Whittaker Metals of Mansfield have recently taken delivery of a new Ing. Bonfiglioli "transportable" car baler, supplied by E H Hassell and Sons Ltd (UK and Eire Ing. Bonfiglioli dealer).
Darren Whittaker (owner) "We have been thinking about a car baler for a number of years. We had heard of the benefits of being able to process more vehicles and stack them more safely in the yard. In addition to being able to get around three times more cars into a transport vehicle when compared to full sized depolluted cars. We liked the idea of the machine being transportable via a roll on / roll off vehicle."
Having looked at various manufacturers the clear winner was the Ing. Bonfiglioli "transportable" baler. "We had heard good things about the product and liked the fact that the new dealer was an established company in the scrap metal equipment market, E H Hassell & Sons Ltd. We went down to their premises to take a look at a baler, sorted out a finance deal via JCB Finance, and the machine was delivered and installed in a matter of weeks.
We have now been using the baler for around 6 weeks, and can honestly say I am very impressed. Once we get going we can bale around 20 cars per hour, the consistency of the finished bale is very impressive, even when you leave the engines and gear boxes in the cars. This allows us to stack the bales in our yard, much more safely than before."
Ing. Bonfiglioli are a family owned and managed company, with its manufacturing plant in Bologna Italy, they produce a range of scrap metal processing equipment and cranes for HGV's.
Ian Hassell, the Managing Director of E H Hassell & Sons said: "We have now added the Ing. Bonfiglioli product range to our existing Sennebogen material handlers, allowing us to better service and support the scrap metal industry, our key market."
Founded in 1974, E H Hassell & Sons still remains a family owned and run company. From its location in Stoke on Trent, it provides the complete solution for the scrap metal industry, being the UK and Eire dealer for Ing. Bonfiglioli scrap metal processing equipment and Sennebogen material handlers.
