MB Crusher units provide effective solutions to complex problems

On the construction site, small equipment, such as skid steers, loaders, and backhoe loaders, are often used for collateral or smaller work.

For companies that deal with road work, urban construction sites, trenching, recycling, agriculture, foundries, quarries, and mines, the task of the main work generally falls to excavators. MB Crusher units are able to help transform skid steers and backhoe loaders into powerful machines capable of handling demanding jobs and still save time and money. 

MB Crusher’s ultimate goal is to transform any machine, of any size, into a powerful crusher or screener.  MB Crusher equipment can hook up to any brand of skid steer, loader, or backhoe loaders from 2.4t to 25t, with mechanics that are innovative, with a simple operation enabling the crushing and screening of any material for immediate reuse or resale. All of this can be done directly onsite by reducing or screening demolition or excavation material, selecting ferrous foundry scraps, processing and reusing waste, as well as screening soil for agricultural and landscaping projects. 

As the MB Crusher units can transform waste into reusable materials, producing savings on hauling expenses, avoiding landfill fees or specialised treatment centres, saving on purchasing aggregate material, hiring operators and reducing long working hours. The benefits delivered are also important for the environment and nearby urban areas, with reductions of dust and emissions, lower truck traffic, less noise, and faster job execution.

There are numerous examples of the successful use of the MB Crushers. In the United States, a construction site was situated on a volcanic hill where a large structure with concrete pillars, floors and walls needed to be demolished. Access to the area was limited, unsafe and with limited room for manoeuver. With the MB-L140 crusher installed on a Kubota skid steer, the company crushed the demolition waste and used the crushed concrete as backfill for the construction of a new road to provide better access to the job site. As the units provide the effective and economic disposal and recycling of waste, all the resulting material – inert, ferrous, stony, earthy, and organic – can be treated and selected without passing through landfills. This means that public bodies are also able to benefit from managing solid urban waste. For example, a municipality in Normandy, France, installed the MB-LS170 screening bucket on a backhoe to screen and select the waste collected by street sweepers.

It’s not just waste and construction materials that can be processed as agriculture also directly benefits. In the case of sodic soil contamination in Australia millions of hectares were deemed unstable. The solution was to use gypsum to counteract the clay and promote drainage. By using an MB-L140 crusher bucket mounted on an ASV RT unit, the gypsum rocks were reduced to fragments that ‘mineralized’ the soil and made crop planting possible. Making the units even more attractive for use, MB Crushers share a quick and simple installation with their carriers, with operation and maintenance being performed directly on site by the operator without needing specialised personnel.
