Crushing and screening specialist Pilot Crushtec is launching the new Rubble Master RM80 GO!, an extensively updated edition of the popular RM80 compact recycling crusher which has operated in the country for the past 3 years.
"The RM80 GO! is a logical development of its predecessor's design. Following discussions with customers, Rubble Master engineers have over the past few years catalogued a list of potential improvements to the product and the RM80 GO! is the end result," says director sales Graham Kleinhans.
One of the most important features of the new Rubble Master is that manual controls have been replaced by a colour-coded pushbutton control system, which makes it exceptionally easy to operate.
"The RM80 GO! requires just a single operator who can set up and start the machine purely by pressing a series of buttons in the right sequence. In addition, this same operator can tram the Rubble Master around a site using its remote control system," says Kleinhans.
He adds that in a business where time is money, it should be noted that the RM80 GO! is capable of being offloaded and made ready for action within 10 minutes of arrival on site.
Significantly, it packs an even bigger punch than its predecessor. It is now supplied with a John Deere 6 cylinder engine, delivering 168kW at 1,800rpm, an increase of 38%. Lower engine revolutions mean lower fuel consumption, and the RM80 GO! consumes a minimal 18 litres per hour while, its maximum throughput has increased to 160 tonnes per hour.
Kleinhans is particularly enthusiastic about the functionality of the new design.
"Ease of maintenance was high on its designers' list of priorities and access to key components has improved to the extent that they can all be worked on from ground level. This will be a huge benefit for our customers, many of whom operate in rural areas."
He is quick to point out that the RM80 GO! is an ideal choice of product for use in business districts and residential areas. The crusher is fully compliant with European regulations in respect of noise and exhaust emissions, and is fitted with a self-contained dust suppression system.
Rubble Master is based in the Austrian city of Linz and its versatile compact crushers are used worldwide for the recycling of rubble, asphalt and concrete and crushing medium hard stone to produce saleable construction materials.
Every RM80 GO! is equipped with a magnetic separator as standard to ensure that crushed rock or concrete is produced free of metallic objects.
Based on the immediate success of its smaller brother, the RM70 GO!, Kleinhans is upbeat about the new product's prospects, especially with the constant demand for new and upgraded infrastructure in southern and central Africa.
