French recycling specialist chooses Hyundai

By Steve Ducker25 February 2021

French company Dépôt Bennes Services (DBS) has purchased a Hyundai HW250MH wheeled material handler from Lyon-based dealer Curty Matériels as the latest addition to its equipment fleet.

DBS specialises collecting, recycling and reusing waste from construction sites and has been in business for more than 30 years.

The machine – with an operating weight of 26,100 kg (57,540 lb) – is equipped with a Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine and has a maximum digging reach of 10,700 mm (35 ft).

“Waste management is a vast industry,” said David Hernandez, whose father started the business.

“For our company, construction site waste accounts for 70 to 75% of our activity. We also manage the construction site waste generated when demolition work is performed. We recover all types of waste, whether as single products or mixed.”

When David wanted to add a wheeled material handler to his equipment fleet, he contacted Curty.

“Our fleet of construction equipment from Hyundai includes a 145LC-9 tracked excavator model, an HL970 wheel loader, an HL955 wheeled loader, two-wheeled material handlers, which comprise 200W7, 210W9MH, 210W9A, 170W9, and 170W7, and our HW250MH wheeled material handler,” he said.

“The machines are put through hard testing, and work under very harsh conditions for construction equipment. This highly specialist equipment is subjected to demanding loads but it is ideal for our activities. The first two equipment vehicles that we acquired have, as of today, notched up between 12,000 and 16,000 hours.”
