First Bobcat E16 Limited
Edition Excavator in UK
Burns Plant Services (BPS), based at Goxhill in
North Lincolnshire, has purchased the UK’s first
25
th Anniversary Limited Edition E16 1.6 tonne
excavator as part of an order for new Bobcat
compact excavators supplied by AMS Bobcat,
the Authorised Dealer for Lincolnshire and East
Yorkshire.
Jarrod Burns, Owner of BPS, said: “I’m
delighted to be the owner of the first Limited
Edition E16 compact excavator in the UK and
Ireland.”
Bobcat offers a number of options on the
Limited Edition E16 excavator and BPS has chosen a unit with the new suspension seat, tie down (4), blade extension
rubber pad and auxiliary dipper stick hydraulic line options. Powered by the 3-cylinder 9.9 kW Kubota D722 engine, the
Limited Edition version of the E16 model also incorporates as standard a new floormat and internal liner, whilst offering
the largest foot space in this class of compact excavator.
Dependable Performance for the Hire Industry
As well as the E16, BPS has also bought new Bobcat E26 and E10 models for the company’s fleet. Jarrod Burns
continued: “I started my business in early 2008 with a range of new Bobcat excavators. The Bobcat machines have
performed excellently throughout and I’ve always had great feedback from my customers.”

Raymond Brown takes first
Bell loaders
The minerals and recycling arm of Raymond Brown
Group has taken delivery of three Bell wheeled
loaders following a successful demo.
The company already runs a fleet of four Bell
B30D ADTs at its quarries in Dorset and Hampshire,
but this is the first time it has purchased loaders
from the South African manufacturer.
Traditionally a user of Cat and Volvo loaders, the company has bought three Bell L2106E loaders, which will be used in
a variety of applications.
Nick Moth, group plant manager for Raymond Brown, said: “Talking to people in the industry, I was hearing very
positive things about Bell loaders, and I thought we should have a look at them.
And, since the demos, we’ve had very positive feedback from operators and site managers”
Moth said that the John Deere-built Bell wheeled loaders indicated some “favourable” fuel consumption figures
during the initial trials – and that Bell’s approach to after-sales was also a major factor in his purchasing decision.
Fuel consumption is key,” he said. “And the service and support we’ve had from Bell over the years has been good.
There’s a lot of trust built up between our two companies – we have a very strong working relationship.”
Woollaston said: “Our loaders have many benefits, not least the fact that they offer the highest ‘as-standard’
specification on the market. But the QuadCool system genuinely means they stand head and shoulders above the
competition, particularly in applications where there is a lot of dust or debris.
In short, it stops the engine over-heating, it reduces downtime significantly, and all of our customers have been
surprised at how infrequently they need to clean it out.
