Demolition and recycling: Powerscreen Trakpactor 290SR

The Trakpactor 290SR impact crusher can perform in the most challenging of applications

The Trakpactor 290SR is versatile and easy to use

Powerscreen impact crushers are designed to excel as primary impactors, taking large feed material and reducing it down to a sellable product. Impactors are often used as a
cost-effective alternative to jaw and cone combination plants, as they have a good level of reduction and product shaping for many applications.

Powerscreen’s impactor range can be ideal for shaping applications, including making chips, sand, concrete manufacture, and glass recycling. The range includes both horizontal and vertical impact crushers. Stevens Group is the distributor of Powerscreen throughout New Zealand.

Recirculating integrated system

The integrated system ensures the required product specification is achieved with oversized material either recirculated back to the crusher or stockpiled.

Portable solution

The machine sets up rapidly and is simple to operate. The compact size also provides ease of transportation, making the portable crusher an ideal solution for remote job sites.

Enclosed hopper

Material is fed into a fully enclosed hopper, which eliminates any potential for material spillage down into the engine bay beneath.

Rapid set-up

Designed to be a perfect solution for onsite recycling in urban areas, the Trakpactor 290 is easy to transport from site to site where it can be rapidly set up from ground level. This, along with the intuitive two-button start-up sequence, helps ensure the machine can be crushing in a matter of minutes.
