Page 76 of 107 ROCK products • March 2017 • 75 EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY CRUSHING & BREAKING MB Crusher manufactures a line of jaw crusher attachments that will allow producers to easily move with their equipment and crush material right where they are. "If you're working in a small or tight area, you'll want to save all the time and money you can, espe- cially if you need to transport material to be processed. With our attachments, you can crush it right there on-site and reuse the materials," said Max Ravaz- zolo, CEO of MB Crusher America Inc. "You can eliminate huge transport costs by crushing it immediately on-site. And it will save you a lot of space in your small area." MB's attachments use the hydraulic system on excavators, skid loaders, loaders and backhoes, and allow opera- tors the flexibility to work in tight areas, difficult access locations, steep slopes and urban areas. Operators will be able to reuse materials immediately at the job site and provide a greener option in recycling materials. The BF90.3 crushing attachment is the company's most popular model for small to medium jobs. It is designed for excavators weighing more than 46,300 lb. It has an adjustable output and a productivity range of 16 cy/h to 54 cy/h. The BF90.3 crushing attachment has load capacity of 1.18 cy. It crushes hollow core walls, railway sleepers, reinforced and non-reinforced con- crete, natural stone and asphalt into reusable aggregate materials for base or fill. The BF90.3 crusher is one of many in MB's product line. The smallest crusher weighs less than 1,700 lb. while its larg- est crusher weighs more than 23,000 lb. The company has produced crushing attachments for loaders, skid loaders, backhoes and excavators, and accom- modates to a wide range of brands and sizes. In addition to crushing attachments, MB offers trommel screening attach- ments, 360-degree rotation grapples and dual head rotary drum cutters for a wide scope of work, which includes demolition and excavation, road work, quarries, mining, pipeline work and environmental reclamation projects. MB Crusher America, www.mbamer-, 855-622-7874 Eagle Crusher Introduces Two New Product Innovations Eagle Crusher Co. Inc. announced that its two newest product innovations, RapidDeploy and RipRap, will be on dis- play in the Eagle Crusher booth, number C31427, at ConExpo-ConAgg 2017. RapidDeploy is the industry's only portable plant with built-in, retract- able conveyors that can crush, screen, separate, and stockpile – all in one pull. It was specifically designed to significantly reduce mobilization costs and expensive set-up and tear-down time for aggregate/asphalt producers and concrete recyclers, while offering numerous advantages compared to track plants. First, RapidDeploy features closed-cir- cuit crushing, screening and retractable conveyors on one chassis with more productive screening capability than its closed-circuit, track-plant counterparts. Next, RapidDeploy features higher discharge heights on all three of its retractable conveyors than avail- able track plants, allowing for easier truck-loading of material and moving stockpiled material less often than with track units. Finally, RapidDeploy is easily serviced without sacrificing portability. This is due to the plant's open design, which allows for easier parts access and ser- viceability than with tight, confined track units. RipRap was specially designed to pro- vide aggregate producers with the ultimate portable plant in high pro- duction screening – featuring two, 5-ft., adjustable grizzly decks and the widest feeder in the industry at 67-in. x 24-ft. The plant's reversible cross conveyor allows for a variety of on-site set-up options to further accommodate producers' needs and help expand their product portfolios. RipRap is available in both diesel and electric. The innovations are just two more examples of Eagle Crusher's more than 100-year heritage designing and manu- facturing unsurpassed quality products that fulfill producers' needs, enhance their product offerings, and help maxi- mize their profits.
