Benfleet waste no time.
Essex waste management and skip hire firm Benfleet Waste has extended its fleet of machines with the introduction of a new Hyundai wheel loader and an excavator.
It has taken a Hyundai HL940 wheel loader and a R125LCR-9A crawler for use at its depots around Essex.
Area sales manager Stuart Butler worked with the Benfleet Waste team to focus exactly om their requirements and work out what machines would offer the best value for money.
“Benfleet Waste is an existing Molson customer and has had Hyundai machines from us before so the team there know exactly what they are dealing with. The wheel loader and the crawler will be working inside within the covered waste hall and are well suited to that environment. It can get very hot and dusty in that environment and so ease of maintenance and cab comfort is very important. These two machines score well on both those points,” says Stuart.
The Hyundai HL 940 has an operating weight of 13.1tonnes and is powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 4 compliant diesel engine which delivers a maximum torque of 86Kg.m/1200rpm.
With a heaped bucket capacity of 2.3cu m and a bucket breakout force of 11.25tonnes it boasts a maximum straight tipping load of 10tonnes with an overall width with bucket of 2.6m, overall length of 7.43m, overall height 5.25m and a maximum dumping clearance of 2.78m.
With more powerful performance, the HL940 wheel loader is 10% more fuel-efficient than its predecessor helping to maximize productivity and demonstrating higher value in tough environments.
The new Hyundai machines offer operators provide more comfortable cabin space for operators with their low-vibration, low-noise, and superior safety design.
Its state-of-the-art noise reduction technology means it delivers just 64dB of noise in the cab, promising a better, more comfortable, healthier and more effective working space for the operator.
“I am glad that we have been able to help Benfleet Waste with sourcing the correct machines for their sites. They will work perfectly for the team,” says Stuart.
