Excavator looks down

JCB JS220 22 tonne tracked excavator

Economic Skips has an unusual way of dealing with the industrial waste that passes through its facility: by positioning its JCB JS220 22-tonne tracked excavator on the waste itself rather than having machines operating at ground level.

This makes life easier for the operator but tests the machine in the harsh and dirty environment. Chris Guinnelly, plant and yard manager, said: “We’ve been using the JS220 for this task for a year now and are delighted with how well it handles the difficult job and tough environment.

“The hydraulic raised cab means we can position the excavator above the waste and see into the hopper we are loading, making it safer and more efficient. The intelligent reversible fan and wide-core radiator ensure the machine keeps cool even when we are working it hard.”
