Trio of new models from Barford Equipment
UK-based manufacturer launches three new machines as international distributor network expands
BARFORD Equipment, the UK-based manufacturers of tracked, mobile and stationary screens, wheeled and tracked conveyors, and trailers, have announced the launch of three new high-specification equipment models – the TR8048 track-mounted stockpile conveyor, the BF7042 tracked-mounted bin feeder and the SM312 single-axle mobile double-deck screen.
The TR8048 (pictured) has an 80ft reach and a 48in wide belt. It also includes a twin-drive discharge belt complete with hydraulic slew hubs and a Cat 2.2 turbo engine with hydraulic oil cooler and remote-control movement.
The BF7042 has a 42in wide belt and an extended reach of 70ft. Other features include a twin-drive discharge belt complete with hydraulic slew hubs and a Cat 4.4 elect automation control movement. It also ships with a ‘mulch’ option that has an agitator attachment to break up material before it goes on to the belt, and there is a larger BF7048 Mulch variant.
The SM312 is a single-axle mobile 12ft x 4ft (3m x 1.29m) double-deck screen complete with double-drive pump to suit auxiliary, extended folding fines conveyors and incorporates a CAT 2.2 37kW engine and removable tow bar.
Earlier this year Barford successfully entered the US market with the launch of the SR-124 and the S-104, two new track-mounted screeners designed to meet local demand. Both were previewed at the Spring Sale in Kissimmee, Florida, in February co-ordinated by auctioneers Yoder & Frey.
Barford say this proved to be the perfect event to develop brand awareness and as a direct result they have signed up a number of new Barford Equipment distributors, with their ultimate aim being to have one in each US state.
The company’s European network is also undergoing rapid expansion with new distributors being signed up in several key EU markets and others still being sought, particularly those with direct mining, aggregate, recycling and construction sector knowledge and experience.
Further afield, several new Barford Equipment distributors have also been signed up in in Australia to cover both Perth and Sydney.
