PMG Services, a leading provider of operated vehicle hire for the waste management sector has turned to Hyundai’s new generation A-series wheeled excavators to streamline processes at its waste recycling facility with environmental concerns at the top of the agenda.
The Bristol-based company is committed to alleviating the environmental impact of its customers’ operations from cleaning, to removal and safe disposal of waste, through to recycling of materials wherever possible. Last year it processed 18,000 tonnes of road sweeper and gully waste, diverting it away from landfill.
The company purchased the Hyundai HW210A wheeled excavator for loading its recycling plants and lorries with the stone and sand that is produced from the plant for reuse in the construction industry and tidying up the yard – and it is proving a vital tool for the company so far.
As PMG Services Assistant Operations Manager, Paul McGuinness said: “We’ve become highly dependent on the Hyundai HW210A wheeled excavator, it’s a crucial cog in the wheel. Without it, we would be lost!”
"[The HW210A] is a crucial cog in the wheel. Without it, we would be lost!" - Paul, Operations Manager
Established in 1990 PMG Services is the largest provider of specialist operated vehicle hire in the South-West. Its impressive fleet of modern road sweepers and tankers provide the best possible provision for waste management services. With its own waste recycling facility at the heart of its operations in Bristol, PMG Services recycles all the waste it collects – from gullies to construction sites and industrial landscapes to domestic settings.
From its upgraded, low emission, Stage V engine to its new, cutting-edge cabin design, the HW210A Wheeled Excavator is the heavy-duty excavator that will help your operators achieve new heights of productivity. The HW210A has been designed with state-of-the-art features and technology to make the operator feel in total control on any job site and in any application.
Paul continues: “The cab in the new A-series is a lot more spacious and offers great visibility. You’re higher up so you can see more. You’ve also got the 360-camera system with the radar which helps you to see who's around you. And it pings up when someone comes into your space. With the bigger windows and more glass, you can see further so you don’t have to rely on the cameras but they provide great reassurance when needed."
“The controls in the Hyundai are really smooth and sharp which is great for when you're operating. Productivity is also really good with the machine. It's a bigger machine and the bucket is bigger so you can carry more, load faster and it’s more powerful which makes the job a lot easier and quicker."
“We’ve taken out the service package with Molson Group and they come and do the maintenance on the machine, and we do daily checks and make sure that the machine’s safe and operational. To do the data checks on the new machine is a lot easier. I would strongly recommend Hyundai; the brand was recommended to us and I would pass that on as we’ve had great service. To us Hyundai stands for reliability and user-friendly machines.”
Joining the revolutionary Hyundai A Series excavator range, the HW210A Wheeled Excavator is equipped with a fuel efficient Cummins B6.7 Stage V engine. Its compact 6-cylinder configuration delivers impressive power and performance with 31% more peak torque and 5% more peak power than its predecessor.
Hyundai’s EPFC hydraulic system, in conjunction with variable power control, allows the machine to deliver the exact performance needed. The HW210A is the right machine for heavy-duty applications where manoeuvrability matters.
