Where there is an MB Crusher unit, there is a way!

Guidelines for streamlining the process and procedures for laying of new pipes for water  in a city centre where roads are only 2 meter wide. For instance Brodarica in Croatia is a small and peaceful holiday village by the sea, its catchword is relax. This small cosy area offers amenities where tourists and local families can have a pleasant time. All easily achieved, till recently, when the water mains change became imperative.

The quiet in this coastal village could be jeopardized by the major work that needed to be done in the city roads as the road surface needed to be removed in depth to lay the new water pipes.  To complicate the matter in this area, the villas and the private houses are separated by paths 2 meters wide, there is barely room to move. So the machines to use needed to be compact and precise.

A daunting task for the contractor, they needed to identify the way to go along the roads, dig 2.2 meters dip and lay the new water pipes without inconvenience the residents. To do a major work in a residential area is a complex operation. Worsen, in this case, by the lack of space.

The preparation phase for replacing the underground water mains in this town is undergoing, residents continue to live in the building during the pipeline renovation and the job is keeping the time scheduled. It is always matter of choosing the right equipment for the job, to get the job done right.

The MB Crusher cutterhead MB-R500 is the smallest of the line, it weighs only 300kg and its powerful grinder has a diameter of 500mm, plus it has several accessories that can be chosen based on the task ahead.
