Efficiency is important to Jan Hes. It’s why the company chose the Crambo 5200 direct in the first place. With its direct drive, the machine is much thriftier than the hydraulic drive machines they had been renting up until then. “We save almost half the fuel,” says Peter Hes. “We get similar savings with the new star screen as well. Our previous L3 had reached the point where we had to replace it. With the new machine fuel consumption is almost 25% lower, with higher throughput.” Peter Hes cares a great deal about fuel efficiency. “We see the cost advantage every operating hour, and naturally it also has direct benefits for the environment.”
