Sandvik machines are key to success for recycling contractor
BP Mitchell take delivery of three crushers and two screens from Sandvik
BP Mitchell Ltd was started by Brendan Mitchell as a single owner-driver, but success soon saw the company develop into a large multi-faceted organization. Over the years the company acquired a vast fleet of vehicles encompassing a variety of plant to service virtually every conceivable need for construction sites.
A key tool used in this successful company has been the Sandvik QJ340 tracked jaw crusher. The power and versatility of the machine has proved its worth on numerous projects, so much so that Brendan Mitchell recently acquired his fifth QJ340.
Compact and mobile, the QJ340 is powered by a C-9 engine that meets all known emissions standards, and boasts a large feed opening with high crushing speed that delivers high outputs together with excellent product size reduction for maximum productivity. Durability and reliability are ensured by a reverse crushing action capability to relieve blockages, and by an automatic lubrication system.
The Sandvik QJ340 has proved its worth for BP Mitchell as their mobile crushing solution with diverse materials such as granite, slate and limestone in quarry applications, or for crushing bricks, concrete blocks, rebar concrete and asphalt in a demolition or recycling environment all being easily catered for. Job versatility is assured by a comprehensive range of optional extras that allow the QJ340 to be modified to match precisely the demands of any specific application. Brendan has been so impressed with his fleet of QJ340’s that in September he added three more to his fleet, together with a QE340 and a QE140 scalper/screener.
