Loader stays cool in dust

Countrystyle Recycling has extended its fleet with an L1506E wheeled loader from Bell Equipment UK. The dust-heavy environment of the company’s Folkestone MRF required a wheeled loader capable of performing without overheating.

Jamie Houston, operations director at Countrystyle, explained: “Our machines are required to complete demanding jobs, from pushing up waste materials to loading them into lorries for disposal. At our Folkestone plant, the requirement has been for a machine that can be applied to loading different types of construction and demolition waste. With the dusty atmosphere presenting its challenges, we were attracted to Bell because of its inclusion of QuadCool technology within machines.”

QuadCool involves compartmentalising the engine’s radiator technology and incorporating fine mesh pre-filters. This has been proven to combat dust build-up and prevent the engines from overheating, in turn reducing downtime and cleaning frequency.

The L1506E is the second Bell purchase by Countrystyle, following the firm’s original selection of a L1806E in 2011, which currently performs at the firm’s Ridham facility in Kent.
