Three Cat 972Ks, a Cat 938K and a Cat 980K wheeled loaders will help with the production of aggregates. The Cat 336EL hybrid excavator and Cat 740B articulated dump truck will work at the Tom’s Forest quarry.
Alan Mackenzie, chief executive of Breedon Aggregates Scotland, said: “We have over 70 applications throughout our operations in Scotland, including quarries, asphalt plants and ready-mixed concrete plants, and a commitment to reducing the environmental impact of these sites. To support that, we need a robust and reliable fleet of equipment that will give us the capacity to reduce emissions and increase our productivity.”
He continued: “Our operators have a decisive input to the purchasing decision of any machinery, and it’s key to our operations that they are comfortable and happy working with a machine before any investment is made. We have received some great feedback on the Cat machines we already have on our fleet, so it was an easy decision to invest further in Cat equipment.”
