HOW SMALL do they crush down to?
For Valley Paving, they find that the material they create is “better than the base from a quarry” due to the adjustable output size, but they crush down to an inch and a half.
Then for Nellis Air Force Base, they’ve taken advantage of the adjustable output size, creating aggregates ranging from 5 inches to a 2 inch minus. For “bigger stuff [they] use for ditchways […] so water can run through. And the smaller stuff, we use for different applications, like tightening up our base coarse for concrete jobs.”
What are some BENEFITS?
When we asked them what they thought was the concrete crusher’s biggest benefit, they both said that the biggest benefit was they save money by minimizing their hauling fees. For Valley Paving, they’ve minimized how often they’ve had to haul material. Instead they haul the material to their yard instead of a quarry and recycling the materials on their job site.
Nellis Air Force Base also hauls their concrete to their location, which they call their “training site” then crush the materials right there before re-purposing the aggregates.
