The Colt 1000 puts on an ‘impressive performance.’
EvoQuip’s latest innovation—the Colt 1000 scalping screen—has received a glowing report from Rapid Aggregates in the UK who tested the machine before its launch at the 2018 Hillhead Exhibition. Building upon the success of the Colt 600 and Colt 800, the COLT 1000 is the largest screen in the portfolio and capable of processing up to 360tph (403us tph), depending on application.
Commenting on its performance, Trevor Armitage, Rapid Aggregates Managing Director said, “I am impressed by the performance of the Colt 1000, a powerful machine for such a small package. There is nothing it can’t cope with and output is comparable to larger screens. The screenbox is very aggressive and excellent at clearing both stone and wet soil material.”
The highly adaptable machine incorporates an aggressive double deck screen of 3.96m (13’) x 1.22m (4’). The variable screening angle and numerous screen media options enable the machine to operate in both heavy duty scalping and precision screening applications, and to manage even the most difficult of materials. In addition, the full 13ft bottom deck ensures optimal classification in fine screening applications.
The versatile and mobile Colt 1000 includes a compact footprint, maintaining the ethos of the range. Standard configuration discharges the fines product to the right side of the plant, with the mid-grade on the left. Both conveyors can be ordered reversed as an option, with the ability to place both conveyors on the same side of the unit once the Colt 1000 reaches the field. Flexibility is further enhanced with two-way split conversion by simply relocating the tail conveyor to collect both top and bottom deck pieces.
The Colt 1000 achieves excellent conveyor discharge heights and by coupling a broad belt on the fines the machine distinguishes itself from the competition. The feeder system has class leading capacity through the folding hopper extensions. The 1000mm wide feed conveyor complements the screen width to ensure maximum screen area is managed from the feed point.
The machine was one of three new products launched by EvoQuip at Hillhead to expand their compact crushing and screening portfolio. The other machines were the Cobra 230R impact crusher and Cobra 290R impact crusher. The Cobra range of Impactors provides class leading productivity, unmatched versatility and excellent fuel efficiency; the range is designed with the operator in mind in terms of ease of use and serviceability.
All models can be fitted with the T-Link telemetry system which provides 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.
