 Material Handling
 Contract Plant Hire provide cost effective machinery solutions to customers nationwide. Serving industries from construction to demolition, metal recycling and waste management to civils, plant hire, rail, and ports. Providing any make and any model to any sector, the contract hire specialists provide hassle free solutions which are proving ever popular across the UK. The Atlas 350MH has been specified to suit H Ripley & Co’s particular requirements, not only specified accordingly but supplied with total peace of mind too.
Equipped with a 6-cylinder diesel engine, the Atlas 350MH offers 245 HP whilst meeting Tier 5 emissions regulations with ease. Boasting an 18m reach fitted with the popular Atlas E751 600L grab, the 36-ton material handler is ideal for sorting and loading trucks and boats alike.
The German built material handlers splits its time between the dockside where it loads boats on a regular basis and the yard where bulk tippers are serviced and general yard duties. Sitting on a set of super elastic tyres, the large undercarriage is equipped with four outriggers to provide a wide and stable platform whilst the larger 8.2-ton counterweight provides increased stability when loading ships at full stretch. Additional belly plates have been added to protect from errant pieces of metal.
In its first week of operation down at Newhaven Docks the machine was set straight to work loading a pile of material onto a large ocean-going vessel.
Stu Lambert of Contract Plant Rental comments, “The decision to work with CPR for both machines was a logical one. CPR were able to provide a brand-new machine with all servicing and maintenance included for a fixed monthly cost over a fixed period. This inevitably enables H Ripley and Co to easily budget for new contracts.”
