Hillhead visitors to get ‘sneak peek’ of new Bison 220R in working demo

EvoQuip has announced plans to run live working demonstrations of the new Bison 220R jaw crusher at next month’s Hillhead exhibition.

The machine boasts an 820mm x 550mm jaw inlet and has 240MP compressive strength to process a wide range of applications. The manufacturer said the hydrostatic drive system optimises fuel efficiency and also enhances performance, complemented by the ability to run the chamber in reverse.

The optional ‘R’ section (recirculating conveyor) enables the required product specification being achieved, with oversize material either being recirculated back to the crusher or stockpiled. The ability to quickly detach the complete afterscreen system, including the oversize conveyor, provides the option of either running the machine in standard mode or transporting separately.

The Bison 220R also features an 8’ x 4’ single deck screen on the ‘R’ section, to aid efficient screening. Operators can benefit from the flexibility to raise and lower the product conveyor.

EvoQuip will also display the Caiman 150 shredder at Hillhead. The model offers material reduction for diverse applications such as C&D, asphalt, skip waste, green waste, wood, and household waste. The heart of the machine is a compact 1.5m twin shaft shredding unit, which produces up to 80,000Nm of torque per shaft.

Flexibility is boosted by the option to operate the shredder with either synced or independent shafts, along with other design features including a ‘robust’ track subframe with bolt-on tracks, catering to both track and track/hooklift versions. 

Barry O’Hare, business line director, said, “We are very excited to exhibit once again at Hillhead and especially to be providing a sneak peek of the Bison 220R in a live working demo. This machine is the latest addition to our jaw crusher range, and it will be working throughout the show so attendees will be able to see firsthand what it can do.

“We encourage people to stop by our stand, where they will also be able to view the Caiman 150 shredder and chat to our team about their compact crushing and screening needs.”

The EvoQuip team will also be using its presence at Hillhead to raise funds for Cystic fibrosis. Paul O’Hagan, EvoQuip business development manager, sadly lost his brother to the condition last year. In memory of him and to support people currently living with the condition, the team will be fundraising for Cystic Fibrosis Trust with a game and opportunities to donate during the show.
