McCloskey V80 Vertical Shaft Impactor has a host of features

The McCloskey V80 (VSI) has been designed to be one of the most efficient vertical shaft impactors on the market for producing high specification sealing aggregates, a high proportion of fines required for main roads/road-base, or manufactured sand. This heavy duty track mounted Vertical Shaft Impactor features a host of user friendly features, and reflects McCloskey’s commitment to reliable and durable equipment.

The V80 has a CEMCO Turbo T-80 VSI crusher, and a powerful 430 Hp C13 CAT engine. The sturdy I-beam plate fabricated chassis construction lends itself to the most heavy duty applications, along with its long-wearing Hardox hopper sides adding to its durability and strength.

The V80’s feed rate is controlled via control panel, remote control or fully automatic regulation via feedback from the VSI. The main conveyor has a large stockpile capacity (10 feet 8 inches) as a result of the standard extended 42-inch conveyor, and the large access between crusher discharge and the main conveyor feedboot. The V80 also features an integrated hopper with folding rear door.

As with all McCloskey equipment, ease of maintenance is a strong advantage for the V80. The Control Panel is user-friendly and has machine diagnostics that can drastically reduce downtime for maintenance. The open chassis design adds to the ease of maintaining the V80, as well as the hydraulic raise/lower lid on the crushing chamber.

With the advantage of McCloskey’s integrated and highly efficient hydraulics, better fuel economy is realized. The V80 boasts a fast setup time, due to its folding hoppers and conveyors. Easy to move from site to site, the V80 has transport dimensions of 52 feet 7 inches (16.02 m) long, 9 feet 6 inches wide (2.9 m) and 11 feet 2 inches (3.4 m) high weighing in at 85,980 lbs. (39,000 kgs).

With additional options like a roll-in bogie system, main conveyor variable speed control, Interlock systems, hopper extensions, and a metal detector to protect the VSI along with robust standard safety features, the V80 is high performance and productive.
