Loading shovel delivers massive fuel savings to waste recycler

A new 721F wheel loader, supplied by Case Construction Equipment dealer Warwick Ward of Barnsley, is achieving massive fuel savings for Widnes based waste processing company, WSR Recycling.

Don Bradfield, recycling manager with WSR Recycling, reports that without compromising on performance or productivity, the new loader is expected to save thousands of pounds in fuel costs compared with the machine it replaces.

“We’ve been keeping detailed fuel consumption records for all our machines for the past 18 months” says Mr Bradfield, “Already we’ve noticed significant savings with the Case 721F over the other shovels we are using.

The Case machine uses only 10 litres per hour. Given the hours that this machine will do (we double-shift it seven days a week) that adds up to a considerable saving over the year” he adds. Mr Bradfield estimates that the saving could amount to as much as £6,000 per year.

WSR bought its first Case, an 821E, in January 2011 adding a second machine six months later - a new 721F with attachments that include a quick hitch, 4 m³, grab bucket and silage forks.

The wheel loaders are used to stockpile and handle the 112,000 tonnes of waste that it recycles every year. The company receives, sorts and processes all kinds of material including timber, metals, plastics, household waste, demolition waste and industrial waste of which more than 85% is recycled for further use.

“Normally, you’ve got a twin radiator with a reverse fan, but here we’ve got a design that’s like a cube – so you’ve got the air coming in from the front, back and from the top and the bottom” explains Mr Bradfield. “That keeps the engine cool, especially in the environment we’re working in, where there’s a lot of dust. We’ve had no overheating problems.”

Comfort Combined with Impressive Performance

The new loader has had a warm reception from Mr Bradfield’s machine operators who say they like the comfortable cab and well-thought-out controls.

“The machine power, all-round visibility, plus the efficient lights, reversing camera, aircon and heated seat is excellent and the SCR technology ensures an efficient and comfortable operation” says Mr Bradfield.
