Terex Finlay used a recent four day dealer event in Ireland to introduce a new tracked cone crusher, the C-1550 with direct drive. The machine comes with a pre-screen system with a single deck 2.5 m (8 ft) x 1.5 m (5 ft) screen and 1.2 m (3.9 ft) belt that removes fines from the feed stream to improve cone capacity, product flexibility and reduced liner wear.
The pre-screen can produce a roadbase product from the side conveyor (mountable on either side of the machine. The crusher unit features variable speed, tramp relief and 'on the fly' closed side setting.
The 8 cubic metre (10.4 cubic yard) hopper has an automatic metal detection and purge system to protect the cone and reduce downtime by the removal of metal contaminants from the feed belt at the touch of a button.
