Webster’s entry for the awards was based on a breaker suitable for carriers between 13 and 18 t capable of producing energy that would normally need a carrier weighing at least 30 t.
It was an idea that the judges identified with as Webster was voted the top entry in this second category for demolition and recycling equipment manufacturers.
But it was not just about power. Webster said: “At 90 bpm noise levels are more tolerable and exposure times are significantly improved, 20 hours exposure at 10 m (32 ft) compared to four hours.”
Following the announcement of the award by National Demolition Association president Chris Godek, technical director Ian Webster said: “This recognition means a lot after many years of development.
“And I have to say for a small company of less than 10 people this is a fair achievement. This award is for everyone at Webster.”
