Big Gains In Sorting
Outside Askersund, Folkessons Gräv is preparing for a future wind farm by pulling new electricity cable from the switchgear to the planned wind farm.
There are many benefits to the screening bucket, but the main reason we wanted to use it right here was "not to risk driving arable land with material transport," says Ricard Hammarberg, project manager. The bucket is owned by Marcus Folkesson, Folkessons Gräv i Gullspång, who usually uses it on its JCB 220LC.
“I'm very happy with it. Above all, you save on the environment by reusing material in place, but it also works faster when you do not have to wait for material transport and then you get a very nice looking material. There are only benefits to it it, it has worked better than expected even in mud and wet masses”, he adds.
Work started in the middle of April 2020 and will go on during all fall. “It's a total distance of one mile that we should do, so it came more will have to do for a while” says Marcus Folkesson. No need to change gear Right now it's fellow Martin Gilbertsson driving the bucket on its Hyundai HX145LCR while Marcus is leading the JCB and bulldozing.
“Since the bucket has a long bottom, we can do the whole backfill with it, which is very smooth and saves even more time than if we had to change gear between” continues Marcus Folkesson.
