Contract Crushing

The variety of equipment in the crushing fleet provides a broad range of flexibility that enables us to cater for a wide range of crushing and screening requirements. The integration of the quarry fleet and general earthmoving plant allows access to all types of loaders, excavators, dozers, dump trucks, etc required for specific contract crushing projects and quarry operations.  As with Daracon’s earthmoving plant, our crushing plants are maintained to the highest standard by highly trained internal personnel or specialised contractors.

Daracon’s current crushing capacity is in excess of 3 million tonnes per annum with the current combination of screens and jaw, cone and impactor crushers. Crushing personnel have a very broad experience of crushing on site in quarries, civil projects, rail projects and mines, and have the safety culture and know how to operate within these environments.


Daracon own and operate 5 Aran pugmills and one Rapidmix machine. These are contracted for work on civil projects, to quarries around Australia, as well as operate within our own quarries.
