Linz-based Rubble Master was founded on 18 September 1991 and large corporations, family-owned businesses and one-man companies use its advanced technology crushers and screening equipment.

The company commented on the anniversary: "Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation we have no possibility to celebrate with all of you in Linz. However, we keep our fingers crossed that we can toast on 30+1 years in 2022.

Helmut Hauser, owner of Hauser Transporte based in Stumm, Austria, bought his fourth RM crusher - an RM 90GO! - in spring this year. The machine was handed over to him by Max Keplinger, RM account manager for Tirol and Vorarlberg.

"At RM, the product is just right, you receive good service and you have the personal contact," said Hauser. "I will definitely stay with Rubble Master if I know that I can rely on everything like that."

Hauser is particularly enthusiastic about the single deck mesh screen and the pivoting refeeding belt: "The mesh screen is easy to operate and can be transported together with the crusher. We simply unload our RUBBLE MASTER at the job site and can start crushing."

The RM RM 90GO! crusher recycles C&D waste, concrete and asphalt around 500 hours a year, and granite or limestone for another 500 hours. RM says that, due to their compact size, its crushers are also ideal for job sites that are difficult to access, as is evidenced in its use by Hauser Transporte at the Hintertux glacier, where rock was processed to produce road gravel.

Hauser entered the processing business in 2001 when they purchased an RM 80. This area now accounts for 20% of the firm's business and the family-owned company now employs 40 people.

RM customer Günter Prast, MD of Halbeisen & Prast KG in Dornbirn, says: "Service has an extremely high priority at RM, who have had a 24-hour service hotline since the beginning, something very few suppliers offered 20 years ago.

"Every spare part arrives within 24 hours, which is really sensational."

Hermann Dünser from Bizau says that, as a two-person company in the Bregenz Forest region, the reliability of the machines is particularly important for his operation. Most of his jobs are for private customers, with small commercial companies and municipal operations accounting for around 20 % each.

"If I have to transport 200m³ of rubble and then bring new material to the job site, it costs me too much time," says Dünser. "My own crusher makes me more flexible. The Rubble Master crushers are very handy, easy to transport and ready for immediate use. They are also convenient for small business owners like me."
