Rubble crusher

Got a few ton of rubble to get rid of, thinking of hiring a rubble crusher and mincing it down (can have it minced down almost to dust/grit to put in especially poached gateways or maybe leaving it a bit larger to spread and roll over to assist drainage, anyone got any experience/pointers?

How much is a few tons ,,you need a alot to put through a big crusher ,plus you need something to fill it and clear the material away ,,if its a small heap ,say 200tn then a 20 tn 360 with a crusher bucket would be worth looking at

Had a mate that wanted a bit of work with his digger so let him hire a crusher and get to work with some concrete/brick mix. Turned out a bitch of a job because the crusher wasn’t big enough really. Would have been cheaper to dig a hole and lose it then buy a few fresh loads of crushed.

Guy I know hires in an excavator bucket crusher for small amounts, he says the resulting material goes down more solid than the material he used to get out of a small engine driven crusher. Takes longer but the per day hire charge is less. Think its this model he hires:


It didn't take him long to reduce a fairly decent pile of rubble to some useful material.

That looks good

I watched him use it for a while, it will manage a pretty decent chunk of rubble. Occasionally you get a football shaped bit it can't get a good bite on, but it'll chew through a kerbstone if you feed it in at the right angle. I'd never seen one before, and was impressed. He was only using it on a small digger, 3 tonne I think. You can get the same bucket for bigger machines, they'd do a fair bit per hour I reckon. You just need a single acting hammer circuit, the valve on the bucket just cycles the jaw open and closed as long as your foot is on the pedal.

Would think loading a crusher would give more output than the bucket version

Have your voice heard. Should the Horticulture levy continue?

A ‘yes’ is a vote for change and a ‘no’ could see the end of a statutory levy. I encourage you to consider the facts and to use your vote. At a time of immense change, the loss of a central organisation that invests in applied research for the benefit of all would be a considerable loss
