New ST80T stacker from McCloskey takes the stage at AGG1/World of Asphalt
Maneuverability and versatility key attributes of new design
Built-in levelling indicators allow operators to position the stacker regardless of the ground evenness, with independent hydraulic jack legs to stabilize once in place. A level gauge allows operators to position the stacker for maximum production. The tires on the ST80T Radial have an aggressive tread pattern for better traction in rough terrain.
Once in place, a hydraulic raise/lower arm allows the switch from track to radial mode in seconds. The stackers feature a unique rear counterweight that counter balances the tracks and wheels, which are behind the stacker's centre of gravity. The design enables a much higher stockpile capacity, with the radial wheels set well back. The rear counterweight also firmly anchors the tail end during radial mode, delivering greater stability to the stacker while in operation.
The ST80T Radial's unique tool free transport design allows the equipment to move freely from site to site without needing to remove the wheels, delivering true portability for multi-site projects and operations.
The McCloskey ST80T Radial Stackers standard features include:
Tires that have aggressive-tread patterns for more traction in tough terrain
Hydraulic raise/lower arm allows the conveyor to switch from track to radial mode in seconds
Level gauge to allow for operation on uneven ground
Internal wheel drive motors allow radial travel
Patented counterweight design delivers enhanced stability and safety in operation.
Over the past twelve months McCloskey International has continued to add new dealers across all regions to represent the number of new products that are added regularly to the company's portfolio.
Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.
When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
