THREE Scottish customers have recently chosen Powerscreen for the first time after splashing out on a 1000 Maxtrak machine.

Grange Quarry, Barrachander Quarry and Miller Plant have all invested in the mobile cone crusher, which has been designed for direct feed applications without the need for pre-screening on clean rock.

At the centre of the machine is the Automax cone crusher, described by Blue Group as providing both “excellent reduction and product cubicity for the creation of quality aggregate and sub-base material”.

Hydraulic release capabilities integrated within the model are said ensure any uncrushable material moving in to the chamber is safely discharged.

Made on a heavy duty chassis and track frame, the machines comes with a dust suppression system as standard and fitted with Powerscreen’s Pulse Telematics system.

Miller Plant offers contract crushing and earthworks contracting services, as well as owning and operating its own quarries.  Barrachander Quarry is an independent quarry on the west coast of Scotland and is capable of supplying infrastructure and renewable energy projects with aggregates as well as heavy plant hire and contract crushing. Grange Quarry also supply aggregates throughout Scotland and the north of England, as well as mobile concrete solutions, tipper and truck mixer hire and technical solutions.

Ian Miller, MD of Miller Plant said the 1000 Maxtrak was “offering increased production and quality of finished product”.  Barrachander director Calum McCrae highlighted improved fuel efficiency, more production and better shape. Meanwhile, Stuart Dodd from Grange Quarry said the firm was “really impressed both with the shape of the material coming off, as well as the feed size which is an improvement over our old machine”.

Dermot Donaghy, sales manager at Blue Scotland commented, “All three of these customers had been using competitor machines for many years, meaning they knew those machines inside out.

“For these guys to move over illustrates the quality of Powerscreen as they had to be notably superior in order for them to make the switch.”
