Material gets shaken not stirred thanks to Strickland Direct

There are so many attachments available for excavators these days, which can really transform your machine into a multi-purpose tool carrier. I know I could spend an absolute fortune on them if I had the reserves to do so and the amount of work with my mini excavator to justify the expense. I recently placed an order for this shaker/riddling bucket from Pershore based manufacturer Strickland Direct. The bucket was manufactured and dispatched to me in record time and on Friday I got to try it out for the first time. This bucket will come in handy here, as we have a number of rubbish piles containing hard-core and dirt, which I can now separate, and at some point in the future I can bring in a mini crusher to process the hard-core and turn it into a useful product for the gateways here at Digger Towers! This latest bucket joins my existing mini excavator work tools, that now include a Berti flail mower, boom broom, and my Diga-Bara dumper attachment. I still have a number of items on the wish list of course, and it goes without saying that one of them is a tiltrotator, and the other item being a rotary selector grab. Look out for my article in an upcoming edition of Earthmovers Magazine, where I will be taking a look at the wide variety of attachments on offer for excavators.
