Hyundai excavators and skid steer loaders are delivering reliability to demolition experts Enviro Site Services in their Queensland operations.
Founded by Myron Lichtnauer in Queensland in 2006, Enviro Site Services (ESS) has been active in asbestos removal since its inception and has added marine and mine demolition to its specialities.
ESS caters to the needs of high profile clients such as the Brisbane City Council, Queensland Government and Port of Brisbane, and has been involved in landmark projects including asbestos removal at the James Hardie Newstead factory and removal of a kilometre-long jetty at Hayman Island.
Vibration and dust, an inevitable part of demolition can contribute to downtime in modern machines. However, the robust construction of the Hyundai machines allows reliable performance even in highly demanding environments.
The performance of the Hyundai excavators in the ESS fleet over a number of years gave Myron the confidence to purchase his first Hyundai HSL650-7 skid steer loader.
Featuring a 650kg operating capacity and 2,240mm maximum dump height, the HSL650-7 skid steer loader is powered by a 35.5 kW Kubota diesel engine. The optional fully enclosed, air-conditioned cab provides ESS operators with improved operator comfort in hot and dusty environments.
The new ESS skid steer is put to work stripping out the insides of supermarkets and other buildings, and loading the stripped material into waste skips that are taken to a sister company’s recycling facility for processing. Slightly narrower than the other two skid steer loaders in the ESS fleet, the HSL650-7 is better suited to this application.
Hyundai’s HSL650-7 skid steer loader also meets ESS’ primary requirement of robust construction with features that are easily serviced and maintained.
Hyundai has recently introduced the latest model skid steer loader, the HSL650-7A, which features a newer, more powerful engine and hydraulic pilot control system.
In addition to the impressive performance of the Hyundai excavators in the ESS fleet, Myron is appreciative of the backup and support received from the Brisbane Hyundai Construction Equipment (HCE) branch. This quality of service has been a significant factor for the ESS fleet to carry 80% Hyundai branded machines.
