Improved handling on two sites

Recycler Countrystyle Recycling has improved on-site handling at its Sittingbourne, Kent, facility with the introduction of four JCB 457 wheeled loaders.

Countrystyle provides specialist recycling, haulage and recovery services for a range of products, including plasterboard, wood, general waste, dry mixed recyc­lables, and green and food wastes. Two of the new models will be deployed in the dedicated plasterboard recycling building and the other two will operate in a wood yard at Ridham Dock.

Featuring a powerful MTU diesel engine that meets Stage IV/Tier 4 emissions, the 457 wheeled loader is designed to work at sites where large volumes need to be handled. It is available in a variety of configurations.

The dedicated JCB machines working in the plasterboard plant have been supplied with BMAir cabin air filtration technology. This prevents polluted air entering the cabin, and allows air quality within the operator’s working space to be monitored continuously.

The loaders have been supplied with automatic dual-agent fire suppression systems, supplied by Fireward, LED lighting and foam-filled tyres to ensure that on-site safety and machine uptime are optimised.
