“I would recommend ELRUS because I have had nothing but good service and the walk through was really great. Curt and Brent walked us through the new equipment, the set up, the break in, the first liner change – they have done an awesome job.”

Mike M, Kilgore Companies, Salt Lake City, UT Nov/18

“ELRUS is a great company. They stand behind their equipment, their work, and they are great at troubleshooting over the phone. If they don’t have an answer, they will find it and call you back, or give you the right contact who can help you. Answers come back ASAP. I have been in the industry for over 20 years and I have always dealt with ELRUS.”

Rob G, Waterford Crushing & Screening, Waterford, ON Nov/18

“I have recommended ELRUS. They have a good machine shop, they respond quickly, their rates are good. They have good people who know how to do the work. They rebuilt a jaw for us last summer. They actually made the parts that we couldn’t buy. It was an old jaw from the ’60’s. Their service and tech department people are some of the best.”

Gary G, Aecon Transportation West Ltd, Calgary, AB Nov/18

“I would recommend ELRUS for their service. Out of the guys who come out, I would recommend Brent specifically. Cody is a bit too new yet, but he seems to be coming a long. I can tell he is going to be good. The new guy in Denver is doing a good job too. I really like him.”

Harold M, Granite Construction, Watsonville, CA Nov/18

“I would recommend ELRUS because of their professionalism. They have smart and knowledgeable people, they know about crushing and about the equipment. They can get a plant up and running for us.

They have shown us how to calibrate the equipment with the computer and what settings to use.”

Will M, Hawaiian Cement, Aiea, HI Nov/18

“I recommend ELRUS because they know the cones really well, they know the parts and all the specs. We can change liners, and then every second or third time, we have them go in deep and look at the whole cone. They can pull it apart and make sure everything is okay.”

Doug F, Doug Folden Trucking Ltd, Melfort, SK Nov/18

Carl R, ACE Enterprises Ltd, Yellowknife, NT Aug/18

Jim S, Waterford Sand & Gravel, Waterford, ON Aug/18

“I would recommend ELRUS because of their knowledge and expertise in the industry. They will do their best to provide good customer service and help a guy out.

Vince F, Lafarge Canada, Fonthill, ON Aug/18

“The main reason I would recommend ELRUS is their customer service. Everybody in that branch is definitely helpful in multiple ways. Also I recommend the product they sell and how helpful they are.

My boss gave me the go ahead the next day, and it was already there. That was fantastic!”

Adolf B, Fast Brothers (1978) Ltd, Blumenort, MB Aug/18

“I would recommend ELRUS mainly just because of the fact that they are willing to jump through the hoops to get us what we need. When I call, they call back within 5-10 minutes and they will tell us if they have the part or not, or how long it will take, and then we figure out how to get it. Their customer service is really good.”

Kirk M, Knife River Corp., Portland, OR Jun/18

“ELRUS has always come through for us. Anytime I say I am looking for something, they seem to know their products and I have never had any trouble getting what I need. Some places you call for parts and they don’t know what you mean, but ELRUS staff are very knowledgeable.”

Lee, C & B Stirling Enterprises, Grandview, MB Jun/17

“I recommend ELRUS all the time. The quality of the equipment, the service and the people are wonderful, and we have had a long term relationship with the company. They have a lot of knowledge, and Rolly, the Founder of ELRUS was the one who revolutionized the component type of equipment. Equipment used to be built to have everything added on to one chassis. Now you  can mix and match pieces of equipment and they perform better. We were operating 4 screen decks, making 7 different products. You couldn’t do that in the past where everything was mounted on one chassis. It’s all mobile, where the cone is a separate item from the screening plant.”

Terry M, Lawrence Meier Trucking Ltd, Dunmore, AB May/17

“I recommend ELRUS mostly because of the service, and the fact that ELRUS is a Canadian company, and the equipment is manufactured in Canada. They are definitely not the cheapest. We pay a premium, but at the same time, we know that if anything goes wrong, we can get service and parts. ELRUS can provide the quickest service by far.”

Ed K, Kode Contracting Ltd, Prince George, BC May/17

“ELRUS is very professional in their dealings. Good product and good technicians that understand the equipment and who are able to support the customer completely.”

