New Terex Evoquip Colt 1000

Terex Evoquip has recently added the new Colt 1000 to their range of screening equipment

Building upon the success of the Colt 600 and Colt 800, the Colt 1000 is the largest screen in the portfolio, and depending on the application, capable of processing up to 360tph.

Recently tested by Rapid Aggregates in the UK, managing director Trevor Armitage commented: "I am impressed by the performance of the Colt 1000, a powerful machine for such a small package. There is nothing it can’t cope with and the output is comparable to larger machines. The screen box is very aggressive and excellent at clearing both store and wet soil material."


The highly adaptable machine incorporates an aggressive double deck screen of 3.96m (13 inches) x 1.22m (4 inches). The variable screening angle and screen media options enable the machine to operate in both heavy-duty scalping and precision screening applications and to manage even the most difficult of materials. In addition, the full 13 feet bottom deck ensures optimal classification in fine screening applications.

The Colt 1000 includes a compact footprint maintaining the ethos of the range. Standard configuration discharges the fines product to the right side of the plant, with the mid-grade on the left. Both conveyors can be ordered reversed as an option, with the ability to place both conveyors on the same side of the unit once the Colt 1000 reaches the field. Flexibility is further enhanced with two-way spilt conversion by easily relocating the tail conveyor to collect both top and bottom deck pieces.

According to the manufacturer, the Colt 1000 achieves excellent conveyor discharge heights, and the feeder system has class-leading capacity through the folding hopper extensions. The 1000mm wide feed conveyor complements the screen width to ensure maximum screen area is managed from the feed point.

The Colt 1000 can be fitted with the T- Link telemetry system, which provides the customer with real-time information on the performance of their machine.

The first unit ordered by Mobile Screening & Crushing arrives in Auckland this November and is currently available for purchase, lease, or long-term hire. Expressions of interest welcome.
