EvoQuip introduced the Bison 160 Hybrid, a hybrid hook-lift jaw crusher.

According to EvoQuip, which is a Terex brand, the Bison 160 Hybrid is suited to hard rock and construction and demolition recycling applications.

The Bison 160 Hybrid is the fourth model in the Bison series and the first to utilize diesel-electric drive technology to reduce running costs in addition to cutting noise and fuel emissions. According to EvoQuip, this makes the Bison 160 Hybrid an ideal machine for urban areas.

“The Bison 160 Hybrid hook-lift jaw crusher represents a new milestone for EvoQuip,” says Matt Dickson, EvoQuip product line director. “It is an ideal crusher for waste contractors who can utilize existing hook-lift vehicles to either bring material to depot for processing or alternatively bring the crusher to the waste on site – turning waste into profit while providing excellent productivity and fuel efficiency.”

The dual-powered Bison 160 is equipped with a 28-in. x 20-in. single-toggle hydraulically adjustable jaw crusher. The electric drive allows customers to reverse the crusher to clear a blockage or run in reverse for asphalt recycling, ensuring better all-around efficiency. The optional deflector plate is fitted on the moving jaw, providing belt protection by allowing uncrushable objects to pass through the crushing chamber and onto the discharge belt.

Additionally, EvoQuip says the Bison 160 is ideal for those working in space-restricted sites. Ease of transport, compact size, ease of operation and quick setup times all mean the Bison 160 can get to site easily and begin operation within minutes of unloading, EvoQuip adds.

The Bison 160 Hybrid is ideal for recycling with under-crusher clearance, minimal snag points and a short distance between the crusher discharge conveyor and magnet. This overband magnet removes rebar, which can be discharged to the right or left of the machine depending on site configuration.

The Bison 160 includes a heavy-duty vibrating grizzly feeder. The intelligent feeder control system is based on power draw and feed level to ensure optimal material flow in the jaw and throughput.

“The incorporation of the hybrid diesel-electric drive technology, quick setup times, simple operation and ease of transport make this machine an ideal solution for indoor and outdoor applications, while reducing overall fuel consumption, noise and harmful emissions,” Dickson says. “These are all issues which our customers have identified as key priorities for the future.”
