A Volvo L45H loading shovel is being deployed to handle green waste, waste wood and road sweepings at Harry Parry’s Pwllheli-based recycling business, HM & BP Parry.
Specifically for HM & BP Parry’s recycling operation, the machine is equipped with a 1.5cu m general purpose bucket and 15.5R25 Nokian tyres.
Parry said: “Getting the specification of the tyres right was crucial for our operation. These tyres provide a high degree of traction, superb wear characteristics when working on the concrete pads yet are flexible enough to work efficiently on soft ground when we occasionally use the machine around the farm.”
The L45H is powered by a four-litre, four cylinder Stage IV final engine developing 99.3hp and a maximum torque at 1,450r/min. This in turn is directly linked to a fully hydrostatic transmission providing a maximum speed of 30kph.
