Patersons Quarries has opted for a Volvo L110H loading shovel at its Burrowine Moor quarry at Bogside, Fife.
Powered by a Stage-IV final Volvo eight-litre engine developing 258 nett hp with a maximum torque of 1250Nm at 1,450rpm, the L110H features optional extras such as boom suspension or ride control in order to maximise load retention while traversing the site, a Groeneveld automatic greasing system, an Ogden Sensor Vision reversing aid, hydraulic attachment bracket and a 3.3cu m heavy-duty general purpose bucket.
With a load over height of 2.79m under the tipped bucket, the machine demonstrates a full-turn tipping load of 11,420kg. It is ideally suited to its main task of loading extracted sand into a receiving hopper for the washing and screening process at Burrowine Moor.
The L110H will also be used for secondary duties around the plant including stock piling, cleaning out under conveyors and accessing more confined areas around the plant, along with occasional truck loading.
