compact/mini concrete crushers

I have found that there are some of these being produced. Some of the brands I have seen on while browsing on the Internet are red rihno, komblet?, genie. Anyway has anyone had any experience working with one, know what they cost to rent/ buy. Not really looking to buy one, however it does seem like a very interesting idea
thanks

Just looking at it there is to many moving parts. Just stockpile and wait for a crushing deal to spring up. Materials is basically a 10 year thought process.

Don't see how it's worth while what job it'd be useful in really.

You can get a crusher bucket for a 250 sized excavator and produce twice as fast as a Red Rhino size crusher, but they aren't cheap.
We just stock pile the concrete at farms and bring in our little Terex Pegson crusher, that way we are guaranteed coffee and donuts for at least a week courtesy of the crusher owner.

The one supply house had a contractor day and they were showing off the 'Hog Crusher'. It was neat but crazy expensive, 'in the teens' moneywise.

They have a video of it on there and another small crusher.
