McCloskey International added all-terrain stackers to its existing equipment lineup, delivering a portable solution for stockpiling.

The all-terrain stackers blend both the benefits of onsite track mobility with the productivity of a radial conveyor, according to the company, allowing the conveyor to switch from track mode to radial in a seconds.

The stackers, designed for use in any terrain, range from 60 ft. to 150 ft. and can be moved without the need to remove the wheels, according to McCloskey. Built-in leveling indicators allow operators to position the stacker – regardless of the terrain – with independent hydraulic jack legs to stabilize the machine once in place.

Other standard features of the all-terrain stackers include tires with tread patterns for more traction in tough terrain; internal wheel drive motors allowing for radial travel; and a counterweight design to enhance stability and safety, while also improving stockpile capacity.

“Helping customers achieve greater production levels is what drives us to design and manufacture innovative products,” says Paschal McCloskey, president and CEO of McCloskey. “This patent-pending design evolved from watching and listening to the customers’ challenges when stockpiling material in a variety of conditions and locations. We will continue to look at developing new products to meet these unique challenges around the globe.”
