Bucket Bundie hat trick saves costs for Wordsworth Crushing Ltd
Established in 2003, Wordsworth Crushing Ltd is a highly professional crushing and screening contractor with a large fleet of crushers, screeners, and plant. The company employs over 150 members of staff and provides its services to many blue-chip companies.
Wordsworth Crushing have recently added three Bucket Bundie Fuel Bowsers to their fleet provided by manufacturers, Ace Plant.
Ace Plant, home of the ‘Bundie Bowser’ fuel storage range, are a plant hire and sales company based in Milton Keynes who utilise their engineering roots to manufacture Fuel Storage Solutions and Dust Suppression equipment for hire and sale throughout the UK. Based on the same concept as the patented Bucket Bundie Fuel Bowser, Ace Plant’s Bucket Bundie Store was seen shortlisted in the Institute of Quarrying’s Excellence Awards in the knowledge and innovation category - a fantastic accolade for the ‘Bundie Bowser’ name.
The Bucket Bundies were purchased to further enhance Wordsworth Crushing’s efficiency, safety, and ease on site. Oliver Wordsworth, the Managing Director of Wordsworth Crushing, first saw the Bucket Bundie Bowser at the Hillhead Quarry Show. Oliver said that the reason why a Bucket Bundie was a better fit to his business than a towable or static version was because the unit is “compact and no need for a tractor etc to tow the tank so this saves costs”. He also said that the unit is “easy to use” and would be looking to purchase further units in the future.
These units remove the need for lifting chains as well as the need for the operator to leave the safety of the machine’s cab to attach any chains. It features a patented bucket loading system with special slots above the support legs that allow a wheel loader operator to easily pick up and move the bowser using the machine’s front bucket. With the loader bucket crowded back, the Bucket Bundie is held securely for safe transport across rough ground – this combination works much better than a towed bowser which can be difficult to move and reverse – particularly on rough terrain.
The Wordsworth units were painted in their own company colours (at no extra cost) to keep in line with the rest of their fleet and company brand.
The Bucket Bundie Bowser is available in three different capacities: 450L, 1000L & 2250L.
