Tracked 516RT combines larger capacities, more mobility, and highly efficient materials processing across industries

New Model Added to McCloskey International’s 516 Trommel Line-up

McCloskey, out of Peterborough, Ontario, a worldwide leader in crushing and screening equipment, has introduced the 516RT, a highly mobile, high performance tracked trommel ideal for processing a number of materials across applications. Enhancements made based on feedback have led the company to include even more customer-focused features to the newest member of its 516 product line.

With a weight of 22,500 kgs, the 516RT boasts a heavy duty chassis with four independent stabilizer jack legs, integrated hydraulic folding conveyors and a radial conveyor with 180° swing that delivers 13’6” (4.13m) stockpile height. Powered by a CAT C4.4 100 Hp engine, the 516RT features an over-sized hydraulic tank and hydraulic oil cooler for maximum cooling capacity and high efficiency throughout the hydraulic system.

The 516RT has a number of features that McCloskey says place it ahead of competitors in the category. A significantly longer and wider direct fee 5.25m3 (7 yd3) hopper provides a large loading area, while a 6” wider feed opening allows for the free flow of material and high volume capacity. The 516RT’s optimal fully enclosed fines flashing minimizes potential material spillage while the rubber belting extending along the length of the machine reduces blockages, even when working with wet and sticky materials.

With the 5’ x 16’ screening surface, material such as topsoil, compost, sand and gravel, and wood products spend more time in the drum for better results. The three screen sections allow for flexibility in sizing to maximize productivity, and for heavy duty applications, a remote control 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 ease of drum change.  

As with all McCloskey equipment, the 516RT has an accessible engine service bay for ease of maintenance and service, saving time and reducing costs. With additional options like a radio remote control for tracks, a variety of drum and screen combinations, and a hydraulic tipping grid, the 516RT is a highly productive, and highly mobile trommel.
