Smiths Heavy Haulage – who in January 2015 were contracted to move a Komatsu PC1250 Excavator – from Newport Docks, South Wales to Duntilland Quarry, Scotland. They were then to bring back an identical machine – as a return load – so covering over 800 miles. Both moves were completed within one week.

In the words of one of our Judges:

“Severe winter weather and a tight timeframe gave added pressure to the crew, indirect routing and width restrictions meant that the driver had his work cut out with a 5 metre wide load. The job was completed safely and successfully and the company won further business as a result, the use of good equipment and an experienced crew were too key factors, along with careful planning.”

We would like to say a massive thank you to our returning sponsors:
