Default Re: Eureka stone & ore crucher

I have a small Cedar Rapids with a 6 in jaw. I run it with a 5 or 6 hp engine. My Crusher does not have a elevator so I hand feed it one rock at a time, I try to get rock 4 to 6 in. it make a great display. I run the belt off of the pulley on the side of the flywheel. My big crusher has 12 in jaws and we run it with a tractor, and can feed it as fast as we can. The small one makes a better display you do not need to get as much rock. I only use soft limestone it well not kick back and hit someone like it can with hard stone. Bob Ronning

Bob, How fast do you run your crushers. Is one on a cart. I am trying to find how they might have been set up originaly on a cart, what engine that might have used. There is a picture of mine at blizzardbranch.com John

Your crusher looks great on the cart with the 6hp Witte. It looks like that engine should run the crusher fine. I have found out that with a engine I am running it too slow for high volume but it makes a great show just running it at the engine speed and feeding it slow. If I have a lot of rock that I need to do I run the crusher with a tractor. Have fun, Bob
