Investment in Rockster impact crusher pays off

By Steve Ducker01 February 2022

After almost 20 years of experience in recycling and processing material with a stationary crusher, Austria-based Kober Transporte decided to invest in a brand new, track-mounted mobile Rockster R1000S impact crusher to optimise its daily work load and produce a clean, high-quality end product. 

Located in Mistelbach, in the north east of the country, Kober Transporte has its own recycling centre handling mainly demolition waste, asphalt and concrete.

“The main decision to invest in a Rockster was made mostly by our team of machine operators and a workshop manager,“ said CEO Anna Kober.

“They have to work with the crusher and they play an integral role in the decision-making process.“

Workshop manager Peter Schmid added: “We have tested four or five different mobile crushers and for us the whole Rockster package was tailored exactly to the needs of our company.

“Stepless regulation of the crusher speed allows us more control while recycling different materials and the height of the magnetic separator is hydraulically adjustable.

“Not forgetting, of course, the air blower. It works flawlessly and blows away light material, nobody has to remove it by hand. Our material simply has to be clean and the air blower is the optimal, very efficient solution for this.”

The Rockster crusher R1000S is said to be easy to transport and with the hydraulically foldable screenbox discharge belt, the length of the system is only 14 m (46 ft). At 2.83 m (9 ft 2 in) wide, 3.2 m (10 ft 6 in) high and weighing just under 35 t it can be transported with the company’s own truck with no transport permits needed.
