The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) recently took delivery and received training on its third ALLU Transformer Screener Crusher bucket attachment, from East Brunswick, New Jersey-based ALLU Inc. All three of PennDOT's ALLU units are DH-17-40 models, designed to quick-couple with existing wheel loaders in the agency's fleet.

PennDOT uses the ALLU units to crush and screen waste material stored at its numerous regional field sites. Applications for the attachments include crushing of asphalt millings; light concrete crushing; gravel sizing; and soil and clay crushing, screening and mixing – for reuse in infrastructure maintenance work. The portability and efficiency provided by the ALLU units and loaders are saving Pennsylvania's taxpayers money, as they can easily move from site to site around the state and quickly process the material. Prior to its purchase of the ALLU screener/crushers, PennDOT had hired costly contract materials processors, and often was required to wait months or even years to deal with the construction waste at its field locations.

ALLU Group offers a complete line of technologically advanced screening, crushing and soil stabilizing equipment and attachments for the asphalt, compost, environmental, recycling, green waste, demolition, mining and pipeline industries. ALLU Group is ISO 9001:2000 certified. For more information, visit www.allu.net.
