Willshee’s of Burton on Trent has taken delivery of its fifth Liebherr machine to further increase waste handling capacity at its MRF.
Willshee’s now manages two depots and provides a range of sustainable resource management strategies that deliver collection, processing and recovery. With two local authority contracts and a fleet of skip trucks, it processes waste over a six-day week.
The latest acquisitions are a Liebherr LH22 material handler and a replacement 550 wheeled loader (above).
Managing director Dean Willshee said: “It has been a great relationship since our first meeting at the RWM show.”
The Stage IIIB/Tier 4i wheeled loader is claimed to lead the field when it comes to economy, using up to 25% less fuel than comparable machines under the same conditions.
Around to 8% of this fuel advantage is achieved thanks to the Liebherr Power Efficiency (LPE) system, which reduces both fuel consumption and component wear.
The engine management is under proactive control and all engine map characteristics and parameters are taken into account.
LPE also recognises the performance profile required by the operator.
