Photo What is this?

Good morning, I scanned this from a farm mag at work where the readers send pics to identify. Whatever it is, sure is heavy duty. Thought maybe one of you guys could ID it. Some kind of press? Or cutter? David.

Exclamation Re: What is this?

The item on the old cart looks like a portable rock crusher, used for road and construction work. I believe. The one on the trailer looks like a stamping mill,used to reclaim mineral ores for processing. The stamping type mill breaks the rock into finer pieces, so when the ore is heated, more metal can be reclaimed.

Now that they have the crusher who are the lucky guys that get to bring the rock and get to haul away the gravel? BobRR
