Product feature: MB Crusher

MB Crusher has unveiled a new generation of shafts screens, the MB-HDS series, which has been tipped to be a wild card in the industry

The new series was launched during bauma 2019, which took place in Germany, to the construction materials industry and extraction sector.

"With this new machine, we pushed our boundaries; it’s packed with innovative features and technology. After years of testing, we’re thrilled to launch it onto the market, so that it can benefit the professionals and companies for whom it has been created," explains Diego Azzolin, production director at MB Crusher.

Diego says the new MB-HDS series is ‘radically different’ from all the other systems available on the market.

"It has been designed to be a real wild card. It can adapt to a range of different working environments and can select different types of materials with unprecedented simplicity and speed, without the need for a specialist or special training," he says.

MB Crusher patented its first crusher bucket in 2001. Since then, the company says it has continued to evolve while remaining true to its purpose, which is, Diego says, "to facilitate the work on-site and to make it competitive, self-contained and profitable.


"What professionals, companies, and users want is to be able to work continuously without interruptions for maintenance and to facilitate the processing of materials, which can be very expensive," he explains.

"Over the years, we have fulfilled these fundamental requirements, with innovative machines that turn waste materials into opportunities, a key element for many companies nowadays."

Diego says the company is taking a further step forward with the MB-HDS Shaft Screener line.  "We are justifiably proud of our research and development department; it never stops working, just like our Crusher Buckets and Screening Buckets, which have been working relentlessly on building sites for over 15 years."

The MB-HDS Shafts Screener was designed with the aim to reduce waste and increase the profitability of the construction site

The MB-HDS Shafts Screener was designed with a constructive approach towards reducing waste and increasing the profitability of the construction site.

"What is new about the machine is its ability to adapt to different types of work and different materials," says Diego. "It’s the ideal solution for those who have to process different kind of waste rubble, which can quickly be turned into reusable and profitable material.

"We have created a machine that’s capable of overcoming the various challenges faced every day by those involved in earth removal, excavation, demolition, recycling, agricultural activities, and landscaping."

The MB-HDS Screening Bucket enables users to change the rotating shafts on-site

The new MB-HDS series selects and crushes excavation and demolition materials, asphalt, coal, organic materials, wood, bark and light plastics, and enables products to be re-purposed immediately.

"It’s possible to transform one material into another effortlessly, at any time you need to. This is the most important and useful innovation," Diego adds.

The MB-HDS Screening Bucket enables users to change the rotating shafts on-site in complete safety. The system keeps the rotating supports in place; the rotors can be removed and repositioned while the angular alignment is kept in place.

"For us, having developed this new system represents a breakthrough, and for companies, whether they are big or small, it means having a construction site that is always working and obtaining high-quality materials that can be re-used or sold, saving transport, dismantling, and maintenance costs," says Diego.

The units are designed to be multi-purpose and versatile

The MB-HDS Screening Bucket is available in four models with shafts suitable for the different material selection requirements and, as with all MB Crusher machines, they can be easily installed on excavators, diggers, mini diggers, and loaders (from five to 35 tonnes), in order to easily access and move around work sites, construction sites, areas containing large pipelines, towns, or remote agricultural areas.

Rotary shafts have a centralised greasing system and all maintenance tools are located inside a compartment of the shafts screener. An engineered automated shock-absorbing hydraulic system reduces discharge, so that the engine, transmission components, and the machine boom do not suffer any damage, preserving machinery life expectancy and reducing maintenance costs.

The new system reduces noise levels by 40% when processing materials, eliminating the need for exterior noise-control systems.

"Compact, reliable, sturdy, and safe, the MB-HDS units are designed to be multi-purpose and highly versatile as well as being quieter to operate," says Diego.
