First Rockster Impactor from New Headquarters Already in Action

Published: 5/5, 2020

The first R1000S impact crusher, from Rockster’s new headquarters facility in Mühlviertel, Austria, is already working hard for Hopf Bagger KG, an earthworks and forestry specialist. A 6-acre (2.4 hectare) site is now being subdivided into 23 plots for single-family and semi-detached houses. The Rockster Scalping Screen RSS410 has already been a valuable asset for this project.

“Thanks to the mobile screener, we can process all the excavated material from the construction site and repurpose it again immediately,” says CEO Martin Hopf. “We use all generated fractions: the 32/60 and 16/32 roll gravel for drainage, 8/16 material as channel chippings and the fine material 0/8 as cable sand. We do not have to transport and dispose the material, nor do we need new raw material. This saves us a lot of time and money and also protects the environment.

In mid-November 2018, Hopf took delivery of the R1000S. “Although we are crushing extremely rough gravel here, the cubic end material that we get with the crusher is perfect,” he says. The first day of operation, operators were crushing 138 tons per hour to less than 1.25 in (32mm).

The compactness of the R1000S Impact Crusher is particularly important. Hopf can transport it with his own truck, which brings maximum flexibility. This plays a major role in the newly targeted contractor business.

“The height-adjustable magnetic separator helps to remove iron, while the screen box is mounted quickly, so you can meet a variety of customer requirements,” Hopf says. “The belt scale ensures an easy and correct billing. In combination with the scalping screen we have, we can generate three precisely defined fractions in a single operation.”

The Rockster double-apron design and the two-deck pre-screen system was exactly what convinced Martin Hopf that R1000S is the optimal machine for his company.

“The R1000S is a well-designed and finely constructed machine that can optimize the crushing process with ease and great accuracy,” Hopf says with confidence. “The engine compartment is easily accessible, and the components are not too complicated.”

Rockster sales manager Norbert Feichtinger adds that during development of each Rockster crusher, “we put great effort and importance to engine accessibility. If the engine is easily accessible, maintenance will be easier. It will be done regularly and most importantly – it’s cost effective. All of these add to the longevity of our machines where quality is our number-one priority.”
