Our grounds maintenance contractor, ISS Ltd, have invested £250,000 in two JCB Fastrac 400 tractors as part of their ongoing commitment to support us in delivering an improved and more efficient grounds service to our Armed Forces.

The tractors will be deployed at seven RAF bases within the Regional Prime Central contract and will be used to ensure the military airfields in the region are effectively maintained.

The JCB tractors offer faster speeds, greater load carrying capacity, and quicker turning circles, potentially saving several working days a year.  In addition, the multi-functional configuration allows them to undertake a variety of other tasks using the same operator with complete flexibility. This includes the safe mowing of slopes, banks and hedges. In addition, the machine’s ability to hold a large capacity spray tank will provide total and selective weed control.

Paul Bond, our Operations Director, Regional Prime Central said “We’re really pleased that ISS are investing in our contract which should bring great benefits to the airfields we maintain.”
