- This page is about the Crusher added by GregTech 6. For other uses, see .
The Crusher is powered by kinetic energy or KU provided by an engine.
The essential use of the Crusher is as the first part of an ore processing chain by crushing ore blocks into two Crushed Ores. It can also crush Stone or Stone Bricks into Cobblestone, Cobblestone into Gravel, Brick blocks into Bricks, Blocks of Quartz into Nether Quartz, and Sandstone into Sand. If it is provided with a Stone Generator Module it will generate Cobblestone using only KU.
Unlike in previous versions, the Crusher cannot recycle machines and parts into metal dusts; the Shredder is used for that instead. It also cannot crush gravel into sand or crush ore-bearing gravel or sand; the Sifter is used for that instead.
