UK waste management company H.R. Skip Hire has taken delivery of the first 3.8 tonne/ seven metre Bobcat TL38.70HF Waste Expert telehandler in the UK from the company’s long-standing distributor AMS Bobcat.
Part of the four-model Waste Expert range launched at bauma – see: Bobcat waste expert telehandlers – the TL38.70HF is powered by a Stage IV 130HP diesel engine and is designed to cope with the tough working conditions of waste and recycling sites. The new range includes extra-large boom noses, standard boom cushioning and extra protection for hydraulic cylinders, windshield, roof, lights and the fuel and oil tanks. The telehandler has also been fitted with heavy duty Camso TLH 792S 13 R24 tyres.
Barry Howe, one of the owners at H. R. Skip Hire, said: “We decided to purchase the Bobcat telehandler to meet increasing demand, particularly in the summer period at the very busy waste transfer station at our headquarters in Sheffield. We were particularly impressed with the visibility, compactness, boom speed, protection and ease of use of the TL38.70 Waste Expert machine. To back this up, Chris Scott, Sales Manager at AMS Bobcat, provided us with a fantastic package with extended warranty and a very attractive finance programme.”
Established in 2005, family-run H.R. Skip Hire provides commercial and domestic skips with four, six and eight tonne capacities, as well as a range of grab wagons throughout the Sheffield area. It also runs its own environment agency registered waste transfer station for the disposal of all processed waste including soil, concrete and metal.
