17/03/2014 The MRC took delivery at Tamala Park of a new dump truck to assist with its operations. The $400,000 Komatsu HM300-2 Articulated Dump truck has a payload of 30 tonnes and is fitted with a tail gate to lower spillage around the site. The Komatsu is fitted with tier 3 low emission engine and will be used most of the time to cart the crushed limestone daily cover to the tip-face. “Compared to the truck it is replacing the vision, handling and ride is so much better. Although the truck it is replacing was only five years old, the technological advancements have just improved so much”, said Mike Myring, MRC’s Landfill Manager.
