MB Crusher Bucket BF90.3 in action

When the local authority in India, announced a new road project located at 4,400m above Sea Level, it did not come as a surprise that not many bidders were ready to jump in. 12 of the 38km build were at high altitude and the closest crushing site was 45km away, but the major concern was that the area was not at all well connected. Not to mention that in the area it rained and snowed for a major portion of the year and plying vehicles on wet roads was almost impossible. This was a tough job site ...  

The customer had successfully met their aggregates requirement with the help of MB Crusher Bucket BF90.3 on a previous road project and so they knew they had an upper edge with MB’s technology. They eventually won the tender to undertake this road construction project. MB Crusher BF90.3 is a jaw crusher bucket at all effects, but it is compact and travels attached to the carrier, so it was easy for the customer to reach the road construction site.

Due to the crusher bucket minimum access necessity, they started sourcing boulders from the surrounding area and prepared a huge pile of sub-base aggregate readily available along with the project site. They also managed to crush river rocks, thus eliminating their dependency on third party aggregate suppliers as well as saving on the expensive transportation cost.

They managed to create a crushing plant directly where it was needed, even at a high altitude. So many expenses were eliminated, they decided to purchase two more crusher buckets to use on this project. The result was outstanding and with the use of the buckets, they met their GSB 63mm down and WMM 40mm down requirements independently and were also able to complete the project ahead of the anticipated deadline.
