The first McCloskey R155 screen to be delivered to HPE Africa
McCloskey International has appointed High Power Equipment (HPE) Africa as the exclusive distributor of its full range of equipment in southern Africa, including jaw, cone and impact (horizontal and vertical) crushers; trommel and vibrating screeners; stacking conveyors, and washing systems.
“Through our branch and distributor network, the local market now has improved accessibility to the McCloskey range, which is supported by the HPE Africa team,” says Alex Ackron, managing director of HPE Africa.
“McCloskey equipment is known for easy operation, high efficiency, low maintenance requirements and extended service life, even in tough conditions.
“The machines are used across several industries, including aggregates, mining, quarrying, waste management and recycling, construction and demolition, as well as infrastructure projects, road building and landscaping.”
The first McCloskey stock units, the J45 jaw crusher and the R155 screen, have recently been delivered at HPE Africa’s head offices in Gauteng, South Africa.

The R155 is said to be a robust screening machine that can cope with difficult applications by minimising material pre-handling and providing clean end-products. Typical applications include site reclamation, construction and demolition waste. The screen is also renowned for working with difficult materials such as heavy rock, sticky clay and fines, as well as boulder clay.
The McCloskey J45 jaw crusher, with a 114.3cm x 68.6cm has level and load sensors as standard.
Other features of the J45 include a heavy-duty bofar grizzly design and pan feeder chutes with steeper angles, designed to reduce material sticking.
A high-capacity hopper with 6m³ capacity is mounted over a vibrating feeder, and the main conveyor is fitted with heavy-duty skirting, positioned close to ground level, for ease of access and maintenance.
HPE Africa is also the existing distributor of the Hyundai range of earthmoving equipment, as well as the Soosan hydraulic hammers, in southern Africa, and Ackron believes the McCloskey range will complement the existing line of equipment in the HPE Africa stable.
