Global Recognition of Benefits

Although used extensively on smaller, more job-specific applications, more and more contractors are also recognizing crusher buckets as a tool for larger construction and demolition projects.

In South Africa, the construction company, Liviero Civils used MB crusher buckets in ground clearance applications during construction of the largest stadium for the 2010 World South Africa, with a capacity for almost 100,000 people.

In the USA, a specialist contractor is using crusher buckets for construction of 1635 houses and the revitalization of an additional 443 residential units for the families of the US military forces. This is the largest project involving the development of privatized military lodging in the country since 1996.

The 2084 units will be erected on the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J, from which transport aircraft, aerial refuelling aircraft and one of the most recognized tactical fighters of the modern day, the F15, are regularly deployed.

In New Zealand, Mike Earl Contractor is using a MB BF 70 on a 18 tonne Doosan excavator in a small quarry with rotten rock where, with jaw setting at 50 mm, he is achieving a throughput of 30 m³/h.

In New Zealand, Mike Earl Contractor is using a MB BF 70 on a 18 tonne Doosan excavator in a small quarry with rotten rock where, with jaw setting at 50 mm, he is achieving a throughput of 30 m³/h.Another contractor in New Zealand demonstrated how well the BF60 and the BF70 could crush concrete railway sleepers.

“We found that with the BF70 we could crush two sleepers side by side in under 30 seconds. The smaller BF60 was set up on our Sumitomo SH120 and this was crushing the sleepers also.

The BF70 was used on a Komatsu PC200. We set this digger up in under 2 hours. Loading the crushers in a face shovel fashion we could crush over 100 sleepers per hour.

There is about 8 kg of clean steel in every sleeper, so there could be some money in recycling the steel alone not to mention selling the crushed product.”

MB currently produces four sizes of jaw-action crusher buckets suitable for use on excavators weighing from 8 to over 28 tonne.

The company also makes a bracket mounted magnetic separator for use on its crusher buckets in order to collect rebar and other steel from the construction and demolition waste.
