China clay application for New Holland W300C

New Holland W300C

First W300C wheel loader sold in Spain delights customer with prospect of €20,000 annual fuel savings

THE first New Holland Construction W300C wheel loader sold in Spain was delivered in October to quarrying firm Arcigrés SL, in Valencia.

Featuring New Holland’s Tier 4 interim AdBlue technology, the 28-tonne W300C was chosen by the customer for its advanced performance, exceptional fuel efficiency, low emissions, and high productivity with fast cycles and 10-tonne bucket load capacity.


Arcigrés, a family business with more than 30 years’ experience in the extraction of gravel, sand and china clay, purchased the W300C as part of their fleet renewal programme.

At a time when the Spanish quarrying industry is in great difficulty, the company is investing in updating its fleet to ensure it has the high-productivity equipment it needs to run its operation as efficiently as possible.

‘Arcigrés have had the foresight to act quickly and to invest in new equipment, and as a result they have not only maintained, but improved their position in the market,’ commented Ximo Magalló, general manager of the local New Holland dealership.

The W300C is working in a china clay quarry with a daily production of around 7,000 cubic metres, where around 2,000 tonnes are loaded every day. The high-capacity bucket, capable of carrying up to 10 tonnes of china clay, helps to drive up the W300C’s productivity.

Jorge Gabarda Cortés of Arcigrés is delighted with the machine’s performance: ‘It’s wonderful,’ he said, ‘we load up a truck with just three buckets full of clay.’

Mr Cortés is also looking forward to impressive fuel savings with the new W300C. Thanks to New Holland’s Tier 4 interim AdBlue technology, the new machine uses 70 litres less fuel per day than the W270 wheel loader it replaces.

‘Considering that it works 10h a day, five days a week, we will save 16,800 litres of fuel,’ he said. ‘At a price around €1,19 per litre, we can save as much as €20,000 in the next 12 months.’

Arcigrés made their final choice of the model during a visit to New Holland’s Lecce plant in Italy, where they were able to test W300C and W270C prototypes.

‘We appreciated the visit very much,’ said Mr Cortés. ‘We were very impressed with the machines we tested and seeing the manufacturing processes up close gives you great confidence in the product.’
