McCloskey held its first multi-spread demonstration event at King Bros. Quarry in Northern Ireland last month, highlighting the power of its equipment working together. Demonstrations were an integral part of activities tailored to familiarize both new and established dealers with the versatility and productivity of McCloskey’s latest products.
More than 70 attendees from 27-plus McCloskey dealerships enjoyed guided tours to inspect and watch the spreads at work and have the opportunity for questions and answers with McCloskey experts. The two-day event also featured factory tours of the Granville and Killyman facilities, and a dealer forum at the Clonoe facility.
“We are deeply appreciative for the opportunity King Bros. gave us to demonstrate our equipment at their quarry. The perfect weather, combined with this perfect venue, made the event a resounding success on every level. We extend our sincere thanks to them, as well as to all those who joined us, we were delighted with the turnout,” said Steve Walls, McCloskey International sales director. “The demonstrations, coupled with the dealer forum, have set a new model for us to assist dealers in developing and delivering high productivity solutions for customers.”
For the three demonstrations, the equipment was arranged in productive combinations of crushing, screening and stacking, with one dedicated to showcase the newest compact crushers on the market. Material varied over the three spreads, showing the superior end product delivered in two key applications including demolition material and crushing blasted rock.
The first demonstration featured a J44 jaw crusher being fed 600- x 600-mm blasted rock producing output sizes at 3- to 4-in. minus. This was fed into a C38 cone crusher, which, due to its high crushing ratio, output high-quality material at 24-mm minus. The material was then fed to McCloskey’s iconic S190 Triple Deck screener to deliver four products ranging from 22-mm+ oversize to 12-mm minus fines. The second area featured a J45 jaw crusher feeding crushed aggregate into the rugged and productive R155 reclaimer. The J45 material was fed in at 500-mm minus and output 4- to 5-in. minus to the screener, which then stockpiled three products ranging from 80-mm+ to 30-mm minus fines. The new I34R recirculating impact crusher and J35 jaw crusher were showcased in the third demonstration area.
