Brown Recycling Ltd is no stranger to Iveco lineup with Daily 7.2-tonne, Eurocargo 18-tonne, and Iveco S-Way tractor units earning their keep on the Stoke-on-Trent company’s waste management fleet. The latest additions to its growing fleet are four new Iveco X-Way 8×4 hookloaders (AD360X42Z OFF).

Finished in Brown Recycling’s signature brown and white livery, each Iveco X-Way is equipped with a Hyva hook loading system to carry waste in skips from demolition and manufacturing sites. With an unladen weight of 8,700kg, each Iveco X-Way can achieve a payload of 23,300kg. Once loaded with a skip, these vehicles head to Brown Recycling’s dedicated recycling facility where 42% of all collected waste is recycled.

The remaining 58% is then used for energy generation with Brown Recycling transporting the waste to incinerator plants for energy production with its three Iveco S-Way tractor units. That means no waste goes to traditional landfills.

The four Iveco X-Way vehicles feature a Cursor 9 diesel engine producing 360hp and 1,650Nm of torque, a unit that perfectly balances performance with real-world economy. This engine is paired with a 12-speed automated transmission to boost drivability. Equipped with the OFF specification, these trucks are granted an increased approach angle and more durable front bumper, both things that help boost mission versatility.

Brown Recycling Ltd’s Chairman, Rod Brown, said: “We have onboarded a range of Ivecos over the past few years and have been very pleased with their performance. With an Iveco S-Way tractor unit, Eurocargos and Dailys on the fleet, it was a natural progression to try the Iveco X-Way. The demo vehicle really impressed and now we’re excited to welcome four of our own to the business.”

Each vehicle is fitted with a Connectivity Box with Smart Pack, giving the operator access to advanced features such as Smart Reporting to help boost efficiencies, and Vehicle Monitoring for keeping abreast of vehicle performance and maintenance.

Set to cover around 55,000km each year, these Sherwood Truck & Van-supplied Iveco X-Ways are covered by Iveco’s 3XL Repair and Maintenance contract that provides key operational services at fixed prices.

Rod Brown continued: “Efficiency and Total Cost of Ownership are critical, and that was another reason why the Iveco X-Way works so well for us.”

Vincenzo Nicolo, Iveco UK & ROI Managing Director said: “Brown Recycling is taking full advantage of the Iveco X-Way’s durable DNA for their heavy-duty missions. It’s great to see these hookloaders are contributing to make the demolition and manufacturing industries more sustainable.”
