How Long Does it Take to Break a Habit?

Published: 31/5, 2021

During difficult times it may seem easier to “just get on with it,” and use the tried-and-true rather than attempt doing something new. But last year has taught everyone to adapt, which inevitably led to the need to embrace change.

First, consider Legarza Exploration & Construction, which has specialized in remote locations jobsites since 1992. Having tackled many sites without access roads, they are well aware of the struggle of bringing their equipment in, the time and energy it takes to build the road to reach the actual site. Their meticulous planning had helped them succeed in the past, even if it hasn’t been always foolproof or cheap.

Legarza eventually reached a point when money lost by waiting for aggregate and other material to arrive at their remote site forced them to turn down some jobs in a dicey economy. They realized the need for a crusher and a screener with the portability to easily reach jobsites, even those without roads.

Bill Arthur, the company’s owner, admits to being “pretty new to the bucket,” but he has already seen the benefits MB’s equipment brought to their jobsite. He says the buckets “save time and money, primarily on [their] budget” by eliminating material purchasing and handling expenses.

Legarza is now using what’s available to create soft roads to reach their jobsite. With MB’s BF80.3 crusher bucket, they reduce the larger stones and river rock from the bank to either a 3/4 in minus or a 3 in minus, and the MB-S18 screening bucket is used to separate the fine portion laying around, faster and cheaper process.

At the other extreme, consider a project underway at largest commercial port in India. Getting the job done quickly is the requirement here, and the MB Crusher screening bucket has proven to be the ideal machine to help to keep clear the loading dock from materials while reducing the number of machinery and operators.

Installing MB’s attachment on the backhoe previously used to move material around created an instant screening plant. Now, when the material is mixed in wrong ratios during the unloading process or when lumps forms due to moisture penetration, the contractor simply uses the screening bucket to process and reclaim the material in a matter of minutes. What’s more, the screening bucket can be easily moved from one place to another to allow the continuous passage trucks and containers coming and going from the port area. The result is maximum productivity, faster operations, and a better overall job. And that’s a change anyone should welcome.
