McCloskey Introduces new C2C Compact Cone Crusher at Hillhead 2022
The new McCloskey C2C Compact Cone Crusher will be unveiled at Hillhead 2022, on the McCloskey International Stand, L1. Making its UK public debut at the show on 21-23 June 2022, visitors will have the unique opportunity to see up-close the latest addition to McCloskey’s cone crusher line up.
Bringing the power of the powerful MC200 cone to a compact footprint, the new C2C offers operators a highly manoeuvrable, highly portable cone crusher, packed with features to maximise productivity.
McCloskey mobile cone crushers are designed to deliver superior performance while also achieving high capacity, better product quality, optimum versatility and improved fuel efficiency. The new C2C is the latest example of this, with quality components, unrivalled ground level access, full-size MC200 cone, powerful engine, efficient conveyor design, and continuous load and material monitoring all standard features on the new model.
Operators will benefit from the C2C’s high production rates, with high efficiency throughout the machine, from material feed to end-product stockpiling. Innovative material flow features included low feed height and a large 6.2m3 (8.1yd3) capacity Hardox® lined hopper, whilst the unrestricted feed opening improves intake capabilities and reduces the risk of blockage.
As the material enters the cone chamber, features including a long stroke and high speed contribute to the C2C’s high productivity, whilst ensuring the highest quality end-product with variable speed. Multi-layer crushing delivers great capacity, better reduction and shape combined with less liner wear.
As the material moves to the class-leading, heavy duty 48” wide conveyor, the large gap between the crusher discharge and main conveyor feeder further enhances material flow. Stockpiles are formed up to 3.3m (10’ – 10”) and with ground level access, the belt is easy to maintain and service.
Available from McCloskey Equipment, the C2C is designed to deliver maximum uptime for operators. With the ability to be setup and ready to work in less than five minutes, McCloskey’s new crusher features high-capacity fuel and hydraulic tanks to reduce re-fuelling intervals. Power is at the core of the new C2C cone crusher, with a robust 280 Kw (375 Hp) engine that is easily accessible for servicing.
The machine is highly mobile both on-site and between locations, with remote control tracks providing maximum manoeuvrability for operators, enabling them to easily transport and position the crusher, maximising the efficiency of any project site.
Technology has been a key factor in the development of the C2C, with a 12” DSE control panel for the highest operational performance and reliability, providing push button control of the cone, track and feeder functions. The crusher is fitted with a telematics modem for the new 365SiteConnex program, a complete connectivity solution for highly accurate monitoring of McCloskey products.
As with all McCloskey equipment, safety is paramount, and the C2C is equipped with multiple features to ensure the workplace and the operator are secure. Engine safety shutdown systems, start-up alarms, full safety guarding, external maintenance access and a tagout capability on the isolator all contribute to the safe operation and maintenance of the equipment. Ground level access also promotes safety, and allows for quick service and maintenance, reducing the downtime for the operation.
“The C2C is another example of McCloskey designing and delivering on what our customers are asking for,” said Toni Laaksonen, Senior Vice President, McCloskey International. “We listened to producers who needed the power of a full-size cone, but also the ability to move their equipment easily on and around their sites. There has been no compromise in power or productivity with the C2C, and it is a perfect example of leveraging the best features from our existing cone crushers, and adding mobility based on how our customers use the equipment every day.”
Tim Watson, Sales and Marketing Manager, McCloskey Equipment, added, “We are excited to bring the new McCloskey C2C to the UK, and look forward to delivering this new machine to customers. We are confident our customers will immediately benefit from the C2C’s innovative design and class-leading feature set.”
The C2C cone crusher will be formally introduced on 21-13 June 2022, on the McCloskey International Stand L1, at Hillhead 2022.
