Dedicated to service and sustainability, Mobile Screening & Crushing (MSC), along with the Terex EvoQuip Cobra 230 portable impact crusher, have invested in the entire EvoQuip range, including a number of the new models to support their fast-growing portfolio of equipment.

The 100th installation of Cobra 230 comes just a few years after a successful market launch in 2017 by Terex EvoQuip. The installations of the impactor span the globe, serving customers of varied industries and applications, construction and demolition, asphalt recycling, quarrying or contract crushing," says Andy Meikle MSC director.

"As a family business, we’ve had an ongoing highly valued relationship with EvoQuip. These ‘compact with impact’ machines have been a screening and crushing preference in New Zealand, as well as having reliable trusted back-up from the entire EvoQuip team," he says.

Taking delivery of an EvoQuip machine recently is Field Performance Ltd, based in Waikite Valley, Rotorua, central North Island, New Zealand. After 30 years of agricultural contracting, Roger Trent decided to give away the tractor work.

This meant his quarry needed to be more efficient, which led to the decision to invest in a new crusher. It was important to Roger to have service available within one hour of the machine and dealing with a family-operated business, like MSC, added to the attraction.

"Roger decided to upgrade the heavy machinery that he had. He had seen EvoQuip machinery in operation and was very impressed.

Prior to buying, he knew what he was looking for, and a custom machine was ordered specially to suit Roger’s requirements," says Dan Meikle, MSC general manager ‘‘The EvoQuip Cobra 230 impact crusher has managed to surpass our expectations handling the product with ease, turning it into products we’ve been able to reuse," says Roger. 

"MSC goes beyond selling the machine, working with clients to ensure optimum volume and tonnages are achieved."
