NASHVILLE, Tenn.­­ ––  Kleemann is bringing its MOBIREX MR 100i NEO mobile impact crusher to the North American market.

The company, which is part of the Wirtgen Group of companies, made the announcement at the 2024 World of Asphalt and AGG1 Aggregate Academy & Expo in Nashville, Tennessee.

The NEO is the baby brother of the MR 110i EVO2. It has a crusher inlet of 40 inches by 30 inches, and a feed capacity of up to 276 US t/hr.

Kleemann notes because of its low transport weight, the NEO is a flexible machine that can operate in tight spaces on work sites and easily move to new locations. As well, the NEO can be used for different recycling applications, such as the processing of concrete, rubble and asphalt, to the processing of soft to medium-hard natural stone.


“(The NEO) comes in two drives: a D-drive or an E-drive. D-drive is the diesel drive, the E-drive is the electric drive,” explains Matt Graves, with Wirtgen Group.

“Because the diesel engine drives generators that drive all the systems, we can also typically put most of our crushers up to line power. So, almost everything in our crushing lineup can be set up where diesel generator gets shut off, we hook the generator to line power and then you’re off and running completely CO2 free.”

The NEO is currently available in Europe but will soon be for sale in North America.

“It is going to be launched in the US in May. So, we’re going to be bringing in our first ones in May, we’re going to do our dealer reveal in June and then right after that, it’s going to be available for everyone for sale. What we’re finding is there is a niche market for impact crusher for asphalt recycling on site.”

Graves notes that much of Wirtgen’s equipment is developed in consultation with those working in the field.

“We go directly to the contractors as they’re working, bring our engineers in from Germany, bring our R&D people in from Germany, and have that conversation about how we can help you become more effective, more efficient, more sustainable. Smart, safe and sustainable. You’re hearing that a lot lately. That is something that has been core to our philosophy as a company for a long time.”
