Anaconda has showcased its first venture into the mobile crushing sector, the 26 tonne J960 ECO jaw crusher with a maximum throughput of 150 tonne/hr, at the recent Hillhead show. The new machine has a 0.9 x 0.6 m (3 x 2 ft) jaw opening, a dirt belt, magnet and dual power as standard. The feeder has a grizzly section to remove dirt and a diverter chute that can either remove the dirt completely from the dirt belt or transfer it to the main discharge belt and mix it with the crushed product. Power comes from a 100 kVA Fogo F1100 and an Iveco diesel delivering 87 kW (117 hp). The company claims a fuel consumption of 6 to 8 litre (1.3 to 1.8 gallon) per hour for the latter.
The J960 features a discharge height of 2.8 m (9.2 ft), a ground clearance of 0.25 m (8 inch) and a feed height of 3.3 m (10.9 ft). When configured for transport, it is 11.4 m long (37.4 ft), 3.3 m (10.8 ft) high and 2.5 m (8.2 ft) wide.
