Compact Power makes a point to offer brand names of construction and landscaping equipment that hold a high reputation for quality and reliability.
Our reliance on the equipment manufacturer is evident by their logos and branded colors remaining on each and every piece of equipment in the Compact Power fleet.
In the realm of compact excavators, there is a new member to the team for 2015. The JCB 8018 (1.5-ton class) and 8029 (3-ton class) mini excavators are best in class additions to the Compact Power fleet.
JCB, named for its founder Joseph Cyril Bamford, is a British equipment manufacturer with locations throughout the world, including its North American headquarters in Savannah, GA.
Though new to the Compact Power family of equipment, JCB has a long, successful 70-year history marked by innovation and continuous growth. In a lot of ways, JCB revolutionized the heavy equipment industry by inventing the backhoe in 1953. Today in its home country of England, the term “JCB” is equivalent to “Kleenex” or “Xerox” when it comes to equipment.
JCB produces high quality machinery, small to large in a wide range of equipment categories. Compact Power currently offers select JCB compact excavator models, ideally suited for property improvement and landscaping projects like tree planting, irrigation installation or utility repairs.
The JCB 8018 and 8029 models are versatile pieces of equipment offering among the highest reach heights and deepest dig depths in their respective compact excavator size classes.
JCB not only manufactures equipment, but also likes to have fun showing off its innovative features. The company has a traveling performance show called the “Dancing Diggers”. These entertaining machines have performed for the Queen of England, the President of the United States and hundreds of thousands of spectators across the globe. We may even be lucky enough to feature them at one of our Home Depot contractor days later this year.
The history, quality, reliability and sustainability of JCB equipment are all reasons why Compact Power Equipment Rental is excited to have the signature JCB brand as part of our fleet.
