Every machine in the EvoQuip range has a focus not just on performance, but also useability, transportability and fuel economy. Tricon Mining Equipment has brought the full range of Terex EvoQuip crushing and screening equipment to the Australian market, with a machine suited to almost any crushing or screening application. This, coupled with Telestack mobile bulk handers, Anaconda Equipment International, Matec Italia, Simem and various other brands, has cemented Tricon as a premier player in the Australian crushing and screening industry, Tricon’s Rob Price says. “The most exciting thing about EvoQuip,” he says, “is that there is a machine to suit everyone. “For a long time, customers had been forced to either buy a machine that was considerably larger than it needed to be, or one that was lacking in both build quality and…

Workers at JCB’s UK factories face a shorter working week due to fears that the coronavirus will have a huge impact on component parts arriving in from China.

However, more than 25 per cent of JCB’s suppliers in China remain closed and those that have reopened are…

Italian crushing specialist MB has been touring its crusher units across the US and Europe, giving construction-fair visitors a live look at the machinery in action. The machines were designed for operators looking for a way to reduce the costs of disposal and transport of material, fuel and personnel, says MB, which over 15 years in business has expanded into sieving, milling, handling and selection systems. With a crusher on site, says MB, material is recycled on the spot through reuse of the crushed material, transport and management costs are reduced, landfill disposal is eliminated and the crushed material is produced at the desired size. MB’s next big show will be CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 in Las Vegas from March 10 to 14 where MB Crusher will set up a test field at the Silver…
