At Thompson Tractor, we supply a variety of crushing equipment for your one-off job sites — and we don't expect you to purchase a brand-new piece, necessarily. Renting any of our crushing and screening equipment allows you to complete your construction work without being left with machinery you either won't use again or feel the need to sellInquiry Online
Contractors who know they will be using the same equipment over and over again should consider the purchase of our crushers or screeners. All models are supported by legendary local heavy equipment service at a Thompson Tractor dealership near you
When you invest in any of our crushing and screening equipment used to recycle, you invest in your own work. The ability to recycle materials you work with can benefit you immediately or in the future. It all depends on the materials you have and where you want to recycle them
Some contractors will recycle the materials that are produced as a result of screening. Gravel, sand, and concrete pieces can be gathered and relocated for use at another construction site. Our equipment is capable of recycling materials at a rate of up to 100 tons per hour. This is useful if you have multiple small sites that are scheduled back-to-back. Instead of processing new areas over and over again, you can bring materials from a former site and develop them into a new area
Another benefit of using crushing and screening equipment to recycle construction is the value you can get. A construction project may have left you with an overwhelming amount of leftover materials. These can be sold afterward for additional profit, which could perhaps be used for your next Cat machinery purchase!
If the accessibility of your construction site is limited or maneuvering is difficult, then our line of portable crushing and screening equipment may be just what you need. We do not risk durability or efficiency in our portable machines. Each piece is controlled by remote so that any of your off-site areas may be explored. In addition, if you have a group of small jobs scheduled, renting portable crushing equipment can save you both time and money

Whether you're looking to own your own new or used crusher, or rent one for a single project, we are here to help you find the right match
Do you need an impact crusher to turn excess materials into a profitable product? Thompson Tractor can help. We have a veteran team of professionals to make sure you have the right product with the exact configuration you need to produce the desired result
If you have large rocks or other material, such as concrete rubble or concrete runouts that you would like to transform into smaller sizes, a crusher is the machine for the job. There are three types of crushers available – Cone Crushers, Impact Crushers and Jaw Crushers – which is the best choice for your application? Let’s find out
The first step in transforming large particles into small pieces is running them through a primary crusher – a crusher that takes raw material and crushes it smaller. The material can be virgin material or recycled material that has been prepared to a size that the crusher can handle. Sizing can involve the loading machine simply picking through oversize pieces or having a rock breaker on site that attaches to an excavator to reduce the size of the larger pieces. Both Impact Crushers and Jaw Crushers can be used as primary crushers. Here’s how each works:
Our Impact Crushers feature a four-bar rotor inside a large crusher chamber. The rotor typically has two “blow bars” that strike the raw material and knock it against aprons inside the chamber. Two “inactive bars” typically counterbalance the blow bars and help maintain the speed of the rotor. The raw material continues to be impacted within the chamber until is it sized to escape through the gap between the rotor bars and the chamber
Impact Crushers are best used with softer rock, such as limestone and sandstone, and for recycling processed materials like concrete and asphalt. Impact crushers tend to produce more “fines” than Jaw crushers
Jaw Crushers have two opposing ribbed panels, or jaws, with one jaw moving forward and back to crush raw material against the fixed jaw. Only material that has been crushed to a size equivalent to the opening at the bottom of the jaws falls through the bottom of the machine. This sizing is determined by the closed side setting of the jaw panels
A secondary crusher is one that takes crushed material out of a primary crusher and reduces the product further. An impactor or a cone crusher can be used as a secondary crusher. (6-8” feed size to ½” to 2” finished product)
Cone Crushers are typically used as secondary crushers. Cone Crushers feature a large circular chamber with a manganese cone or head inside. The stationary chamber is referred to as the concave and the moving cone inside is referred to as the head. The head moves in an elliptical motion and crushes material against the liner wall of the concave. When the material has been crushed to a size that allows it to escape the crushing chamber, it falls through the bottom
