The investment is split equally between 80cm and 120cm models.
The current JCB Ride-on-Roller model has been available for around three years and to date has sold over 3,000 units world-wide.
Ken Stewart, Head of Procurement at GAP, commented: “On-going supply issues driven by engine availability has forced us to look for alternative suppliers to maintain continuity of supply to our depot network. We undertook a full technical and commercial evaluation and were delighted with the resulting outcome. We’re pleased to have increased our scope of supply with JCB/Stewart Plant Sales. I believe JCB offers an unrivalled UK dealer support network for after-sales and servicing.
The rollers are designed in Germany, built in India and fitted with Kubota engines which maintains our strong affinity with the Kubota product. Deliveries have now commenced, and we expect the feedback to be positive from both depots and our valued customers”.
