EvoQuip launches BISON 280 compact crusher
Bison to be on display at EvoQuip's first World of Concrete
EvoQuip offers a comprehensive portfolio of products to address the needs of the compact crushing and screening market. The company is now launching the Bison 280 Jaw Crusher. Whether operating in Construction & Demolition, Asphalt Recycling, Quarrying or Contract Crushing, the EvoQuip Bison 280 is designed to enhance profitability.
According to EvoQuip, the Bison 280 has been working in a tough Granite site at Peter O'Donnell & Sons Quarry in Ireland. Peter O'Donnell, Managing Director, said "The productivity and performance of the EvoQuip Bison 280 really has surpassed our expectations. While the machine itself is very compact it is definitely not a lightweight machine as it consistently produced a quality product at a high throughput and low cost per tonne in our Quarry".
Matt Dickson, EvoQuip, Product Line Director added, "The Bison 280 jaw crusher is a machine that offers versatility with supreme durability while also providing our customers with excellent productivity and fuel efficiency. The quick set up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for all applications."
Compact Size, ease of use and versatility
The compact footprint makes the EvoQuip Bison 280 easy to transport and also makes it an ideal machine for working in urban areas. The rapid set up time and intuitive control system on the EvoQuip Bison 280 enables the operator to be crushing minutes after unloading the machine from the lorry. The operator can also adjust the crusher setting easily without the need for any tools using the user friendly hydraulic jaw adjustment system. Additionally, the EvoQuip Bison 280 offers the customer exceptional flexibility as it can be used on a multitude of natural stone applications including granite, river gravel and basalt. The Bison 280 can also be used on various recycling applications including construction and demolition waste, recycled concrete and reclaimed railway sleepers.
Performance, optimal material flow and serviceability
The Bison 280 uses a fuel efficient and high performing direct drive system to power the jaw crusher. This along with the simple to operate jaw adjustment allows the operator to optimize the material throughput and reduction whilst ensuring the best fuel efficiency. There are a number of key design features in the BISON 280 that ensure an optimal material flow throughout the crushing process. The vibrating feeder automatically regulates the flow of material into the crusher based on the engine load and this ensures that an optimal choke feed is kept in the jaw. The impressive under crusher clearance along with the excellent tunneling then ensures an unrestricted flow of material even in the harshest of recycling applications. Serviceability has been integral throughout the design and development of the Bison 280. With excellent access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refueling points, it ensures maintenance is easy for the operator.
EvoQuip machines can come directly to the site to crush and screen waste from demolition projects. When customers are not farming they can use EvoQuip equipment to demolish old farm buildings, process material for lanes, driveways or drainage projects. Certain models in the range can even be transported on an agricultural trailer and can overcome access issues on narrow lanes, country roads and remote access sites.
World of Concrete 2018
EvoQuip also recently announced they will exhibit at World of Concrete 2018, in Las Vegas from 23 January - 26 January in the Las Vegas Convention Centre. Exhibiting for the first time at the show, EvoQuip will be at stand C5172 with their Bison 120 jaw crusher model on display.
The Bison 120 has been specifically designed for operators for whom versatility, maneuverability and transportability are of key importance. It is small enough to fit inside a container for transport but strong enough to withstand the toughest of applications. The Bison 120 features a ‘680mm x 400mm' single toggle Jaw Crusher that can be adjusted hydraulically using the remote control which comes as standard with the machine. The Jaw is driven hydraulically allowing the customer the ability to reverse the Crusher to clear a blockage as well as being able to run in reverse permanently for sticky applications such as asphalt. The ability to adjust the jaw setting and operate the plant fully from the remote control allows for a fast and simple set up for the customer. With its intuitive operation, quick set-up times, compact size and ease of transport the Bison 120 the ideal solution for all small to medium sized operators.
