How does the RM diesel-electric drive work?
The diesel-engine runs a generator and all auxiliary drives are electrically driven. The crusher rotor is directly driven by the diesel engine via V-belts. The rotor is engaged and disengaged via a manual twin-disc clutch and a hydraulic coupling for a soft start.
Electric powered auxiliary drives
- Feed hopper
- Discharge conveyors
- Screen attachement
Crusher rotor is directly driven by the diesel engine via v-belts.
Manual twin-disc clutch to engage/disengage the crusher. Soft start via a hydraulic coupling.
Small hydraulic system to operate cylinders and tracking the machine.
The whole industry is now moving towards electric.
RUBBLE MASTER has been electric for 30 years!
RUBBLE MASTER has been manufacturing diesel-electric crushers since our beginnings in 1991. It has proven to be a reliable and efficient drive system for a crusher and recent developments towards electrification of construction equipment proves that we were on the right path 3 decades ago.
Burn up to 30% less fuel than same size diesel-hydraulic machines.
Works Well in Extreme Temperatures
No overheating in the summer time and no heating up in winter.
Less than 30 gal
Small hydraulic system for auxiliary functions only.
Reversible Conveyor Belts
Due to electric driven conveyor belts the direction of all conveyor belts can be reversed to undo a jam.
Run conveyor belts individually for maintenance or to clear a belt before transport.
Reduced risk of major damages due to emergency shutdown procedures.
Easy to Troubleshoot
100% clear where the problem may be.
Low Noise Emissions
Surprisingly quiet crusher.
Track & Crush Simultanously
No loss of crushing power while moving the machine.
Ideal for Crushing Asphalt
RUBBLE MASTER uses a different radiator design that doesn't cause rapid material build-up and is much easier to clean with your feet on the ground.
Outstanding access to the radiator so that you can stay ahead of the curve easily. On 100GO! and 120GO! models the radiators swing out 90° for easy access of the back side.
Wide Core Radiator
Much easier to clean than narrow fins.
Engine compartment is well sealed off and easy to clean.
