Hillhead is famous for its live demonstrations and 2016 proved to be no different with a wide range of equipment being put through its paces in the quarry.
At the quarry face, equipment from leading suppliers such as Caterpillar, Volvo, JCB, Bell, Doosan, Hyundai, Liebherr, Komatsu, Case and Hitachi will be hard at work. Meanwhile, in the rock processing demonstration area, crushing and screening operations from Powerscreen, Sandvik, Terex Finlay, McCloskey, Baughans, Quarry Manufacturing & Supplies and a range of others will also be working. In addition, the Recycling Demonstration area will again be buzzing with the sounds of crushing, shredding, screening and washing equipment.
Of course it's not just about the large machinery, the indoor Pavilions will be a hive of activity where visitors can find an array of ancillary equipment, products and services including: automation and control systems; computer software; health and safety equipment; oils and lubricants; security systems; spare parts; and surveying equipment, amongst many others.
