IJ Lynn choose Epiroc kit for demolition of waste water treatment plant

Published 24/2 at 11:49

On the back of three years reliable service from its Epiroc breakers, drainage and earthworks contractor IJ Lynn & Sons have further invested in Epiroc breakers and grabs.

Performance combined with back up service, and support from local dealer WAC McCandless (Engineers) Ltd, were the main reasons for selecting Epiroc’s MG 1500 multi grapple and MB 1650 breaker. Having bought his first Epiroc SB 152 early in 2017, owner Ivan Lynn’s positive experience led him to choose Epiroc’s equipment as he knew it to be more productive, requiring less down time and maintenance. “We’ve been using the new breaker and grapple to demolish a waste water treatment plant and then remove the waste from the site. I’ve been particularly impressed with the MG 1500 R – the rotation unit on the grab makes it so much faster and more flexible than our old grab,” explained Ivan Lynn.

The team has also used a MB 1650 hammer to break up the water tanks, moving the large pieces of debris to an area of the site where they can be broken down quickly and easily using the company’s Epiroc SB

breakers before being removed from the site for recycling. Epiroc regional sales manager Donal Cunningham said, “Thanks to their particularly robust design, our versatile MG excavator grapples are perfect for demolishing light structures as well as sorting and loading demolished material. Like the grab, our SB and MB hydraulic breakers combine efficiency and performance with high durability.”

The team at Epiroc’s distributor, WAC McCandless, have years of industry knowledge; specifically across demolition, utilities, groundwork, remediation, quarrying and civil engineering. This has seen Michael Quinn, area sales manager from WAC McCandless, to be on hand throughout the process, from selecting the right equipment for the job, through to commissioning and after sales service.
