KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens launch compact line of crushing and screening equipment
New Ranger line to be shown at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020 along with latest hybrid horizontal shaft impactor
KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens have announced that CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 will mark the introduction of a variety of new types of crushers and impactor plants as well as featuring other pre-existing popular models.
Astec Mobile Screens will be introducing its new Ranger line, comprised of compact, track-mounted units. The mobile line will include a variety of jaw crushers, cone crushers, impact crushers, incline screens and trommels to serve a variety of markets including building and construction, landscaping, quarry operations and plant and tool hire. Their ease-of-use, ease-of-transport, versatility and flexibility make them ideal for smaller operations that require powerful equipment with a limited footprint.
The Ranger line will be represented by a network of dealers that have the capacity to support the equipment and sustain a strong rental program for its customers.
KPI has announced that it will be introducing its first hybrid horizontal shaft impactor plant equipped with a pre-screen during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, the FT4250CC.
The new two-deck pre-screen minimizes the amount of undersized material that passes through the chamber, reducing wear costs and increasing the amount of final product by up to thirty percent. The hybrid power option also allows producers to operate using either line power or diesel fuel for added flexibility.
KPI will also feature its 2742 Pioneer jaw crusher at the event, which utilizes unique shaft and bearing assembly designs for easy troubleshooting, reduced maintenance and a twenty percent greater capacity than competitive models.
Additionally, JCI is exhibiting its latest addition to the Kodiak® Plus cone crusher line, the K350+. This new model features increases in drive train, stroke, horsepower, weight, head diameter and hold-down force, resulting in up to ten percent more capacity compared to other similar-sized cones.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
