Llechwedd Slate Caverns Manrider Overhaul

Llechwedd Slate Cavern Manrider

Clayton Equipment is involved in the overhaul of the Llechwedd Slate Caverns manrider. Llechwedd Slate Caverns is a tourist attraction in Gwynedd, Wales that details the history of slate mining. The Deep Mine Tour at the facility takes visitors back to the Victorian era, accessing the underground cavern using Britain’s steepest cable railway to depths of 500ft.

The Gold Rush

Clayton Equipment recently successfully delivered and commissioned three locomotives for the Peruvian gold mining company Marsa. The client needed the equipment to be deployed on site in a very short period of time which necessitated an accelerated build programme to meet the required delivery.

The order was placed and delivered in a period of just 16 weeks and was comprised of three 3.5 tonne battery locomotives and associated equipment. These 80 volt, 14hp locomotives were commissioned at site by Clayton Equipment engineers and put straight to work.
