As Dave puts it, ‘An amazingly quick and impressive turnaround! The bucket would have been out of service for a week and we simply can’t afford downtime, so Worsley Plant collected our old bucket (in part exchange) and delivered and installed our new bucket on the same day.” Back in 2002, D&E Roberts had a small crushing processing area and no space for a big crusher. A crushing bucket was the perfect fit and continues to be the best solution today.
They crush on average 6 loads a day of Construction & Demolition waste, which goes through their waste plant. It starts off going through their picking belt and it is the left over hardcore and concrete that has been recycled from roads, patios, drives and drainage which is crushed.
The main benefit of crushing is that it saves on disposal and ensures materials are recycled and reused. This provides D&E Roberts with an additional source of income as well as being environmentally friendly. They produce both Type 1 at 50mm down and Type 2 at 80mm down. The crushed size is adjustable depending on customers needs. It is a simple process of releasing the tension on the spring, and either adding or subtracting shins to adjust your crush size.
Dave is extremely pleased with the MB Crushing Buckets. He says: “The operation of the buckets is quiet which is important for us, as we have neighbours. The crushing action is very good and produces a uniform size, which is ideal for our needs.
