EvoQuip launched a new addition to its impact crushing range: the Cobra 230 impact crusher. Matt Dickson, EvoQuip product line director, said, “The Cobra 230 Impact Crusher is a machine that provides class leading productivity, unmatched versatility and excellent fuel efficiency. The quick set up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for all applications.”
The Cobra 230 has been on test with J & V Construction in Ireland. Gerd McCann, J & V Construction director, 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 enables the operator to be crushing minutes after unloading the machine. The operator can also adjust the crusher setting easily without the need for any tools using the user-friendly hydraulic assist that is standard on the machine.
Optimal Material Flow
There are a number of key design features in the Cobra 230 that ensure an optimal material flow through the crushing process. As material moves from the feeder through the impactor onto the product belt each section becomes wider ensuring an unrestricted flow. The excellent under crusher clearance, the short distance from the crusher discharge to the magnet and the ability to lower the product conveyor while running make the Cobra 230 the ideal machine in all applications.
The Cobra 230 uses an extremely fuel efficient and high performing direct drive system to power the impact crusher. This along with the two independent hydraulic controlled aprons allows the operator to optimize the material throughput and reduction whilst ensuring the best fuel efficiency.
Serviceability has been integral throughout the design and development of the Cobra 230. With ground level access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refueling points, it ensures maintenance is easy for the operator. This is further enhanced with features such as the hinged radiator pack and hinged diesel tank.
The compact footprint makes the Cobra 230 easy to transport and also makes it an ideal machine for working in smaller areas, according to the company.
