Genesis Attachments has expanded its Genesis Demolition Recycler (GDR) line to include the GDR 150 and GDR 300. The new models join the GDR 200 for processing concrete in both demolition and recycling applications.

Designed for third-member use on 16.5 and 33 ton (15 and 30 t) machines, the new model GDRs deliver 85 tons (77 t) of crushing force at the tip for the GDR 150 and 148 tons (134 t) for the GDR 300. The GDR 150 offers a jaw opening of 26 in. (66 cm) and jaw depth of 25 in. (63.5 cm), while its larger counterpart, the GDR 300, has a jaw opening of 42 in. (106.7 cm) and a jaw depth of 28 in. (71 cm).

Quick cycle times and tremendous crushing forces are made possible through use of a regeneration valve and a large-bore cylinder, respectively, according to the manufacturer.

“Both of these new models bring an added dimension to the demolition contractor’s operation,” according to Dan Raihala, Genesis Attachments’ design engineer. “They now have the ability to utilize a lighter-weight, yet more powerful processing tool on a standard or high-reach machine, which can really open the door to previously unbiddable projects.”

Both new models, like the GDR 200 before them, can be ordered as any of three available configurations: shearing, concrete cracking, or concrete pulverizing. With this range of choices, contractors crack/crush concrete; cut pipe, rebar or structural steel; or, with the tooth-heavy pulverizer configuration, demolish or downsize oversized concrete in a concrete recycling application.
