Privately-owned contractor Pat Munro's first 5895 New Holland wheeled loader, an 18tonne W190B, is being used at the company's Caplich quarry in Alness, north of Inverness, Scotland.

It plays an essential role in the production process at the site, which produces around 150,000tonnes of material/year. The quarry is a sand and gravel operation and also produces readymix concrete and asphalt as well as sorting and storing recycled materials from local construction projects.

The W190B is used for loading materials into the readymix plant, loading tippers for distribution from the site, and for stockpiling materials, including recycled aggregates that are delivered to the quarry.

Service from the dealer 2338 Ravenhill Construction has been good as has the performance of the machine, according to the customer.

The machine will be expected to work at the site as a main production tool for seven to eight years, so its performance and reliability will be crucial to the operation. Even then it will be kept in reserve as a back-up unit for the site.
