KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens has introduced the new-generation track-mounted GT125 Vanguard Jaw Crusher, which offers increased energy savings, reduced cost of operation and improved reliability.

The GT125 is an ideal mobile crusher for aggregate production, mining, recycling and concrete applications. Its large, dynamically-balanced, heavy-duty flywheels produce up to 33 percent more inertia than competitive models, leading to a reduced cost per ton over the lifetime of the machine. The crusher’s large, 1 ¼-inch stroke processes more material than competitive models, leading to increased production and reduced operating costs, according to Stephen Whyte, product manager for KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens.

The updated GT125 features a 27- x 42-inch Vanguard Jaw Crusher with hydraulic drive and reverse capabilities, and fully hydraulic CSS adjustment. The crusher’s fixed hopper design allows for a rapid setup time, while a new grizzly feeder cassette allows for the replacement of the grizzly section without removing hopper sides. The unit comes with easily-replaceable grizzly bar and finger deck options for enhanced application flexibility and versatility.

An ultra-sonic level system provides continuous feed to the crusher, reducing surges and lowering wear costs. A new 7-inch Digsy 7LE Controller offers increased RAM and memory. Updated bearing housings now use NGLI 02 grease, making regular maintenance easier and more convenient for the producer.

A simple manual folding head section on the discharge conveyor reduces the footprint of the machine, reducing costs when shipping overseas, Whyte said.

“Our new GT125 model offers the same industry-leading performance while enhancing the design for improved ease-of-use for the producer,” Whyte said. “Stationary and portable producers alike will benefit from its exceptional mobility and productivity.”
