The order follows on from a 22 machine order with dealer Finning last year.
Lynch’s latest fleet expansion features 30 Cat 308E hydraulic excavators and eight Cat D6N track-type tractors.
Merrill Lynch, operations director for Lynch, said: “Following the recent upturn in the economy, the demand for plant equipment has given the company the opportunity to further expand our fleet.
“Our initial significant investment in Cat machinery proved to be very popular with our customers and met our commitment to providing the best construction equipment on the market.
“Following this, we decided to approach Finning with the view to purchasing more Cat equipment.”
“A number of higher-profile projects that the machines are now working on are required to meet stage IIIB emissions standards and both the Cat D6N and Cat 320EL comply with these regulations.”
The Cat 308E hydraulic excavator is fitted with a Cat C3.3B electronic engine, it offers a cleaner and quieter operation on site.
The Cat D6N track-type tractor is built with a Cat 6.6 ACERT™ engine which features advanced electronic control and precision fuel delivery, allowing for a more efficient machine performance.
