It’s massive, green, and crushes raw materials with immense power and strength. So, it’s no surprise that Bay of Plenty firm, Waiotahi, has dubbed it’s new McCloskey I44R Impact Crusher, ‘The Hulk’.
The monster machine is already living up to its superhero namesake in the two quarries where it has been put to work by Waiotahi, creating a significant ramp up in production with its incredible output, says director, Phillip Claydon.
“The crusher has had a huge impact on our business, especially at our Blue Rock quarry, where we don’t have the space to run up big stockpiles. This can make it a challenge to meet our summer order spike, however this season, the crusher’s ability to produce at such a fast rate allowed us to take orders, produce the material while the trucks were running, load it straight out , and send it out the gate. This high production piece of equipment is a step change for us.”
The McCloskey I44R combines the productivity of a 45” impactor with the versatility of a full screening and recirculating system, allowing operators like Waiotahi to produce a crushed and screened final product with one machine. The combination of the impactor with the High Energy Screenbox and a recirculating conveyor deliver maximum productivity and unmatched portability.
Although based mainly at Blue Rock, a hard rock quarry producing all grades of standard roading material, Waiotahi has also operated the McCloskey I44R at its metal pit at Reid’s Road, where it produces High PSV sealing chip and concrete aggregates.
