The Powerscreen Warrior 1400X bought by Sutton Services
Family-run business Sutton Services, specialising in demolition, site clearance, plant hire, recycling and steel fabrication, has installed its first Powerscreen Warrior 1400X. Launched at Hillhead 2012, the machine is processing C&D waste from a recycling site in Ipswich, eastern England. Sutton Services is a customer of Powerscreen distributor, Powerscreen Midlands.
“With the new screen media set up we have definitely seen a 25-30% reduction in the need for crushing. This drives down our operational costs while increasing our production ability,” says Glenn Sutton, director.
“Compared to the previous machine we were operating, we have seen a 10% reduction in set-up and take down time.
“We have recorded a vast improvement in the middle grade quality: this can send the mid-grade product straight to stockpile as these are correctly sized and the media now ensures that the fines are not piggy-backing on paving slabs or kerbing.”
Powerscreen says improved features of the Warrior 1400X include the feeder tray, which it says leads to minimal spillage around the machine so the excavator driver can keep loading without the need for stopping and clearing, and the collection raise feature, which provides easier access to the diesel tank compared to the standard Warrior 1400.
Other improved features include stockpile heights, where the stockpiling capacity on the fines and mid-size conveyors has increased by nearly 50% with the new chassis riser, and a new jack-up screen system that allows the site engineer to get access to the media and change it in half the time it would have taken on the Warrior 1400.
“The Warrior 1400X has been designed with economy in mind, with reduced engine running speed and enhanced hydraulics, and the 1400X offers a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 15% in comparison to its predecessor,” says Powerscreen.
It can be fitted with either a Tier 3/Stage 3A Caterpillar C4.4 ATAAC, four-cylinder diesel engine developing 90kW at 1,800rpm or a Tier 4i/Stage 3B Caterpillar C4.4, four-cylinder diesel engine developing 82kW at 1,800rpm.