Bevin, Iron Ore Company of Canada, Labrador City, NL May/17

Chris D, Sil Industrial Minerals Inc, Edmonton, AB May/17

“I would recommend ELRUS because of the parts we can get sourced pretty quick. They have a good stockpile of parts in Saskatoon. If we have a part failure, they can get a new one for us very quickly. Jared, Spencer and Rick are all really good guys. Jared comes up and makes sure that we are all stocked up. He’ll look at what we need and bring it to our attention so we are not going to have down time.”

Leon J, Silver Standard Resources Inc, Regina, SK May/17

“I would recommend ELRUS because they build good products, they are right here so available, and it is a Canadian company.”

John Z, Otter Creek Resources Ltd, Sechelt, BC May/17

Brent M, Canada Building Materials, St. Mary’s, ON Apr/17

“ELRUS has good service. You buy something and they don’t just forget about you. They do the servicing and they follow up. We have had a long term relationship over 20 years with ELRUS.”

Wayne R, Canada Building Materials, St. Mary’s, ON Apr/17

Mario T, Alvin Caldwell Sand and Gravel, New Liskeard, ON Apr/17

Derrick G, Zenith Paving Ltd, Brandon, MB Apr/17

“I would recommend ELRUS because they are always on time, they are good at diagnosing the problem correctly, are easy to get a hold of and do good work.”

Jim B, Penn-Co Construction Canada Ltd, Blumenort, MB Apr/17

“ELRUS did custom build some equipment for us and they have trained us on the equipment. They check up on us and inquire how the equipment is working, so good follow up. Ron is really good to deal with, as well as another guy who has come out to see us. They are more than willing to help us out.”

David L, Carillion Canada Inc, Edmonton, AB Apr/17

William B, Budget Environmental Disposal, Hamilton, ON Mar/17

John C, Flesherton Concrete, Flesherton, ON Mar/17

“I would definitely recommend ELRUS based on the customer experience, the guys going out of their way, and even Shelley in the office. Whenever I call to set something up, she is always polite. I recommend ELRUS equipment because of the quality of the product they provide and the fact that they stand behind it.”

Joe P, Aggregate Processing Services, Kitchener, ON Mar/17

“ELRUS has a really good machine shop and they have service techs who are well trained and who really know what they are doing. I’ve been using ELRUS for five or more years. ELRUS is reasonably priced and their estimates are very close. If it is off at all, they will call. We get no surprises with ELRUS. Their service techs are really good.”

Gary G, Aecon Transportation West Ltd, Calgary, AB Mar/17

“I’ll recommend ELRUS to anyone I talk to if the subject of service comes up because they do have very knowledgeable staff and speedy service. They also have competitive prices which we have to keep on track with more and more every year.”

Frank S, City of Calgary, AB Mar/17

“I would recommend ELRUS because of the service I have gotten is beyond anyone else, and for parts, they are always easy to get a hold of. I deal with different people for other suppliers but Darren has always been good for us. Other suppliers can take days to get back to me, but ELRUS always responds quickly.”

Tom B, Lafarge Canada Inc, Fort McMurray, AB Mar/17

“ELRUS is above and beyond as far as quality goes. Their guys are not trying to upsell you on what would make them money. They just sell you what you need. Whenever I call, they are super happy to talk to me. Other guys I call just want to get me off the phone. The ELRUS guys are there for future business. The relationship is what matters. The overall service is so good.”

Tyrell H, Jake-Jay Construction Ltd, Revelstoke, BC Mar/17

“I’d recommend ELRUS because they always get us what we need. We are using the neoprene screens we get from ELRUS and they work well for us – seem to last a long time.”

Phil, Valley Gravel Sales Ltd, Abbotsford, BC Feb/17

“I would recommend ELRUS because of their experience, and their willingness to share their knowledge. What I appreciate from ELRUS is that if they’ve got a machine 500 miles north, they are willing to share their experience so that you can move ahead faster. That is good service, and service is what the business is about.”

