More than 450 distributors and customers from 36 countries attended the Powerscreen World Dealer Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The distributors gathered to learn about how the company is addressing the latest challenges facing its customers, including the need for higher-quality, more-closely specified products; efficiency and operating costs; and environmental pressures for cleaner, quieter equipment.

Attendees shared best practices, learning from the Powerscreen team and each other, as well as through hands-on equipment demonstrations. The event featured seminars and conferences, an evening yacht cruise, an Everglades airboat adventure tour, and an extensive demo day display of 19 Powerscreen crushing and screening machines held at the large Palm Beach Aggregates quarry site north of Fort Lauderdale.

The open day included an exclusive introduction of seven new machines in operation, including the following:

The Trakpactor 260SR compact mobile impact crusher is available as standard with no post-screen, or with an optional post-screen and recirculating system. Primarily used for recycling and demolition for one-stop production of sized aggregate from raw feed material, it is equally suited as a small primary crusher for quarries. Operator benefits include versatility owing to high mobility, rapid setup and retractable post-screen system.

The new Powerscreen Trakpactor 260SR impact crusher was launched at the event.

The Premiertrak 600 mobile jaw crusher features a high-performance 47-in. x 32-in. reversible primary jaw. It is designed for demolition and hard rock quarrying and mining, and is available as diesel-hydraulic or diesel-electric. Both versions are built for high production with low maintenance and running costs. The model demonstrated has diesel direct drive with a Scania DC13 low-speed engine and advanced hydraulics. The electric version has an oversized genset sufficient to run another plant.

The 1150 Maxtrak mobile cone crusher is a mid-size version of the 1000 and 1300 Maxtrak models with the same improved product shaping. It is offered as direct feed, or as a pre-screen version to achieve higher production with dirty feed, and has a hydraulic-folding system to convert to direct feed in seconds. A choice of strokes and three liner options is available for a variety of applications. It accepts feed up to 8 in. and is powered by a Scania DC 13 engine.

The Chieftain 2200 mobile screen features a patent-pending drive system with four-bearing screen drive for each screen box. This concept builds on the Chieftain 1400 efficiency combination of high screen angle and four-bearing drive system. The Chieftain 2200 screen can easily convert from four-bearing to two-bearing drive for many applications in sand/gravel, slags, quarry de-dusting, etc.
