CAPETONIAN Andrew Morris is set to test the local crushing market with the introduction, this month, of Red Rhino, a well-known brand of small crushing machines designed and manufactured in England.
Trading as Red Rhino Africa, Morris has negotiated exclusive rights for distribution in South Africa.
He says the diesel powered Red Rhinos are designed primarily for building sites to allow demolition rubble to be crushed and used on-site for foundations and so on. The smallest machine processes about 80 tons per day and the largest over 300 tons per day.
He has good selling message, pointing out that with landfill sites becoming such a difficult problem (including steeply rising gate fees) apart from sheer volumes and imminent closure, onsite crushing is an option even for the smallest builder.
It also represents a business opportunity for the removal companies as, for any company transporting rubble, loads can be more than doubled by crushing prior to transportation - saving fuel, gate fees and so on.
In Britain, these machines have also been used by ceramics companies, glass recyclers and brick makers.
He says machines will be built to order and turn-round time is about six weeks.
Operating from premises in Philippi, the first machine will be delivered by the end of this month - a 2000 series that can be taken around as a demo model. It will also be available for hire.
“There are many ways in which these machines can be deployed and I have already received enquiries from Kwazulu-Natal and Gauteng,” Morris says.
