The machine was supplied by Cumbrian-based dealer Taylor & Braithwaite after a three-day demonstration event at L&W Wilson’s quarry site.

The heavy-duty 516 Scalper remains at Roan Edge Quarry, where it has already been put to work alongside L&W Wilson’s fleet of other construction machines. The scalper is being used to screen materials to supply aggregates and topsoil.

“After seeing the 516 vibrating scalper in operation at the demonstration event and having the opportunity to test drive the machine myself, I was really impressed and thought it was ideal to support our operations at Roan Edge Quarry,” said L&W Wilson managing director Alan Wilson. “The knowledge and support received from Taylor & Braithwaite is always excellent, so we had no hesitation with them supplying us with this machine.”
