Tillicoultry Quarries adds to fleet with Volvo package

TILLICOULTRY Quarries has added to its fleet with three new Volvo loading shovels and another A30G articulated hauler.

The package includes two L120H loading shovels complete with 3.5m³ rehandling buckets and boom suspension systems, one of which has been sent to Tillicoultry’s Northfield quarry and the other to Tulliallan. Both will be tasked with rehandling and stocking out duties.

A larger L150H equipped with a 4.2m³ rehandling bucket has been bought to operate at Hullerhill sand quarry, while the A30G has gone to Northfield fitted with side extensions to maximise its payload capacity.

All the machines have been fitted with Volvo’s CareTrack telematics system. Tillicoultry Quarries has also included service agreements with each machine, meaning SMT GB will take care of the scheduled maintenance with Volvo trained service engineers using genuine Volvo parts.

Tillicoultry Quarries MD Wallace Menzies said, “We have a long association with Volvo construction equipment products having operated their loading shovels and haulers for the past 32 years. The Volvo product represents excellent value for money in terms of economical fuel consumption, high residual values, a proven track record for reliability and sustainability and their qualities and pedigree mirror our own high standards in offering a competitive and professional service.”
