Cumbria-based Hyundai dealer Taylor & Braithwaite has sold the very first Hyundai R125LCR-9A in the UK to Stephen Smith Plant Hire, also based in Cumbria.
One man and his digger!
Stephen Smith is a ‘one man one machine operator’ who works all-around the Cumbrian region on building projects which include new-build housing developments. The brand new machine is currently being put to work on a small building project in the village of Seascale on the Irish Sea coast of the region.
Excellent customer service.
Stephen Smith said, “I have had two other machines from Taylor & Braithwaite (Caterpillar and Case) and I could not fault their customer service, which is why when I was looking to replace my old machine T&B was my first port of call. I saw the specification on the new Hyundai machine and was very impressed – the machine was not yet in the UK so I had to wait almost 12-months to get one!”
Short tail swing makes machine easy to maneuver.
Stephen continued, “I did consider the R145LCR-9A (14.5 tonne) but it was a bit too big for what I wanted so I decided to hold out for the smaller 12.5 tonne machine. The R125 machine is perfect for working on smaller sites where it’s difficult to maneuver. The short radius swung it for me, no pun intended!”
“I am chuffed to bits with my new machine and every day working on it is a pleasure. I would like to thank T&B too for their continued support – a top notch local company.” Concluded Stephen.
Taylor & Braithwaite’s sales director, Ian Burton said, “We are delighted to continue our long term working relationship with Stephen and we’re very pleased with the new Hyundai R125LCR-9A as it fills a gap in the Hyundai range, it is a perfect machine for building site/ groundworks and have high hopes for this machine. It is very important to our business ethos that we consistently look after our customer’s however small or large their machine fleets are. I hope Stephen enjoys operating his new machine and brings him a good return on his investment.”
