Coffee break

Suffolk-based CDC Demolition demonstrated the benefits of Rammer attachments during its contract to remove a 225mm thick reinforced concrete mezzanine floor from a former factory while its new owners were filling the building with coffee beans.

Two 3t Kubota mini excavators were used to break out the floor, one fitted with a 205kg Rammer RC4 pulverisor, one with a competitive unit. CDC reports that the Rammer RC4 was breaking out concrete at more than 1m3/hour, more than twice the rate of its competitor.
