Terex TL260 wheel loader fits the bill at waste transfer site

J & J Stanley Ltd had a Terex TL260 wheel loader on trial as a possible loader for their waste and recycling centre. At the end of the trial period, managing director Gordon Stanley refused to return it and told Terex Distributon Limited (TDL): “Don’t bother to send a truck to collect the machine, come and pick up a cheque.”

J & J Stanley runs waste and recycling facilites in the Tyne & Wear area and was looking for a wheel loader for its new 2.5 a

waste transfer site. Afer trying various machines, the company’s machine operator, Albert Perkins, chose the Terex.

“We wanted a compact machine for sortng and stockpiling, and also to load wagons and the recycling plant with wood, soil, constructon waste, paper, cardboard and household refuse,” says Mr. Stanley. “The Terex is compact and fast, with excellent visibility for the operator and is very good on fuel,” he adds.

With its 2.6 m³ general purpose bucket on the ground, the 14.4 tonne loader has an overall length of less than 7.25 m and a turning radius of 6.15 m (at outside bucket edge) - ideal size for productve work in restricted areas.
