The Powerscreen Trakpactor 290 and 290SR impact crushers — both in stock in New Zealand — are designed to perform in the most challenging of applications, such as construction and demolition, asphalt, concrete, and rock.

The compact design enables operations in small landing spaces and it can be easily transported from site to site. The integrated system ensures the required product specification is achieved with oversize material either being recirculated back to the crusher or stockpiled.

"The Trakpactor 290 has telemetric functionality, which allows satellite information such as fuel usage, hours crushed, hours idle, tracking hours and more to be sent to mobile devices," says Stevens Group sales director Lincoln Rayner.
