When using Crushing and Screening Equipment for Sale or Hire, you’ll generally have two choices: Mobile Crushing Equipment or Stationary Equipment. Mobile Crushing Plants are currently the most advanced equipment available on the market, having in recent years achieved a healthy balance between convenience and output. Below, we will look at the differences between Mobile Crushing and Screening Equipment and Stationary Equipment.

Mobile Crushing Plants

Mobile Crushers are like Stationary Crushers but with several key differences. One of their main structural design differences is their mobility, allowing them to transport crusher material (ore, stone, rock) out of the mining area, also via Portable Track Conveyors. A Mobile Crusher is a completely self-contained unit. Mobile Crushers can implement several types of Crushers including:

  • Mobile Jaw Crushers
  • Mobile Gyratory Crushers
  • Mobile Hammer Mills
  • Mobile Impact Crushers
  • Mobile Roll Crushers

Operating Costs

Mobile Crushing Plants eliminate the need for transportation and so will save you a lot of money in that regard. Traditional/Stationary Crushers will require a high cost to be transported to the site. Also, unlike Stationary Crushers, Mobile Crushing Plants can crush material directly on-site, with the ability to either transport the end-product by itself or deliver it to a truck due to its long frame. This will save a significant amount in processing costs, particularly for mining applications.


Mobile Crushing Plants are like small-to-medium-sized Crushing Plants. Although its output may not reach as high a maximum quantity as large Crushing Plants, it makes up for it with its high-efficiency, multi-functionality and high-quality end-product at a significantly lower cost. Part of the key to Mobile Crushing Plants’ efficiency is their ability to be configured and handled by a much smaller amount of people compared to Stationary Crushers as well as set-up time. Mobile Crushing Plants are made of 3 stages or 3 different Crushing Machines, each with specific features. Today, Mobile Crushing plants achieve a strong structure and effective design.


One of the key benefits of Mobile Crushing Plants is their versatility and flexible configuration. With their ability to be self-transported, they can be conveniently placed and configured as close to the material as possible. Stationary Crushing Plants are less flexible and more reliant on the topography of the site.  Once installed, Mobile Crushing plants have numerous operations that can be performed including pre-screening, fine screening and crushing. With a powerful diesel engine, Mobile Crushers can handle even the most challenging tasks that Stationary Crushers do. Due to their mobility, Mobile Crushers are also able to be easily replaced such as during the transportation of the final product.

In Conclusion

There are benefits of choosing Mobile Crushers for Sale or Rent, or Stationary Crushers, depending on which option works best for you. When making the choice of which type of Mining Equipment you will use, there is a lot to consider including your budget, location, material being crushed, the number of crew you are using as well as the amount of time you will spend at the site. Stationary Crushers can promise a high output of material but are limited in versatility. Mobile Crushers are extremely versatile and have reached the point of providing an output that rivals that of Stationary Crushers.
