The Anaconda DF410 tracked screen was arranged to simulate a working job site with a Hyundai HX160L excavator to feed the screen.
Highway Equipment Company held a crushing and screening open house event at its Canton branch earlier this summer to showcase the dealership's new line of Anaconda screens and material handling equipment. The dealership was recently named the authorized dealer of Anaconda in Ohio and Pennsylvania. According to Al Springer, regional account manager, the event offered an excellent opportunity to introduce its clients in Ohio to the line. Several Anaconda machines were on display at the event, including the DF410 tracked screener, the FTR150 feed loader, the TD620 tracked trommel and a TR Series conveyor. Anaconda Equipment is a manufacturer of highly adaptable screening and stockpiling equipment used in various aggregate industries, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag and recycled concrete.
According to Highway Equipment Company's crushing and screening specialist, Phil Berresford, the distinguishing characteristic of Anaconda machines are their versatility and the fact that they're extremely user friendly. As well as aggregates applications, the machines are popular for use in landscaping operations, land development and a variety of general contractor applications.
Designed for ease of maintenance and service, the TD620 on display on the Highway Equipment Company yard was equipped with its 6 by 20 ft. screen rolled out to demonstrate the machine's hydraulic drum lift out for quick change. The TD620 tracked trommel may be employed in processing materials ranging from compost, wood chips and soil to construction and demolition waste. The unit can be set up within 20 minutes of arrival on the job site and the feeder is equipped with pressure sensors which will stop the feeder until the drum is cleared if overfed. Options include a single deck vibrating grid, remote tipping grid, hopper extensions, radio remote control and flexible drum configurations.
The 410 designation on the DF410 tracked screener on display at the event stands for its 10 by 4 ft. screen box, which offers the longest screen box in the compact screening segment of the market. Available options on the DF410 include a radio remote control, an over-band magnet of oversize conveyor and screen deck options including mesh, bofar bar, finger screens or punch plates.
The FTR150 feed loader at the event was equipped with a vibrating grizzly. The machine has a hopper capacity of 13 cu. yds. and is ideal for a variety of applications including sand and gravel, aggregates, compost and coal. The unit also can be fitted with a hopper flare extension for materials such as compost and mulch. Its 50-ft. stockpiling conveyor with variable speed belt feeder is ideal for loading everything from trucks to barges and may be used as a surge feeder in quarry plants.
Attendees at the event were treated to a catered lunch and had an opportunity to speak one on one with Highway Equipment personnel about Anaconda and other equipment on the yard. Factory representatives from Allied Construction Products also were on hand to greet attendees at the event, including company president Phil Paranic; marketing and logistics coordinator Kelly Desmond; and district manager Rich Steinbrenner.
