Jones Skips Invest in next generation Doppstadt Shredder
 Following their investment in two new Fuchs material handlers back in 2020, Jones Skips continue to choose Blue as they purchase the UK’s first Doppstadt Inventhor Type 6 Plus slow-speed shredder.
Set up in 1998 by Lyndon Rushby and his father, the company are now one of the leading skip hire providers in the West Midlands. Starting off with just a single lorry, the company saw steady growth before moving to a bigger site in 2012. Since moving premises their fleet has expanded from twelve lorries to forty-five, and their previous location is now used as a specialist biomass site.
Jones Skip Hire’s other services include waste disposal, contaminated waste disposal, special waste disposal, waste transfer station facilities, bulk haulage, tipper lorry hire and road sweeper hire. The company cater for all sorts of waste, both residential and from blue chip companies, with everything coming back to their site and nothing being tipped at third party companies. All their waste is processed through their plant, which was supplied by Blue, before being shipped out to various sites for waste to energy.
The company has been running Doppstadt DW 3060 slow- speed shredders for the past 10 years and decided it was time to invest in the next generation of Doppstadt slow-speed shredders. The Inventhor Type 6 sets the standards for shredding efficiency. Offering the best of both worlds, with all the highlights of the popular DW 3060 series, paired with the technological innovations from the Inventhor Type 9.
With the Type 6 being launched last year, Jones Skips have taken on the UK’s first ‘Plus’ model (previously known as the Biopower). The Plus model has ten extra shredding teeth (30 compared to twenty on the standard model) and boasts a
310kW CAT engine versus the 260kW MTU diesel engine on the standard Type 6. The extra teeth and more powerful engine allow Jones Skips to shred their materials down to a smaller size.
Jones Skips are using their new Type 6 to shred residual waste from the picking station before screening it through a Doppstadt SM 620K plus trommel. They also use the shredder to downsize wood before sending it over to their waste wood site. The customer was so impressed with the performance of the new Type 6 that they only had it on demo for one day before deciding to buy it.
