Anaconda Equipment added the J12 jaw crusher and the I12 impact crusher featuring McLanahan Corp.’s Universal crushers to its product line.

Both track-mounted developments are a result of Anaconda and McLanahan joining forces in 2019.

The jaw crusher

The J12 jaw crusher is fitted with a 44-in. x 26-in. direct hydraulic drive Universal jaw. The chamber comes with full hydraulic adjustment and hydraulic tramp release and reset as standard, Anaconda says. Utilizing a direct hydraulic drive means the unit can also be run in reverse to satisfy a multitude of customer applications, the company adds.

Large access doors are on the side, back and top of the chamber and a hydraulic-opening upper section of the housing provide easy and safe access, according to Anaconda. In addition, two independent, gravity-hung impact curtains can be individually adjusted from the exterior of the chamber.

The chassis

According to Anaconda, the unique part of the two new track crushers is they are on a generic chassis allowing for the placement of either crushing chamber, giving dealers and customers immense flexibility.

A Cummins engine powers the generic chassis, and the machines come with a 14-ft. variable-speed vibrating grizzly feeder, hydraulic hopper wing extensions, an overband magnet, and a side discharge dirt belt – all as standard.

The versatility of the J12 and I12 allows them to deal with hard and abrasive rock such as basalt and granite, Anaconda adds.

Fully pretested before dispatch, the J12 and I12 arrive on site in their transport position. It is estimated that the crushers can be fully operational within 20 minutes of delivery on site, the company says, and the machines can be converted from a jaw to an impactor and vice versa in minimal time.
