UK’s first Powerscreen XH 320 SR goes to Lickley Group

Paul Marks becomes new product development director as part of strategic move to expand and strengthen company

LICKLEY Group’s Contract Crushing and Screening division has taken delivery of the UK’s first Powerscreen XH 320 SR mobile crushing plant. The machine joins a modern rental fleet of crushing and screening plants and materials-handling equipment offered by the North Yorkshire-based company for both operated and non-operated short- and long-term hire throughout the UK.

The XH 320 SR is a mid-sized horizontal impact crusher which, according to Powerscreen, provides excellent reduction and highly consistent product shape. Equally at home crushing coal, quarried rock and recycled aggregates, the machine features a rapid set-up time, site agility and manoeuvrability on its crawler undercarriage, a fuel-efficient direct drive and an output potential of up to 320 tonnes/h depending on the application and materials to be processed.

The built-in cartridge grizzly on the XH 320 has a 42mm nominal spacing and there is a load-management system for feeder speed control. The crusher chamber features hydraulic overload protection and adjustment, with crusher speed variation controlled by a user-friendly PLC control system. An independent under-crusher vibrating pan feeder is fitted as standard and the modular conveyor has a simple hydraulic raise/lower facility to aid clearance of tramp metal rebar.

Supplied by Blue Group, the model taken by Lickley Contract Crushing and Screening is the XH 320 SR, which is equipped with a 3,300mm x 1,500mm double-deck post screen. This facility allows the stockpiling of a clean mid product which would normally only be achieved through the use of a separate two-deck screening plant.

Commenting on the new machine, company owner and director Mark Lickley said: ‘We’ve been a customer of Blue Central for about a year now and they have already added various Powerscreen crushing and screening plants to our fleet, as well as Telestack mobile conveyor systems.

‘Our new XH 320 SR has been hard at work on a coal crushing contract and we are very pleased with its performance, as we are with all the support and advice from Blue Central.

‘What we like about the whole Blue Group set-up is the nationwide coverage through parts and service which I rely on to maintain my fleet. Their spares facility is second to none and this was one of the key factors that helped me to make my machine choice between the three leading brands I looked into.’
