Powerful crusher combines maximum mobility and high performance in a compact footprint
McCloskey International will use Hillhead 2022 to unveil the latest addition to the company’s cone crusher line-up – the C2C. Featuring the powerful MC200 cone, the C2C brings all the power of a 200hp cone crusher to a compact footprint that offers high manoeuvrability together with a host of features aimed at boosting productivity in aggregate, construction, demolition, and recycling applications.
According to McCloskey, the machine is designed for superior performance with high capacity, better product quality, optimum versatility, and improved fuel efficiency. Standard features include premium-quality components, unrivalled ground-level access, full-size MC200 cone, powerful engine, efficient conveyor design, and continuous load and material monitoring.
The C2C delivers high production from material feed to end-product stockpile owing to its innovative material flow features. A low feed height, large 6.2 cubic metre (8.1 cubic yard) capacity Hardox-lined hopper allows for stop function, while the unrestricted feed opening improves intake capability and reduces the risk of blockage.
As the material enters the cone chamber, features including a long stroke and variable speed contribute to high productivity, whilst ensuring the highest quality of end product. Moreover, multi-layer crushing delivers greater capacity and better reduction and shape with less liner wear.
As the material moves to the heavy-duty 48in wide conveyor, the large gap between the crusher discharge and main conveyor feeder enhances material flow. Stockpiles can be formed up to 3.3m (10ft 10in) in height, and with ground-level access the belt is easy to service and maintain.
Power is built into the C2C, with a robust, 280kW (375hp) on-board engine along with high-capacity fuel and hydraulic tanks to reduce the number of refuelling intervals. Mobility on site and between sites is facilitated by remote-controlled tracks that easily move and position the crusher. The C2C can be setup and ready to work in less than five minutes.
Technology has been a key factor in the development of the C2C, with a 12in DSE control panel for maximum operational performance and reliability providing push-button control of the cone, track, and feeder functions. The crusher is fitted with a telematics modem for the new 365SiteConnex program – a complete connectivity solution for highly accurate monitoring of McCloskey products.
As with all McCloskey equipment, safety is paramount, and the C2C is equipped with a number of features to ensure the workplace and the operator are secure. Engine safety shutdown systems, start-up alarms, full safety guarding, external maintenance access, and a tagout capability on the isolator all contribute to the safe operation and maintenance of the equipment. Ground-level access also promotes safety and allows for quick service and maintenance, thereby reducing downtime.
‘The C2C is another example of McCloskey designing and delivering on what our customers are asking for,’ said Toni Laaksonen, senior vice-president of McCloskey International. ‘We listened to producers who needed the power of a full-size cone, but also the ability to move their equipment easily on and around their sites. There has been no compromise in power or productivity with the C2C; it’s a perfect example of leveraging the best features from our existing cone crushers and adding mobility based on how our customers use the equipment every day.’
