Optimum shovel size at transfer station

2000 britainiacrest volvo

Surrey-based Britaniacrest Recycling has added a Volvo L150H to its fleet, with a second machine on order, as it ramps up production at its recently acquired transfer station at Warnham.

Co-director Ray Foss Jnr said: “The Volvo L150 is the optimum size of loading shovel for our recycling operations at Warnham, Gatwick and Storrington, and we now operate two F-models, a G and two H-variants.

”We specified machines with the long boom option, which means they are able to load high-sided bulkers and tamp material down to optimise each load that goes to landfill. Overall, the productivity of the machines, particularly the F and H models, has been particularly good.”

The L150H is equipped with a heavy-duty direct mount 7cu m high-tip bucket which has been supplied by Ulrich Attachments. The machine offers a practical load over height of 4.34m and a full turn tipping load of 14 tonnes.

A maximum torque of 1,317Nm is achieved at 1,450rpm, and the resultant fuel savings are enhanced by the Volvo Eco-pedal, encouraging the operator to run the machine at its optimum rpm in the engine’s torque.

A heavy-duty oil bath air pre-cleaner protects air intake to the engine when working in dusty conditions.
