We get this question a lot here at Peninsula Crusher Works and it's not a simple one to answer. There are a lot of factors that should be considered before scrapping a piece of equipment. What is the cost of rebuilding vs. the cost of new equipment? How long will the rebuild keep us operating? What is the difference in production between the rebuilt equipment vs. new? And most importantly; do we have a trustworthy source for the rebuild? This is where working with a partner like Peninsula Crusher Works can pay dividends! We take the time to learn each customer's unique applications for their equipment which in turn allows us to better weigh in on capital equipment projects. Most of our customer's see a 50% or more cost saving on rebuilt machines and components vs. buying new. Allowing them to allocate capital funding to other projects. The project pictured below is a great example of a machine that would be written off by most as irreparable. We were able to resurrect this machine for about a 1/10th of the cost of replacing the component. So before you send your broken down equipment to the scrap yard make sure to give Peninsula Crusher Works a call!
