Forbes machinery dealer Roylance Tractor Replacements is continuing to ramp up its machinery line-up, adding the JCB range to its existing Kubota dealership.

The Roylance family left the automotive industry earlier this year after more than 65 years with Roylance's Auto Zone taken over by Repco.

Chris Roylance and son, Justin, are now focused on building their new business in Sam street, servicing the machinery needs of the agriculture, mining and construction sectors.

While development has been hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic, the pair are delighted to add JCB machinery to their business.

The UK-based JCB is a now a global manufacturer of agriculture and heavy construction equipment but is perhaps best known for its range of backhoe loaders with a loader bucket on the front and an excavator bucket at the rear.

"JCB is among the top three manufacturers of construction equipment in the world," Justin Roylance said.

"There's very few worksites around Australia you can drive past that wouldn't feature the iconic JCB backhoe but, more than that, they have a fantastic range of tractors, excavators, wheeled loaders, forklifts.

"We already have some monster machines on site with the 455ZX wheel loader arriving first while we are expecting an 8330 Fastrac tractor within the next couple of days.

"Aside from that we have received a 3CX elite backhoe and a 155W wheeled skid steer loader, a machine suited to tight worksites.

"The timing of the new arrivals is perfect given the Federal Government incentives on offer at the moment to allow farmers, trade and industry to upgrade or add to their fleet while JCB CEA (Australia) is offering attractive financing options."