John, Unity Sand and Gravel Ltd, La Crête, AB Feb/17

Donald, NCL Contractors LTD, Deer Lake, NL Jan/17

Sam G, Greenwood Aggregate Company, Amaranth, ON Jan/17

“I would recommend ELRUS because I have never had any issues. Any time I get a hold of John, he gives great service. I know that if I call him with a weird question, if he doesn’t have the answer, he will find it and get back to me within minutes, a half hour maybe. He is very knowledgeable about the industry and what I need.”

Karl B, Lafarge-Brockville, Cambridge, ON Jan/17

Ryan D, Walker Aggregates Inc, Severn Bridge, ON Dec/16

Jordan F, McLeod Valley Sand & Gravel, Edson, AB Dec/16

“I would recommend ELRUS because they give top notch service. I’ve been dealing with ELRUS for about 7-10 years now so I know.”

Gordon S, Clifford Sheaves Construction, Grand Bay West, NL Dec/16

“I would recommend ELRUS because of their professionalism.”

Glenn S, 644735 Ontario Ltd (Snow Bros), Erin, ON Nov/16

“ELRUS’ equipment is superior, and they stand behind their equipment. They have the parts and the service available when you need it. I just bought a screen deck from another supplier, and they just dropped it off on the doorstep and went on their way. ELRUS would never do that. ELRUS would help with setup, and make sure it was working properly.”

Demetrius T, Geransky Brothers Construction, Martensville, SK Nov/16

“I do recommend ELRUS all the time because of the long-standing relationship and good service.”

Lloyd G, Butler Bros Supplies Ltd, Duncan, BC Nov/16

“I would recommend ELRUS because of their knowledge and good service. When they come out, they come prepared.”

Ed S, Diamond Ready Mix Concrete Ltd, Steinbach, MB Nov/16

“Because ELRUS is just awesome to deal with, I recommend them. I met Rollie and heard about ELRUS. A few weeks later, I saw him and told him I had bought from his competitor. He wasn’t happy about that but I told him his ELRUS guys didn’t follow up so they lost the sale. He invited me down to have a personal tour of his factory. I needed two conveyors, and I took two conveyors home with me, that was $147,000 worth of equipment with only $2000 down. There are not many guys who would have let a young business guy like me do that. But Rollie was “old school.” I’ve bought ELRUS conveyors ever since then.”

Bill, H, Holt Transport, Irma, AB Nov/16

Lee W, Joe Kerr Limited, Wingham, ON Nov/16

“ELRUS is really easy to deal with. Whatever my problem is, they find a solution and get me back on track right away. I deal with other suppliers, and we talk on the phone, and they help too. But ELRUS is different. They come out to see us at the site, and they know us. That doesn’t happen with a lot of suppliers.”

Zach R, R.F. Klein & Sons Ltd, Prince George, BC Oct/16

“Because of the service quality and the vast number of parts they have, I will recommend ELRUS. There are lots of crusher supply places in Edmonton, but none of them have the selection that ELRUS has. ELRUS is my first contact for parts.”

Richard G, Tli Cho Landtran Transport Ltd, Yellowknife, NT Oct/16

“I recommend ELRUS because they are helpful, they are always coming up here and visiting us, they keep us informed and explore new ideas. They know all the equipment we have so they know what we need. They show their faces here more than any other company.”

John M, Orca Sand & Gravel Ltd, Port McNeill, BC Oct/16

“Because of their knowledge base, I recommend ELRUS. They are easy to get along with, and they have so much stock for my crusher on hand. The availability of parts and their Service Techs are very good. I can call them anytime and they can get me up and running, even over the phone.”

Steven F, Paul Flasha Contracting, Whitecourt, AB Oct/16

Dan P, Calgary Aggregate Recycling, Calgary, AB Oct/16

Chris S, Gillis Quarries Ltd, Springfield, MB Sep/16

“ELRUS is quick to respond and quick to be on site. Garrett has made a huge difference there. We had some issues with Gino, but it has been like a 180 for us with Garrett.”

TJ, Pitt River Quarries, Pitt Meadows, BC Sep/16

“ELRUS has a nice group of guys, and they know what they are doing. I don’t buy everything from them. I check the prices on things and sometimes I buy from their competition.”

