Paper recycler streamlines with two telehandler and wheeled loader

Pulp Friction of Erith in Kent was established in 1995 and has grown steadily to become one of the South East's leading commercial waste management companies.
The two Kramer machines, supplied by local dealer Hydrex, consist of a 4507 telehandler and an 880 wheeled loader. Both units feature the company's proven 4-wheel steer and 4-wheel drive system, which makes them particularly suitable for operation in confined and difficult access areas such as those found at Pulp Friction's recycling centres.
Commenting on the new acquisitions, co-owner and operations director Ben Cox said: "We like to use heavy-duty, reliable machines on our busy sites in order to minimise downtime. Also, besides its outstanding manoeuvrability, the driver of the 880 has superb all-round visibility which is extremely important where it is based because of the number of operatives we have hand sorting material on the ground."
The 4507 telehandler is also proving to be ideal for its job because, despite its compact dimensions, it is able to place and push waste paper into tall stockpiles, which saves valuable space, and compress material into bulkers to ensure maximum capacity is achieved for transport. As Mr. Cox says, "It does everything we need at a fraction of the cost of a conventional wheeled loader large enough to perform the same tasks."
The 880 is the largest wheeled loader in Kramer's range and is powered by a Deutz turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine developing 90 kW (122 hp) and offers a maximum payload of 4200 kg. The 4507 telehandler is powered by a similar sized engine and can lift 3800 kg to a maximum height of 7100 mm and has a useful turning radius of just 3600 mm.
