Bobcat T450 helps with asbestos removal

12 August 2020

A recent report estimates there are still six million tonnes of asbestos inside 1.5 million buildings in the United Kingdom alone.

The removal of these materials requires the expertise of specialist companies such as DJ Cleaning, based in Yorkshire in the north of England, which holds a full three-year licence from the UK Health & Safety Executive to remove all types of asbestos such as asbestos insulation board (AIB), artex and cement products.

To meet the increasing need for a new compact solution for this work, DJ Cleaning has purchased a Bobcat T450 tracked loader from AMS Bobcat, the authorised Bobcat dealer for the counties of East and South Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

The cab on the T450 at DJ Cleaning is fully enclosed, including a front door and wiper system. Bobcat says this provides a pressurised interior space that keeps dust down to a minimum, keeping the operator clean and comfortable, while the one-piece seal and curved door pocket protect the driver for asbestos removal work.

DJ Cleaning owner and director Dan Stephenson said: “With the peace of mind provided by the enclosed, pressurised cab on the T450, we can equip the machine with lifting tines and drive it on to the most confined of asbestos removal sites to pick up hazardous materials we’ve bagged up for safe removal from site.”
