Loudounhill Contracts has added Sunward to its fleet

Scottish civil engineering company and quarry operators Loudounhill Contracts has added Sunward to its portfolio of plant machinery. The Ayrshire-based business, which specialises in groundworks and hard landscaping for housebuilders in the region, has acquired two Sunward SWE 155F medium excavators and a Sunward SWE 25F mini-excavator from local dealer Kattrak.

Established in 1986, Loudounhill has more than 35 years of experience in the industry, working on housebuilding and commercial construction projects of all sizes across central Scotland. It played a part in Mactaggart and Mickel’s award-winning Greenan Views development in Doonfoot.

The company also opened its own quarry – Thirstone Quarry in Crawfordjohn, Biggar, in 2008 – to supply aggregates to customers in Ayrshire, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Lanarkshire.

Sunward’s SWE 155F 15.6-tonne excavators are a versatile fit for large construction, be it buildings, roads, quarrying, demolition or forestry, while the 2.6-tonne SWE 25F mini can be transported on a small trailer with up to three buckets and a hydraulic breaker.

Loudounhill quarry manager Robert Craig had contacted Kattrak looking for new machines for its fleet, and the dealer suggested they try Sunward. It has not looked back. Robert says: “We select our fleet based on price and warranty and Sunward was the best deal around. Our operators are delighted with the machines. They find them easy to operate and are very happy with the build quality.”
