EvoQuip launch upgraded Bison 120
Revamped jaw crusher features a range of enhancements including new Stage V engine and PLC system
EVOQUIP have launched a revamped version of their Bison 120 jaw crusher, with a number of enhancements designed to reinforce the brand’s fundamentals of being easy to operate, maintain and transport – including a new, fuel-efficient Stage V Deutz 2.2 L3 engine, larger crusher drive motor and easily adjustable belt tensioner.
The sleek new model features new-style panels that offer ready access to the engine bay from all three sides, making servicing and maintenance easy. The revamped model, whilst still being simple to use, now has the added benefit of a programmable logic controller (PLC) with an intuitive push-button control panel as standard, along with a remote control that allows the operator to adjust the jaw’s closed-side setting (CSS) and start/stop the machine from the loader/excavator cab.
With almost 100 units sold globally, the Bison 120 has been a core product in the EvoQuip portfolio since its inception in 2016. Gaby Stewart, product manager, said: ‘The Bison 120 has proved to be a very popular EvoQuip machine with customers throughout the world, due to its ease of transport and simplicity of use.’
The Bison 120 is specifically designed for small-to-medium-sized operators for whom versatility, manoeuvrability and transportability are of key importance. Fast and simple to set up, it is strong enough to withstand the toughest of applications, yet small enough to fit inside a container for transport. Featuring a 680mm x 400mm single-toggle jaw crusher, the Bison 120 is hydraulically driven, allowing the crusher to be reversed in order to clear blockages, or to run in permanent reverse for sticky applications such as asphalt.
