Expansion at regional waste and quarry
management company WCL Quarries Ltd
has led to the purchase of a used Finning
Fair Buy Cat D6R to support the landfill
operation at its Griff Quarry.
Operating at
its Griff Quarry
in Warwickshire,
the Cat D6R is
being used to fill
in six million cubic
metres of void
space with inert
materials. In addi-
tion to compac-
tion and levelling
duties, the Cat D6R
will support the
company’s mixed
recycling opera-
tions at the site, which will be processing
a full range of materials, including plaster-
board, grit and wood.
Operating several Caterpillar machines
across their sites in the Midlands including
excavators and mobile crushers. Mark
Deadman, operations manager for WCL
Quarries LTD said, “We have a long
standing relationship with Finning so when
we needed a dozer, we looked to them for
available options and costs.
“The Cat D6R predominately manages
the pushing out of the tip and the
compaction levelling and even though it is
an essential piece of equipment, it is not a
high hours application on this site. So when
Finning suggested a used equipment unit,
we explored this further with them.
“As a fair buy option, the price was very
good and we also knew that Finning had
performed rigorous checks on the unit, so
we were confident in what we were buying.”
Phil Birch, customer account manager at Finning
said, “WCL had specific requirements for the
size of dozer they wanted and a price bracket for
what they wanted to spend. We sourced the Cat
D6R and were able to provide a service history
for WCL, complete with oil sampling reports.
