Epiroc bucket crushers combine low maintenance and high performance while processing a wide range of materials, including aggregate, asphalt and concrete. Bucket crushers allow contractors to increase the versatility of carriers, especially on demolition, recycling and road construction applications. The powerful drive systems and high reliability make them ideal alternatives to mobile jaw crushers for cramped work sites.

The attachments feature powerful components that allow carrier operators to crush as much as 110 tons of material per hour. The drive system — two hydraulic motors and a timing belt — generates the high torque needed for powering the crushing jaw. The attachments also feature a reverse function to easily remove any blockage by pushing material back through the inlet.

Crushing material onsite allows contractors to save on transportation costs to a landfill or processing center since more material can be fit into each truckload. Crushed material also can be reused onsite as backfill, which reduces the costs associated with hauling in material.

The Epiroc internally mounted drive system eliminates protruding components to minimize the risk of dust entering the hydraulic system and to protect key components from flying debris. Additionally, operators can control the diameter of the crushed materials by easily adjusting the jaw outlet without any special tools. This keeps set-up times to a minimum and allows operators to create varying material sizes.
