... and crushing rocks. Rocks for paving and cement are usually mined from rock strata. Large rocks are produced when the strata is fractured by dynamite blasting; the big chunks are loaded into off-road trucks. An excavator dropping the rocks in the truck body produces gouging abrasion. A 500 kg (1,102 lbs.) rock...
