Mindful of the increasing emphasis now being placed on waste handling and recycling as part of Ireland’s drive to meet international goals aimed at protecting the environment, safeguarding species and combating climate change, Terex Ecotec distributor McHale Plant Sales is putting focus on their TWH 220 materials handler as a machine they say is an ‘essential cog’ in the waste handling and recycling chain.
Squarely aimed at Ireland’s growing body of waste management contractors, the TWH 220 is powered by a 95kW engine and weighs all of 21-tonnes, without attachments. Liveried in Terex Ecotec’s familiar white and contrasting black colours, its most obvious features are its unique long-reach boom, arm and 4-toothed grab attachment.
Operationally, the TWH 220 has a reach of 10.4 metres, and comes fully designed and specified for the job it must do. Its hydraulically powered high-rise cab is designed and functions to ensure that the operator has perfect visibility within the worksite at all times.
Compliant with EU emissions requirements, thanks to its Stage V compliant engine, its wheeled design makes it faster and more manoeuvrable around the yard or inside the recycling shed.
The Terex Ecotec TWH range extends from the 85kW entry-level TWH 216 model with its service weight of 12.1 tonnes and 9-metres reach to the top-of-the range 160kW, 35.5 tonnes, TWH 236. Other models are the TWH 220, 224, 226 and 228 with power outputs from 95kW to 129kW, weights from 21 tonnes to 30.6 tonnes, and reach from 10.4 metres to 12.6 metres.
Thanks to its iron clad reputation in the sector, and its broad range of handlers, shredders, and conveyors, Terex Ecotec equipment is a front line competitor in the waste handling sector across the globe.
Prominent waste processors here in Ireland who have recently equipped themselves with the TWH 220 include Wexford-based Murray Waste Recycling of Ferns. Sharing the stage with them is a significantly wider body of distinguished contractors playing a forefront role in ensuring Ireland stays what McHale Plant Sales general manager Denis McGrath calls ‘an even greener country than it is reputed to be’.
