"What hides behind a blissful scene?
Mayotte, an island of 250,000 people that is part of the Comoros archipelago of islands off southeast Africa, is beautiful. Sandy beaches, coconut trees and one of the largest lagoons in the world.
However, such perfection hides many issues that local contractors need to face, when it comes to job sites:
- importing aggregates is unthinkable as the cost is too high;
- mobility is penalized by the island's hilly shape;
- many places are still inaccessible.
The solution found was a crusher bucket BF135.8 mounted on a Doosan DX530LC."
