JCB Celebrate 500,000 Backhoe Loader

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Westgate Holdings Ltd & Arnold Plant Hire Ltd congratulate JCB on their production of the 500,000th Backhoe Loader.

The first backhoe rolled off the production line in Rocester, Staffordshire in 1953.

In the first full year of production in 1954 just 35 of the machines were built and it took more than 20 years for the first 50,000 to be made. Today one JCB backhoe loader rolls off the company’s production lines every three minutes.

H&C Plant Hire Ltd and Ash Hire & Sales Ltd, both part of the Westgate Group have supported and purchased the JCB 2cx and 3cx units for the last 30 years and are proud to be associated with this original construction product which is still evolving and reinventing itself in this now very competitive market place.

Westgate Group hire out both JCB 2cx and 3cx Backhoe loaders short term or long term hire with or without operators along with hydraulic breakers, compactors and augers.