Adolf B, Fast Brothers (1978) Ltd, Blumenort, MB Sep/16

“ELRUS’ service goes a long way in this industry. The whole group there, the guys in Parts and Service are outstanding. They are quick to address issues and we have a really great partnership with them.”

Martin B, Dufferin Aggregates, division of Holcim, Cambridge, ON Sep/16

“The customer service at ELRUS is fantastic. They go the extra mile, they try whatever they can to find the best solution, and their pricing is good. I buy a large quantity of parts and ELRUS does have the best price.”

Chris D, Sil Industrial Minerals Inc, Edmonton, AB Sep/16

“ELRUS has a lot of knowledgeable people, like Greg F in Calgary. We’ve sent guys to ELRUS because we’ve told them about the solutions that ELRUS finds. There were 9 crushing plants shut down in BC, and ELRUS has a solution for every problem in less than a week. They are more than willing to provide engineering solutions. We’ve never been billed for those engineering solutions either. We deal with mines and the BC government changes the regulations on equipment and sends out inspectors. ELRUS knows that in order to sell into BC, they have to comply with the rules. They have been amazing at helping us find solutions. We’ve been dealing with ELRUS for over 20 years. We knew Roland, the Founder; he was a great friend.”

Russ Y, Pine River Holdings Ltd, Chetwynd, BC Sep/16

“I have dealt with ELRUS for years and they’ve always been fair with us, and they build great equipment.”

Paul S, West Central Contracting Ltd, Hinton, AB Aug/16

“ELRUS has good equipment.”

Brian, Sparks Sand and Gravel Ltd, Virden, MB Aug/16

“ELRUS has good equipment, their service and parts guys are good in Calgary and SK. They will get something fast to you, even if you need a part, and they don’t have it on the shelf, they will take something apart in the yard, and they’ll get it for you.”

Cameron F, Potzus Ltd, Yorkton, SK Aug/16

“I get the right parts, they’re timely, and the ELRUS staff are friendly. They are very professional.”

Wayne, Canada Building Materials, North Dumfries, ON Aug/16

“I have already referred ELRUS. We are happy with the product. It does what they said it would do and what we want it to do.”

Matt M, Buffalo Plains Cattle Company, Moose Jaw, SK Jul/16

“ELRUS left a good taste in our mouth. The machine does what they said it would do, and it arrived on time.”

“Because they give timely service, I would recommend ELRUS, and they do what they say they’re going to do. They’re highly knowledgeable too.”

Leon S, Westlake Paving & Agg. Ltd, Kelowna, BC Jul/16

Stephan F, Tollestrup Construction (2005), Lethbridge, AB Jul/16

“I already have recommended ELRUS because ELRUS is the best! The people are phenomenal. Darren, Thor and Kevin are great to work with and James even delivers parts to me. The service is just great! I won’t even consider anyone else.”

Derrick G, Zenith Paving Ltd, Brandon, MB Jul/16

“I heard by rumor that ELRUS is good. I think they are one of the best suppliers on the market.”

Trent S, Silver Eagle Excavation, Biggar, SK Jun/16

“Oh absolutely, ELRUS is right up at the top in this industry. We haven’t had low quality stuff. We have looked at the competition, and there are some parts that are cheaper, but when you factor in that ELRUS delivers, and other guys will charge you for freight, then the deal isn’t so great. Plus nowadays, you might be getting a cheap Chinese knock-off part. So we look at the value.”

Dale F, BBE Hydro Constructors LP, MB Jun/16

“I would recommend ELRUS because they are on time and prompt to get back to us. They are knowledgeable and they stick around to make sure everything works for us. They are always really helpful. Spenser has been really great.”

Troy K, L & G Crushing, Raymore, SK Jun/16

“We have a crusher we bought from ELRUS in 1992 and it’s still working. That says a lot, and we get good service.”

Ryan B, Ken Beatty Construction, Erickson, MB Jun/16

“Basically I find ELRUS to be pretty straight forward. I trust them, they are a good bunch of guys and they will go out of their way to say hello.”

Ted P, Tedlon Services Ltd, Thompson, MB Jun/16

“We would recommend ELRUS because they provide good service, and they have good parts. Our ELRUS equipment has lasted a long time and this is a rough business. We demand a lot of the equipment.”

