Chinese construction equipment manufacturer XCMG has moved into a new product area with the launch of a mobile screening unit
Developed between the parent company, its German subsidiary Schwing and the Beijing University of Technology, the MSP1561 is claimed to have a 600 tonnes per hour capacity.
The crawler-mounted unit has a ground clearance of 343 mm, and is said to be able to climb 9° inclines. There is a hydraulic system to fold the conveyor belts in and out, cutting down on set-up time.
Power comes from a 97 kW Cummins engine and the overall weight of the machine is 38 tonnes. Transport dimensions are 18 m x 3.3 m x 3.5 m and it features a 6.1 m x 1.5 m screen box. A smaller 300 tonnes per hour unit is also available.
XCMG says the unit will be available on international markets shortly, and is already for sale in China.
