Waste-management firm strengthens equipment fleet with mix of Wastemaster wheel loaders and a JS20MH materials handler

A LEADING independent skip hire and waste-management company has invested more than £2 million in new JCB waste-handling machines. Purchased by London-based Reston Waste, the new models include JCB 427 Wastemaster wheeled loading shovels, 131X and 140X tracked excavators, and a JS20MH materials handler. 

The machines, supplied by dealer Greenshields JCB, have been put straight to work at Reston Waste’s transfer site in Wimbledon. The wheeled loading shovels are being used to pile materials, load bulk aggregates on to articulated lorries, and load the trommel which separates the waste before it reaches the picking line. The excavators perform a range of roles, including pre-sorting the larger items from the waste before it goes on the picking line and loading the hopper belt for the picking line through the picking station.

 

Reston Waste transfer station manager, Josh Reston, said: ‘The main thing when running a waste transfer station is minimizing downtime. We work our machines relentlessly and operate in a harsh environment, so we need ones up to the challenge. The performance of the new JCBs is of a very high standard, with next to no downtime. They have all our required safety features, making each operator’s job as protected and efficient as possible.’

The JCB 427 Wastemaster wheel loader is fully loaded with a powerful and efficient Stage V emission-compliant Cummins engine, a choice of loader arms and axle options, and a fuel-saving auto engine shutdown feature. The unique five-speed gearbox comes as standard and the 427 boasts one of the most operator-friendly cabs on the market featuring two power modes for added versatility.

Operating throughout London, Reston Waste employ up to 150 people at two transfer stations, with a third site opening shortly in Epsom. The company prides itself on diverting 100% of its waste materials away from landfill.
