If you think of construction work as easy, let us tell you that you are wrong. At almost any stage of the job, difficulties can arise. And every problem must be solved quickly and without incurring additional expenses. Everyone solves difficulties in their own way, either with the machinery they already own or by adopting new processes that not only solve their problems but allows them to generate revenue. “Sometimes, however, customers surprise us,” MB Crusher says. “In a truly brilliant way, they solve problematic situations using our machinery in a way we would have never thought.”
Demolish not destroy: The grapple with a delicate touch
On a construction site in Japan, it was necessary to demolish a wooden house without destroying or ruining the material. Traditional three-tooth claw grapples, make it difficult to remove and move the small pieces of wood. On the other hand, the MB-G900 grapple removed the wooden planks, and delicately and precisely moved them without destroying the material. Using the MB-G900, the house was deconstructed, not just demolished. The job was completed quickly, accurately, and without additional costs.
At the port, work never stops
We are at the port of Conakry, Guinea, where 2 million tons of goods get trafficked every year. A 774-million-dollar restoration project was underway, which included the restoration of the handling and storage area, which had begun to deform after continuous storage and movement of heavy cargos. Elimination of the existing self-blocking concrete blocks used to reinforce the subsoil is no easy task, let alone trying to replace them while the port activity continued. The ingenious solution the construction site adopted was using a BF80.3 crusher bucket: with this agile and compact unit, they managed to crush the existing blocks on the spot, reducing them to a size of 0-3 cm. They then mixed the crushed material with the existing sub-base, creating a quality mixture capable of withstanding heavy loads. All done in a small space, without using trucks and disposing of waste material: three successfully attained goals.
So clean it’s beautiful
Trentino Alto Adige, Italy, is known for its aesthetically pleasing public greenery: everything is treated in detail, flowers, and other decorations are always perfectly arranged. A landscaping company was tasked to clean dirty natural stones to create flower beds and fencing and decorative retaining walls without disturbing the surrounding areas. How did they accomplish this? The solution they adopted was to use the MB-S18 screening bucket with 80mm panels to select and clean the stones inside a tight, water-filled container.
