Waste company BTU Hartmeier Entsorgung has added a fifth Hyundai wheel loader to its fleet. The company disposes of waste from construction sites around Munich, and ensures the certified treatment, classification and recycling of waste materials and recyclables. Four Hyundai wheel loaders have been in use since 2010 and another was added this year - a 19.5 T, 168 kW HL960A equipped with a 7 cubic meter high-lift tipping bucket. Johann Hartmeier Jr, whose responsibilities include the fleet of 20 construction and transfer loading machines and 80 trucks, opted for the modern Stage V machine from Hyundai because of its power, fuel consumption and ergonomics. The rapid service from Hyundai Construction Equipment service partner Fischer & Schweiger was another decisive factor in the purchase. Features include solid rubber tyres which make for easy working in often sharp-edged recycling material. The high-lift tipping bucket is required for loading high-edged and walking floor semitrailers. The tipping height of the high-lift bucket is 4,200 mm. The machine is in use around 2,500 operating hours a year, and permanent drivers ensure excellent availability.
