Flannery Plant Hire (Flannery), one of the largest providers of operated and self-drive plant in the UK, has signed an exclusive deal with Finning UK & Ireland at this year's Plantworx exhibition (11th-13th June) to purchase 230 new Cat® machines as part of its fleet refurbishment programme.
Signed by Patrick Flannery Senior, the deal is the biggest single order for Finning in 2019 and will bring the average age of the Flannery fleet to an impressive 1.8 years.
The company’s investment totals over £30 million and sees Flannery take delivery of the UK’s first Cat D6XE next-generation dozer; Caterpillar’s ground-breaking new high-drive, electric drive transmission machine. The deal includes units from the Next Gen Hex range of excavators, including Cat 308 minis, Cat 315 and Cat 325 excavators with zero tail swing. The line up also includes the new Cat 730 articulated dump trucks fitted with the Caterpillar Production Measurement (CPM) system alongside a broad range of other Caterpillar machines.
