EvoQuip Joins P&L Barton Ltd. Fleet
P&L Barton Ltd., based in Carnforth, Lancashire, started out in 1972 when Peter Barton invested in his first digger, a JCB 3C, and set up P Barton Plant Hire. Almost 50 years later, P&L Barton Ltd remains a family run business determined to offer existing and new customers a consistent high quality of service. Over the years, the company has evolved and expanded working on a vast array of projects with clients in private households and businesses, to local councils and large multi-nationals. P&L Barton Ltd provides plant and services on a sub-contract or hire-only basis, offering a wide range of services to the construction, groundwork, civil engineering, quarrying, recycling and haulage industries.
P&L Barton Ltd operates a diverse selection of modern, well-maintained equipment and in recent years, EvoQuip, a Terex Brand, has become part of the fleet. The company took receipt of its first EvoQuip Colt 1000 from Blue Central, June 2020. Since then, the machine has worked in multiple configurations to suit required job sites.
One recent application has been to produce limestone walling stone for one of their regular clients where space was limited. P&L Barton Ltd set about reconfiguring the Colt 1000 so that both conveyors discharged out the same side into segregated areas, maximizing the area available and eliminating double handling.
Richard Barton, plant manager at P&L Barton Ltd, said, “We have been able to run the machine in 2-way split on one project, then convert it so that mids and fines are discharged on the same side on a really compact site, and in standard set-up on another site. With the range of media options available, I don’t think there is any job she can’t do.”
The highly adaptable Colt 1000 scalping screen is designed to operate in both heavy-duty scalping and precision screening applications. The Colt 1000 achieves a compact footprint, maintaining the ethos of the EvoQuip range, while achieving versatility and mobility.
