Plant Hire – Projects

Merriman work across the UK on contracts varying from, earthworks, to reclamation, remediation and building. We know the importance of plant machinery – and the need to make the right equipment choice to meet the need.

One such contract where plant machinery choice was key was at Glensanda Quarry, in Scotland – one of the largest quarries in the UK. The hire activity involves the excavation of quarry material and loading onto dump trucks.

The machine on hire from Merriman is a 385 excavator with 85 tonne carrying capacity – hired with one of our skilled operatives.

The sheer size of the 385 excavator meant that it was transported to Glensanda by a police escorted low loader to just north of Oban then travelled via barge for the final leg of the journey.
