KELSTON SPARKES TAKE DELIVERY OF ANOTHER TWO LOADMASTER ON-BOARD WEIGHING SYSTEMS
Kelston Sparkes, the long established plant hire and sales group founded by company Chairman Mr Kelston Sparkes back in 1952, have taken delivery of two Loadmaster 8000iX systems fitted onto Volvo L110G.
The company, based in Stanton Drew near Bristol has seen a remarkable family-led rise from a single man operation to now employing 150 people. The business in engaged in a broad spectrum of contracts including individual and national plant hire companies, major quarrying groups, public sector bodies and national government organisations with expertise ranging from demolition to remediation, crushing and screening to recycling and training to surveying.

Kelston Sparkes are a long-term customer of RDS South West and hold a significant place in its history as recalled by Roger Hawker, Managing Director, “we supplied our very first Loadmaster 5000 system to Kelston back in 1994 and his company has remained a premier customer ever since”
Loadmaster has benefitted from more than 17 years of continual development at RDS Technology headquarters in Stroud, Gloucestershire and the latest recently launched 8000iX model benefits from additional standard features including temperature compensation enhancing system performance particularly on loaders with a wide variation in operating temperature and angle compensation providing an additional level of precision beneficial on most sites and not only those with obvious slopes.
Also, the Loadmaster iX range offers effective management of weighing data. The Loadmaster 8000iX has an integral SD card port for the fast and efficient transfer of data between loader and weighbridge or office PC and enables pre-registered customer reference data to be uploaded directly to the instrument.
The L110’s will join a fleet of 20 loaders and be put to work within the crushing and screening division deployed on a wide variety of sites including one of the company’s specialist areas, serving the South West quarrying industry particularly in the Mendip Hills.
The Loadmaster system brings operational benefits and commenting on the systems effectiveness and service from RDS South West, Alan Sparkes, Managing Director said, “Loadmaster is an integral part of the ‘load out’ process. Trucks are accurately loaded at the face eliminating return trips from the weighbridge and therefore maximising productivity. I have a positive working relationship with Roger Hawker at RDS South West, he knows what we want and is always available on the end of the phone”.
