Central Demolition Ltd of Bonnybridge, Scotland, has invested in another package of Volvo excavators and loading shovels, including their largest shovel yet in the guise of an L150H.
“In our opinion, Volvo excavators and loading shovels are top-class products in terms of reliability, performance and operator acceptance,” says Murray Brodie, Central Demolition’s Fleet and Plant Service Manager. “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.”
The line- up of new arrivals includes a 14-tonne EC140E complete with dozer blade, a 22-tonne EC220E and a 30-tonne EC300E equipped with secondary demolition options. Two L110H loading shovels have also been supplied and the company’s largest Volvo wheeled loader to date – an L150H complete with 4.5m³ rehandling bucket. Both the EC140E and L110H will be deployed on processing materials at Central Demolition’s Bonnybridge recycling facility whilst the remaining machines will be used on demolition contracts across the UK.
The machines join around a dozen Volvo excavators ranging from 8 tonnes up to 46 tonnes, all specified for demolition duties and high reach applications, as well as Volvo loading shovels and, in all, Central Demolition Ltd operate 120 items of mobile equipment along with 32 road-going lorries including articulated lorries, low loaders, 8×4 rigid tippers and hook lifts and skip lorries, and 65 vans of various sizes for use by machine operators, demolition crews and mobile engineers.
