John Deere delivers the power for compact crushing in London

Air pollution is one of the most significant challenges facing London, and the tightening of emission standards and the introduction of Ultra-Low Emission Zones (ULEZ) poses challenges for the construction and demolition industry.

The Ultra-Low Emission Zone regulations apply to all non-road mobile machinery, so the equipment used on construction and demolition sites will need to meet the required emission control and noise levels.

Red Knight 6 Ltd, an innovative business supplying equipment to the quarrying and recycling market, has worked with a demolition company in the London Borough of Camden to source a crushing machine that meets all the criteria for their Clean Air Action Plan.

In addition to the machine meeting the requirements of reduced noise, dust and emissions, there was a further challenge of accessibility to the construction site on Haverstock Hill Road. With so many surrounding buildings close by, the crusher needed to be highly mobile to work within the limited space. It also needed to produce the final aggregate in one pass so that it could be re-used immediately on site.

RED Knight 6, recommended a RUBBLE MASTER 70GO! 2.0 tracked mobile impact crusher powered by a John Deere Tier 3/Stage III engine. Paul Donnelly, Director of Red Knight 6 commented, “With its noise-reducing design, the RM 70GO! is the perfect solution for noise-sensitive areas like inner cities. There are many design elements within the machine that make RUBBLE MASTER the most silent impact crushers in the industry, such as noise-reducing engine compartment, engine mounting and optimised ventilation slots.”

This compact yet powerful crusher, with an average throughput of 125 tons per hour, handled 4000 tons of material on-site, and the job was finished within five days. “The performance and reliability of the John Deere engines kept the RM 70GO! operating at optimum capacity during the project and the benefits of the fuel-efficient engine maintained very low fuel consumption resulting in reduced running costs,” Paul Donnelly concluded.

Red Knight 6 has 25 John Deere powered machines operating in the south of England. As John Deere’s exclusive distributor in the UK, Barrus provides service and spare parts support to Red Knight 6.
