Efficient cleaning solution

M.V. Maschinenvertriebs GmbH launches MobyDick demucking system

M.V. Maschinenvertriebs GmbH from Forchheim/Upper Franconia in Germany sells and rents special machines to the construction industry and is a specialist for all applications in soft ground or mud. With a focus on the sale and rental of track dumpers, which are characterized by low ground pressure and flexible application options, the company relies on proven manufacturers such as Prinoth, Kässbohrer and Morooka. Marco Gast, head, and owner of the company, knows the advantages and disadvantages of the various concepts and can therefore solve each problem individually.


Under the expert guidance of Marco Gast, the company’s managing director and owner, M.V. Maschinenvertriebs GmbH has tackled a key challenge: the inefficient cleaning of returning construction machinery. This process used to require considerable time and water consumption, especially for large track dumpers, which could take up to five hours to clean.


In spring 2023, an innovative solution was implemented that not only optimizes operational processes, but also leads to significant time and resource savings. The integration of a Demucking System from the renowned manufacturer MobyDick at the depot proved to be groundbreaking. As space is very limited, the water recycling tank had to be placed under the washing system. This meant that the system fitted perfectly into the operating process. The machines are unloaded from the low-loader and washed before they are taken to the workshop or prepared for the next job.


The Demucking technology, based on MobyDick’s proven washing technology and water recycling principles, uses moderate water pressure to thoroughly clean the entire vehicle. A special nozzle arrangement achieves an effective washing result. Unlike conventional Wheel Washing Systems, which only clean dirt-releasing areas, the Demucking system aims to remove coarse dirt such as soil, stones, clay, and coal dust from the entire vehicle without removing oils and greases. This sustainable cleaning solution is suitable for construction machinery, military vehicles and railroad wagons and ensures that vehicles are always clean and ready for use.


The implementation of the MobyDick Demucking System has not only significantly reduced the cleaning time, from up to five hours to just twenty minutes, but also enables a more efficient use of resources. Marco Gast comments: “If I had implemented this system five years ago, it would probably already have paid for itself today.”
