Separating a quality product from a waste material is at the core of many civil construction and infrastructure services. For the waste sector, the sorting and screening of bulk waste material from earth works can be a difficult and cost consuming process.

The ALLU DS3/17 bucket takes the headache out of sorting through reusable material, not only saving operators in terms of costs, but more importantly, time.

Operators such as Dave Kerrison understand the importance of saving time, for his civil construction and infrastructure services and has seen exemplary results when using the ALLU DS3/17 for his excavation, subdivision, earthworks, and road works projects.

“Every project is time critical, so the bucket is great for reducing both costs and the time that you need to spend on one project,” Dave says.

“Setting up for a project is as easy as bringing the attachment in with the tilt truck, changing the oil flows in the machine and then you can start the project,” he says.

“We mainly use the bucket for the recovering of road-based material and topside soil. These materials can contain debris such as asphalt, so finding solutions for reutilising the material is critical.”

Dave adds that projects such as road works can usually require multiple machines and employees. When using the ALLU bucket, he experienced a reduction in operating costs.

“We can also utilise machines that we already have on site, rather than interchange between any piece of equipment, again saving costs,” he says.

“We have had projects where we did not have to import any material at all, as we could repurpose topsoil from the same site.”