Crushers are heavy-duty equipment that perform a difficult job very efficiently. Wear parts on all three types of crushers – blow bars, jaw plates and “heads and concaves” in cones – will become worn over time and require replacement. The frequency of the replacement depends on the hardness of the material being run through the machine and the amount crushed
Fine materials also contribute to the wear of the crushing parts. Sand and fine pieces of material will slow production (because they don’t need further crushing) and they will increase wear. It’s important to remove as many fines as possible before proceeding with crushing. Also a large amount of “fines” or “wet and soggy” material will tend to build up in a crusher. This will significantly affect the crusher operation, create maintenance problems and in some cases make the crusher inoperable
Important note: To attain accurately sized product, a screening plant should be used after the material has been run through a crusher. Crushing plants can get within a range of sizing, but screening plants are designed to separate material to a specific size
The impact crushers we offer at our locations around Alabama are available through both Screen Machine Industries and IROCK. The pulverizing mechanism located within the chamber of each machine grinds down all types of materials and is especially effective in crushing hard rock materials
The two models we provide for Screen Machine Industries (5256T and 4043T) are specifically designed for concrete and asphalt surfaces. The Remote Crusher Relief System allows for both machines to continually clear out the chamber of debris without stopping mid-crush, which drastically reduces the amount of time covering a job site. The 4043TR model includes a radial arm that can be positioned off to the side to create an additional pile
IROCK allows us to offer wheeled, portable planted crushers (RDS models) as well as the Magnum crusher. The two portable crushers come standard with two decks each which allow for quicker production time. The Magnum crusher has one power source and a hopper that is able to be torn down and set-up in just a matter of minutes.
Impact crushers involve the use of impact rather than pressure to crush material. The material is fed into a cavity with openings on the bottom, end, or side to allow crushed material to exit the crusher. Our horizontal single shaft machines break material by impacting it with hammers (blow bars) that are fixed on the outer edge of a spinning rotor. The rotor has two (2) active “blow” bars and two (2) dummy bars. The active bars throw the material into the stationary “anvils” to create the impact crushing process and dummy bars are primarily for rotor balance. When wear occurs on the active bars and they can be rotated in the field to prolong bar life
Impact Crushers have a Reduction Ratio of approximately 15:1. An example of this ratio of reduction would be that a 30” input particle can be reduced to approximately a 2” discharge particle. Impact crushers tend to produce more “fines” that other types of crushers and are best suited to produce a “dense graded” type product or to provide feed material to a screening unit where the amount of fine product is important. Wear rates for an Impactor are increased when the feed material increase in abrasiveness
Normal Closed Side Setting – CSS (distance between the active bar and the lower anvil) normally run in the 1” range and can go up to 3”. The CSS is adjustable in the field. A top size material specification cannot be guaranteed from an impactor. Normally 60% to 70% of the discharge material will be smaller than the CSS. If a guaranteed top size is required for a specific application, the crusher can be paired with a Spyder screening unit or a “recirculating” impactor can be used
For your small one-off job sites, you can depend on us to provide you with jaw crushers. These crushers are able to cut through the hardest rocks, without being near a quarry or mining site. Screen Machine Industries and IROCK both offer a solution for construction needs
IROCK's WJC-2844 has the ability to grind down massive rocks to two-inch pieces. It also features a Cat engine of up to 350 horsepower, ensuring a quick and rigorous job done. The JXT jaw crusher from Screen Machine Industries is able to be operated from a remote control and is capable of being cleared out automatically, which means more work done with less stoppage time
All of our crushing equipment is proven to be effective and durable, because we know what it takes to see you succeed. We’ve been providing it for more than 60 years. An additional benefit to many of our pieces is the portable feature. IROCK and Screen Machine Industries both offer machines which are meant to be used all over your construction site. Instead of being built and having trucks bring in loads of material, the crusher itself can be moved around to reach all areas of your site
It's hard to find machinery to help you in your small construction sites, but Thompson Tractor is here to make the process of finding the right equipment easy. We offer a live chat on our website to get you the direct help and information you need, as well as consultations over the phone.
