Talking about their decision to purchase the LiuGong excavators, Parchow Groundworks Ltd’s Managing Director, Andy Howe said “We chose LiuGong as we feel they represent great value for money. Not only do they look good, they are very robust machines. We also like all the extras you get as standard, especially from a safety perspective with the built-in cameras. For the operators you get all the creature comforts that you could possibly need in the cab”.
Summarizing his experience with the dealer Andy said, “We have found LiuGong Direct UK great to deal with, nothing has been too much trouble and we have got a great deal from them”.
