Trent Valley

Invest In the

Future

Trent Valley Recycling Limited has been

trading for the past five years within the

North East of England under the banner

of Tees Valley Recycling Limited who have

been offering recycling and waste man-

agement solutions to all types of busi-

ness and commerce.

Operating on a 6 acre site, Trent

Valley Recycling have a fully enclosed

licensed waste recycling facility which is

able to accept all types of waste for

treatment and processing. To ensure that all the

waste on site is handled effectively, Trent Valley Recycling

made the decision to invest in new equipment and with

a clear understanding of what they wanted, they set

about identifying the right machines for the job. Gavin

said

“Loading height was a big factor in choosing the

right machine as we are often required to load

high sided vehicles along with normal day to day

waste carriers, i.e. roro’, skip wagons and 8

wheeled tippers.”

Gavin called upon local dealer Warwick Ward

(Machinery) Ltd, whose loading shovel expertise meant

they were able to take a Case 721FXR on heavy duty

axles (as standard) and extend the extra reach arms even

further.

This modification gives ‘Super Reach’ with only mar-

ginally reducing the loading capacity of the machine.

One of the most important factors in the decision to

buy a Case wheel loader is the fact that the cooling cube

is situated directly behind the cab with an auto reverse

fan as standard. This ensures no downtime due to clean-

ing or overheating.

ABBA takes a chance on Midi

UK rental company ABBA Plant Hire has invested in a

new 10 tonne JCB midi excavator, the 100C-1 model.

The 100C-1 is based on the frame of the 8.6 tonne

86C-1 midi machine, but with a more powerful engine,

larger dig end and increased hydraulic capacity to boost

performance.

ABBA plant hire manager Nick

Howe said,

“We see the 10-tonne JCB midi

excavator as a machine with great

potential. It is a unique size of

machine with good power - while

the lower operating weight means

less damage to the ground surface.

“The machine is proving ver-

satile – able to load our eight-

wheel tippers – as well as tradition-

al midi tasks on site. It brings the

proven JCB quality to a new weight

class that is easy to transport, com-

fortable for operators but brings

power to confined sites. ”
