Signed, sealed & delivered

The first Hyundai HX140 L Tracked Excavator to be signed, sealed & delivered in the UK was sold by Taylor & Braithwaite Ltd in April and received by Mayson Bros Ltd, Egremont. The machine was swiftly put to work on the flood defence project in Glenridding, Lake District – an area devastated by Storm Desmond last year.

The 14-tonne machine provides up to ten per cent better fuel economy and like other models in the HX series, the Hyundai HX140 L excavator comes packed with high-end features.

The new machine is helping support Mayson Bros with the flood repair work that they are undertaking in conjunction with the Environment Agency. Specifically, taking out the old wall in the village of Glenridding and creating a floodwall.
