Burrows returns for third Dyson NRC
East Midlands-based Burrows Recovery has invested in another real heavy hitter – a Roger Dyson NRC sliding rotator.
The new NRC equipment was fitted at the bodybuilder’s production facility in Droitwich, Worcestershire, to a new DAF CF85 8x4 chassis which was also supplied by Dyson.
It boasts a sliding and rotating boom capable of lifting up to 50,000kg, and a 16,000kg-capacity underlift. Other features include four hydraulic winches, two with 45,000lb capacities and an ancillary 20,000lb pair, full storage lockers, a working area lighting system and radio remote control for safe and easy use by a single operator.
Roger Dyson also fitted the chassis with a removable tag axle to provide the optimum axle loading specification required for Burrows’ police work.
Roger Dyson is the sole UK and European distributor for Canadian manufacturer NRC’s acclaimed range of sliding rotator recovery systems.
The NRC Sliding Rotator is the only system in the world that allows the crane boom to slide and rotate under full capacity. This allows much more flexibility in positioning the equipment at a recovery scene, and in many instances can effectively double the crane capacity by allowing the boom to be slid over the rear support jacks and used in a retracted position.
Burrows’ third heavy duty sliding rotator purchase from Roger Dyson is based at its new depot in Nottingham, and replaces an older piece of Dyson equipment which was taken back in part-exchange.
Managing Director Chris Burrows confirms: “We had no hesitation in replacing the previous truck with another Dyson. The new unit is already working hard on our contracts with local police forces, truck operators and dealers.”
He continues: “The sliding and rotating system makes it extremely versatile and perfect for heavy recovery jobs, particularly in situations where extra reach is needed when the ability to move the crane is a huge benefit. In fact, the NRC sliding rotator does everything we require.”
Roger Dyson also supplied 90 per cent of the slidebacks on Burrows’ fleet of 60 recovery vehicles. “The build quality and finish of Roger’s equipment is exceptional,” adds Mr Burrows. “It does the job and it never lets you down, while spare parts are always available when you need them.”
A third-generation family business, Burrows Recovery has a headquarters in Derby, and other depots in nearby Borrowash, Burton upon Trent, Loughborough and Sutton in Ashfield.Back to News & Events
