Hillhead: Day Two

Hillhead2June 20, 2012 – Day Two of the Hillhead working show near Buxton, England, was just like Day One in at least one respect: Sunny skies shone down upon thousands of attendees and millions of tons of equipment gathered on the quarry floor. Today's activities were dominated by a press event held by Sandvik, which introduced several new crushers and announced the return of the Rammer brand of secondary breaking hammer. In addition to product introductions, Sandvik brand managers discussed features and technological advances, and demonstrated the equipment in action along the face at the back end of the quarry. It was great to meet so many new people, and to see a few familiar faces such as John Best and Dave Schellberg of McLanahan.
