Long reach


"This 92-tonne Kocurek KH920 long-reach excavator has been proving its worth on a difficult land stabilization and environmental improvement scheme at Yorwaste's Skibeden Crag landfill site near Skipton, North Yorkshire.

Because of the extreme inaccessibility of the 60m high quarry face, the operation called for an excavator which would be capable of operating at a safe distance (7m) from the top edge of the face while reaching over to dig and profile the loose rock below.

The 33m reach KH920 - the longest-reach machine in Europe and the only one capable of carrying out this particular job - was hired from long-reach excavator specialists Kocurek Excavators of Ipswich and completed the task in less than a week."