Debbie B, Bowman Construction, International Falls, MN Jun/16

“ELRUS knows what they are talking about. And I would say that 48 times out of 50, they have the parts I need. My son Matt works in Service for ELRUS so I have a bit of an ‘in’.”

Gary G, Aecon Transportation West Ltd, Medicine Hat, AB Jun/16

“I strongly recommend ELRUS because as an organization, they are very professional, are a well rounded company and they have a solid base of knowledge with good people.”

Rick K, Kode Contracting Ltd, Prince George, BC May/16

“It depends on who we are talking about. I wouldn’t recommend ELRUS to our competition because I don’t want to give them a competitive advantage. But I would recommend them to others.”

Lyle W, Venture Construction Inc, Martensville, SK May/16

“I would definitely recommend ELRUS because of their level of service. Once we had the process setup it continues to work and is a steady level of service. It is a pleasure doing business with ELRUS.”

Lakeram R, Rosebel Gold Mines N.V., Suriname, SA May/16

“We are happy with the service ELRUS provides. Their staff are really good. They have the information we need. If they don’t have the answer initially, they will get back to us with it.”

Cam C, Dale Croswell Construction Co, Thorhild AB May/16

“George with ELRUS stayed until 5:30 to make sure everything was good and that our guys understood. He had to travel back to Calgary, a 3 hour trip but he wasn’t in any rush to leave. Whenever someone gives you good service, you want to pass it on. I want ELRUS to get more work and giving them a referral is sort of like thanking them.”

George S, Fish Creek Excavating Ltd, Calgary, AB May/16

“I refer ELRUS regularly. I have a good relationship with the guys, I have been dealing with them for a lot of years. Their pricing is in line and they always have gotten what we need. They can source it fast. There are not a lot of other suppliers who can do that. They are close by and they have the stock we need. When people ask, I tell them to go to ELRUS.”

Mike B, Tri-City Materials, Petersburg, ON May/16

“If we have questions, the ELRUS guys have a ton of knowledge and that includes their Site/Shop Service, their Parts and their Sales staff They are good at sharing the information and if they don’t have an answer, they will find out. If I call at 3:00 pm and they don’t know, then by 9:00 am the next day, they will have an answer.”

Craig C, Mixcor Aggregates Inc, Leduc, AB May/16

“I sure would recommend ELRUS. So far we are using the feeder and it works well. From day one, ELRUS was on board. They have been easy to approach, easy to talk to and they showed us how to use the equipment. They seemed happy to help us. Just the way they interacted with us – their presentation was pretty professional.”

Clarence M, Community Government of Wekweeti, NT Apr/16

“ELRUS has a wide knowledge base and they are up there in the industry. ELRUS is leading and pushing the industry forward. They are keeping up with technology and advances. They are always looking for the next step at increasing production, managing costs down and maintaining quality.”

Aaron S, Selkirk Paving, Crescent Valley, BC Apr/16

“ELRUS knows our equipment. We don’t always have parts number but we can describe the part to them and they can help us figure it out. They work with us, they have the knowledge and are flexible.”

Carl W, Brockman Enterprises, Humboldt, SK Apr/16

“I would recommend ELRUS because of their customer service and the team atmosphere that they have. For example, I could reach the Parts Shipping guy in Calgary by error and he would answer my question or find the information for me, as opposed to hanging up on me after saying,“that is not my job.” The whole ELRUS organization works that way.”

Shane G, Buffalo Gravel Corp, Grande Prairie, AB Apr/16

“ELRUS is dependable and reliable. The equipment always breaks down on the weekend but you can call them on Saturday morning at 7:00. They will help and if they cannot coach you through it, they will come out and fix the problem. ELRUS staff are very obliging.”

Morley L, Swayze Concrete Ltd, Weyburn, SK Apr/16

“Oh definitely, I would recommend them. I think that ELRUS equipment is by far the best. Everything about ELRUS is better: their equipment, their service and also their product support.”

Lee W, Joe Kerr Limited, Wingham, ON Mar/16

“ELRUS is very professional, very knowledgeable and they have been prepared. They have looked after us, they have gotten our equipment up and running.”

