in augusT 2008 Barro Group took delivery of a new
Hitachi AH500D Articulated Dump Truck for use at its
Mountain View Quarry, located 70 kilometres west of
Melbourne. The quarry excavates basalt rock, which
is transported to the on-site crusher for production of
raw material for the company’s concrete plants.
The company re-opened the quarry in 2005, after it
had been closed for sixteen years.
The decision to invest in a new dump truck was
necessary in order to keep production capability of
the site to 18 hours. The company decided to test
Hitachi’s claims of higher productivity and lower
fuel consumption by purchasing Hitachi’s 50 tonne
articulated dump truck, the AH500D. While Barro
