TILLICOULTRY Quarries has purchased the latest Volvo G series A30 articulated hauler for its Northfield Quarry located on the outskirts of Denny.
The new 30 tonne articulated hauler has been supplied complete with full cantilever tailgate and side extensions and follows a long standing tradition of operating Volvo loading shovels and haulers at all of the company’s quarrying facilities. Its main duties are transferring stone and secondary products from the Northfield quarry’s bins to stocking areas located around the facility. The addition of the new hauler to the fleet is due to the recent expansion and acquisitions in the central belt locality by Tillicoultry Quarries according to Managing Director Wallace Menzies.
The hauler meets the requirements of Stage IV final emissions legislation being powered by an electronically controlled, six cylinder 264kW turbo charged Volvo V-ACT diesel engine.
