New McCloskey 516RT trommel based on feedback
McCloskey International has updated its 516 trommel line based on customer feedback, releasing the highly mobile, high performance 516RT tracked model for processing a wide range of materials.
That feedback has led to the development of a number of features "that place it ahead of competitors in the category", McCloskey says.
Among these features are a significantly longer and wider direct-feed 5.25-cubic-metre hopper that provides a large loading area, and a 15cm-wider feed opening that allows for the free flow of material and high volume capacity.
"The 516RT’s optimal fully enclosed fines flashing minimises potential material spillage while the rubber belting extending along the length of the machine reduces blockages, even when working with wet and sticky materials," the company says.
The 22,500kg trommel has a 152cm x 4.9m screening surface which means "material such as topsoil, compost, sand and gravel, and wood products spend more time in the drum for better results", it adds.
The three screen sections allow for flexibility in sizing and, for heavy duty applications, a remote-controlled hydraulic tipping grizzly can be added to scalp off large material. Ground adjustable brushes on the 516RT keep the screen clean and rotate away from the drum for easier drum changes — which take 20 minutes.
Helping to keep the drum clean are non-stick polyurethane side walls, which prevents the build-up of sticky material.
The 516RT has a heavy duty chassis with four independent stabilizer jack legs, integrated hydraulic folding conveyors and a radial conveyor with 180-degree swing that delivers a 4.13m stockpile height. Powered by a CAT C4.4 100-horsepower (75kW) engine, the 516RT also features an over-sized hydraulic tank and hydraulic oil cooler for better cooling and higher efficiency in the hydraulic system.
Optional equipment includes a radio remote control for tracks, a variety of drum and screen combinations and a hydraulic tipping grid.
