A Crusher is a device for reducing the size of material by the action of allping a force to it to "Crush" it. These machines come in a variety of sizes and types. The most common use is for producing small sized stone for use in construction, but a growing market is the breaking up of old concrete and brick to allow its reuse as hardcore or after screening and mixing with some new material as concrete or masonry blocks.
