EvoQuip launches largest Bison jaw crusher

MANUFACTURER EvoQuip has launched the largest addition to its Bison jaw crusher range.

The 34-tonne Bison 340 crusher has a 1000mm x 600mm jaw chamber opening and boasts an output potential of 280tph depending on application.

A primary jaw crusher, the machine is designed for quarrying, demolition, recycling, and mining applications. It features track mobility for a quick setup time and hydraulic crusher setting adjustments for ‘total control’ of product size.

EvoQuip explained that the hydrostatic drive, which is included as standard, allows the crusher to be run in reverse. This can be particularly useful for removing blockages from the chamber or when crushing in a sticky application like asphalt.

Andrew Armstrong, EvoQuip product manager, said, “The Bison 340 jaw crusher is a big addition to EvoQuip’s Bison range, which can cater for operations of all different sizes and needs. It has a heavy-duty, wear-resistant feed hopper. The aggressive crushing action is accompanied by a high swing jaw, which encourages material entry into the crushing chamber. Pair that with the hydrostatic ability to run the crusher in reverse, this results in the Bison 340 having high production and minimal downtime.

“As with the entire EvoQuip range, the Bison 340 is compact and easily transported from site to site. The Bison 340 is at home in hard rock quarry applications, as well as recycling applications. It also has an efficient drive system and low engine RPM to enable it to be run with low fuel consumption.”
