29 Oct 11 Warringah MJ Refuse SL (Collecting Bottles)

I caught this truck on a Friday morning in the units collecting the bottle bins. There were three of these trucks in my council when Veolia ran the show. Big thanks to the driver, funny how he let that one 240L fly! =]

20 Aug 11 Old 4×2 MJE Refuse ASL

Seeing this truck brought back some very young memories from the time when I used to stay at my grandparents to see the trucks at their place every Wednesday… sometimes this little truck would be found dumping the many lines of 240Ls from each unit. I found this little 18m MJ on a 4×2 Acco collecting the garbage one Friday morning after I made a trip out there to see their new automated recycling collection. I didn’t manage to get too much footage unfortunately, as this driver didn’t have much left. I really like these little single-axle trucks! Enjoy, rate and comment.

Hello this is PlumberX. People always ask me what gave you the idea and what made you create these how to plumbing videos? Coming up with the idea was easy. After many years as a plumber and servicing customers at there home I’ve seen a lot of people in tuff situations, people that could not afford a plumber, people that didn’t have time to wait for a plumber to come to there home and make repairs, hearing horror stories of Plumbers that have rip off costumers and gave bad service, to me this was a loud cry for help. One story come to mind; A friend of mine calls me and ask, PlumberX could you do me a favor and help this older lady that I know, and go by and look at her Plumbing, she needs plumbing work really bad but she’s to scared to call a plumber because of the cost, and she know that if I send you over there to check out the plumbing she can trust me as a friend recommending you, sure I said I could do that. The next day came and I went to the older lady’s home she came to the door with a pleasant smile very humble. I could see it in her eye’s she didn’t have to say a word ( What is this going to cost ) she was very polite and courteous. Sir would you like some thing to drink and I do appreciate you coming to check out my plumbing on such short notice. No problem mam, lets see what’s going on here with your plumbing. This way Sir in the kitchen. As I walk through the home I saw in the corner of my eye younger children around 3, 5 and 6 years of age running around

14 May 11 Randwick Garbage (MJ GenV Refuse)

Randwick was the second council I visited for videos of garbage trucks. What got me travelling many the kilometres from home, by myself, into an unknown area, when I was only 14 was MacDonald Johnston’s previously never before seen new GenV side loader series, and of course the new Iveco Acco cab… The GenV (or MkV) is the fifth generation in MacDonald Johnston’s side loader range. There are some good improvements that have been made to their SL range, such as the better RotaGrab arm. As for Iveco, an example is the new Cummins ISC05 engine that they’ve thrown into their Accos. If you put a Genv and an Acco together, you get one good truck… Check out the video responses for a video of the new features on the GenV, further footage of the garbage collection and a video of the GenV Recycler collecting the recycling. I really like the sound of the new engine! =] I hope you enjoy the footage of this two week old truck, ratings and comments are greatly appreciated.

29 Apr 11 MJ Refuse SL — Units Garbage

This is one of the other MJ Refuses that used to work in Warringah, one very quick truck. This footage is of the garbage collection from a few last units before heading to the landfill. There is plenty of manual packing in this video, gotta love the sound of the Ivecos really revving! =]
