Based in Hawke’s Bay, Awakeri Drainage is a family-owned business and specialises in drainage, landscaping, earthworks, and aggregate supply services.

The ST2.3 mobile screens will be used on job sites and used for all materials such as rock, soil, mulch, and recycling. The company also has a Lokotrack LT96 jaw, a Nordtrack I908S impactor, and an IMS SW348 screen, all supplied from MIMICO.

Operations manager, Jarvis Bishop, is pleased with the output and reliability of the ST2.3 and described the machine as heavily operator focused. "It doesn’t compare to any other machine I’ve used before," he says.

Jarvis is a third generation Bishop, and the family has more than 50 years’ experience in the industry. He also noted how the ST2.3 is engineered for multi-use and can be used to screen and scalp blasted rock, sand and gravel, recycled concrete, and top soil.

"This makes it ideal for the production of construction and landscaping materials," he says.
In addition, Graham, one of Awakeri Drainage’s operators, who has worked in the Western Australian mines using other equipment, described the Metso: Outotec machines as efficient and much easier to use.

Gath Taylor, MIMICO’s crushing and screening business manager, says, "The Metso Lokotrack ST2.3 is proving to be a popular model with Awakeri Drainage, who are now commissioning their second unit.

The versatility of this machine as well as customer-friendly features has made this unit an instant success in the New Zealand market." The Metso Lokotrack ST range of track-mounted screening plants provides multiple options, depending on produced material, production volume, site characteristics, and location.

Lokotrack screens are customisable and fit for many different needs and can also be tailored or modified later if production requirements change. The Lokotrack ST2.3 is the newest multi-use scalping screen in the ST range. ST2.3 is the most compact mobile screen for primary scalping, its manufacturer says.

With its aggressive stroke (up to 13mm), wide screen (1.5 metres), and adjustable screen angle, it’s ideal for general contractors with various materials to process such as topsoil, compost, recycled materials, crushed rock, sand, and gravel.
