Sam Marles

adds more


Sam Marles, proprietor of Sam

Marles Plant Hire based at

Woodbury Salterton near Exeter

orders a new ECR25D zero

swing excavator and an ECR88D

reduced swing excavator from

Volvo for his hire and contracting


Since setting up his plant

and contracting business ten

years ago, owner Sam Mar-

les has enjoyed the last two of

them operating a Volvo EC R28 zero

swing excavator.

“The majority of our work is

contracting to Western Power

Distribution which means we

have to be ready to react to

demand 24 hours a day, seven

days a week and that’s just not

possible unless you have good

machine reliability and sound

back up from the local dealer.

“I’ve been impressed with the

support from Plant & Engineering

Services which helped me decide

to opt for the Volvo brand once


says Sam, explaining his reason for

investing more with Volvo.

The new ECR25D replaces his two

year old ECR28 whilst at the same

time he has invested in the larger 8.8

tonne ECR88D.

The ECR25D has had optional

hose rupture valves fitted to both

the boom and dipper arm cylinders

for handling electricity poles whilst

the ECR88D has been equipped with

an Engcon Tiltrotator making the

machine highly productive and flex-

ible on site.
