Wheels are in motion at waste management site

A waste management specialist has added a Hyundai HL940 wheel loader and a R125LCR-9A crawler excavator to its fleet to carry out challenging tasks in a hot and dusty setting.

Benfleet Waste, based in Essex, offers a total waste management solution from waste collection through to recycling and safe disposal.

Molson area sales manager Stuart Butler said, “Benfleet Waste is an existing Molson customer and has had Hyundai machines from us before so the team there know exactly what they are dealing with. The wheel loader and the crawler will be working inside within the covered waste hall and are well suited to that environment.”

The HL940 has an operating weight of 13.1tonnes and is powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 4 compliant diesel engine which Hyundai said delivers a maximum torque of 86Kg.m/1200rpm. The machine is said to be 10% more fuel-efficient than its predecessor.
