Lynch’s new Takeuchi minis fitted with GKD kit

Machine guidance manufacturer, GKD Technologies has been supplying nationwide plant hire specialists L Lynch Plant Hire & Haulage for over 3.5 years in what has been a successful partnership providing Lynch with height and slew restrictor systems for the company’s modern fleet. Lynch has recently expanded its reliable hire fleet and has welcomed five new Takeuchi TB250-2 mini-excavators. The machines have all been equipped with GKD Technologies 2RCi height, slew and load rated capacity indicators.

Fitted with GKD 2RCi Height & Slew limiters, these excavators meet Highways England’s safety standards for Plant Machinery operating near live traffic lanes. Additionally, the Magenta Beacon offers further visible assurance that the system is in full operation. The 2RCi, in addition to height and slew limiters, has the option of ‘envelope control’, which is the facility for parallel or multi-point virtual walls, combined with integrated height control. This provides the operator with the ability to initiate full envelope control, ensuring that the machine continues to operate safely whether in lifting or excavation modes.

The new Lynch Takeuchi mini-excavators are already out on hire on the M1 improvement project, carrying out essential motorway upgrades.
