New excavator for Hermitage Quarry
Gallagher Aggregates Ltd has invested in a new 85-tonne excavator. The Zaxis 870 excavator came from Iceland and has undergone major refurbishment by HM Plant in Durham. This machine replaces an older version that has handled over 6 million tonnes over the past 7 years. It is now the main mover of primary aggregate at Hermitage Quarry.
