High Reach Demolition supplied by Ridgway Rentals to Beattie Demolition in Scotland

We recently supplied two of our High Reach Demolition Excavators to George Beattie & Sons in Scotland.

Their task – to demolish the Bothwell Park Road Bridge on the M74

The Komatsu PC450HRD with 28m reach and PC490HRD with 30m reach were both supplied to the Scottish demolition company without Ridgway names on – as per company policy – to allow Beattie to show their own decals whilst carrying out the work over the weekend.

Transported to site – No on-site assembly required!

Both High Reach Demolition Machines were delivered direct to the site in Scotland in the configuration specified by Beattie all ready to start work with no on-site assembly required!

The M74 was closed between junctions 4 and 5 to allow the demolition to take place over the weekend and scheduled to open from 6am, Monday – in time for the morning rush hour!
