When John Cropper of W. Cropper & Son Limited decided to replace their 2006 Volvo EC15 BXTV that was the only decision he had to make, the choice of machine was clear-cut, another Volvo!

John did take the new EC18 on demo, that being the machine that replaces their current EC15 BXTV. Whilst John had been completely satisfied with their EC15, he found that the EC18 has improved operational digging performance and increased hydraulic controllability, thus making combined operations silky smooth and effortless. Other improvements noted were the increased cab size with clear floor space and travel pedals plus the increased access and serviceability of the new machine.

John did take note of the increased rear protection afforded to the rear of the EC18 over the EC15, however, for John, this was not an issue. W. Cropper & Son part exchange EC15 looks like a new machine and is almost unmarked after its four years of faultless service. Without doubt the machine is an absolute credit to the company and John's care and attention.

Croppers also operate their Volvo EC38 on various groundwork and construction projects throughout the Northwest, for further information contact John Cropper: 01704 232054.
