It’s been a while since we had a little project to work on which will help increase our fleet – at last we found the perfect machine!

We realised a while back that we needed a machine to load materials in slate and gravel quarries but that it wouldn’t be something to be used all the time, so there would be no pressure to invest in a new or nearly new option when Colin could do most of the repairs himself.

Colin found a CAT Loading shovel which was about 30 odd years old and is needing some tender loving care, but it was still in good working order and would do the job that we were requiring it to do.

It has needed a couple of bits repaired since it arrived and will be going to the workshop in the winter to get some more work done, but is working most days and been a great asset to getting the work done.

We love it!