Jim B, Penn-Co Construction Canada Ltd, Blumenort, MB Mar/16

“ELRUS provides good training for our guys. We took the Cone to the Leduc Shop and I brought some of my guys. We got hands-on training and that is very beneficial. He told us what to look for. There were a lot of steps we had been missing so we got a refresh on what to look for and what to do.”

Colin O, Burnco Rock Products Ltd, Edmonton, AB Mar/16

“We haven’t had an issues with ELRUS. Whenever we order parts they arrive on the promise date and the right parts arrive. We are also happy with the quality of parts. We have been using them for years and never had any trouble. The quality is good.”

Smeet P, Atlas Polar Company Limited, Toronto, ON Mar/16

“I have personal experience with a lot of different Parts Suppliers. ELRUS is one of the most pleasant experiences that we have when we need to purchase parts. It is the people and the culture. The people in Leduc are awesome. We have always told Shane that before he purchases equipment, he needs to consider the Parts and Service reputation of the Supplier. ELRUS is on top of their game.”

Teri B, Finishing Touch Aggregates Ltd, New Norway, AB Mar/16

“I would recommend ELRUS because if Spenser cannot find the problem he will phone someone who can. They have always figured out what the problem is and how to solve it. Who else would we call? Spenser has access to a bunch of guys in Calgary who have many years experience.”

Kent F, ASL Paving Ltd, Saskatoon, SK Mar/16

“I like the Sandvik crushers and have had good luck with them in the past. I have also had good luck with ELRUS. They have been there for us and have looked after issues when they have come up. I have also run Sandvik crushers on the hardest rock in Ontario and they outperform other crushers. I would have no issue taking a Sandvik crusher to any job.”

Dave R, Priestly Demolition, King City, ON Feb/16

“I recommend ELRUS to my bosses because they are seriously committed to the aggregates business. Theirs’ is not a small operation.”

Frank S, City of Calgary, Feb/16

“ELRUS knows what they are doing. They are the crushing guys and I don’t think there is anyone else.”

Randy D, Dyck Construction, Winnipegosis, MB Feb/16

“I already have recommended ELRUS. They will go the extra mile for us. They are not a business hours Branch. When you are dealing with a guy like James, of course you will send people his way. Now that I have a good relationship with ELRUS in Winnipeg I haven’t had near as many problems getting parts. I can text James and have the parts the next day.”

Bernt Gilbertson Enterprises, Richard Landing, ON Feb/16

“You go to ELRUS and they treat you like family. You walk into their building and they drop everything and come and talk. That makes a person feel better. There are not too many companies like that. There is always a joke or two. It is very good because there is always a smile and a laugh. That makes for good business.”

Joe N, Joe Neniska & Sons Ltd, Kenora, ON Feb/16

“I just recommended ELRUS a few weeks ago and told the guy to call Dawson. It is hard to find a supplier in the middle of the road with good pricing, good service and that will provide some help. I deal with a lot of vendors, so I see a lot. ELRUS will listen and in the end, you don’t feel that you got screwed.”

Rick O, Jack Cewe Ltd, Coquitlam, BC Feb/16

“ELRUS is really easy to deal with. They generally inventory the parts we need and they can deliver the next day. Parts availability is good for us. I can even send them a drawing and they get back to me promptly. I find that ELRUS is generally prompt and quick.”

John M, Orca Sand & Gravel, Port McNeill, BC Feb/16

“Right before we did the commissioning on the Cone, Thor offered to bring some pails of grease along. It was charged on the account but Thor didn’t need it, so he called and said that I would be getting a credit on one pail because it wasn’t used. As a result, I trust these guys immensely.”

Ron F, Sigfusson Northern, Lundar, MB Feb/16

“I would recommend ELRUS because of the working relationship with all of their staff. I have always had a good working relationship with them. It says something about the company itself and it says something about the culture they have built and maintained.”

Lloyd G, Butler Bros Supplies LTD, Duncan, BC Jan/16

“In fact I was telling others (other communities) at meetings in Yellowknife that they should go buy from ELRUS. They provided the equipment on time.”

Judal D, Community Government of Gameti, Gameti, NT Jan/16

“We are a smaller outfit and we will need help. We are hoping to get assistance from ELRUS when we need help. It seems they could be a good resource for us.”

