The MB Crusher customer’s roadbuilding project is in India’s northern mountainous region, 16,700 feet above sea level. Given the high altitude of the project site, installing a static crusher was very difficult. Additionally, due to the non-availability of electricity, the contractor had to rely on a diesel generator set (DGS) to run their static crusher at the jobs site. Furthermore, the high-altitude working environment means that the oxygen level is very low, so the DGS cannot operate fully.
The contractor customer had deployed manual labourers at the road build to segregate small pieces of stones, but this could not generate sufficient productivity. Given the BRO-commissioned project’s route, the contractor’s team has to cope with severe snow for a large part of the works. While looking for a productive and efficient solution for preparing GSB (granular sub base) material for use in the project’s new roads and helipads, the contractor focused on MB Crusher’s BF90.3 S4 crusher bucket. The firm had deployed the same model on a trial basis at its other recent project sites.
Despite the remote project location, the contractor has found the MB Crusher crusher bucket a very productive machine, saving time and transport costs. The contractor also found it easy to mobilise while generating lower operation and maintenance costs.
After being delighted with the BF90.3 S4’s crusher bucket’s performance, the contractor has bought three additional BF90.3 S4 units to use in its various ongoing projects.
