AGRIVERT CASE STUDY – USED TROMMEL
Agrivert impressed with used machine performance two years down the line
It’s been a case of ‘so far so good’ for leading organic waste provider Agrivert having purchased a used trommel screener from leading mobile recycling equipment supplier, CRJ services. Agrivert secured the purchase of one of CRJ’s hire fleet SM 620 Doppstadt trommels back in March 2015 and haven’t looked back since. The SM 620 has gone onto perform above all expectations for Agrivert, delivering a consistent and reliable performance across its composting sites down in Oxfordshire.
Dave Martin, Greenwaste Manager at Agrivert commented;
“Our tonnage had expanded during peak season, and despite already hiring from CRJ to cover ourselves, we required an extra screener to give us more flexibility, as we operate three open window compost sites across Oxfordshire. Rob (Director at CRJ Services) offered us a solution, giving us the opportunity to purchase one of his existing hire fleet machines. Having dealt with CRJ Services for several years, I was assured of the quality I would get from the trommel in the long-term, therefore decided to snap up Rob’s offer with little hesitation at all”
Speaking of the machine’s performance, Dave Martin was pleased with its progress;
“It has performed well and been very reliable – so far so good. I had every confidence due to the fact the trommel had been stripped down completely. Many of the parts had been replaced prior to purchase including the hydraulic motors and belts, and even the surface paint had been resprayed.”
Rob Symons, Director at CRJ Services Ltd commented;
“I was very happy to receive the text from Dave letting me know the trommel was continuing to excel in screening the compost. The Doppstadt drum screens really are the pinnacle when it comes to delivering accurate sizing of material, and as an organisation we really try to take care of our fleet machines right from day one, maximising durability by providing a comprehensive service for every 250 hours of work”.
Dave Martin, further commented;
“The service I get from Rob and all of the team has always been excellent. Our sites are very busy especially in our peak season, and I know from experience that CRJ are aware of the urgency required when additional machines are needed and react accordingly. The hire machines are industry proven and reliable. We also appreciate the fast availability of spare parts for our fleet and the competitive prices”
