Volvo machines are ‘Central’ focus in Bonnybridge

BONNYBRIDGE-based Central Demolition has splashed out on the firm’s largest ever Volvo loading shovel, the L150H.

The machine is part of a new package of Volvo machines, which includes a 14-tonne EC140E with dozer blade; a 22-tonne EC220E and a 30-tonne EC300E with secondary demolition options; and two L110H loading shovels.The L150H has been supplied with a 4.5m³ rehandling bucket.

The EC140E and L110H will be deployed on processing materials at Central Demolition’s Bonnybridge recycling facility while the other machines will be put to work on demolition contracts across the country.

The Central Demolition fleet already boasted around a dozen Volvo excavators ranging from eight to 46-tonnes, as well as Volvo loading shovels.

Murray Brodie, the firm’s fleet and plant service manager said, “In our opinion, Volvo excavators and loading shovels are top-class products in terms of reliability, performance and operator acceptance. For example, our ten-year old L90F has clocked up over 21,000 hours on its original powertrain components and hasn’t put a foot wrong, so choosing an L90H last year and this latest package of Volvo machines as our workload increases, was a simple one.”
