Nordtrack I908S: robust mobile crusher

Metso’s Nordtrack I908S, a mobile track-mounted horizontal shaft impact crusher, is the ideal tool for short-term contracting jobs or for someone starting their own crushing and screening operation.

It’s a robust mobile crusher, designed to work in a range of impact-crushing applications, from asphalt recycling to concrete demolition and general rock-crushing applications.

"The Nordtrack I908S provides a powerful and versatile impact crusher and screen plant in an easily transportable 27.5-tonne package," explains Garth Taylor, crushing and screening business manager at MIMICO, Metso’s New Zealand distributor.

Ideal for recycling, general contracting, and small quarry operations

"Its versatility stems from an ability to adapt to different applications and project requirements while maintaining ease of use and efficient operation. Quick set-up time and compact dimensions make this unit ideal for recycling, general contracting, and small quarry operations."

The Nordtrack I908S features a fuel-efficient Volvo D8 188kW engine, a standard water spray system for dust suppression, a simple hydraulic setting adjustment using shims, an adjustable impactor curtain to allow adjustment from primary to secondary applications, a 180-degree radial recirculating conveyor and overband magnet, and wind shifter for recycling applications.

Simple and intuitive

Transportation and set-up are easy, allowing operators to move the machine effortlessly around the site with the included radio remote control.

Operating the I908S is simple with intuitive controls and a user-friendly interface. Basic hydraulic lever control of ancillary circuits and an automation system for engine and crusher functions allow users to quickly maximise productivity.

The crusher’s adjustable rotor speed and flexible configuration make it ideal for processing a variety of materials and end products. Whether fine aggregates for concrete and asphalt production or road base materials, the Nordtrack I908S delivers with precision.

Its integrated, pre-screen system efficiently removes fines and ensures that only the right-sized material reaches the crusher, boosting overall efficiency and reducing wear
and tear.

Advanced engine technology minimises fuel consumption without compromising performance, which leads to cost savings in the long run. Coupled with low emissions and noise levels, the I908S is an environmentally friendly choice that meets regulatory standards.

Ideal for NZ contractors

Well suited to the New Zealand market, Nordtrack I908S units have since been purchased by multi-disciplined contracting companies across the country, due to its flexibility, adaptability, and affordability.

The Nordtrack I908S crusher made its New Zealand debut in early 2020 when the first unit was delivered to Hastings-based company, Awakeri Drainage.

Alongside a selection of drainage, earthworks, and related services, Awakeri Drainage’s Nordtrack I908S recycles concrete and crushes a full range of building and construction aggregates. The versatility and adaptability of their crusher is key to the business outcomes.

The Nordtrack range

The I908S is part of the wider Nordtrack range of mobile crushers, screens, and stacking conveyors, which are purpose-designed for asphalt recycling, concrete demolition, small-scale aggregate production, and screening of organic materials, such as topsoil and wood.

Units come in standard configurations for asphalt recycling, separating organic materials, and aggregate production, with a choice of options designed to cater to the toughest of applications.
