Scottish specialist contractor JAM Drilling has extended its fleet with four new 18-tonne MAN TGM 4×4 rigids with specialist dropside bodies.
The new trucks supplied by MV Commercial and equipped with a Palfinger PK19001 crane, will be used across the company’s telecom contract, replacing defective and faulty telegraph poles in Scotland.
John MacNiven is the MD at JAM Drilling, who operate from Oban and Glasgow. ‘Our spec is always very particular due to the work we do and the fact that we need to be able to carry the telegraph poles across the country so we need a supplier that can provide high-quality, robust builds,’ he said.
All elements of the truck build and customisation were carried out at the MV Commercial Airdrie facility, including a specialist chassis ordered specifically for this deal. The build team also added a ladder rack height alteration and teeth on the crossbars for added pole grip.
The trucks also feature a host of carefully specified safety equipment including audible reverse warning for FORS- Bronze compliance and cyclist warning board and light on the near side, maximising protection when on the road or carrying out maintenance.
Established in 2007, JAM Drilling is part of The CJT Group, a main contractor within the Telecoms industry throughout the UK and Europe.
