Case 821F XR Waste Spec Wheel Nottinghamshire

Recycling Specialist Goes For Case

A trio of machines from Case Construction Equipment is helping to increase productivity and reduce fuel costs for one of the UK’s leading wood processing and recycling specialists.

Barnsley-based Case dealer Warwick Ward has supplied two new Case 821F XR Waste Spec Wheel Loaders and a TX130-45 Waste Spec Telehandler to R Plevin & Sons for use in their Elkesley processing plant in Nottinghamshire.

Elkesley is one of three sites that, in total, collect, process and distribute more than 600,000 tonnes of wood a year for use in producing biomass fuel, composite wood products and animal bedding.

The three machines are used to handle wood waste coming into the plant as well as processed fibre stockpiled at the site. Working 2 shifts per day up to 6 days per week in dry, dusty environments, the machines were chosen for their ability to deliver the required productivity in this environment.

The Case 821F XR wheel loader is equipped with a 6.7 litre Tier 4 interim certified diesel engine, high lift arms and 8 m³ buckets.

“The two 821F XR loading shovels are working two shifts from 6 o’clock in the morning to 10 o’clock at night over five days and sometimes six” says Dean Ashton, Group Engineering Director with Plevins.

“I look at having the least machines as possible and having them work as long as they can”, he adds.

To find the right machines, Plevins undertook an exhaustive selection process which eventually led to the company abandoning its previous policy. “We looked at every factor and came to the conclusion that Case was our best option for fuel returns, loading capability, manoeuvrability and durability” says Mr Ashton.

Plevins quickly formed a close working relationship with local Case dealer Warwick Ward. “Wood recycling business is highly specialised”, explains Mr Ashton. “We went through the specification in detail with Warwick Ward and they met that specification, met delivery times and have been extremely supportive at all stages”.

Another deciding factor for Plevins was the rear-mounted engine on the Case machines. “This meant the weight distribution was better and they don’t have to carry a big counterbalance weight” explains Mr Ashton.
