Pit & Quarry’s April 2021 edition is now available, with a cover story on Tennessee’s Hoover Materials, in-depth coverage of excavators and loaders, a special section dedicated to drilling and blasting, and a supplement all about the Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame.

Hoover Materials, which graces the magazine’s cover this month, uncovered an opportunity in recent years to develop the only sand and gravel processing site near Nashville, Tennessee. All other sand products must be barged to the Nashville region via the Ohio River. This month, P&Q shares the operation’s exciting find and how Hoover Materials commissioned a complete crushing, screening, washing and classifying plant last summer.

P&Q readers will also find content on excavators and loaders within our April digital edition. The magazine digs into next-generation equipment that will someday soon feature less noise, fewer emissions and reduced maintenance for operators. Additionally, we showcase some of the latest excavators and loaders to hit the market, and we provide tips to prep your mobile equipment for the busy season ahead.

Our drilling and blasting coverage explores the four most costly blasting mistakes operations can make, and we present the latest drilling and blasting equipment your operation can consider. Readers will also find a section of historical photos illustrating drilling and blasting operations of the past.

Those interested in the Pit & Quarry Hall of Fame will find a number of pages to explore, as well. P&Q unveils the 2021 Hall of Fame class this month, and we look back on past Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Bios of every Pit & Quarry Hall of Famer enshrined since 2013 are also published this month.

Don’t wait another minute to dig into our April digital edition. Check it out right now.
