonners to over 60 in the last two years.

The Takeuchi TB216 was operationally evaluated and extensively tested by SSE prior to any purchases.  It was found to meet the high specification requirement and operational needs in terms of reliability, total cost of ownership, power/torque output, together with benefits to operator comfort/ergonomics, including safety. SSE worked closely with Simon Perkis, Area Salesman at CBL’s Thatcham depot to produce a machine to the exact specification required for their network.

The TB216 excavator has extendable undercarriage from 980mm to 1300mm and benefits from a reliable, high power Yanmar engine together with the Takeuchi Security System as standard.

Rob Pope, National Plant Manager at SSE, commented, ‘CBL have shown that the Takeuchi TB216 meets and exceeds our operational specification. The low cost of ownership is excellent compared to its competition and our operators continue to praise the machines on many fronts. We have been supported very well by Simon Perkis and the team at CBL.’

Richard Sturgess, Sales Director at CBL, commented, ‘Having been involved in the evaluation process, I am delighted that all the hard work put in by Simon Perkis and the CBL team has paid off and very grateful for the open minded, forward thinking from Rob Pope and the Plant team at SSE.  The attributes of these fantastic Takeuchis are well known to us at CBL as we see them working in the toughest professional applications daily.  It is very gratifying to see what we can offer a customer like SSE who uses machines to their full potential.’
