EvoQuip's new Cobra 230 impact crusher can be seen in action near Birmingham, UK, in July
EvoQuip has launched a new addition to its impact crushing range, the Cobra 230 impact crusher. The Terex brand offers a comprehensive portfolio of products for the compact crushing and screening markets, including construction and demolition; asphalt recycling, and quarrying or contract crushing.
“The Cobra 230 impact crusher is a machine that provides class-leading productivity, unmatched versatility and excellent fuel efficiency,” says Matt Dickson, EvoQuip, product line director.
“The quick set-up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for all applications.”
The Cobra 230 has been on test with J & V Construction in Ireland. Where Gerd McCann, J & V construction director, says: “The EvoQuip Cobra 230 has managed to surpass our expectations, handling a mix of difficult rock and heavy-duty recycled concrete with ease, and turning it into products we have been able to reuse on our construction sites.”
EvoQuip says that the rapid set-up time and intuitive control system on the Cobra 230 enables the operator to be crushing minutes after unloading the machine from the truck. The operator can also adjust the crusher setting easily without the need for any tools using the user-friendly hydraulic assist that is standard on the machine.
There are a key design features in the Cobra 230 that ensure an optimal material flow through the crushing process.
As material moves from the feeder through the impactor onto the product belt each section becomes wider ensuring an unrestricted flow.
“The excellent under crusher clearance, the short distance from the crusher discharge to the magnet and the ability to lower the product conveyor while running make the Cobra 230 the ideal machine in all applications,” says EvoQuip.
The Cobra 230 uses a fuel efficient and high-performing direct drive system to power the impact crusher, and this together with the two independent hydraulic-controlled aprons allows the operator to optimise the material throughput and reduction while ensuring the best fuel efficiency.
EvoQuip says that serviceability has been integral throughout the design and development of the Cobra 230, and with ground level access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refuelling points, it ensures easy maintenance for the operator
“The compact footprint makes the Cobra 230 easy to transport and also makes it an ideal machine for working in urban areas,” says EvoQuip.
“EvoQuip machines can come directly to site to crush and screen the waste from demolition projects. “When customers are not farming they can use EvoQuip equipment to demolish old farm buildings, process material for lanes, driveways or drainage projects. Certain models in the range can even be transported on an agricultural trailer and can overcome access issues on narrow lanes, country roads and remote access sites.”
The Cobra 230 will be working at the Blue Open Day in Solihull, near Birmingham, central England, on 12-13 July. To attend, visit the website.
