Blue to showcase hat-trick of machines at CQMS

BLUE Machinery Ireland, part of Blue Group, will have a trio of Terex EvoQuip machines on display at this year’s CQMS, the largest construction and quarrying machinery show in Ireland.

The business, which is run and partly owned by brothers Ronan and Liam Brophy, has a product range that includes brands such as Doppstadt, BlueMAC and Terex Fuchs. Blue Ireland was appointed the official distributor of EvoQuip crushing and screening equipment in Ireland. The firm described the range as a “comprehensive portfolio of products to address the needs of the compact crushing and screening markets”.

The three machines Blue Ireland will have on display are the new Cobra 230 impact crusher, the Bison 280 jaw crusher and the Colt 600 screen.

The Cobra 230 is a compact impactor crusher incorporating a 2.3m3 hopper and two stage ‘Tine’ grizzly feeder as standard. It has a 860mm x 610mm crusher inlet and comes with hydraulic adjust and hydraulic overload protection as standard. Blue said the Cobra 230 can process up to 250tph of material and is powered by a Tier 4 202kW / 275Hp CAT engine.

The Bison 280 mobile jaw crusher has a 3.5m3 hopper capacity and a two stage grizzly feeder as standard. Blue said potential output of this machine is 200tph, with the machine offering hydraulic jaw adjustment.

Finally, the Colt 600 is a compact mobile screen which can fit into and be transported via a standard sized shipping container. The machine incorporates a 2.34m x 1.17m double deck screen and can be fitted with a range of different media screens.

Liam Brophy, Blue Ireland director, said, “Our experience as a distributor of Fuchs and Doppstadt equipment means that we can count on a strong focus on customer support, one of our core principles. Extensive industry experience also means that Blue Ireland already has strong relationships with customers. In addition to sales opportunities, Blue Ireland will provide parts, service and warranty support for EvoQuip equipment by factory-trained technicians.”
