SMR 10/5/4 Horizontal Reversible Impact Crusher
The SMR 10/5/4 is the only crusher of its kind and caliber in North America, representing the number one name in horizontal impact crushers for sand and gravel production. Reduce dust emissions by 70% compared to cone crushers, while crushing down to any size 12 mm minus in perfect cubical shape to achieve the aggregate specifications required for specialty products like ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). This innovative and flexible crusher also reduces maintenance time and costs due to its extremely manageable design, and high quality materials.

The RCI series of mobile impact crushers are a top of the line all-rounder in the world of impact crushing. It is quick and easy to maintain and change wear-parts due to the hydraulic folding of its housing parts, while the hydraulic servo gap allows quick and simple adjustments to operating conditions.
Rubble Master HS7500 Mobile Tracked Scalper
The HS7500 is designed for the primary screening of natural rock, minerals and soils, as well as construction and demolition debris. Its heavy-duty design handles larger materials than standard screening plants, so you only crush what you need to crush, allowing you to produce your final products faster, easier, and at a lower cost.
Epiroc (formerly Atlas Copco) Medium and Heavy Breakers
The power to weight ratio and the efficiency of Epiroc's latest generation of medium and heavy hydraulic breakers has been significantly increased compared to their predecessors. Due to its lower weight and higher efficiency, less hydraulic input power is required from the carrier while maintaining maximum impact and performance.

Terrafirma Equipment Sales & Rentals will be holding Customer Appreciation Days, August 23–25 in Edmonton, Alberta.
The North American heavy equipment industry lost one of its pioneers, March 8th, when Erich Janke, owner of Terrafirma Equipment, passed away at the Edmonton Cross Cancer Institute, surrounded by friends and family, near his home and business headquarters.
Terrafirma Equipment Sales & Rentals was started by Erich Janke and Sid Mason in 1967, originally incorporated as Terrafirma Enterprises. Janke, born in Saskatchewan, eventually found himself in Calgary working as a heavy-duty field mechanic for Case and other equipment manufacturers. This is where he met Mason, a shop manager.
The mobile impact crushing plant, also known as the tracked impact crusher or recycling impactor, is recognizable mainly due to the fact that these crushers are mounted on a tracked undercarriage. Overall range of capacity for mobile impact crushers is roughly about 100 to 500 tons per hour. Today’s mobile impact crushers are especially ideal for smaller-scale recycling operations, for on-site recycling, and for tight-space urban and roadside applications. These units are transportable by trailer, simply driven off at the location of material that needs to be processed, and go to work very quickly. With their capability to produce accurately-sized, cubical-shaped end-product, mobile impact crushers work well as stand-alone plants, or they can add significant productivity to any operation, working in tandem with a jaw crusher or screen plant.
The 2016 Horse River Fire, which ravaged the Wood Buffalo Region of Northern Alberta and Saskatchewan, and which burned through the city of Fort McMurray, Alberta, destroyed close to 600,000 hectares by the time it was over. On May 1, 2016, the wildfire began southwest of Fort McMurray. On May 3 it swept through the community, destroying approximately 2,400 homes and businesses, and forced the largest wildfire evacuation in Albertan history.
Safe disposal of cement-based products and concrete is a serious concern. In an industry where material will set and timing is crucial, it is better to go to a site prepared with a little extra then to fall short of material. That is why there is usually residual mixed concrete at the end of each job – in addition to runoff from cleaning the equipment. That "little extra" adds up and can have a serious impact on the environment.
A significant amount of materials (approximately 78 percent) that come into the Lloydminster Sanitary Landfill are recycled, including household hazardous waste, lead paint, used oil, appliances, batteries and electronics, cardboard and blue-bag recyclables, as well as metal, soil, wood and C&D mixed concrete and asphalt.
A mobile impact crusher manufactured by SBM MineralProcessing out of Austria is currently being used on a trial basis to produce 2.5-inch aggregate at the world renowned Edmonton Waste Management Centre (EWMC) – adding to the city’s reputation as a leader in the recycling of C&D debris.
A mobile impact crusher manufactured in Europe has been churning out 2 ½-inch aggregate at the City of Edmonton’s Waste Management Centre – adding to the city’s reputation as a leader in its efforts to recycle construction and demolition (C&D) debris.
