JCB wheeled excavator for Grist Environmental07 February 2020

Waste management and recycling specialist Grist Environmental has taken delivery of a JCB JS200W wheeled excavator that will work on its waste transfer site in Devizes, Wiltshire.

The vehicle, which weighs in at around 22 tonnes, is being put to work loading wood into slow and high-speed shredders, and is also being used to load articulated trucks and walking floor trailers coming on to the site.

The JS200W was supplied by local dealer Holt JCB and is a straight replacement for an existing excavator, which was part of Grist’s 25-strong fleet supplied over the years by another manufacturer.

Among its features are four operating work modes (auto, economy, precision and lifting), a 70/30 front screen split for a clear view forwards, and JCB's LiveLink telematics system that provides remote monitoring capabilities.

James Grist, director of Grist Environmental, says: "The service from Holt JCB is just spot on and it has been a real pleasure to do business with them. We looked to JCB and also had quotes from competitors, but the decision was not down to price but the warranty and service back up. Those offered by other suppliers saw benefits start to drop off after the first year. JCB however offered a full warranty for the full length of time.”