Doug S, Liberty Trucking Ltd, Duchess, AB Jan/16

“Thor with ELRUS is a very knowledgeable person and can do the work of two guys. We had another company come and our cost with them was higher. It took more men to do the same thing that Thor could do by himself.”

B Derksen, Derksen Trucking Ltd, Altona, MB Jan/16

“ELRUS covers such a broad area in their product line. You can get almost any part from them, even on a unit that is 25 years old. After many years, ELRUS will still take care of their customers. I find that if I need parts, they will always know a way or find a way to help.”

Darryl W, Blue Star Construction Ltd, Brandon, MB Jan/16

“On the parts end, it is the service that ELRUS provides. We are now working out of Saskatoon as well but we strictly deal with James on all of it. He is our one point of contact and that works well.”

Allan S, Russell Redi Mix Concrete, Russell, MB Jan/16

“ELRUS has quality parts and because they are so close, I don’t have to inventory many parts. They usually have the stock that I need.”

R Martin, Martin Bros Crushing Ltd, Listowel, ON Jan/16

2015 ↑ Back to top

“I always do. I think I might be one of ELRUS’ best Salesmen in Ontario because I believe in their equipment. We have 4 of their 4800 cones, a 6000 cone and an older S3800 cone. I have been in this industry for a long time and their cones do good work. They also have great screens – easy to setup and maintain.”

Blaine B, Aggregate Processing Services, Kitchener, ON Dec/15

“I believe that they make superior equipment. I have had other competitors’ equipment in the past and I like ELRUS equipment because it is built better than the competitor’s.”

R McIntosh, McIntosh Crushing & Aggregate, Montmartre, SK Dec/15

“I would recommend ELRUS because I really do like their gear. The ELRUS staff are also good people – they have the parts available as well. Another reason is that I can call Scotty in Calgary and pick his brain. He always has time and if he doesn’t know, he will find out. Scotty gets back me. Not many companies have the level of customer service that ELRUS does.”

Lenny G, Lafarge Canada Inc, Ft. McMurray, AB Nov/15

“ELRUS sells good product and they support it with good service. They have answers to our questions and if they don’t, they will find the answer. They get us the parts we need in a hurry. ELRUS does what they are supposed to do. That is why we went back to them and Sandvik cones. ELRUS has service and knowledge to support the equipment they sell.”

Ross A, Buffalo Gravel Corp, Grande Prairie, AB Nov/15

“I sure would recommend ELRUS. My perception is the new equipment is all pretty much the same these days. What it really boils down to is the service that is supplied. Service from your supplier sells equipment. What ELRUS is doing right now, by meeting with us and trying to get the issue resolved, is what I will remember. If ELRUS services what they sell, that is what matters.”

Denis O, Oldcastle Materials,
Grand Junction, CO Sep/15

“I would recommend ELRUS for two reasons: Their product line and quality are good and they have higher standards in the equipment they build.”

“We have had a very good relationship with ELRUS over the years. They are a Canadian company and it is a good time to be spending Canadian dollars.”

Nick O, Nova Construction Ltd,
Antigonish, NS Aug/15

“Because of the relationship and trust I have with ELRUS, I would recommend them. They have parts and service and know what they are doing. If you have to take the equipment apart, they will get in and help you. They don’t mind getting their hands dirty and showing you how it works and how to fix it right.”

Lyle W, Venture Construction Inc,
Martensville, SK July/15

“I would recommend ELRUS because they have flexible conveyors. I can use them as a junk conveyor, a transfer conveyor or a stacking conveyor. The wheels are back far enough that you can get a decent sized pile. They are also clean and I like them better than the competitor’s conveyors.”

Garland S, Birds Hill Gravel & Stone Ltd, MB July/15

Mayerthorpe AB May/15

ELRUS also has a real strong customer support network built up. They have the infrastructure and the professional people to support it. I would say that no one comes close to ELRUS’ support for parts and service. I also think that ELRUS has a real presence in the industry. People with other manufacturers’ equipment hire ELRUS to support and service it. It is almost funny that ELRUS will do that, but it really shows their willingness to help. It is quite commendable.”
