 [00:00:10] Hey welcome back to Rebel crusher Bob. And we’re going to be answering some of your questions regarding recycling material concrete asshole crushing screening and so forth. And today we have a question from looks like Scott in Arizona and Scott’s question is. 

 

 [00:00:30] I’ve heard that crushers are high maintenance. And what do the where parts costs and how often do they need to be replaced. So it’s a unique question Scott. I appreciate that. I would say that in general. Yeah. There’s definitely some maintenance involved with crushing. Typically we’re looking at the where parts or the actual parts of the crusher that are impacted by the material. So if it’s an impact crusher it would be the blow bars. If it’s a jaw crusher it’s the jaw dies or jaw plates. And most of the crushers that are out in the market you can flip the parts and double the life out of them. So you know it is something that’s built in it’s kind of like rotating your tires. But in general most people that are crushing are making so much money that the costs of where parts is basically negligible. You know it’s not something that they’re focused on although it’s a great question. I would say it can be very expensive if your material has a significant amount of abrasive qualities in it maybe has a lot of steel in it. And we want to look at that. So we definitely want you to call us and we can discuss your particular needs. But overall I would say that if I’m just looking at it typically our rebel crusher jaw would have less wear in general because it’s a jaw crusher they typically wear less. So you get more life out of the wear parts and let’s say an impactor which is more of a high maintenance higher wear product but again it would be your particular needs we want to see what you’re doing. We need to make sure we’re providing you with the right solution and then we need to make sure that the where parts don’t eat you out of house and home. So it’s a great question. But overall you can imagine if you’re making let’s say five hundred one thousand dollars an hour where the crusher let’s say the rebel OK and you’re where parts are maybe you know I don’t know twenty five cents a ton or whatever we can we can run the numbers for you. It’s not going to be a big concern for you. Still a great question and give us a call so we can go over it more detail and just answer it accurately. OK. Thanks Scott. Have a good day. 

Happy 4th of July – Office Closing

What’s your return on your investment in crushing?

Should you look at the overall budget or is it more important to focus on the return on your investment? Listen to what Bob with Rebel Crusher has to say on this important topic.

 

Hey welcome back to Rebel Crusher. I’m Bob and we’re going to be answering your questions about crushing material whether it’s concrete, asphalt, brick, any waste product. 

 

So, today it looks like we have Jennifer from Wisconsin and Jennifer’s question is I have a specific budget in mind, can you meet my budget?

 

Okay. Well we probably have a product that would meet your budget but more importantly Jen I would say are you getting the right machine? You know, what are your needs, right? You want to focus on not so much your budget but what’s the right machine’s going to make or save you money, right? At the end of the day it’s all about your return on your investment. Not necessarily the lowest investment, okay? It’s more about making sure that you get the right machine for your business, correct? So, whether that’s something that is huge, if you’ve got massive amounts of material or you need something really, really small because you’re just a homebuilder and from time to time you’re cleaning up a little bit of debris. The average person will gravitate towards the Rebel Crusher because it’s a medium size system, it’s affordable, it’s 50 states legal, weighs less than 20 tons, has a huge feed opening, makes beautiful products and that just gives you that versatility and mobility to do basically anything you want to do. 

 

Yes, it may be a little bit more than some other things out on the market but I would tend to focus rather than on a budget making sure that whatever investment you’re making makes sense for your business. Again, I’d focus on the ROI, the return on your investment. That’s what you want to look at, that’s how I would look at any machine I was purchasing. 

 

So, I hope that answers your question and feel free to call us with more details and everything about your business and we can dive right into that for you make sure we’re providing you with the right unit, okay? Thank you very much. 

 

What is the Benefit of Making More than One Product with the Rebel Crusher?

The ability to make multiple, clean and beautiful products is explained by Bob with Rebel Crusher. Don’t forget to subscribe!

