Large bucket proves a hit

2000 frm volvo loading shovel

A 12-tonne Volvo L90H loading shovel which was ordered by Forth Resource Management (FRM) at this year’s Scot Plant exhibition has been supplied complete with a 3cu m quick attachment mounted high-tip bucket, complete with top clamp.

“Both the size of the machine and especially the size of the bucket are key to handling the weight and density of materials arriving at our site,” said FRM operations director Alex Dunbar.

“We receive a variety of material, from green waste from street collections, waste wood, inert concrete and rubble and, in particular, topsoil for screening and processing from greenfield sites which is then blended with the compost we produce.

“The L90H and bucket combination is proving to be the best solution for handling this type of diversity.”

The L90H is powered by a Volvo Tier IV final six-litre engine, developing 186hp with a maximum torque of 853Nm at 1,400rpm. The machine also benefits from Volvo driveline components, designed to offer fuel savings each shift.

The FRM machine has been fitted with third and fourth line hydraulics. The company has followed up with an order for a second-hand L60F wheel loader.
