UKs first Cat 315 GC diggers go to Ashbrook

Finning UK & Ireland has supplied plant, access equipment and tractor hire company Ashbrook with seven new Cat 315 GC excavators, marking the first delivery of this machine in the UK. After the delivery on April 26 2021, customer demand meant they were put straight to work, offering longer maintenance intervals than previous models, fuel-saving features and a compact radius design.

Ashbrook has had a strong relationship with Finning for many years — James Ashbrook, Managing Director and Neil Baxter, Sales Manager at Finning struck up an excellent working relationship back in 2006, when the two companies started doing business. In 2019, Finning delivered its 1,000th new machine to Ashbrook, a number that has since risen to over 1,200.

The latest arrivals are seven Cat 315 GC excavators, one of the only excavators on the market to offer a full-size cab on a compact radius machine, and 10 of the 313 GC hydraulic excavator model. The machines were put to work on customer sites quickly after delivery and Ashbrook plans to add more to its fleet by the end of June.

The Cat 315 GC is equipped with an EU Stage 5 engine and boasts smaller cab pillars, larger windows and a wider skylight hatch to give users 60% greater visibility. Read more about the Cat 315 GC here.
