Nordtrack units get off on the right track
Metso’s new Nordtrack mobile crushing and screening offering well received by customers
METSO’s Nordtrack crushing and screening product range for the aggregates industry, specifically targeting the general contractors, was launched in October 2019 and consists of 19 products that complement Metso’s existing mobile crushing and screening solutions.
The new products are said to be ideal for general contractors, thanks to their compact size and high performance, combined with an attractive price point.
Nordtracks have standard designs for off-the-shelf availability, plug-and-play features and they can utilize the extensive Metso support network, making them well suited to a variety of applications such recycling, demolition and the processing of sand and gravel.
‘Sales of Metso’s Nordtrack products have taken off as expected, and our customers have appreciated the way we meet the needs of different customer segments with this new offering,’ said Vesa Tuloisela, director of Metso’s Nordtrack product offering in the Aggregates business area.
‘We have sold more than 50 units to date, about half of them to North America. Currently Metso are developing the range further, and new features are still expected in 2020.’
The new Nordtrack offering and Metso’s iconic Lokotracks complement each other, making Metso a leader in the growing aggregates contractor segment.
The Nordtrack range features two mobile jaw crushers, the Nordtrack J90 and Nordtrack J127, and one impact crusher, the Nordtrack I908S, all of which come with crusher automation.
The Nordtrack J127 is a wide jaw crusher with nominal feed opening of 50in x 29in, making it particularly suitable for sand and gravel operations. The Nordtrack I908S mobile impact crusher is a compact, lightweight recycling crusher that is easy to transport between project sites.
Additionally, the range features six different mobile screens: the Nordtrack S2.11 heavy-duty scalper with large screening area, the two-deck Nordtrack S3.7 and S4.7 screens, the three-deck Nordtrack S3.9 and S4.9 screens and the large, heavy-duty Nordtrack S4.12 screener.
All Nordtrack units are equipped with the latest powerful and fuel-efficient Volvo or Cat engines that meet the latest fuel restrictions, as well as power take offs (PTOs) which allow multiple units to be connected together.
The machines also feature remote tracking controllers and extra remote controller as standard or as an option for feeder operations.
