Italian waste and recycling company Decom has taken delivery of a 7.5 metre/4.3 tonne Bobcat TL43.80HF Waste Expert telehandler from local dealer Caldarola.
The TL43.80HF can take 1,800kg to its maximum height and 1,600kg to a maximum forward reach of four metres. It has an overall width of 2.3 metres, a length to the front carriage of 4.97 metres and a turning radius of 3.71 metres. The telehandler joins a number of Bobcat telehandlers in the company’s fleet including a six metre/2.6 tonne TL26.60 and a seven metre/3.8 tonne TL38.70HF.
Giuseppe Labbate, Decom plant manager, said: “We first purchased a Bobcat TL26.60 telescopic handler, which continues to be used inside our shed area, and then added a Bobcat TL38.70HF, which operates externally, for the loading of materials on to trucks. The TL43.80HF Waste Expert is even tougher and higher performing with reinforcements and protection, which are perfectly suited to our work, where the materials we handle are often at risk of falling on to the machine.”
Caldarola sales manager Marcello Masi, added: “In the past, Decom used another brand of telescopic handlers. Factors such as ease of use, the sturdiness, the three year warranty and our aftersales support, brought them closer to our brand. The reliability and durability of the telescopic handlers on the job has brought complete satisfaction for the customer."
Based in Matera, Decom handles the waste and recycling of the municipalities of Lucania and Apulia in the south of Italy. The company claims to be one of the first companies in Italy to achieve an ‘End of Waste’ certification for striving to recycle 98 percent of all material processed at its plant.
