MB Crusher Saves Customer Thousands Per Jobsite, While Providing An Additional Source Of Income

Reno, NV —In January 2024, MB Crusher exhibited at the World of Concrete’s historic 50th anniversary in Las Vegas, Nevada. The annual event is dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries. With nearly 60,000 construction professionals in attendance, MB Crusher was honored to receive one special attendee’s experience using MB Crusher attachments.

Anthony McCarthy is the owner of McCarthy Concrete, which specializes in commercial and industrial concrete services in Connecticut and New England. As an industry leader, the company strives to be more than an ordinary contractor, but a company that delivers durable, high-quality solutions that are built to last.

Discovering MB Crusher

McCarthy Concrete’s story began over 22 years. Anthony states, “We got into mostly municipality, that type of work. And right now, over the last four years, we’ve been focusing on big boxes, tilt wall. So it’s been very good for us, and the industry is growing really quickly.”

When asked how did he discover the MB attachment line? “It’s funny, but I’ve been coming to the shows for 20 plus years and I’ve seen the buckets, and I was always interested in them, but I never really had an application that made any sense,” he said.

A New Opportunity

One of our pain points for tilt wall or big box work is our casting slab. We were paying thousands of dollars on every job, tens of thousands of dollars to remove the casting slab concrete. It just became more and more of a problem. We tried to solve it. We couldn’t really find a great solution, but started thinking about the bucket” Anthony stated.

So this year we brought our first bucket and we used it on an excavator,” Anthony said. To help reduce costs, McCarthy Concrete installed the MB-L200 Bucket Crusher on one of their older excavators that was being underutilized. “Really smart, actually,” said Anthony regarding the advice he received from an MB Crusher Sales Expert.

McCarthy Concrete started breaking their casting slabs and reusing the crushed materials on jobsites, instead of trucking it off-site. As a result of using the MB-L200 Bucket Crusher, Anthony exclaimed, “We’re saving money. We’re making on fill. It’s just been a great win for us.”

Crushing onsite creates additional income

Initially, McCarthy Concrete was hauling the crushed materials, however, this method caused problems scheduling trucks to collect the materials. Consequently, the materials would remain piled up on the jobsite, because a trucking company would be too busy. In addition, the prices to haul materials were getting expensive.

Now we use the bucket onsite. We’re able to break our casting slabs up right away and reuse the material,” said Anthony. This method allowed McCarthy Concrete to create more backfill, thus, reducing labor costs, as well, saving money and time.

Now I’m looking at the screener bucket,” Anthony enthusiastically stated. As a result of MB Crusher’s commitment to quality and innovation, customers like Anthony demonstrate the continuing need for additional MB Crusher construction attachments for future projects.
