Making an Impact
There are many decisions we need to take in our work lives. When it comes to dealing with maximising the feed materials such as demolition waste, the choice of crusher is key; different brands and most importantly impact or jaw crushers?
A few years ago, it would have been a short conversation, jaw crushers accounted for roughly 90% of the market, it was the go-to product. Today we see a shift in the market, there has been a new kid on the block, impact crushers have eaten into the share and now account for 20% of the UK crusher market. Leading that charge is Austrian firm Rubble Master who were introduced to the UK market three years ago by their distributor Red Knight 6 Ltd (RK6).
“Advances and changes in the construction industry have affected material spec over the years. Rough, irregular product is not acceptable anymore, this has seen an increase in the demand for impact crushers where you can get a versatile and high-quality aggregate,” said Paul Donnelly, Managing Director at RK6.
“When we started RK6 we wanted to work with the best manufacturers in their field, Rubble Master lead in the mobile impact crushing sector. The range of Rubble Master products we’re able to bring to the UK market can deal with anything from demolition and construction waste through to stone, glass or reinforced concrete. This flexibility is key to our customers. The Rubble Master machines have been built specifically for the recycling and quarrying industries,” continued Paul.
RK6 offers five Rubble Master products in the UK, starting with the hook lift, 12 tonne RM60, through to the recently available 42 tonne RM 120GO! All the machines in the range are highly mobile, easy to transport and have low running costs due to the hybrid electric hydraulic design.
“The range is so versatile in terms of working in any size of site and the product it can handle and the high tonnage that can be achieved wherever companies need. It means higher prices for the output product,” added Paul. “We offer full training and support on the range to support customers after the initial investment.”
