McCloskey International, Peterborough, Ontario, debuted its V80 Vertical Shaft Impactor to North America at The World of Asphalt/AGG1 show in San Antonio, March 19-21, 2013.

McClosey says that its V80 (VSI) has been designed to be one of the most efficient vertical shaft impactors on the market for producing high-specification sealing aggregates, a high proportion of fines required for main roads/road base, or manufactured sand. The heavy duty track mounted VSI features a host of user-friendly features, according to the company, and reflects McCloskey’s commitment to reliable and durable equipment.

The first North American dealer to stock the V80 will be McCourt and Sons of LaGrange, Texas. “We have had enormous success with the McCloskey crusher lines, including the jaw, cone and impactors,” says Paul McCourt, owner and president of McCourt and Sons Equipment Inc. “Carrying the VSI product will allow us to offer even more options to our customers to help them grow their business – no matter what the application.”

The V80 has a CEMCO Turbo T-80 VSI crusher and a powerful 430 Hp C13 CAT engine. The I-beam plate-fabricated-chassis construction lends itself to heavy duty applications, along with its long-wearing Hardox hopper sides, which adds to the equipment’s durability and strength.

The V80’s feed rate is controlled via control panel, remote control or fully automatic regulation via feedback from the VSI. The main conveyor has a large stockpile capacity as a result of the standard extended 42-inch conveyor, and the large access between crusher discharge and the main conveyor feedboot. The V80 also features an integrated hopper with folding rear door.

Ease of maintenance is a strong advantage for the V80, according to the company. The control panel is user-friendly and has machine diagnostics that can reduce downtime for maintenance. The open chassis design adds to the ease of maintaining the V80, as well as the hydraulic raise/lower lid on the crushing chamber.

With the advantage of McCloskey’s integrated and highly efficient hydraulics, better fuel economy is realized. Folding hoppers and conveyors allow for a fast setup time, says the company. The impactor also has a number of other options, including a roll-in bogie system, main conveyor variable speed control, interlock systems, hopper extensions and a metal detector to protect the VSI along with robust standard safety features.
