Machines that mimic nature Pulverizer that totally looks like Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Our client calls it the "Pulverizer" and use it to crush, break up and remove the steel bars from large pieces of concrete. They then sell the steel to recyclers and crush the remaining concrete pieces into road base and other usefull building materials.

So what kinds of teeth do you need to chew concrete all day ?
Molybdenum alloy steel.
