Crunch Time – July 2019
One of the world’s biggest track mounted crushers arriving soon in Australia.
One of the world’s biggest heavy duty track mounted primary crushers will soon be arriving in Australia. The unit, being brought to Australia by
Rapid Crushing is a Johnsson L160.
This enormous unit, weighing in at roughly 170 tonnes comprises a Johnsson frame fitted with a Metso C160 jaw crusher.
Rapid is the first private contractor to operate one in Australia. These units, built specifically to order in Sweden are designed to deliver industryleading crushing performance. They’re fitted with high-quality Metso crushers and can be operated by its own onboard diesel powered generator or electricity from the grid or another power
source. This unit is the ideal mobile solution for open quarries requiring a seriously high capacity, heavy-duty operation.
Glenn Irvine, Rapid’s Operations Manager said the unit will be put to good use when it arrives in Australia. ‘We’re excited to obtain this machine because it adds to our capacity to deliver what clients want – tonnage produced with absolute reliability at the best price possible.
The unit’s fleet number is aptly ‘E 747’ so it has been appropriately named, ‘Jumbo’. It is optioned with a larger feeder, rear support legs, hopper extension wings and every other option available to be set up to deliver high volume low cost primary crushing.
It adds to our capacity to crush all types of mineral ores including iron ore, gold and nickel as well as construction materials such as concrete and road aggregates, specialty fill materials, rail ballast, road base, blast stemming and rip rap.
