First Volvo buy for Bucks waste facility

H&H Waste Management has taken delivery of a Volvo loading shovel in the guise of an L180H and an EW240E materials handler for its recently acquired waste handling facility in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

Both machines are the first Volvos to be purchased by the company, and are intended to handle a range of material from residual waste to wood, industrial waste, concrete and rubble.

The 28-tonne loading shovel has been fitted with a heavy-duty 4.8cu m hi-tip bucket, together with 26.5R25 solid wheel and tyre assemblies to counter general wear while working on the concrete pad.

The L180H features a 13-litre, Stage IV final engine developing 333hp in a relatively low range of 1,300-1,400 rpm.

Powered by a six-cylinder Volvo engine developing 171 net hp, the EW240E offers the latest in engine technology. For example, pump flow is controlled for combined equipment and slewing operations to reduce the flow loss through the overload relief valves.

The cab has a roomy interior with plenty of legroom and foot space. All-round visibility is enhanced by pressurised and filtered cab air supplied by a 14-vent climate control system.
