The working demonstration areas are what make Hillhead unique. Having the opportunity to see plant and equipment doing a real ‘job of work’ in a live quarry environment is invaluable for both exhibitors and visitors alike.
There are four separate demonstration areas:
- Quarry Face - three benches spanning the length of the quarry face will host over 35 machines including excavators, wheel loaders, dumptrucks, dozers, cold planers, hydraulic breakers, screening buckets and mist cannons.
- Rock Processing - also known as 'Crusher Alley' where a range of tracked and skid-mounted crushers, screens, scalping grids and stockpiling conveyors can be viewed.
- Recycling - located to the south of the exhibition site, this area shows a range of specialist crushers, shredders, screens and washing equipment.
- Registration - expanded in 2018 to create an enclosed arena, this area hosts rock processing and recycling demonstrations.
