Telsmith marketed its Iron Giant crusher at the 2018 AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo in Houston.

The Iron Giant is available in two sizes, 4448 and 5060, with the 4448 weighing 126,000 pounds and the 5060 weighing 191,000 pounds, respectively.

According to the company, the Iron Giant jaws are designed with a long crushing chamber, providing high volume crushing and aggressive crushing action to deliver reliable performance.

To lower maintenance costs and maximize uptime, the company incorporated maintenance features, such as replaceable liners built into several areas to protect components from wear.

To begin adjustment, hydraulic cylinders do the heavy work of unlocking the wedge and moving the beam forward, the company says. Easy-to-handle lightweight shims are used to fix the setting. Hydraulics then drive the wedge in place, firmly locking the beam into position. Also, no special tools are needed to carry out the adjustment.

The wedge lock system incorporates a unique tension spring bracket that moves with the beam during adjustment. This saves time by eliminating the need to reset the spring each time the crusher setting is changed, getting the operation up and running quickly.
