Terex trio pushes waste through

2000 terex ecotec img 6739

Fletchers Metals and Waste Recycling (FMWR), based in Sheffield, originally processed scrap metal but has since focused on recycling, comprising mainly C&D, general dry waste and a small amount of hazardous material.

Managing director Richard Fletcher said: “Our recent investment in Terex Ecotec equipment reflects our desire to maximise the efficiency and increase throughput in our busy waste processing operation.”

The Fuchs TWH 226 waste handler fitted with a five-tine grab is a rugged purpose-built machine with a reach of 10.7m. It features an automatic central lubrication system on the upper carriage which ensures that the loading equipment and slewing ring are evenly supplied with a pre-defined quantity of lubricant at precisely determined intervals.

This improves the machine’s productivity and reduces repair and replacement part costs which occur because of bearing failure.

FMWR then decided to invest in further Terex Ecotec machines, and distributor Warwick Ward supplied a TDS 820 tracked slow speed shredder and a wheeled TTS 620 trommel.

The former is an aggressive slow-speed shredder suitable for all types of material that is capable of processing difficult material in one pass down to 150mm. Customisable shredding programmes allow operators to configure the machine to their requirements, reducing wrappage and maximising production.

The 6m-long TTS 620 features an intelligent feeder control system, which continually adjusts the feeder speed to optimise screening rates. Double-sided unrestricted drum access makes changing the screening drum a simple process. The design allows many other manufacturers’ screening drums to be utilised.
