Terex EvoQuip crushing and screening equipment can handle anything you throw at it, says Tricon.


Tricon Mining Equipment has brought the full range of Terex EvoQuip crushing and screening equipment to the Australian market, with a machine suited to almost any crushing or screening application.

This, coupled with Telestack mobile bulk handlers, Anaconda Equipment International, Matec Italia, Simem and various other brands, has cemented Tricon as a premier player in the Australian crushing and screening industry, Tricon’s Rob Price says.

"The most exciting thing about EvoQuip," he says, "is that there is a machine to suit everyone.

"For a long time, customers had been forced to either buy a machine that was considerably larger than it needed to be, or one that was lacking in both build quality and throughput. Now we have a range of crushers, as small as 3,400kg, that can handle anything you throw at them."

Price says the Cobra series of impact crushers are also set to shake up the sector, offering class-leading throughput and reliability, with compactness and cost effectiveness.

"Every machine in the EvoQuip range has a focus not just on performance, but also useability, transportability and fuel economy," he says.

"The Cobra range is introducing a new breed of customer to impactors, which in the past have more often than not been looked at as being cost prohibitive.

"This has allowed people in smaller operations, or on tighter sites, a genuine option when it comes to processing material."

The EvoQuip range also covers screeners, from the compact Harrier 220, to the 2.7m x 1.2m (9-foot x 4-foot) Colt 800, with even larger machines coming later in 2018.

"As with the crushers, the broad spread of both incline and scalping screens mean Tricon is able to supply customers with a machine that perfectly suits the application," Price says.

"We now have screeners that you can tow on a small trailer, unload on site and have ready to screen in less than three minutes. This opens up amazing opportunities for customers running rental equipment, earthmoving equipment and even in the farming and agriculture sectors.

"To have brand-new, fully-warranted Terex crushers and screeners starting at under $100,000 really has changed the game."

The smallest jaw crusher in the range, the Bison 35, is suited to contractors who need a machine with maximum power but a tiny footprint. At less than 4.5m long, the rubber-tracked crusher has the ability to fit on almost any job site without worrying about damaging concrete, asphalt or even grassed areas, Price says.

The machine can crush at up to 30tph, while sipping as little as four litres of diesel an hour thanks to its 28.5hp Isuzu engine.

At the other end of the scale is the new Bison 280 jaw crusher, which uses Terex’s 900mm x 600mm crushing chamber, and is at home in both quarry and recycling applications.

"With hydraulic jaw adjustment, two-stage grizzly feeder and CAT C7.1 engine all standard, the Bison 280 allows customers to get into a brand-new Terex jaw crusher at a price that has previously been reserved for used equipment," he says.
