Your complete guide to new and updated equipment and supplies in the aggregates industry.
Grasan says its KRH1515 pit- or road-portable, primary impact crushing plant features a Hazemag APPH impact crusher with a fully automatic, hydraulic cylinder system that provides increased crusher capacity (up to 600 tons per hour), smoother operation, and more uniform products. Crusher adjustments have been simplified so no tools are needed. Features include a 45-inch-high crusher inlet, a hydraulic inlet hood that is secured with wedge pins for easy opening and closing, and a grizzly bypass chute. The unit is available with diesel or electric power and includes a skid-on/skid-off hopper and six independent hydraulic support legs for easy set-up and tear-down without a crane.
Caterpillar’s new 992K high-lift wheel loader offers a full 24 inches more dump clearance than its standard-lift counterpart. The machine has a rated payload capacity of 21 tons. Hinge-pin height at full lift is 24 feet, 9 inches. When equipped with a 14-cubic-yard bucket, dump clearance under the teeth at full height and 45-degree discharge angle is 17 feet, 2 inches; with 15- and 16-cubic-yard buckets, dump clearances are 16 feet, 11 inches and 16 feet, 9 inches, respectively. The wheel loader features many improvements, including positive flow control hydraulics and additional sensors at the pumps for enhanced responsiveness.
Superior Industries says its new, extra-large-capacity RazerTail truck unloaders are available with a 72-inch-wide by 75-foot, 6-inch-long belt. The unit is engineered to handle material up to 8-inch minus, and features a deeper hopper and an 8-foot, 6-inch grate with a large 9-foot by 9-foot grate opening. The unit requires only 44-inch earthen ramps and features a hydraulically raised conveyor and optional self-cleaning ramps. The series also includes a low-profile model with a 72-inch belt and 22-inch earth ramp requirement, and a 48-inch belt model with a 32-inch earth ramp requirement (also available in an adjustable height discharge model).
Baldor Electric Co. says its steel-housed, heavy-duty, S-2000 bearing is designed with a high-capacity, double-row, spherical bearing element that provides misalignment tolerance. The bearing features a set-screw shaft mount with a cast-iron housing specifically designed for heavy-duty applications. The bearings are available in pillow block and flange configurations.
Inertia Machine Corp.’s new closed-circuit, 4048 FRAP mobile plant is engineered with a 48-inch by 12-foot vibrating grizzly feeder; a horizontal shaft impact crusher; a 6-foot by 18-foot, high-frequency, two-deck screen; and onboard conveyors that allow producers to process multiple products. Additional features include two adjustable aprons for high reduction ratios; reversible and interchangeable apron and housing liners; a large open-style ribbed rotor; a 7-cubic-yard, non-heaping hopper; a 42-inch delivery conveyor; a 24-inch second deck product conveyor; and a 48-inch fines conveyor.
Lake Erie Portable Screeners says its new portable screener can be towed virtually anywhere and set up in minutes. The Pitbull 2300 features a 47-horsepower, Tier 4-compliant diesel engine; two-tier shaker table with quick-change two-piece screens; hydraulic leveling system; and adjustable-height stacking conveyor. The unit offers a large 78-inch by 76-inch screen area with a deep loading apron. The table design includes two sizes of screens that can be changed out quickly.
JCB says its new line of skid-steer and compact track loaders are the first to be designed, engineered, and built in its North American headquarters in Savannah, Ga. The seven new skid steers — four wheeled and three tracked — are vertical lift, allowing for increased capacity and more reach at maximum lift height. The large-platform machines have rated operating capacities of 2,600 pounds and more. Additional features include a tilting cab with increased service access, multi-function joysticks, a hydraulic quick hitch, and a range of more than 30 attachments.
Case Construction Equipment’s new pallet forks are specially designed for use with its skid steers and compact track loaders. The new fork assemblies are available with either 48-inch or 42-inch tines. The heavy-duty tines are rated to 5,500 pounds and standard tines are rated to 4,000 pounds. The frame’s mounting angle assures proper forward tilt for loading and rollback for transporting goods.
JLG is re-launching its Toucan vertical mast lift as the T26E. It features a vertical telescopic mast with a jib that enables operators to reach above and around obstacles. With its enhanced direct electric drive, the company says the T26E boasts a longer battery life with more duty cycles for lower maintenance costs. The lift features a platform capacity of 500 pounds, with an overall platform width of 39 inches and height of 26 feet.
