Clearaway Ltd., a recycling company in the UK, recently acquired a new SENNEBOGEN 821 M material handler. The machine is being used to presort materials and feed their shredder. 

According to Paul Whitehair, the Managing Director of the operation, this machine is perfectly suited to this job.

Clearaway Ltd., about an hour outside of London, England, offers the marketplace a full service in terms of the recycling and disposal of household and industrial waste in South Essex and the surrounding area. The company has a range of roll-on roll-off bins that can be delivered to customers' site and then regularly exchanged and emptied as part of their delivery and pick-up service.

In 2018, after 10 years of experience in waste recycling, the company knew it was time to invest in a new and expanded recycling and handling site for their existing operation. The decision was clear cut for Paul Whitehair, "We needed to expand our on-site capacity. With our growing customer base, we were soon going to be out of space and lose our operational efficiency we had when we first started. For this reason, we decided to procure a new material handler from SENNEBOGEN and we are very pleased we did."

The Sennebogen 821 E material handler has a 36 ft. (11 m) reach, and from almost 18 ft. (5.5 m) in the air, the operator has an unobstructed view of his working area.

On the job since June 2018, the new mobile SENNEBOGEN 821 E material handler has developed into an all-purpose machine for the company. It is used to feed the company's shredder, as well as presorting materials from the bins and loading trucks. 

For the operator, one of the best things about his new SENNEBOGEN is the elevating comfortable Maxcab with it protective grate. The latest generation is larger and is truly a "great place to work". Its view height of around 18 ft. (5.5 m) along with a number of safety cameras gives him a clear view of his working environment.

The SENNEBOGEN 821 E Series is equipped with a 36 ft. (11 m) long handling attachment and the reliable hydraulics are driven by an economical 140 HP (104 kW) Tier 4 Cummins diesel. Their material handler is also equipped with a 650-l sorting grab.

For Paul Whitehair, it is clear, "The SENNEBOGEN 821 M we have is the ideal machine for our requirements. Above all, the support supplied by the local SENNEBOGEN dealer, is perfect. Personally, my visit to the SENNEBOGEN plants in Straubing and Wackersdorf was what convinced me. I have never before seen such well organized and clean production of purpose-built machines - that impressed me."
