Coal merchant builds UK's largest Cat 966K loader fleet

20 Jun 12 A Scottish coal supplier has created the UK’s largest fleet of Cat 966K wheel loaders by buying six of them in a single order.

Fergusson Group’s £2m deal with Caterpillar dealer Finning also included a Cat 725 ADT, Cat 320DL excavator and Cat 226b skid steer loader.

Fergusson imports, exports and distributes solid fuels. All six Cat 966K wheel loaders are now in operation at Fergusson’s main hub at Hunterston Terminal, from where the business moves in the region of 2 million tonnes of coal a year.

Operations director John Shute said: “As we continue to grow volume through our main hub at Hunterston, it’s vital that our plant equipment delivers reliability and provides efficiency in performance.”

Fergusson has also bought a full service and maintenance contract from Finning.
