EvoQuip’s new Cobra 230 impact crusher is allowing its operator to begin crushing minutes after the machine arrives at the jobsite.

Regardless of its application, the company claims the Cobra 230, equipped with a Volvo 275 hp Tier 4 Final engine, will enhance profitability, whether it’s used in constriction, demolition, asphalt recycling, quarrying or contract crushing.

“The Cobra 230 Impact Crusher is a machine that provides class leading productivity, unmatched versatility and excellent fuel efficiency,” said Matt Dickson, product line director for EvoQuip. “The quick set up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for all applications.”

The Cobra 230 is equipped with the user-friendly hydraulic assist, which allows the operator to adjust the crusher setting without the use of any tools.

When in use, the Cobra 230 several key design features ensure an optimal material flow during the crushing process.  As material moves from the feeder through the impactor onto the product belt, each section becomes wider ensuring an unrestricted flow.  As well, under crusher clearance, the short distance from the crusher discharge to the magnet and the ability to lower the product conveyor while running assist the crushing process.

To improve fuel efficiency, the machine uses a high performing direct drive system to power the impact crusher alongside two independent hydraulic controlled aprons that optimize the material throughput.

Measuring 30 ft., 7 in. long and 8 feet wide, the compact footprint makes the Cobra 230 easy to transport and also improves usability in urban areas.

Serviceability was a focus throughout design and development of the Cobra 230. With ground level access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refueling points, it ensures maintenance is easy for the operator. This is further enhanced with features such as the hinged radiator pack and hinged diesel tank.

In Ireland, J&V Construction is testing the effectiveness of the new crusher.

“The EvoQuip Cobra 230 has managed to surpass our expectations, handling a mix of difficult rock and heavy duty recycled concrete with ease, and turning it into products we have been able to reuse on our construction sites,” said Gerd McCann, director of J&V Construction.
