American success for Powerscreen

Powerscreen Warrior 1400X screen

Powerscreen New England sell first Warrior 1400X screen in the US market

POWERSCREEN have sold their first ever Warrior 1400X screen in the US to Carrier Home Builders Inc. Established in 1971, Carrier Home Builders have hired many Powerscreen machines in the past six years but recently bought and installed their first Warrior 1400X screen for a project in Farmington, Connecticut.

Before purchasing the plant from Powerscreen New England, a long-serving distributor in the north-eastern US, the construction firm tested a Warrior 800 screen and were immediately impressed with the capability of the machine.


Steve Carrier, vice-president of Carrier Home Builders, commented: ‘We couldn’t believe what the little machine was capable of doing. However, once we saw the Warrior 1400X we made the decision to buy the bigger machine with the higher capacity.’

The Warrior 1400X screen is currently working in topsoil, sand and gravel applications, as well as helping to produce stone products in conjunction with a Powerscreen 1000 Maxtrak cone crusher.

The Warrior 1400X unit has been designed with economy in mind with reduced engine running speed and enhanced hydraulics, resulting in greater fuel economy over the previous model. This can also lead to a significant financial saving for customers during the service life of the machine.

The Warrior 1400X can be fitted with either a Tier 3/Stage 3A four-cylinder Caterpillar C4.4 ATAAC diesel engine (120hp at 1,800 rev/min), or a Tier 4i/Stage 3B four-cylinder Caterpillar C4.4 diesel engine (110hp at 1,800 rev/min).

The screen has also been developed with serviceability in mind with features including: a class-leading screenbox raise function; and ability to raise the collection conveyor. The standard spec 1400X has been built using parts to easily convert from two- to three-way split machine on site.  

Mr Carrier explained: ‘It was easy to set up and work on, as there was little need for wrenches and screen changing was simple. Another key benefit was that we could load the machine from the back with a loader or fold the sides down to load with an excavator from the sides.’

Mr Carrier also praised the after-sales service provided by Powerscreen New England. ‘It is important to have an ‘in-state’ dealer with a service hub close by and parts in stock when we need them. We have worked with Graham Wylie (from Powerscreen New England) for over five years now and are assured by his product knowledge and experience in the industry.’
