I might be able to suggest some things to help you crush rock more efficiently if you're interested (jaw width, how big a reduction in block size etc)

I may have to contact some of the manufacturers. I also may find that plenty of them exist in the southern Philippines and buy something on the used market. I know they are processing lots of rock, because I see truckload of it, mostly broken down to suitable size for making hollow blocks.
I hope to use my machine to break down used concrete as well. It seems that most people have no means of dealing with this stuff, so if I had a machine like this on the back of a tractor, it's likely that my future brother-in-law could make some money processing material for others. The majority of people don't have a vehicle suitable to haul heavy materials like stone in concrete.
