Metso's official distributor in the UK, Garriock Bros Ltd, will present a whole series of Lokotrack® plants at the upcoming in-quarry Hillhead 2016 exhibition in Buxton, Derbyshire, on June 28-30, 2016.

At their stand M1, they will present Metso's Lokotrack® LT106(TM) and LT120(TM) mobile jaw crushing plants, the LT300HP(TM) mobile cone crushing plant as well as the LT1213(TM) mobile impact crushing plant.

The Lokotrack® LT106(TM) is equipped with the Nordberg® C106(TM) jaw crusher. New features, such as a radial side conveyor, high inertia flywheels and Metso IC(TM) process control system that utilizes an ultrasonic material level sensor, offer the best capacity and cost efficiency in the 40-tonne size class. Its compact dimensions and agility on tracks mean lower transport costs between and at crushing sites.

The robust Lokotrack® LT120(TM) mobile jaw crushing plant is an outcome of combining solid experience with a new way of thinking. The thorough design process that pays attention to each and every detail guarantees outstanding performance, and premium-quality Metso parts ensure a reliable solution.

From the range of the cone plants, the LT300HP(TM) mobile cone crushing plant is the model being exhibited. Equipped with the proven Nordberg® HP300(TM) cone crusher, it is the most efficient and flexible secondary and tertiary crushing plant on the market that can be transported from site to site as a single unit.

The LT1213(TM) mobile impact crushing plant completes the list of crusher types at Garriock's stand. Its new radial side conveyor, hydraulic locking on the long main conveyor and feed hopper walls are examples of innovations used in the LT1213(TM). The LT1213(TM) can be fine-tuned for aggregate, quarry or recycling applications with features like a vibrating grizzly or pan feeder under the crusher. The CAT® diesel engine secures crushing power and high-quality blow bars put the final touches on performance.

Exhibiting the combined expertise in the aggregates business

"Hillhead offers us a great opportunity to present Metso's solutions and demonstrate the expertise we both have in the aggregates business. Over the last years, we have invested a lot in facilities, tools and people to ensure that our customers continuously get value from us. All of that is what we want to demonstrate at Hillhead," says George Garriock, Managing Director of Garriock Bros Ltd.

Garriock Bros Ltd has been distributing Metso's mobile products since 2005 when they became the official Scottish distributor and saw its distributorship extended in 2011 to include England and Wales. Being a truly great partner to Metso for over 10 years, a renewed contract was signed in the company's premises in Coventry in March 2016.
