Dig A Screener fitted on CAT excavator screens over 800 tonnes in a week

A week’s hire of a Dig A Screener REMU EX140 bucket has enabled Richards Plant Hire to screen over 800 tonnes of soil and rubble mixed with clay in just over a week, after traditional screeners struggled to cope.

A Dig A Screener REMU bucket, with 40mm blade spacing, was fitted on a CAT 320D excavator to process waste material onsite at a building project in rural Shropshire.

David Richards, the proprietor of Richards Plant Hire, explained, "We chose to hire a Dig A Screener REMU bucket because we were having problems with clay mixed in with soil and rubble.

"We had tried track screens, but the trouble was that the clay went over the mesh and contaminated the pile of stone and brick, which we crush to make a product out of. We also tried riddle buckets, but they were too slow and tended to knock the machine about in the process."

Once screened, the rubble was removed from site and crushed to create hardcore, while the remaining material was reused on site. This meant the quality of the final screened product was critical in the decision as to which screening equipment was used.

Excavator operator, Ian Sylvester commented: "I would definitely recommend hiring a Dig A Screener REMU screening bucket. It has coped with some difficult materials and produced a good product at the end of it, which gave us a lot more options in terms of recycling material."

Sean Heron, managing director of Dig A Screener commented "The recent decision to make Dig A Screener REMU buckets available for hire was an easy one.

"It’s a quality product available in a range of models, and its durability and versatility make it an ideal hire product. The more people that experience the benefits of Dig A Screener REMU buckets the better. By hiring these screeners out we are giving companies the opportunity to use them, who would otherwise not consider or be in a position to do so."

However, it’s not just the product that is of benefit to the customer. David Richards also spoke highly of the service he received from Dig A Screener; "They offered us a range of different screening buckets, giving us the variation to get the right tool for the job.

"They also came to site and set the machine up. As a plant hirer we provide our clients with a complete package and being able to offer them the Dig A Screener REMU range of attachments, without having to actually invest in one, is of great benefit. Ultimately it means I don’t have a valuable piece of kit not earning money in my workshop between jobs."
