BRC Plant Hire, based at Bold Heath, Warrington, specialises in on-farm crushing and screening along with recycling. It screens mainly brick, rubble, soil and concrete from demolished farm buildings and roads which have been dug up, and approached Worsley Plant to find out more about smaller kit.
It was suggested they try a combination of screening and crushing buckets and, after trials with hired equipment, the company has bought a Remu 3150 screening bucket and a MB BF60 crushing bucket, used together on a JCB JS130 and Daewoo 140LCV. They are allowing BRC to recycle 100% of a client’s materials on-site.
BRC often works in confined spaces, where the excavators and buckets now fit. They also operate in all weather conditions, meaning BRC can screen wet topsoil all winter without turning the material to mud.
The two buckets can be towed on a trailer by a 4x4 rather than spending £400 for transport on a low loader for larger kit.
