Wirral based family run business Dig & Shift Ltd have been offering site clearance, grab hire and groundworks to the local area for over eleven years. Starting with one excavator back in 2004 owners Richard and Bruce Turner have continued to invest in the company and now boast a range of dumpers; excavators, skid steers and have most recently opened their own transfer station in Ellesmere Port offering quality recycled aggregates for sale.
With the opening of the new premises came the necessity for a compact tracked impact crusher which could be used in the yard to produce a high quality type 1 aggregate and also be easily transported to demolition sites for onsite C&D waste recycling when required. ECY Haulmark was approached by Richard after he had seen a RubbleMaster crushing at another yard in Wrexham. After hiring in a RubbleMaster RM80Go to trial the machines ability to produce the required product the decision was made to invest in a new RubbleMaster RM70Go for the new yard.
Now having the ability to store and stock pile large amounts of pure concrete and mixed construction waste Dig & Shift Ltd report they are recycling around 80 tonnes per hour using the RubbleMaster RM70Go. The pure concrete is being recycled into Type 1 MOT with the addition of the RubbleMaster OS20 screen. Richard reports that some of his customers actually prefer the Type 1 – 40mm to dust they can produce with the RM70Go and OS70Go combination to a newly quarried product, stating this combination is producing a cleaner end product and certified sub base than a traditional jaw rusher. The RM70Go is also producing a 6F2 for standard sub base at up to 120 tph.
As well as being a registered waste carrier Dig & Shift are subscribed to the waste protocols project, a joint venture between the environment agency and WRAP, which sets out clear steps that must be taken for waste to become a none waste product or material that can either be reused by business or industry or be supplied into other markets, enabling recovered products to be used without the need for waste regulation controls.
