Viveros Toscal is a very well run operation. There is a retail drive-in garden centre offering amazing variety, with owner Joaquin Ribes much in demand for his landscaping skills.
The business increasingly plants more and more palm trees, olives and exotic ferns for the leisure landscaping market throughout Europe.
At the heart of Viveros Toscal is a JCB 4x4 Teletruk. The 3 tonnes capacity is enough for all jobs. The 4x4 capability and the narrow 1.35m width allows it to travel between plantation aisles out in the fields.
The JCB Bagezee 'trapdoor' shovel is used for filling bags of aggregates, sand, wood chippings, and compost. There is also a general purpose hydraulic full-tilt shovel, and also a jib-arm extension.
Waste foliage cut from trees and ferns in the fields is collected quickly because the Teletruk is four-wheel-drive and narrow. With the Euro-standard cage locked in place, the contents can be tipped out forwards just like the action of a loading shovel. The JCB Teletruk is the only counterbalanced forklift able to do this.
