FIRST VOLVO EW200E MH IN SWITZERLAND HELPS HANDLE WASTE EFFICIENTLY
Two machines from Volvo CE are helping Swiss waste and recycling specialist, Waser Entsorgung AG with its ambition to handle waste in the most environmentally-friendly way.
Swiss disposal and recycling specialist, Waser Entsorgung AG expects the best from its machines. Across its five disposal centres, the company sorts waste from private, commercial and industrial customers, returning it back to the materials cycle in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.
Waser Entsorgung relies on a fleet of machines to support this vital work – and they now have two new machines from Volvo CE at their Therwil site, a EW200E MH material handler, the first to be used in Switzerland and an L60H wheel loader - which are already proving their worth.
HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE CAB FOR IMPROVED VISIBILITY
Designed to handle even the toughest working conditions and developed specifically for the waste and recycling industry, the Volvo EW200E MH is a powerful and reliable wheeled excavator. The first of its kind in Switzerland, the machine is mainly being used to sort waste material of all kinds, including construction rubble, bulky goods and scrap metal.
Based on its successful big brother, the EW240E MH, and weighing in at 22.7 tonnes, the excavator is powered by a 129kW (173 hp) Stage V Volvo engine and has a reach up to 10 metres thanks to a choice of 4-metre long gooseneck arm or a 3.5-metre long sorting arm. The machine can be configured as required so customers can optimise productivity for their specific application.
POWERFUL MACHINES FOR LIMITED SPACE
The second new addition is a Volvo L60H wheel loader, which is mainly used to move and feed the various materials into the systems at Waser and to load this onto trucks. A robust workhorse, the L60H offers exceptional stability thanks to a new optimised loading unit weight and redesigned counterweight. Torque Parallel (TP) linkage offers high breakout, tilt in and lifting forces and keeps the attachments parallel throughout the lifting range for exceptional load stability and easy bucket filling.
Available with a variety of purpose-built attachments, including grapples, sweepers, snow ploughs and material handling arms, the Volvo L60H can be used for a variety of applications.
Volvo machines have been an important part of Waser AG’s operation for more than half a decade. The firm now has six Volvo excavators and three Volvo wheel loaders in operation across its five locations.
