After sales support cliches the deal for Volvo

Several determining factors including a sound after sales support have led Hertfordshire based utilities specialist B Mosley Groundworks and Plant Hire Ltd to purchase three new Volvo EC15B XR mini excavators.

Incorporated 11 years ago the company started off in general groundworks with a single two tonne Pel Job mini excavator from its base in Wembley and now operates toady from its headquarters located at Todds Green, Stevenage. It quickly diversified its activities, specialising in utility contracting and trenchless technology with the installation and maintenance of utility networks.

The family business run by brothers and co directors Ben and Luke Mosley, has since gained a sound reputation for specialist contracting leading specifically for the need to acquire three mini excavators for work with an existing client. “We rigorously explored the mini excavator market before making our choice,” explained Commercial Director Luke Mosley. “But based on our experience with the original machine and the Volvo minis we have cross hired recently plus Volvo’s after sales support network we decided to opt for the three EC15B’s.”

Volvo compact excavators are designed for tough, rugged applications whilst at the same time delivering impressive levels of performance and technological advances. This includes a variable flow power control hydraulic system for precise control under all load conditions and safety features such as Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS), Tip Over Protection Structure (TOPS) and Falling Objects protection Structure (FOPS) contribute to outstanding operator safety.

All components and service points are within easy reach on the EC15BXR. For instance, the Volvo patented tilting counterweight allows easy access to the engine. The one-piece cab floor makes it easy to reach the spool valves while the hoses supplying the boom are fitted externally along the boom, keeping all connections within easy reach. All three machines complete with plant trailers delivered to Mosley have been supplied with Volvo HP100 hydraulic breakers and a full range of buckets.

Based just outside Stevenage, Mosley specialises in underground installation solutions. Using the latest trenchless technology, the company is involved in new pipe installation, pipe renewals and repairs for both the domestic and utility sectors countrywide.
