L. Lynch Plant Hire is an experienced company that offers both on and off-highway vehicle rental, it has now specified over 90 new vehicles with Edbro cylinders in the last twelve months. Abba Commercials has been the supplier for most of these vehicles and was happy to support the recommendation to use Edbro products due to the company’s reputation for ‘fit-and-forget’ reliability and quality.
The rapidly expanding L. Lynch Plant Hire fleet includes cranes, diggers, grab lorries and aggregate delivery trucks. The company regularly invests in new plant to ensure that its UK vehicle portfolio remains one of the most comprehensive, reliable and efficient available. Aware of the harsh operating conditions that its vehicles will be subjected to, the company specifies only the most reliable components.
Raj Nawag, Senior Operating Manager for L. Lynch, comments: “Our customers are often working to tight deadlines. They can’t afford to lose even a day due to a failure on one of our vehicles; this is why we keep our fleet modern, with regular investment. It also means that we are sure to specify components that can be trusted to survive. In the last year we have specified over 90 Edbro tipping cylinders as in our opinion they deliver the quality and reliability that we need.”
For the standard aggregate delivery trucks; Edbro has delivered its tried and tested CX15 cylinder. The CX series features a fully integrated ram and tank design which is ideally suited to rigid trucks and offers weight savings of up to 230 kg per tip on standard competitor products. It features an extremely quick tipping action that offers a nominal lift capacity of 32 tonnes. Its weight saving and speed qualities ensures that operators can increase their pay-load as well as the number of ‘tips-per-day’.
L. Lynch also stocks grab lorries which offer self-loading capabilities. Due to the location of the grabber, tipping cylinders for these vehicles need to be located underneath the body of the vehicle; for these vehicles Edbro has supplied its TS26 cylinders. The twin underfloor hoists are designed for 6 and 8 wheel trucks that need increased stability and capacity over smaller vehicles. The cylinders offer 20% more lift capacity – up to 26 tonnes - than their closest competitor and an average tipping speed of just 13 seconds.
The vehicles were designed and built by Abba Commercials which specialises in building high-spec, lightweight vehicles that offer users the highest levels of operational efficiency available. Abba has worked closely with Edbro in the past so is well aware of the reliability that its products offer.
Richard Neary, Co-Owner of Abba Commercials, says: “When L. Lynch approached us with a large order for new tipping vehicles in November we were aware that they expected high quality components to be fitted as standard. We suggested Edbro tipping cylinders, which was instantly met with approval due to their past experiences with Edbro products.”
Phil Griffiths, Northern Sales Manager for Edbro, adds: “When Abba placed the order with us for 60 tipping cylinders they explained that the customer was aware of our reputation. Haulage is all about margins and we know that light-weight, reliable components can mean the difference between profit and loss.”
