Warwick Ward supply more Terex Ecotec machines to the Ashcourt Group.

With strategically located sites spread through Yorkshire and the North East the Ashcourt Group has the ability to service both small, and large- scale projects.

An established fully licensed and compliant Waste Management Company:
Ashcourt have operated a busy recycling operation for the last 20 years on a 25-acre site in Hull processing general waste, wood, green waste, soil, crushed brick, concrete & inert product.

The company use a fleet of recycling machines however with some obsolete machines needing replacement the company turned to Warwick Ward to refresh the fleet.

Ashcourt already had a relationship with Warwick Ward who had recently supplied Keestrack Mobile Crushers for their quarry operations and also Case Loaders in the Northeast.

Therefore, it made complete sense to expand the relationship based on the size of the Warwick Ward business coupled with the ability to provide the back-up with their service teams, the brand itself [Terex Trommel previously supplied] had already ingratiated itself.

Terex Ecotec & Warwick Ward:

A Terex Ecotec TBG630 High-Speed Shredder along with two Terex TWH224 Material Handlers [with a further 2 going to another site] were supplied by Warwick Ward who are based in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Warwick Ward had earlier supplied a Terex Ecotec TDS820 Slow-Speed Shredder which will work in tandem with the new TBG630.

In 2016, Warwick Ward was awarded the UK distributorship for the full Terex Ecotec range, which further strengthened their position within the waste sector which has established a very strong working relationship with many of the UK's largest waste recycling companies.

Terex Ecotec is an industry leader in designing and manufacturing of wood processing, biomass, and recycling equipment. Terex Ecotec offers a comprehensive range of products including, trommels, slow speed, medium and high-speed waste shredders, waste handlers, metal separators, tracked stackers and recycling screens with Spaleck technology. The range of innovative machines provides efficient production, low operational costs, and ease of maintenance for each customer.

A very versatile machine:
Chris Cameron – Site Supervisor, commented, “The Terex Shredder computer system is incredible! The way it controls itself is phenomenal. As you load it will adjust itself with the feed chains guiding the material in at the feed rate. A feed wheel then lifts up to guide the material, then the rotor which is actually shredding talks to the feed wheel to control the speed of the feed.

“As we have a biomass contract with a power station the machine programme is written for this specific commodity. We also trialled several different screens to achieve the most effective production. The screen set-up is straightforward and can be achieved in under 30 minutes.”

Terex TWH224 Material Handlers
Chris then went on to discuss the merits of the Terex TWH224 Material Handlers. “We chose this specific model because of its size and reach. Inside the shed, you can cover virtually all of the floor with hardly any movement of the handler.

“From an operator’s view it is brilliant, noticeably quiet, and a very well thought out interior cab design, more space, better vision cameras everywhere, and a high rise up to 5.5 metres. You can clearly see a lot of thought has gone into the machine.”


Richard Dixon Area Sales Manager Recycling – Warwick Ward, commented, “One of the things we do is to help the customer to adapt a specification of the wear parts to get the best out of them. One of the things we are considering is to trial different wear parts to optimise the cost of production.

“We are currently working on a project with Ashcourts and Terex as we are not just in the business of selling machines, but we are constantly searching for better wear parts that will give the customer machine longevity which is all part of the ongoing relationship.”

Richard, continued, “All our installations are carried out by a Warwick Ward qualified engineer who signs off on every aspect of the machine alongside the coaching log which creates an audit trail for us.”

John Holberry – Yard & Freight Director of the Ashcourt Aggregates, “From the very start our relationship with Warwick Ward has been great. Constant communication has ensured that the machines are fit-for-purpose and well maintained. We can always rely on their professional and reliable back-up.”

Terex Ecotec TBG 630 High Speed Shredder:
Ecotec's TBG 630 High Speed Shredder at the Hull operation is the ultimate processing machine for medium to large scale biomass and green waste processors. Powered by a 661HP V8 Scania engine, the TBG 630 has been designed to give operators unrivalled production rates and ease of maintenance. The open fronted feeder uses heavy duty drag chains, a powerful feed wheel and an unrestricted feeder design to effectively utilise the 1,100mm diameter x 1,750mm wide swinging hammer rotor. This robust rotor comes with a wide selection of hammer designs and customisable screens which ensure end product material specification is met.

Metal contaminants are always a concern when using a high-speed machine; the TBG 630 has an intelligent screen opening system to quickly discharge such contaminants reducing the risk of accidental damage. The unique machine layout and maintenance catwalks offer unrestricted access to both sides of the engine making servicing a simple task. Industry leading conveyor discharge height of 5.1m maximises stockpile capacity and allows loader operators to easily remove processed material.

Terex TWH 224 Waste Handler:
The Terex range of waste handlers are purpose-built for the recycling industry to perform effective, high volume material handling duties in open terrain or indoor settings. Offering stability and a high load capacity the Ecotec TWH224 Waste Handler is an all-rounder incorporating turbo efficiency. With its diverse applications and near legendary manoeuvring speed, the TWH224 really does rev up the recycling business.

Generously proportioned fuel tanks and extremely durable components ensure that the waste handlers’ productivity is maximised. Even when operated within an extended work radius; loading hydraulics that are beautifully smooth, yet precise and swift; structural robustness and an engine that is powerful as it is economical – the TWH224 boast features that are now intrinsic to recycling plants.
