MRF adds excavator

A Volvo EC55C compact excavator has been supplied by Howard Plant Sales to ISM Waste Services and Recycling to handle industrial, commercial, domestic and special waste materials at the company’s Ramsbottom, Greater Manchester facility.

The excavator joins an L45F loading shovel which was supplied four years ago, along with a fleet of 18 Volvo trucks, deployed in various applications including bulk waste haulage, skip lorries and roll-on-off demountable trucks. ISM’s latest equipment investment follows the recent expansion of its MRF, which includes a twotier picking line and new trommel.

Operations director John Allen said: “We needed a medium-sized compact excavator complete with selector grab to help pick and sort a variety of material. The EC55C offered us the best forward reach and the most spacious cab in the five to six-tonne class.”

The machine is equipped with optional X3 grab rotation hydraulics to power the selector grab.
