The new Astec Ranger crusher is designed for versatility, mobility and ease of transport

The tracked jaw crusher is said to suit customers wanting a crusher that can be used in comparatively small urban spaces.

Designed to be mobile and easy to transport, the machine can be made ready for use within a short period of its arrival onsite. Power comes from a Cat C4.4 diesel rated at 129kW, which meets the Tier 4 Final/Stage V emissions requirements, while the machine features a 3.83ms hopper.

The machine, showcased 29-31 March 2022 at the co-located World of Asphalt/AGG1 exhibitions in Nashville, Tennessee, is available in closed circuit and open circuit variants and can be used to feed into other plants if required.
