The Top Rock Crusher Brands

May. 20, 2020

At Mellott Company, we’ve been working with rock crushers for decades.

We’re proud to sell and service a range of industry-leading rock crushers. From jaw crushers to cone crushers and from stationary plants to mobile crushers, we offer a selection of models and parts that can suit any rock crushing need – so we have a wide-ranging familiarity with the industry’s leading brands.

You can view a full selection of the brands we offer – including new and used rock crushers here and parts – at this link.

If you’re looking for more information as you search for the ideal rock crusher, here are the brands you should review.

Metso

This company has been around for a while – since 1868, to be exact – although it wasn’t branded as Metso until a merger in 1999. Since then, Metso rock crushers have become an industry standard. 

As they put it on their website, Metso’s selection “covers different jaw crushers, gyratory crushers, cone crushers, and impact crushers – optimized for any size reduction need.”

Whether you need a primary rock crusher or a mobile plant, a Metso machine is a solid option to consider. 

Superior 

Superior has been branded since 1972 and they are well-known for their variety of equipment including conveyors, crushers, portable plants and more. With innovation as one of their leading core values, they are constantly evolving their equpiment to meet industry needs. 

Pegson

Pegson was well-known for dependable lines of jaw crushers and cone crushers. The company was headquartered in the UK, but American distributors have helped to facilitate the provision of Pegson machines on this side of the Atlantic for decades.

While the line of Pegson crushers has recently been rebranded to Powerscreen by parent company Terex, there are still Pegson jaw and cone crusher plants and parts available for resale.

Cedarapids

Cedarapids is also owned by Terex, but this brand is still on the market. Cedarapids crushers are designed specifically to be modular machines, allowing them to be flexible in application and making setup efficient. 

Available rock crushers include portable machines, jaw crushers, cone crushers, and even surge bins. These rock crushing machines offer excellent capabilities across a wide variety of applications.

Eagle Crusher  

Home to the number one portable crusher in the world, Eagle Crusher supports the industry with it's extensive catalog of equipment options. Eagle produces an extensive catalog of heavy-duty impact crushers, portable crushing and screening plants, jaw crushers, and conveyors.

Sandvik

Sandvik is a Swedish company specializing in mining, rock excavation, metal cutting, and materials technology.

They offer “mining jaw crushers, cone crushers, impact crushers, roll crushers and primary gyratory crushers for mining, quarrying and aggregate production,” and boast expertise in a broad range of applications – from greenfield mining projects to site expansions. 

Allis Chalmers

Allis Chalmers is another long-respected company that, today, has been dissolved into several different entities (none of which continue to provide rock crushers). However, as with Pegson rock crushers, there are still many Allis Chalmers rock crushers and parts available for resale.

Symons

It’s widely held that the Symons brothers designed the first spring cone crusher in the late 1940s. Today, Symons isn’t a brand as much as it is a type of crusher; the word is still used to denote machines that use this cone crusher technique. However, since it was the original brand, it merits an inclusion on this list. 

Metso, for example, has distributed Symons crushers all over the world (although some models are being upgraded or replaced as technology advances). 

Extec

Extec is another rock crushing brand that’s still widely available for resale. Extec was based in the UK with a network of global distributors and was known for its leading design and manufacturing of mobile crushing machines.

The company, though, was acquired by Sandvik in 2007 (along with Fintec), and has since been absorbed under that brand.
