BF 90.3 Bucket Crusher


The 7,716-lb. (3,500 kg) Model BF 90.3 bucket crusher offers an increased load capacity of .98 cu. yds. (.75 mc), yet incorporates reduced overall dimensions to facilitate and speed up handling for faster crushing operations. The average hourly production has been increased by approximately 20% vs. the previous model. The center of gravity has been recalculated to reduce the perception of weight during movement and use. The strength of the rear structure has also been improved to increase impact resistance.

EZ Dig Pro Depth Control System


The EZ Dig Pro for excavators and backhoes provides precise grade control for digging a fixed depth or a slope, without the need for a person in the excavation to check depth. Three solar-powered, magnet-mounted sensors take into account the movement and angle of the bucket, boom and dipper stick to give continuous depth control indication (transmitted via wireless RF communication) on the in-cab display. The one-person system can be installed and calibrated by any operator in 45 minutes or less. It can also be calibrated to several machines, and retains the data as it is moved between equipment.
