Rough terrain truck impresses operator during trial

Simply Waste Solutions turned to Forkway Group to improve efficiency in its materials handling equipment with a demonstration in 2014 of the AUSA rough terrain trucks.

James Capel, managing director of Simply Waste, explains: “We also trialled a competitor’s truck to compare the two and gain a better understanding of which one would work better for us.

“But once our operator jumped into the AUSA’s Taurulift cab he wanted to keep it there and then. He found the AUSA to be easier to operate and more comfortable, making the AUSA Taurulift T 235 H a clear favourite. But there were other important factors to take into consideration.”

As the T 235 H offered significant cost savings over the competitor truck, Simply Waste could allocate the money saved towards a number of front attachments.

It also utilised the innovative ‘quick hitch’ feature which allows the operator to safely change from fork attachment to bucket and vice versa in around 20 seconds.