Hey guys. Welcome back to Rebel Crusher. I’m Bob and today we’re going to be answering a question from…. looks like Joe from Massachusetts and Joe’s question is what is the benefit of being able to make three or four different sized products? 

 

So, Joe that’s a great question and in general the benefit to that would be that you’re able to basically produce a product for any market, any guy that wants you to make something specific, right.? So, some people just want you to make base material. In other words, you’re making little pieces out of big pieces and that might be fine. But let’s just say that you have a job or someone wants you to make three quarter inches at the same time, they want you to make some 2-inch or 3-inch rocks, half inch minus and they want you to make that all at the same time. Well each one of those products would have a different value. So being able to make three or four different products whether it’s at the same time or separately is a huge benefit to you because now you’re able to get more money per size, per product and also, you’re able to make a product that is in demand. So, that is critical because let’s just say in Massachusetts the most popular product is clean three quarter, what if the machine doesn’t do that? Like what do you do then? I mean at the end of the day some of these real small machines or big machines that are out in the market don’t make the product. I mean we see some of these smaller machines that are coming into the market from China or Europe and they’re cute. If you don’t have a screening system on board then how do you actually make the different sizes that you or your customer you know want to be able to make? It is critical that you’re able to make these different sized products and the Rebel Crusher allows you to do that and it’s all on board. So, that screening system on the Rebel is being operated off the same diesel that runs the crusher and so you’ve got your own quarry on track; you’re able to make three or four different products all at the same time, you can then change the size of the screens, possibly change the crusher setting in order to make these different products and it’s simple to do, it’s easy, it’s a one or two guy operation depending on who’s there and you know to make those products that they again are in demand. That’s what you want to focus on and that’s what the Rebel is there for you. 

 

So, when you get a chance shoot us another e-mail, call in and we’ll be happy to look at the whole picture of your company, what you want to do but hope that answers your question. Thank you very much. 

What should you take into consideration when buying a crusher?

Do you know what to take into consideration when buying a crusher? Bob explains what makes the Rebel Crusher the right choice when it comes to choosing a crusher. Whether jaw or impact, see what the Rebel Crusher can do for you!

 

Welcome back to Rebel Crusher. I’m Bob and today we’re going to be answering another question. 

 

We’ve got an email from Janet in Wisconsin and Janet wants to know what are some of the most important things I should consider when trying to choose a crusher?

 

Okay, Janet. So, it’s a great question, it’s a broad question so it’s a little bit more difficult to answer that. But what I would focus on Janet would be what exactly are your needs, right? I mean what exactly do you want to do? You know so depending on your particular operation, I don’t know any of your background but let’s just say your you’re handling a bunch of concrete for example, the question would be how much? And you want to make sure that you get a machine that can handle what you currently have and possibly you know the foreseeable future because you want to be able to get a machine that kind of grows as your business grows.

 

So, you don’t want something too small and you don’t want something too large, expensive; I mean it’s all about making the right investment for your business and a little bit into the future to make sure you’re making money every day, every week, every month. So, when you’re looking at you know what crusher I’d be more focus on what crusher is going to generate income, save you money. So, there’s so many factors to consider. I’d look at hey material quality probably number one. Make sure that whatever you’re looking at makes the product you want. Looking at the Rebel we can make any product you want and you can change it at will. So, the ability to make three quarter one hour and make you know clean half inch another hour that is really a huge benefit at the versatility of something like the Rebel where the crusher and the screening system are all on board, I just think that that’s probably going to be my number one criterion for you know moving forward on any kind of crusher decision. 

 

So, in general we do want to look further into what your particular needs are but you want to think about what’s going to make and save you money? What products do you need to make? Are you in a hurry? I mean do you need 150 tons per hour? Are you okay with 100 tons per hour? And you know and then just base your decision on that. Hope it answers your question. Hey, call us and we’ll get into it more detail, okay? Thanks Janet. Take care. 

What is the Difference Between a Jaw Crusher & an Impact Crusher?

