Rebooting…

November 17, 2015

mainheaderHello Plant Fans,

If you were wondering, yes, we’re still here. Walker Plant Services Ltd. is still up and running, serving the UK, Europe, and beyond, with new and used parts for Volvo Construction Equipment.

It’s been a while since this page has had any input, for which we apologise.  Staff changes, and day to day business, have led to concentration being placed elsewhere.  Amongst other activities, our main website has been updated, and can be viewed at www.walkerplant.com.

We are also now on Facebook.  If you’re on there yourself, feel free to drop by, take a look, and give us a “Like”.  You can find us at www.facebook.com/walkerplantservices.

In the meantime, we will accommodate the non-Facebookers amongst you by posting updates via WordPress as well.

Volvo L220 Overhaul Update

July 3, 2012

We had completed the bulk of the work on this shovel, when we undertook a large service before delivery.

An oil change from the rear differential revealed it was badly contaminated with steel and a test drive around the yard confirmed our suspicion that there was unacceptable wear.

We are refurbishing the unit to our customer’s instruction. Pictures show some of the wear.

Volvo L220 Overhaul

May 30, 2012

We have been awarded the work to completely overhaul the engine and transmission on two of these massive machines.

Reassembly of the transmission using a new casing (there were cracks in the original) cleanliness and attention to detail are critical.

Volvo TD122 engine ready to fit. We have rebuilt it as a KLE version which is the low emissions permutation.

Following the engine and transmission refit, the rest of the machine will have a thorough inspection and repairs will be undertaken as necessary with the owners approval. When this one is finished it will be taken back to the quarry and the second machine will arrive at our workshops for similar treatment.

Construction Machinery Air-Con Units

January 24, 2011

We have been searching for a very long time for a suitable air-con unit for retro fitting. We have seen all sorts and they have either been too expensive, bulky or unsuitable in other ways. At long last we have found one – a Red Dot unit as can be seen from the photos. We think you will agree it is compact, lightweight and presentable.

Unit fitted on top of Volvo A35 Cab.
