says that its new Processor series of units can be used to help mix and process materials. These units are power mixer attachments that convert excavators into powerful and versatile machines for mixing a variety of difficult materials. Materials suited for the attachment range from clay, silt, peat, sludge and sediment, to dredged material and contaminated soil.
Working to a depth of 3m, the 2.1tonne, the Processor 300 HD is made from wear- resistant steel and with a stem designed to be strong, streamlined and lightweight. As with its smaller sibling the 300 HD, the 2.44tonne Processor 500 HD is both durable and strong and can work to a depth of 5m. Both units are powered by the excavator’s hydraulic system and are able to mix materials on any site. This means that binders or chemical agents can be delivered to the area of the highest mixing shear by an attached 80mm diameter pipe, and injected via a nozzle located between the mixing drums.
