Multiquip Supplies Tanner Excavating with EZ Grout Hog Crusher that transforms leftover concrete to profit.
Pat Tanner, owner of Tanner Excavating, encountered a dilemma when removing excessive concrete waste from his company’s jobsites. Tanner was charged $10 per yard of construction trash at the local land fill, in addition to the cost of transporting the debris from the site to the landfill. Upon realizing that this was not a cost-effective way to run a business, he began transporting the debris to his farm, where he had plans to eventually dispose of it. In less than 12 months, the excessive concrete waste on Tanner’s property had grown from a small pile to a mound measuring about 200 feet long X 25 feet wide X 10 feet tall.
Fixing the problem
“In Michigan, you are not permitted to create a dump site or landfill on your property; however, storing for rescaling is allowed,” says Tanner. “As an owner of the EZ Grout Hog Crusher, I am in compliance with all of the disposal laws. I have literally turned my trash into cash, contributing to our company’s bottom line.”
The Hog Crusher provided a cost-effective, reliable and durable product that helped excavators perform their jobs faster and easier. It also has saved tens of thousands of dollars annually to Tanner Excavating from expensive disposal costs.
