FRANCE. HOW TO GET RID OF WEEDS WITH YOUR EXCAVATOR

In France, a valley's biodiversity was at risk of a Japanese knotweed invasion. 
How were they going to eliminate it, without using trucks to transport tons of soil? 
The original idea was to install the MB-HDS320 shafts screener on an excavator to process the rootstalks and mulch it. This deemed the rootstak unfit for regeneration and it was no longer able to infest the land.

DIY landscaping at no additional cost! 

The MB screening bucket is cleaning stones in a watertight container.

ITALY, HOW TO CLEAN STONES FOR DECORATIVE PURPOSES WITH A MINIMUM INVESTMENT

In Trentino Alto Adige, in northern Italy, a company had to clean dirt off of natural stones, to create flower beds, fencing and ornamental retaining walls. How did they do it while expending the least amount of energy and resources? The solution was to install the MB-S18 screening bucket with 80 mm panels to an excavator to wash the stones in a water-filled container. 

 

  • Practical: just install the bucket on an excavator already on site. 
  • Fast: operations are done directly from the excavator cabin. 
  • Economical: everything is done on site without having to resort to third parties. 

JAPAN. DEMOLISHING WITHOUT DESTROYING: THE GRAPPLE WITH A “GENTLE” TOUCH. 

On a construction site in Japan, the problem was demolishing a house without destroying the material, so they could recycle it. This is why the company used an MB-G900 grapple, which took the wooden panels and moved them with extreme precision. The house was practically pulled apart piece by piece and the material was completely reclaimed. 

The advantages? 

  • The job was completed in a short time. 
  • The material was handled with precision and ready for reuse
  • Expenses reduced.

GUINEA. RENOVATING A ROAD WITHOUT STOPPING VEHICLE CIRCULATION 

Stopping port activities is unthinkable. However it is necessary to tear out and replace part of a drivveway in the container handling area, which is currently compose of self-locking concrete blocks. After removing and stock piling them in a designated area, the BF80.3 crusher bucket was used to crush the blocks down to 0-3cm. The product was then mixed with the existing substrate, thus creating a quality mix capable of withstanding container loads. 

What were the advantages of using a BF80.3? 

  • Being able to work in a tight space. 
  • No need for additional heavy machinery.
  • Reuse of the inert material without having to purchase more.
