Jaw Crushers by Pennsylvania Crusher Brand

Jaw Crushers reduce unusually hard, tough and/or abrasive rock, as well as ferroalloys and glass, which cause excessive wear to other types of crushers.


Many types of crushers use rotating hammers and other crushing elements to reduce materials by impact, shear or attrition. Jaw Crushers, however, crush by compression of the material between two opposing surfaces — the jaws.

Pennsylvania Crusher brand Jaw Crushers are available in both Double Toggle and Overhead Eccentric models. To read more about each type of crusher, download the product sheets below:
