EvoQuip – A Versatile, Compact Machine Range
Establishing the EvoQuip range took several years of research and development. Since its inception, user friendliness has been at the heart of the brand, and as new products have been developed, the ethos has always been on simplicity, ease of maintenance, fuel efficiency and ease of transport.
Jamie Mairs - Territory Sales Manager gave us the whole story, “Terex identified a gap in the market for more compact machines that are simple to operate and maintain, and easy to transport. After much research and development, EvoQuip was launched, and we now offer a range of 3-30 tonne machines. The smaller machines give us the opportunity to meet end users who are working on smaller residential construction projects as well as plant and tool hire. Introducing them to our range and how our machines can help develop their business facilitates the introduction of bigger machines within the Terex brands later.”
The comprehensive portfolio caters for five key industries: Building & Construction Recycling, Quarries, Farming & Agriculture, Landscaping & Gardening and Plant & Tool Hire.
Jamie continues, “An example is in agricultural applications. Our machines offer agricultural contractors an opportunity to diversify in the off season, helping to retain staff and ensure a steady workload throughout the year. When customers are not farming they can use EvoQuip equipment to demolish old farm buildings, process material for lanes, driveways or drainage projects. Certain models in the range can even be transported on an agricultural trailer and can overcome access issues on narrow lanes and country roads.”
Starting with the Bison 35 crusher—capable of outputting up to 30 tonnes per hour, the EvoQuip range goes up to the Cobra 290R crusher capable of outputting 290tph (320 US tph). Today the Cobra 230 Impact Crusher, and the Colt 600 Screener are very well established and are now amongst the best sellers for EvoQuip.
New Product Launches
This year has seen three new products to expand EvoQuip’s compact crushing and screening portfolio that builds upon the success of its Cobra and Colt ranges—the Cobra 230R Impact Crusher, Cobra 290R Impact Crusher and Colt 1000 Scalping Screen.
Cobra 230R Impact Crusher:
The Cobra 230R builds on the success of the Cobra 230. A closed-circuit version which incorporates a 2.44m x 1.2m (8’ x 4’) post screen, the Cobra 230R ensures the required product specification is achieved with oversize material either being recirculated back to the crusher or stockpiled. The ability to quickly detach the complete after screen system including the oversize conveyor, provides the option of either running the machine in standard mode or transporting it separately.
Cobra 290R Impact Crusher:
With throughput potential of up to 290tph, the Cobra 290R has quickly established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the compact crushing sector. It 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.
Features include: Patented hydraulic overload protection system, two independent hydraulic controlled aprons, excellent clearance from the rotor to the belt; the short distance from the crusher outlet to the magnet, and the ability to hydraulically raise and lower the conveyor all ensure optimal material flow through the machine and optional vibrating underpan feeder, which offers complete belt protection in heavy duty recycling applications.
It isn’t by chance that having a range of screeners allows them to work hand in hand with the crushers. With each new crusher a screen has automatically been developed to work alongside the new model.
Colt 1000 Scalping Screen:
This Colt 1000 is the latest addition to the EvoQuip scalping screen range. This highly adaptable scalping screen can operate in both heavy duty and precision-screening applications and will manage the most difficult of materials.
Featuring an aggressive 4.1m (13’6”) x 1.22m (4’) double deck screen, variable screening angle with numerous screen media options, broad fines conveyor, quick set up time and excellent discharge heights ensures the Colt 1000 distinguishes itself amongst its competition.
Reversible side conveyors, or same side configuration, ensures the 20 Tonne Colt 1000 stays within the compact ethos of EvoQuip, allowing it to work on sites where available space is to a minimum.
Training and Support
While a relatively young brand, EvoQuip products come with the full backing of the Terex powerhouse, and the full suite of support that helps its customers maximise their return on investment.
High on the agenda for EvoQuip is training and application support, with all in-house technical support engineers assisting the ongoing efforts of dealer’s service personnel. This team has a vast experience of skills which are refreshed on a regular basis, and are dedicated to providing support through commissioning, on-site training and back-up support for technical issues in instances where dealer service teams cannot resolve problems with the use of the helpdesk.
Jamie tells us, “We have the advantage of having Terex Corporation behind us, so we’ve got added-value for our customers, such as the parts facility here in Dungannon. Our full package offering adds to a positive experience for our customers which is often not found with new brands.”
T-Link Telematics System
A further example of the full suite of support is the T-Link telemetry system that some EvoQuip models can be fitted with. Providing the customer with real time information on the performance of their machine, telematics maximises uptime, parts and service availability and provides factual up-to-date information from the field.
The robust product range combined with a full package of support leads to a young brand that growing rapidly across the world.
Jamie explains, “Sales in general are increasing and our order book for 2019 is looking very good. We are also expanding our dealerships; currently we are well established in North America, Scandinavia and Europe. We also have dealers in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and we are engaged in establishing dealerships in across Eastern Europe, the Middle East & South East Asia.”
“We have just returned from our first-ever US Open Event in Nashville, Tennessee. This exclusive event featured live working demos of the CobraTM 230R and CobraTM 290R impact crushers and the ColtTM 1000 scalping screen. It was an important event to engage with our dealers and customers and showcase our new products. We are delighted with the interest shown from the attendees and look forward to building on the momentum of event. ”
It’s clear that EvoQuip are well equipped with their expanding machine ranges to supply the ever-increasing demand for compact machines that can work efficiently within several growth industries.
