Mick George gives top marks to Hyva24 August 2016

Recycling and waste management business Mick George, of Huntingdon, has selected Hyva as its preferred supplier for tippers, skiploaders and hookloaders.

The award-winning operator’s 2016 upgrade programme will see up to 100 new vehicles joining its fleet.

Two new recent additions were Hyva skiploaders, built on Mercedes 18-tonne gvw Econic chassis. These feature low entry cabs for enhanced driver visibility and will operate in and around Cambridge city centre.

Instrumental in Mick George securing a waste disposal contract from all Cambridge University sites, the operator has ordered a further five of the same model.

For more general purpose skiploader operations, the company is adding 30 Hyva skiploader units mounted to DAF LF chassis, as these trucks offer both increased ground clearance and lower unladen weight.

Hyva has also supplied five of its latest Titan models for Mick George’s extensive 8x4 hookloader fleet. The Titan’s fully bolted construction makes installation, maintenance and repair considerably easier, reducing downtime and improving productivity.

More than 50 tippers form part of the 2016 fleet upgrade, featuring both steel and aluminium bodies built by either Wilcox or Fruehauf. In every case, the chosen tipping gear is always Hyva’s latest FC137 which combines both light weight and the ability to handle any heavy duty work with ease.

With proven reliability in any tipping application from sand and gravel to muckshifting, the 450kgs FC137 is a separate ram and tank design which again saves weight, reduces fitting time and lowers upkeep costs.
