New loaders boost Day's production
Aggregate handling and bagging at two of Day Aggregates’ sites in London have been boosted with delivery of three new Volvo wheeled loaders.
The two L180Fs will be used for stockpiling, rehandling and loading road wagons at the company’s Purley and Charlton aggregate reception facilities while the new L120F will be used for bagging operations. The two larger new machines replace similar sized machines in the Day fleet that have clocked up around 13000 hours over the last five years.
“Once again we’ve opted for the Volvo brand as the machines have demonstrated that they are reliable and well on top of the demands we place on them. They are a good tool for the job,” commented Day plant manager Stuart Holmes. “In addition, the CareTrack and Matris GPS monitoring systems allow remote interrogation of how the machines are being utilised by the operators on site. All this coupled to the fact that Volvo is head and shoulders above the competition when it comes to product support are important reason why we’re staying with them.”
