Handler has long reach

Longreach material handler

Northern Ireland waste manage­ment company RiverRidge Recy­cling has taken delivery of the country’s first electrically powered Fuchs MHL820 long-reach materials handler from appointed distributor Blue Ireland.

The versatile machine is now hard at work at RiverRidge’s MRF in Coleraine, where it is proving quick and agile around the work­ing area, with a generous length power cable.

The MHL820 has an operating weight of 20 tonnes, a reach capa­bility of up to 10.4m and, in this case, is equipped with an Arden S1102B grab. With a total power output of 95kW, there is power to spare even for heavy loads, and the four-point hydraulically operated outriggers provide total stability for stationary operation.

The hydraulically elevating cab provides a raised line of sight for the operator, which is particularly important for maximum load and site visibility and enhanced safety operation.

Being used under cover, the electrically powered machine’s zero emissions, coupled with its quiet operation and minimal heat output, contribute positively to the daily working environment.
