New JCB JS20MH waste handler for WRC Recycling

Scottish waste-recycling firm reaping the rewards of new JS20MH machine

RENFREWSHIRE-based WRC Recycling are using a new JCB JS20MH materials handler to process construction and demolition waste at their recently opened £4 million state-of-the-art materials recycling facility in Inchinnan.

Powered by a JCB Stage V-compliant Dieselmax engine (123hp), the JS20MH materials handler features a hydraulically raised cab for increased visibility and a selector grab for sorting and loading material to a screening plant. 


This combination means WRC Recycling can process 40 tonnes/h – contributing to a 90% increase in tonnage productivity, compared with its previous operations. Other key features of the JS20MH waste handling machine include: a wide core radiator and reverse fan; climate control; five halogen work lights; and a heated air suspension seat.

Colin Blakely, commodities and operations director with WRC Recycling, said: ‘The JS20MH is performing very well and the operator is pleased with it, which is a key factor for us. The elevated cab provides maximum visibility to safely, quickly, and efficiently sort through the material before loading. We see it as a key machine to feed the plant and help us drive and increase our future productivity. The service support on the machine from Scot JCB is also second to none.’

The new JCB JS20MH model joins seven existing JCB 538-60 Agri Super Loadall telescopic handlers in the WRC Recycling fleet.
