Premier choice

Privately owned Robins of Hertsmonceux have recently taken delivery of a new Pegson 1165HR Premiertrak crusher for use at their chalk quarry near Pyecombe in East Sussex. Established in 1962, the company’s main business is the supply of crushed chalk for spreading on acidic soils, although they also have a growing recycling business, crushing waste concrete to MOT-type specifications for use as sub-base on road and building projects.

The diesel/hydraulic drive 1165HR Premiertrak features Pegson’s high-performance M-series single-toggle jaw crusher with hydraulic overload setting adjustment. Feed is from a full-width hopper and twin-step vibrating grizzly feeder that allows fines to by-pass the crusher via a two-way chute; fine material can be diverted to the side of the plant or allowed forward to form an all-in product. A magnetic overband separator, side discharge conveyor and dust-suppression sprays are all included as standard.

Robins of Herstmonceux are currently utilizing their 1165HR Premiertrak to process lumps of chalk, although when necessary the machine is also used to crush concrete and brick materials brought to the site for recycling. With its high manoeuvrability and remote operator control, the 47-tonne machine is easily tracked from the upper part of the quarry to the area where demolition materials are tipped.


Quarry owner Gary Robins, said: ‘This tracked crusher gives us, for the first time, the flexibility to process efficiently both chalk and demolition materials at the one site.’
