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

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.

 

How Much Money Can I Make Crushing Concrete?

Today’s question: How Much Money Can I Make Crushing Concrete is answered by Bob Rossi of RR Equipment. In this video Bob takes you through the details about how much money you can actually make using the Rebel Crusher to crush concrete on a job site. We hope you enjoy this video (and the many more videos to come):

This is Rebel Crusher Q and A. I’m Bob. And today we’re gonna be taking questions whether you call in or e-mail regarding your needs whether you’re processing concrete, asphalt, rocks. Basically, we’re here to answer any of your questions and it looks like we have an e-mail today from Rick in New York and Rick’s e-mail says, how much money could I make or save if I’m recycling concrete?

So, Rick, great question. It does have a lot to do with where you’re located. So, you know I would look at the New York rates for what crushed concrete is selling for. Possibly as a barometer you’d look at the price of crushed stone in your area and that would give you a general idea what you can expect to make if you’re crushing concrete. In general, we want to make sure you’re making the right products, right? Because it doesn’t do any good to make the wrong product whether it’s fast or slow. So, we want to make sure we’re making the product that’s in demand. So, once we’re doing that then typically I mean just give you a nationwide average; average clients let’s say run in the Rebel Crusher are going to generate $500 to $1,000 an hour. Okay. So, you figure on the low end $500 an hour, 8-hour day; $,4,000 a day, 5 days a week, $20,000 a week, okay? So, it’s obviously a license to steal. Now, yes, there are definitely considerations that go beyond just the gross profit, gross number, right? You want to look at you know what are all your costs? But at the end of the day the costs are significantly less than $,4,000 a day. Typically, the number one costs to run the Rebel is fuel. It costs you about $21 an hour. If you’re grossing 500 plus an hour you know it really doesn’t make that much of a difference. Yes, you can look at all the other factors, you know your labor costs, the loader that’s feeding it, your monthly payment but it’s so healthy, so profitable that you really don’t have to focus on that as much as you have to focus on where am I getting the material from and basically you know where is my market? Who am I going to sell it to?

So, but if you have those things lined up, you can use the broad strokes around $4,000 $5,000 a day gross and you know that would answer your question, how much money can I make? As far as saving money I’d be looking at your landfill costs, how much is it costing you to haul away? Your trucking fees. These are all things that factor in and basically that’s gravy for you. You know your potential savings okay is just gravy on what you’re actually going to sell the material for.

So, we do want to look at you in particular, so call us, e-mail us so that you know we can dive into your particular situation and hone in on you know is the Rebel the right machine for you. But I mean we’ve got them all over New York and everybody in the New York area is making money with it. They’re very happy. So, it’s probably the perfect machine for you. But give us a call. Great question. Look forward to hear from you. Thanks Rick.
