Cartem launches new self-propelled chipping spreader
At Hillhead 2010 it was difficult to miss the bright red Spreadmaster on the Cartem stand. This new self-propelled chipping spreader was being unveiled for the first time at the show prior to it being launched onto the UK and world markets.
Cartem is entering the self propelled chipping spreader market with this Spreadmaster that has more power and a greater spreading width than some very established competitors.
Leicester, UK based Cartem is best known for its bitumen handling and transfer equipment and now it is diversifying by introducing the complementary Spreadmaster to lay the chips onto the bitumen during surface dressing operations.
The Spreadmaster is a highly advanced machine with a market-leading 4.4m spread width and automatic feed control.
Controlled from a centrally mounted cab at the front, the Spreadmaster has a 3.0m³ capacity rear receiving hopper with hydraulically raised side wings. Two 500mm wide belt conveyors feed the chips to two 1.2m³ capacity front spreading hoppers that can be fitted with cut off plates and extended sideways to allow spreading widths from 300mm to 4.4m
The Spreadmaster has a hydraulically operated tow hook at the rear and the machine is powerful enough to pull a 32 tonne tipper full of chips up a 15% incline. Inside the cab there is a conventional steering wheel and a single joystick for the control of all the drive and spreading functions (including the rear tow hook).
New Hercules tracked primary crusher
A new British company called Crushers UK used Hillhead 2010 for the launch of its new Hercules 1830 tracked crusher. Run by a team with in-depth knowledge of the crushing and recycling equipment business, the company is producing its new machine at its facility in Leicestershire, UK.
This new British-built Hercules 1830 track-mounted primary crusher was revealed for the first time at Hillhead 2010.
The Hercules 1830 is a medium sized primary crusher with an 800mm x 500mm opening and a jaw setting that can be varied from 100mm to 25mm. Capacity of the single toggle jaw crusher is up to 100 tonnes/hr with the 100mm setting.
The crusher has matched flywheels, replaceable manganese-steel sideliners and invertible manganese-steel jaws.
The machine has a 3.0m³ capacity feed hopper, a 2900mm long by 800mm wide grizzly feeder and a 800mm wide main conveyor with a discharge height of 2400mm. There is also an electrically powered magnetic separator with a permanent magnet.
