Fast Loadouts, Precision Drilling Just Part of the Picture at White Rock
(1st/2nd Quarter 2011)
Above: A high-capacity CAT 988H front-end loader quickly fills the bed of a customers truck with limestone (limerock) at White Rock Quarries in Miami, FL. Fast loading times, state-of-the-art outbound scales and remote ticket printing keep things moving and ensure fast turnaround times for customers.

The shot rock is recovered by dragline, stockpiled to dry, then hauled to onsite crushing equipment for sizing into a range of commercial aggregates and screenings. (Photos by Dave Kibby)
