The rebuilding of Austria’s highest railway station – “Schneeberg” – came with major challenges for everyone involved. The most economical solution for the customer was clearly to recycle and reuse the material on site.
This cost-saving option was possible only with a small but high-performance crusher – the RM 60 including final screen, which was able to make the journey up to 1,800 m above sea level on the “Salamander” cog railway. The RM 60 was just as powerful as the small cog railway that carried it to the job site as it processed 5,000 cubic metric tonnes of limestone. The smallest RM crusher handled the entire processing in a single step, thus saving a number of expensive steps: the complex and time-consuming transportation of the natural stone to the valley on the cog railway, forwarding it to a place where it can be recycled and then taking all the construction material back up to the job site on the mountain.
Our crushers in action
The RM 60 is the most compact impact crusher available and the ideal choice for contractors and aggregate producers who are looking to process smaller quantities or excess materials. The 29,000 lbs machine can produce a variety of finished spec products.

Crushing at a high output and low wear, and that in every possible and impossible location, is not an issue for RM crushers. They manage to generate the highest quality value grain from natural stone on site. Depending on the desired combination of machinery. The end result is always cubic aggregate.
Quartz gravel, granite and riverbed gravel are not easy to process because high levels of quartz cause high wear. However, RM crushers are designed for such materials: thanks to their compact size they can achieve high throughputs even in tight spaces, producing valuable aggregate directly on site at all times.
Processing 24,000 tons of gravel with a quartz content of around 90 percent to produce 0-32 mm value grain
– that was the right challenge for the RM 100GO!. The mobile power pack with its wear-resistant hammers rose to this challenge in the Vienna basin extremely economically. Excavator and loader drivers are impressed.
Building roads to connect to eastern Mexico was difficult because of the problematic terrain. It was necessary to prepare materials on site because of the remote locations of the construction sites. The RM70 GO! is ideal for challenges like this. Its manoeuvrability make it a perfect machine.
The Swiss company Mühlebach AG has been successfully processing gravel for 40 years. As pioneers in this business field, they demand machines that are state of the art. They have now added an RM V550GO! to their fleet of machines in order to meet the demand for crushed sand and grit.
River gravel is processed on a regular basis at this gravel pit. An excavator is used to feed in the round material which always has to be screened into three fractions. The TS3600 produces several defined material sizes from round material and separates sand, gravel and grit. Output was up to 200 t/h.
