‘Call & Resolve’ service handles complex queries

MB G900

ATTACHMENT specialist MB Crusher has launched a free ‘Call & Resolve’ service for building site professionals.

The Italian-headquartered manufacturer said the service can help construction firms find solutions for a range of projects, including complex or extremely unusual scenarios, so that they can use the most suitable machinery.

MB Crusher production manager Diego Azzolin explained, “The service is geared to all sectors, from construction to demolition work, road excavation, earth moving, remediation jobs, trenching, quarries and environmental clean-ups.

“People who need support call us and we make available our long-standing experience, along with the expertise of our technicians. Of course, we already had an established consulting department dedicated to professionals, helping them choose the right machinery for their specific worksites, and ensuring cost savings. We’ve now broadened this department, allowing us to provide just-in-time responses, even for the industry’s most bizarre requests.”

MB Crusher said its equipment has been able to offer effective solutions to unusual challenges around the world.

One example involved the German company Kübler, which specialises in the agricultural and metallurgical sectors. Their construction site had a large quantity of waste material from a prior demolition job, along with the remains of granite blocks used for the construction of gravestones. They used an MB-L160 crusher bucket to smash the material and obtain a dual benefit: earnings from the resale of the material and a diversified business application.

Another company in America was looking to dismantle and dispose of radioactive concrete pillars. They used two BF90.3 crusher buckets mounted onto Caterpillar excavators, safely and quietly crushing the material directly on site. The goal was to limit dust emission. MB said they succeeded by installing an MB dust suppression kit onto the crusher buckets. 

Another case was that of a Latin American company that treats hazardous waste derived from soil drilling. The aim was to separate the aqueous and solid portions in the presence of oil. They used an MB-S18 screening bucket on a Caterpillar excavator to separate the materials and then reuse them to produce new drilling mud.

In France, the use of an MB-LS170 screening bucket allowed for the sorting of ferrous waste from an incinerator, separating it from ash and reusing it in automotive industry processes. The bucket was applied directly to the operated machinery, without additional energy or fuel consumption.

In Mexico, in a plaster quarry, instead of using costly explosives, one company utilised MB Crusher drum cutters to reduce the material into tiny stones, just a few millimetres in diameter, avoiding large quantities of dust.

A final example cited by MB came in Italy last year, when a strong storm swept away hectares and acres of woodland. To move and arrange the tree trunks, a company successfully used an MB-G900 sorting grapple mounted onto a Hyundai 210.
