Crusher bucket and screen attachments available from FAMCO
Hartl Crushers, an Austrian manufacturer of crusher buckets and screener attachments has signed a GCC-wide distribution with major equipment seller Al-Futtaim Auto and Machinery Company (FAMCO).
Crusher buckets, which can be used with almost any model of hydraulic excavator, are growing in popularity as an attachment tool to process materials such as demolition waste on-site, without the hire of a mobile crusher, which is normally higher cost, requires specialist operators, and can be logistically challenging for smaller and medium sites.
Gerard Pastl, sales director at Hartl Crushers, says that due to the weight of excavators used in the GCC, “our bigger models crushers HBC 950 and HBC 1250 and screens HBS 1600 and HBS 2000 will be the most common attachments”.
The HBC 950 and HBC 1250 crusher buckets have production capacities that range from 35-85 tonnes per hour and 50-110 t/h respectively, where production capacities vary based on material, feet size and gap setting. For gypsum, production for the HBC 950 can be up to 128 t/h.
The Hartl crushers use a fourfold ‘quatro’ movement, resulting in less wear on the attachment and a more consistent performance for size and shape of the crushed materials. In 2013 the Hartl crusher bucket won the Red Dot Award for product design.
The bucket crushers can be used on site for processing of construction and demolition waste (CDW), including concrete, bricks, asphalt, ceramics and glass, as well as natural stone processing. The screener attachment is used for separation of natural stone and recycling material into usable fractions, allowing on-site recycling and reuse of debris.
The contracts were signed on 1st of October 2014, with units available in KSA, UAE, Oman and Qatar.
