Waste firm sticks with Liebherr
Waste management company Bywaters (Leyton) Ltd has placed an order for 10 specialist waste handlers from Liebherr.
The machines, to be delivered in stages over the next few months, are a mixture of long-reach industrial rehandlers and wheeled loading shovels.
They will be used at Bywaters’ waste yards at Lea Riverside, Bow – London’s largest undercover dry materials recovery facility – and Gateway Road, Leyton, replacing older Liebherr models.
The order is comprised of L550 and L556 wheeled loaders, R924 Litronic tracked and A904 Litronic wheeled long-reach industrial rehandlers.
The wheeled loaders are articulated, hydrostatically driven and in the 16-17 tonnes class, with tipping load of 11,650kg and just over 13,000kg respectively.
The R924 C Litronic tracked industrial rehandler, also Stage IIIA /Tier 3 compliant , has a 6.8m monobloc straight industrial boom, a 5m industrial stick and an hydraulic swivel for the various attachments in use, including a Liebherr SG30 sorting grab. Automatic lubrication is included. The elevating operator’s cab can be raised to 5.27m for a better view of the material being handled.
The wheeled A904 C Litronic has four hydraulic outriggers and maximum lifting capacity of 4.5t at 10.5m radius. The industrial straight monobloc boom is 6.6m long and the machine is equipped with a Type SG 25 sorting grapple for direct attachment on to the 4.5m industrial angled stick with tipping kinematic and 360° hydraulic swivel.
All machines are powered by Stage IIIA /Tier 3 Liebherr engines.
