We are excited to announce that Countrystyle has further improved on-site handling efficiency at its flagship facility at Sittingbourne, Kent, with the introduction of four JCB 457 wheel loaders.

As the local provider for specialist waste recycling, haulage and recovery for a range of industrial products, including plasterboard, wood, general waste, dry mixed recyclables, organic green and food wastes, two of the new JCB models will be deployed within our dedicated plasterboard recycling building and the remaining two units will operate within the wood yard at Ridham Dock.

As part of our ongoing commitment to promoting health and safety within the waste sector, the dedicated JCB machines working within the plasterboard processing plant have been supplied with BMAir cabin air filtration technology. The BMAir system prevents polluted air entering the cabin and allows air quality within the operator’s working space to be continuously monitored.

In addition, the new wheel loaders have been supplied with automatic dual agent fire suppression systems, supplied by Fireward, LED lighting and foam filled tyres to ensure on-site safety and machine uptime are optimised. Featuring a powerful MTU diesel engine that meets Tier 4/Stage IV emissions, the JCB 457 wheel loader is designed to work at sites where large volumes of materials need to be handled. It is available in a variety of model configurations – all built with safety, efficiency, ease of use and maintenance, productivity, performance, reliability and comfort in mind.

Neil Webb, Countrystyle’s Engineering & Project Manager, says: “We already operate a number of JCB machines – including shovel loaders, telehandlers and excavators – at our Sittingbourne site so we had no hesitation in turning to JCB for our new wheel loaders. The build quality of the JCB machines is second to none.”

JCB dealer, Greenshields JCB, supplied the new equipment and will also provide ongoing full maintenance support.
