    While looking for crushers, wayyy overpriced to begin with, I started noticing that some "sticker" badged brands look exactly the same as the Chinese stickered ones. The housings on either the faces or the corners have all the same curves, gussets, mounting area and whatever else...but some say Terex, to KPI, Symons so on and so forth named brand ones are better/different, than the way cheaper Chinese stickered ones. What's the deal here?? Are they actually the same ones just different stickers and paint scheme? Who actually makes the jaws and replacement parts for them? They all look the same. I really hope somebody can give me some actual factual info. A side example of such....looking for hot water pressure washers, found Mi-T-M, found out they actually make John Deere's washer...different (gold enlaced green paint) paint and $1000 more on price. It's JD, so it's gotta be better than the actual company that makes it for them...right?!?! :D

    Really? Almost a month and nobody knows where their replacement parts or actual jaw crusher comes from. Nobody has any insight or experiences? Where else can I look for info?

    from what ive seen within OEMs (Terex) they all seem to use each others crushers from time to time rather than design their own from scratch (Cost and time savings), For example the Terex XH500 used to be known as the Pegson 1412 (Terex purchased powerscreen who had previously purchased pegson who had just been merged with brown lenox) which was basically a Hazemag crusher placed on their own chassis under lisence. Cedarapids Cobratrak impactor was basically a Pegson 428 crusher on their own chassis, which used to be the Brown lenox 42x28 and before that was SBM's impactor. The Terex XA750 is a Jacques jaw crusher fitted to Terex's chassis. Same goes for Finlay now that they also do crushers, Basically buying existing crushers and fitting them to a plant. Hard to know in each case who originally designed each crusher but the plants are assembled within the OEM
    replacement parts can come from anywhere dependant on who has a foundry/capacity to do them, Surprisingly there aren't many left, South Africa during my time seemed to be the quality ones that OEM's tend to use, But I bet they even use china now due to cost (They have a lesser quality reputation however)
