New compact mobile impact crusher designed to enhance productivity and profitability in all applications
OFFERING a comprehensive portfolio of products to address the needs of the compact crushing and screening markets, EvoQuip (a Terex brand) have launched a new addition to their impact crusher range – the Cobra 230.
Matt Dickson, EvoQuip product line director, said: ‘No matter what line of work you’re in, whether it’s construction and demolition, asphalt recycling, quarrying or contract crushing, the Cobra 230 impact crusher will enhance your profitability.
‘The Cobra 230 provides class-leading productivity, unmatched versatility and excellent fuel efficiency. The quick set-up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport make this machine an ideal solution for all applications.’
The Cobra 230 has been on test with J&V Construction in Ireland. Director Gerd McCann said: ‘The EvoQuip Cobra 230 has managed to surpass our expectations, handling a mix of difficult rock and heavy-duty recycled concrete with ease, and turning it into products we have been able to reuse on our construction sites.’
The rapid set-up time and intuitive control system on the Cobra 230 allow the operator to be crushing just minutes after unloading the machine from the lorry. The operator can also adjust the crusher setting easily, without the need for any tools, using the user-friendly hydraulic assist system that comes as standard on the machine.
A number of other key design features in the Cobra 230 ensure optimal material flow through the crushing process. As material moves from the feeder through the impactor and on to the product belt, each section becomes wider to ensure unrestricted flow.
Moreover, the generous under-crusher clearance, the short distance from the crusher discharge to the magnet and the ability to lower the product conveyor while running, mean the Cobra 23 is suitable for all applications.
The machine uses a highly fuel-efficient and high-performing direct-drive system to power the impact crusher. This, along with the two independent hydraulically controlled aprons, allows the operator to optimize material throughput and reduction, whilst ensuring the best fuel efficiency.
Serviceability has been an integral factor throughout the design and development of the Cobra 230. With ground-level access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refuelling points, maintenance has been made easy for the operator and has been further enhanced with features such as a hinged radiator pack and hinged diesel tank.
According to EvoQuip, the Cobra 230’s compact footprint makes the machine easy to transport and particularly suitable for crushing operations in urban areas.
