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. 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, 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? You don’t want something teeny-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. 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 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 feed 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 particular needs so we can do an assessment. 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.
