The Rubble Master RM 90GO! processor in operation
Austrian recycling business Halbeisen & Prast has bought its fourth crusher from Rubble Master
The Vorarlberg-based company has acquired a Rubble Master RM 90GO! crusher, which will be used for functions such as processing natural stones in the mountains around the region and recycling in the valley areas.
Günter Prast, is MD of the Earthworks Team at Halbeisen & Prast. He started building up the recycling business in Dornbirn, Bregenz, Feldkirch and Bludenz in 1999 with a hook-lift RM 60, and the company now employs 25 people.
"We started out small and did a number of jobs building access roads at 2,000metres above sea level," says Prast.
The demand for recycling and processing natural stone on site increased and became more and more profitable, so that six years later he bought a new, larger crusher, the RM 80.
At Halbeisen & Prast the RM 90 GO! operates around 800 hours a year and is mainly used for their own projects. However, it is also rented out to customers for around 20% of the year, such as in April this year to Feldkirch-based construction company Hilti & Jehle. The RM 90 GO! was on site for three weeks at Hilti & Jehle and crushed 15,000 tonnes of asphalt, with the materials being recycled as an additive.
