Sovereign uses crusher bucket for school recycling

Northamptonshire-based hirer Sovereign Plant has used a Dig A Crusher 700 crusher bucket to spearhead the extension of one of the UK’s most exclusive boarding schools.

Mounted on a Caterpillar 320 hydraulic excavator, the attachment has been used to process construction waste, providing valuable recycled materials for the development of Uppingham School in Rutland. 

The unit was used to turn the rubble and debris into a 40 mm fill product for use in the foundations of an extended sports facility.

Sovereign Plant managing director Terry Bright explained: “We didn’t want to take a dedicated track-mounted crusher or screen into the school grounds because of the noise and disruption it would cause.

“The Dig A Crusher 700 allowed us to process material without incurring the cost of removing it from site.”
