Their representative, Thomas Gourley,
said, “The Premiertrak 300 gets a five star
rating from me. As a family-run company
we are a relatively small team and any
time and money savings can make a big
difference.
“Its fuel efficiency is second to none –
when producing 63 mm (2.5”) road base
material it gave us an excellent tonnes per
hour output to fuel efficiency ratio. In terms
of fuel consumption, we found it outper-
formed other crushers we have used by
around 30%.
“This is in addition to the time saved by
not having to stop production to refuel, and
in this industry saving time is saving money,
allowing us to do what we do best – keep
producing quality material to meet our
customers’ needs.”
He continued, “The size of the machine
for transport was another massive benefit.
With the same output tonnage and finished
product quality as other crushers we’ve
used, we saved up to 70% in transport costs
when moving the crusher between sites. I
was delighted with this machine’s perfor-
mance and would happily recommend it to
anyone.”
The crusher uses a 1000 mm x 600 mm
(40” x 24”) jaw chamber and is capable of
producing up to 280 tph (308 US tph) of
crushed material. It has been developed
with the option of a vibrating grizzly feeder
(VGF) or a large fully independent hydrau-
lically driven pre-screen, which improves
fines removal and reduces chamber wear
costs for the customer.
Both options are proportionally
controlled by engine load to maintain excel-
lent throughput.
To coincide with the independent pre-
screen feature, an optional hydraulically
folding extended side conveyor
with a stockpile height of 3.1
m (10’ 2”) has been added to
the machine to improve stock-
pile capacity.
The new bypass chute
design incorporates a ‘flap
gate’ to allow the operator to
switch between using the side
conveyor or sending the mate-
rial to the main belt without
