Frontline Machinery hosted their annual Demo Days & Open House event today at the company's headquarters in Chilliwack B.C.. About 200 customers, industry partners, OEMs and staff were in attendance to see the latest innovations from Frontline equipment partners, including global crusher/screener manufacturer Keestrack, Optical Belt Scale manufacturer Sensortechnik and screen/shredder and mobile conveyor manufacturer EDGE Innovate. Also in attendance was Langley-based Shearforce Equipment which demonstrated their latest hydraulic pulverizer attachment.

Keestrack, the Belgium-based crushing and screening plant manufacturer had their latest H6 model hybrid cone crusher on display, a K6 scalping screen, and an R6e electric Impact crusher crushing recycled concrete with rebar.

Frontline's removable genset is a first in Canada and can be used to power multiple machines, using diesel or electric-power, and can either be machine-mounted or moved easily around sites and between sites.

A highlight for Keestrack's equipment display was a newly available removable genset, shown on the H6 cone crusher, which can power multiple machines, and which can be machine-mounted or moved around any site easily. According to Darryl Todd, Frontline president, this gen set is a first-of-its kind and he expects it to be a game changer in the crushing and screening industry, which he says is moving more and more towards electric and hybrid electric power options.

"Every year we try and bring something new to this event," said Todd. "This year we have the Keestrack H6 cone crusher with the removable gen set. That's a first in Canada," he said, adding that EDGE's automated radial stacker with 270-degree stockpiling capability is also an industry first.

"Im really pleased with this year's event. It's grown over the last year, and over the year before, he said, adding that he sees great value in events like this one. "For those that take the time to travel, network with other industry professionals, share best practices, share ideas, talk to the factory guys, talk the dealers, there's a lot that can be learned. It can ultimately make those who are constantly trying to improve become more competitive, win more projects, and make more money. Bottom line, this is what it's all about."

Next for Frontline Machinery will be the National Heavy Equipment show, March 28-29 in Mississauga, Ontario.
