MB Crusher in shaft screening bucket launch
By Steve Ducker14 March 2022
Italy-based attachment specialist MB Crusher has launched two shaft screening buckets designed for mini and midi excavators.
The company says the two new models, named the MB-HDS207 and the MB-HDS212, are part of its new generation HDS range and have been created to simplify tasks on all job sites, including recycling and separating dirt from demolition debris.
The MB-HDS207 weighs 98 kg (216 lb), making it compatible with a mini excavator with an operating weight of 1,300 to 2,800 kg (2,866 to 6,173 lb).
The 480 kg (1,058 lb) MB-HDS212 can be installed on midi excavators and backhoe loaders between 5,000 and 10,000 kg (11,023 to 22,046 lb), and on loaders from 4,000 kg (8,818 lb) to 10,000 kg. It is also compatible on skid steers.
MB Crusher said: “The shaft screeners were designed to simplify the job. Thanks to the coupler connection being shorter than the rest of the design, you get more control during the loading and sorting phases making it easier to get the job done. Not only that, but buckets’ shape increases productivity.
“The shaft screeners have a sealed cover designed to withstand longterm use but also to shield the vital parts of the machine from materials such as dirt and sand. The same cover protects the bolts and side casings, guaranteeing minimal downtime and the ability to continually work.”
The products will be available from Wednesday 16 March.
