The RM 90GO! owned by the demolition and recycling company 108 Excavating started operation in northern Arizona. Great productivity, high quality aggregate and top quality service are the main reasons for the investment, explains 108 owner Billy Todd. One of the first jobs for the new compact crusher was the demolition of an old hotel on the legendary Route 66.
108 Excavating is a company that specialises in demolition, excavating and recycling in Flagstaff, a medium-sized city located high up in the mountains of Arizona. Billy Todd (owner) turned to Titan Machinery, a construction machinery dealership with whom he has worked together for many years. He was looking for a sound investment to extend his current offering and increase profitability and competitiveness.
Kevin Smith (Area Sales Manager at Titan Machinery) introduced Billy to the principles of RUBBLE MASTER machines: set up in just 15 minutes, straightforward transport, rapid maintenance and precision in the sorting accuracy of the screened materials thanks to the RM mesh deck screen. Plus, high productivity, high aggregate value and intuitive operation as well as availability of technicians and spare parts at any time. In a nutshell, a crusher that is ideal for processing and recycling directly on the job site.
Hotel demolition on the legendary Route 66
One of the first jobs for Billy Todd’s new RM 90GO! was the demolition of a hotel on the historical Route 66. The perfect job for the powerful crusher: after the hotel had been demolished, the remains needed to be processed. “We crushed the rubble into a fine aggregate with a diameter of less than three inches. The crusher was set up and ready for operation within a few minutes. Each bucket that was emptied into the crusher was cash in our pocket”, said Billy Todd, impressed by the work delivered by his new investment. Route 66 is a major part of American culture – and it makes the full-blooded American proud to be contributing to the upkeep of this cultural highlight.
Our crushers in action
The RM 90GO! has an unmatched performance / footprint ratio which allows contractors to use this machine on inner-city construction sites, indoor sites as well as in the mountains. The beefy 6 cylinder John Deere engine provides the power to crush up to 200 TPH.

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

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.
