In todays world of rising energy, labor and construction costs the Compressed Earth Block Machine provides a superior alternative for the environmentally considerate builder in all economic arenas.

We manufacture an earth construction system that can enable you to economically produce high-quality building components using widely available raw material to build superior, quality buildings.

The advantages of compressed or rammed earth blocks are many. Since the blocks are machine made they are uniform in size and, with some care, uniform in density. It is common practice to drystack (mortarless) 12" or thicker walls immediately upon ejection from the machine since the blocks are smooth and sharp cornered. This saves on mortar costs as well as handling and damage costs as the blocks are only handled once.


We offer technical support and onsite training as well as the finest adobe (compressed earth) block machine available. Most adobe press machines can be custom made to your specific requirements including: block sizes, power plants, regional parts replacement, dirt type, and additive needs.

We also offer Mechanic and builder tool packages as well as complete parts and accessories packages.

 

 UPDATE

Check out our All New Block Maker Series machines!

We have had many requests for an inexpensive machine that will produce a small block or brick that can be handled one handed. We now are offering both the brick maker and block maker machines at extremely inexpensive entry level pricing!

The Brick Maker Series produces a 4"(10cm) x 8"(20cm) x 6"(15cm) block. This machine is available in manual as well as fully automatic.

(We are excited about the new 4 x 8 Brickmaker. The bricks are very easy to handle and the machine works beautifully!)

The Block Maker Series produces a 4"(10cm) x 12"(30cm) x 8"(15cm) block, also available in manual as well as fully automatic.