Do you know the difference? Bob with Rebel Crusher explains this and more!

Welcome back to Rebel Crusher and today we’re going to be answering a question from Justin. It doesn’t say where Justin is from but this particular question looks like it really doesn’t matter where he’s from. 

 

So, what is the difference between a jaw crusher and an impact crusher and why would I use one over the other? 

 

So, Justin we hear that question all the time. You know people are you know they hear one thing over another and in general it has to do with what material you want to produce and what you’re actually crushing. So, with let’s say an impact crusher for example we typically use that to pulverize make very, very small product that you can imagine an impactor is in the name, right? It impacts the material, it explodes it. So, we’re not putting granite in an impactor, we typically don’t like to put steel in them. More than likely we would use an impactor in softer material, application possibly asphalt where we’re looking to grind up asphalt really, really small. Otherwise in most other applications where we’re crushing concrete with rebar, rock, sand and gravel, most asphalt you know bricks, block anything like that the Jaw Crusher is just so much easier to operate. Less dust, less maintenance, the wear parts are less expensive, you’re changing them less frequently. So, in general the impactor is something we use only for a specific application. We’re grinding up gold, we want to make a bunch of powder, we’d use an impactor and we might even use a jaw ahead of it so the jaw would take the brunt of it and then feed it into an impactor. But just vice versa you know looking at the differences the rule of thumb in general is if you can crush with a jaw don’t use an impactor. So, we’re only really bringing that impactor into the equation when we absolutely have to. And I’m sure I’m going to get some heat from that. People will say oh that’s not true we can use our impactor for this and that, yeah, well possibly you’re right but at the end of the day almost any expert would say if you can use a jaw and it makes the product you want, use the jaw. Slower speed, kind of slow and steady, it wins the race kind of thing, jaw is running around 250 rpm, they’re squeezing the material together and letting it go down whereas the impactor is exploding the material, runs around 1000rpm. So, just use your common sense; which one would you rather run? Which one would you rather have if by accident your guys threw a manhole cover or an anvil or let’s say a fire hydrant and by the way we’ve had tons of clients that have sent us e-mails hey my rebel crusher just ate a toilet bowl, a transmission by accident and it’s still kept going. So again, the jaw we have both, Rebel has an impactor and a jaw, so I’m not pro one or the other, I’m more interested in the product you want to make. 

 

So, hope that answers your question, feel free to give us a call we’ll go into more detail. So, thank you very much. 

 

We will be closed for Memorial Day

In observance of the Memorial Day Holiday, our office will be closed on Monday, May 27,  2019.  We will re-open on Tuesday at 8 AM. Thank you.

Is Production Really the Most Important Thing in Crushing

Bob with Rebel Crusher tackles this important question and more in our new video series. Don’t forget to subscribe!

 

How Big of a Concern is the Feed Opening and/or the Engine Horsepower of a Crusher?

How Big of a Concern is the Feed Opening and/or the Engine Horsepower of a Crusher? Bob with Rebel Crusher answers this question for you!

Hey guys. This is Bob at Rebel Crusher. Today we’re gonna be taking some questions. We’ve got people that have been e-mailing us and we want to answer your questions and some of you had some really great questions. Depending on where you’re located in the world we’ve got Rebels all over.

 

 

So, today we’re going to be taking an e-mail from Mike in Miami. His question is how big of a concern is the feed opening and or the horsepower of the engine? Well not as big of a concern as how can the machine make or save you money? Right Mike? I mean that’s really what’s important. But if you start looking at you know the different options that are out there certainly there’s other crushers on the market other than the Rebel. The feed opening can be very important because now you’re looking at how much material prep do I have to do before I throw it into the crusher? So, you don’t want something tiny-tiny and you don’t want or necessarily need something that’s seven feet wide. At the end of the day what you are looking at is a happy medium that you know it basically provides value for you, requires minimal amount of preparation and so the rebel crusher essentially is the largest crusher that you can buy that’s still 50 states legal. So, you’re getting a huge feed opening, you can move it into downtown Miami, no permit, it weighs less than 20 tons and the overall feed opening is 3 feet wide by almost 2 feet across. And so, it becomes a big deal when you’re taking chunks of material and you want to see well what can this machine handle? And your guys are sitting there prepping. Can you imagine running a machine that has only a 16-inch or a 24-inch feed opening and you’re having to prep everything this small in order to put it through? I mean your guys will spend 3 or 4 hours prepping and 15 minutes crushing.

