Reston Waste Management buys HyundaiPublished 30/12, 2020 at 09:58
Reston Waste Management will be celebrating its 20th anniversary next year, marking the event with a new Hyundai HL940A loading shovel.
Andrew Reston invested in his first Hyundai machine, a 14t HX140LC in 2018, proving to be a sound investment for the company. “We purchased our first Hyundai two years ago from Hyundai dealer Ernest Doe. We opted for the Hyundai brand as we had heard that they were very good, solid, and reliable machines. We were getting a poor service from our existing brand of machine and very little support from the dealer, so it was a good time to renew our construction equipment fleet. We have since bought another three Hyundai machines from Ernest Doe, the latest being the brand new HL940A loading shovel which is an excellent machine. Ernest Doe have been fantastic and we have a great relationship with both service and sales. We are already looking at purchasing another two Hyundai’s next year.”
Reston Waste’s HL940A was ordered with extra features to cope in the harsh conditions of a waste recycling facility, including bolt on demolition cab guards and front light and suppression guarding. An automatic fire suppression system was also included as well as an ‘AAVM’ camera which allows a full 360° view of outside the cab, which is essential when working in a potentially hazardous environment. Jason Bosdet, Reston Waste’s assistant transfer station manager gave the new loader a glowing report. “The Hyundai loading shovel is an excellent machine and it really stands up to the tough waste environment where it has to handle unstable loads and unstable underfoot conditions. It’s also proved to be fuel efficient, which for such a powerful machine, is impressive! It’s certainly the best model of loader we have owned and I have operated a number of different brands.“
“We can’t fault any of the Hyundai machines in our fleet; they rarely have any issues and there is very little downtime. Also, should there be an issue, the Ernest Doe plant service engineers are with us the next day. I can’t recommend Ernest Doe enough and the company is by far the best plant dealer we have worked with.” As the company prepares for its 20th anniversary, Andrew Reston has committed to a €1.3M investment in a new fleet of Hyundai Construction Equipment to help support future growth.
