We’ve invested in this Terberg unit to move trailers around the yard at our Bishop’s Castle sawmill. It’s safer for the operator to use since there’s no need to get out of the vehicle to hitch the trailer. It reduces the number of vehicle movements in and out of the yard and makes the place much safer for staff going about other business. Just as important, it reduces pollution round the site with a very low emission Cummins engine.
Longer term, we’re building a small lorry park on land adjacent to the mill which will mean that even fewer vehicles will need to come onto the main site. This trailer load is stock heading south to London and Windsor.