 

So, you want to find that happy medium that allows you to do minimal prep and still takes a big chunk and you guys will just keep going. I mean that’s the idea is find that right machine. Obviously, we believe the Rebel is that right machine and with the horsepower of the engine it’s critical because if the engine is under horsepowered for example the machine is going to come to a dead stop every time it hits some rebar or concrete. So, we build a typical American product, big feet opening, over 200 horsepower, it doesn’t stop. And the idea is you don’t want it to stop, you don’t want your machine stopping, you don’t want your guys to get tired trying to feed it, okay? So, call in with your you know particular needs and so we can do an assessment but overall, I hope that answers your question. We greatly appreciate it and give us a call or shoot us an email, I’ll be happy to help you, okay? Thanks Mike.

 

Should I Buy or Rent a Crusher?

Bob with Rebel Crusher answers your questions! Check out the link below!

 

 

 

Hey guys. This is Bob at Rebel Crusher. It is another beautiful Carolina day, sun shining. Today we’re gonna be taking some questions. We’re looking at your e-mails. You guys have some great questions and relating to the Rebel Crusher I’m going to be taking a question today from looks like Ed in Chicago.

 

Ed’s question is, can you explain why I would consider buying a machine instead of just renting a machine?

 

Well, that’s a great question and we hear that you know every day. Why should I buy a crusher, right? Or why should I buy any machine for that matter? And the simple answer is that rental is typically a short-term option, right? I mean you know if you think you’re never going to crush again or you’re never gonna use the machine again you know why buy one? And you know we’d be the first people to tell you that it doesn’t make sense to buy something if it’s just a onetime deal. And you know if you’re going to you know look at let’s say a small job in downtown Chicago and you know and you’re willing to spend because most crushers will rent for let’s say $25,000 a month if the job justifies that I’d say go ahead and rent it you know for that one job. If you’re never going to crush again, you’re never going to do any screening then you know I’d say rent, definitely. But if you’re in the concrete business let’s say you’re a demolition contractor you know I don’t have a lot information on you, I’m just looking at one question but once I know your background you know we’re going to look at different things like, are you ever going to deal with concrete again? You’re getting concrete with rebar, you tear a building down, bricks, asphalt; are you pulling up sidewalk, curb, gutter? I mean are these products that you’re handling all the time? If the answer is, yes, then we definitely need to look at ownership. I mean you’d save yourself thousands and thousands of dollars. I mean it’s kind of like the concept of you know leasing your car versus buying your car, most people you know if you look at it over time it’s much more expensive to give the car back every three years, same thing with your home, same concept. You don’t typically rent your home you know you buy it.

 

So, with the crusher it’s a mathematical formula. We would look at the amount of usage you think you’re going to do per year, per month and then we just look at the exorbitant costs of renting – crushers are some of the most expensive machines to rent. Typically, you’re making the dealer very wealthy and very happy by doing any kind of rental. You can imagine $25,000 a month that adds up very quickly. Most guys are getting into a crusher no matter what it is. I mean the Rebel is definitely the best value that’s out there significantly less than $10,000 a month. If the average rent is $25,000 thousand a month you can see the justification for ownership.

 

So, hope that answers your question and you know please keep them coming and do me a favor call in and we’ll have a salesperson you know walk you through your particular situation to make sure we’re answering that question properly. Thank you very much.
