Barford Equipment to bring track mounted screeners into US market for 2018
Barford Equipment, the UK based manufacturer of mobile screeners, trailers, screen boxes, as well as wheeled and tracked conveyors, is poised to enter the US market in 2018 with the launch of the SR124 and the S104, two new track mounted screeners.
Barford Equipment is using Yoder & Frey auctioneers to prelude both of the new mobile screeners to the US market at its upcoming 2018 Spring Sale in Kissimmee, Florida (between February 13-17) - the perfect event to develop brand awareness plus meet prospective distributor representatives and buyers. Both models will then each be sold at the auction, without reserve, to the highest bidders.
"The world's construction machinery, aggregate, quarry and mining markets will all be focusing on the Kissimmee auction so this is a great opportunity for us to meet potential distributors and probable buyers and gauge the appeal of both our new machines," explained Stephen Murphy, Distribution Manager for the Barford product range. "Barford is a well known brand in the UK and across Europe, having built an enviable reputation and possessing a long and illustrious history, but it is currently relatively unknown in the US market; but that's about to change. Yoder & Frey is well known for organising prestigious equipment auctions that draw the attention of the types of buyers we are looking for and are the ideal match for us entering this sector."
The two robust and refined Barford models being launched comprise: the SR124 (pictured) a tracked three way split screener, with a 12 x 4 screen box that fits into a 40ft HC container; and the S104 a tracked three way split screener with a 10 x 4 screen box that again fits into a 40ft HC container.
"We are delighted to include both these new Barford screener models at our upcoming Kissimmee auction and are confident that the US market will embrace these excellent ‘value for money' machines," stated Peter Clark, founder and CEO of Yoder & Frey. "Our auctions always attract significant interest and we are working closely with consignors to ensure the upcoming sale is a success on all counts."
The SR124 is built around a Caterpillar power unit, with the engine on the S104 being produced by JCB. The S104 is also available with a Deutz engine.
In addition to the two tracked screeners being launched, Barford Equipment also manufacturers a range of straight and radial tracked and wheeled stockpile conveyors. Other products include: the D16, a 16 ton, twin axle dump trailer; The R15 / 15 ton twin axle rock trailer; And the L22, a 19 ton, 22ft long chassis twin axle low loader. There is also a range of screen boxes, with the US40 with its 3.75m2 / 40ft2 total screening area being the most popular. Other models provide 1.8M2 /20ft2 or a 6.5m2/70ft2 screening areas.
