New “J” Series Crusher added to McCloskey Line

Machine diagnostics can drastically reduce maintenance downtime

McCloskey International has introduced a new addition to its "J" series of crushers, with some unique features that make the J44 Jaw Crusher a standout in its category.

The J44 main conveyor has a large stockpile capacity (12’ – 11") as a result of the standard extended 42" conveyor, and the large gap between crusher discharge and the main conveyor feedboot. The folding Hardox hopper is mounted over the vibrating feeder with integral pre-screen. Further, the feeder rate can be regulated manually or automatically by the load sensing jaw.

The J44 has an I-beam plate fabricated chassis construction, and features a true 44" x 26" (1118 mm x 650 mm) single toggle jaw with reversible hydrostatic drive and jaw plates as well as fully hydraulic closed size setting adjust capability.

Ease of maintenance is a strong advantage for the J44. The Control Panel is user-friendly and has machine diagnostics that can drastically reduce downtime for maintenance. Adding to the ease of maintaining a J44, the conveyor is easily removable as it raises and lowers hydraulically and the CAT C9 ACERT engine has all round access.

With the advantage of the efficiency of McCloskey’s integrated hydraulics, better fuel economy is realized and the J44 can be on-site and operational in a matter of minutes with its folding hoppers and conveyers. Easy to move from site to site, the J44 has transport dimensions of 11’-1.8" (3.4 m) high and 47’ - 5.5" (14.465 m) long, and weighs in at 88,184 lbs. (40,000 kgs).

With additional options like a water pump and dust suppression system, hopper extensions, an overband magnet or Crusher Deflector Plate, as well as robust standard safety features, the J44 is high performance and productive.

Vermeer SC40TX Stump Cutter Features Exclusive Ride-On Platform

Vermeer has introduced the SC40TX stump cutter, featuring a first-of-its-kind ride-on platform providing speed, maneuverability and operator comfort. The SC40TX is the first stump cutter on the market with a stand-on platform to drive the machine. Compared with traditional self-propelled stump cutters, operators will be able to maneuver the machine from stump to stump faster.

A counter-rotating track undercarriage also enhances maneuverability by making it easier to reposition when cutting a stump which greatly benefits straight-line cutting dimensions. The tracks also offer good floatation and the ability to operate in less-than-ideal ground conditions.

Cat pavers feature new screed heating system, oscillating bogies and high visibility touchscreen

An integrated generator, the power behind a new screed heating system on the AP1000F and AP1055F asphalt pavers, is directly connected to the paver engine. The screed can reach operating temperature in approximately 15 minutes, compared with the previous 30 to 45 minutes. Also, the F-Series pavers run at about 1,300 rpm, reducing sound levels which can lead to earlier start times in residential areas.

The 167 kw (225-hp) Cat  C7.1 ACERT engine meets EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. On some F-Series models, a Tier 3, 186 kW (249-hp) engine is available Eco-mode is standard and when used with automatic engine speed control, it manages engine rpm to optimize fuel economy, reduce sound levels and keep the paver running smoothly. Touchscreen high-visibility, colour displays provide increased flexibility for operating and adjusting the machine. New features are controlled through the touchscreen while the most frequently used functions are still controlled by switches.

Asphalt Drum Mixers’ single-drum counterflow plant

The EX Series of asphalt plants from Asphalt Drum Mixers, Inc. (ADM) use single-drum counter-flow technology. They offer high efficiency and a compact design for contractors with low- to medium-production needs, and produce 100 to 425 tons per hour at a very low cost per ton. The company says that these plants have the longest aggregate drying and mixing times in the industry, and are capable of processing high percentages of RAP. The EX Series is available in portable or stationary versions.

Using counter-flow technology, the EX Series has separate drying and mixing zones to achieve the maximum level of heat transfer and fuel efficiency. Furthermore, this system virtually eliminates unsafe hydrocarbon emissions. To make the plants even more environmentally friendly, ADM designed the system to reintroduce residual gases back to the drum’s combustion zone.

Keeping rising costs in check

An asphalt producer found himself in a situation faced by too many asphalt manufacturers. “The cost of aggregate continued going up,” said Francois Guilbeault who, with his brother, owns Asphalte Drummond Inc., based in Drummondville, Quebec. “It was having an impact on our business.”

In theory, some of the cost could be passed to customers, though that is not a business approach Asphalte Drummond likes to take. Customers don’t appreciate rising prices, and Guilbeault doesn’t want them searching for lower-cost alternatives. Yet surrendering profit margin is not a healthy business approach, either. “We had to find a way to control the costs, while not hurting our business,” Guilbeault said. He believes others in the industry face similar challenges.
