Scotts Miracle-Gro recently took delivery of and received training on an ALLU transformer material processing attachment at its brand new Riga, N.Y., facility. The company purchased the ALLU DH-4-23-40 attachment for its 20-ton (18 t) wheel loader to screen, crush, mix and load materials in one step during the production of mulch, topsoil, manufactured soil, soil starter and potting mix.
The ALLU unit not only eliminates the need for costly stationary screening and pulverizing machinery, but it also reduces labor, fuel and maintenance costs due to its versatility, portability and efficiency. Additionally, this winter, the ALLU transformer proved to be beneficial in pulverizing frozen piles of mulch that the facility stores outside, rendering the material more pliable so that it flows freely through indoor conveyor systems that sort, size and bag the product.
This is the second ALLU unit purchased by Marysville, Ohio-based Scotts Miracle-Gro, which has numerous production facilities across the United States. The unit was sold and will be serviced by ALLU Inc.’s dealer Five Star Equipment from its Rochester, N.Y., facility. ALLU Inc. is based in East Brunswick, N.J.
