Moving huge rocks
Mackia Land Design in St. Agatha had the daunting task of moving two gigantic rocks over 180 km. Mackia’s Glen Keats says one rock weighed 90 tons, while the other was 28 tons. It took two hours and 40 minutes to transport the rocks. “With the client, we secured a 400 ton crane, got all the required permits for road closure to load the rock in Wiarton and transport it to St. Agatha, just outside Waterloo, for a landscape project.”
