A new 300-ton-per-hour tracked mobile cone crusher from Kleemann, a Wirtgen company, is now available in North America. The Mobicone MCO 11 features a 44-inch-diameter cone crusher as its core for high-performance secondary or tertiary crushing. Its 15.7-cubic-yard feed hopper is designed for direct feed from a primary crusher or wheel loader, and can accept feed of up to 10 inches by 10 inches in size. A variable-speed drive controls material flow from hopper to crusher via a solid rubber belt 40 inches wide. It’s fed by a vibratory feeder with special wear sheets that helps prolong feed belt life. The feed conveyor can be retracted for servicing the cone or for transport. The crusher is driven by a 270-horsepower motor and is mounted on rubber supports to reduce vibration. A probe control ensures the crusher is choke-fed. An extra-wide discharge conveyor belt moves product to screen or stockpile, and can be elevated to increase stocking capacity. The unit is 55 feet, 9 inches in length; 11 feet, 2 inches in width; 105,800 pounds in weight; and feed height is 13 feet, 11 inches.
