50 UP! THE NWH GROUP BECOMES THE BIGGEST SINGLE USER OF HARSH SKIPS AND HOOKS IN THE UK
50 UP! HARSH REACHES ITS HALF CENTURY OF BODYWORK SALES TO THE NWH GROUP
Thanks to both the recent acquisition of two new 18t skiploaders and an 8×4 hookloader – as well as placing further orders for both types -The NWH Group of Dalkeith will shortly acquire its 50th vehicle fitted with HARSH bodywork.
“This is quite a milestone and confirms The NWH Group as the biggest single user of our skips and hooks in the UK” says Colin Hayes, Business Development Manager for HARSH in Scotland and Ireland, adding “we are naturally delighted that HARSH has now become The NWH Group’s preferred supplier for waste handling bodywork.”
Built on MAN chassis, the latest two skiploaders to go on the road also offer HARSH full remote control for loading and unloading skips on and off the skiploader deck.
By using a wireless handset, the truck’s driver is therefore able to stand in any position around the vehicle to ensure the safest possible operation with regard to avoiding potential obstacles and third parties.
Precise placement of skips is also made much easier too, a particular benefit when working in confined environments such as urban streets and residential building sites.
Reflecting all these advantages, the wireless remote control system is now included in the standard specification on all new HARSH skiploader models. The traditional lever controls still remain, thereby guaranteeing a fail – safe backup.
“HARSH skiploaders impress because they offer not just the features we want but also because they are tough, strong and very reliable” says Craig Williams, Group Operations Director for The NWH Group. “Of particular significance, HARSH can also retro-fit their remote control system to our previous skiploaders having just the traditional bodyside levers. HARSH’s ability to pro-actively work with us and support their products over the long term is what really sets them apart from their competitors.”
Looking to The NWH Group’s new 32t HARSH hookloader, also built on a MAN chassis, the same virtues of rugged construction and inherent durability also apply. For the driver, picking up and dropping off containers is made as easy as possible thanks to powerful, fast-acting hydraulics operated by a simple to use push – button control panel inside the cab.
In recent years the second – generation family business has rapidly grown to become one of the UK’s leading players in the recycling and waste management industry. Collecting waste with its fleet of trade refuse, skip, tipper, grab and walking floor articulated vehicles, its skip trucks work in both commercial and domestic applications whilst its hookloaders are more typically used in the movement of bulk waste.
With ten sites serving the whole of Scotland and North East England, The NWH Group’s mission is to change its industry for the benefit of the planet. The company is a progressive business committed to creating a sustainable future by improving the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of its communities.
