EvoQuip, A Terex brand in Dungannon, Ireland, has launched its Bison 280 jaw crusher. The crusher can be used in construction and demolition, asphalt recycling, quarrying or contract crushing applications.

The Bison 280 has been working in a granite site at Peter O’Donnell & Sons Quarry in Ireland. “The productivity and performance of the EvoQuip Bison 280 really has surpassed our expectations,” Peter O’Donnell, managing director, says. “While the machine itself is very compact it is definitely not a lightweight machine as it consistently produced a quality product at a high throughput and low cost per ton in our quarry”.

The compact footprint of the Bison 280 easy to transport and also makes it an ideal machine for working in urban areas, EvoQuip says. The operator can also adjust the crusher setting without the need for any tools using the hydraulic jaw adjustment system.

“The Bison 280 jaw crusher is a machine that offers versatility with supreme durability while also providing our customers with excellent productivity and fuel efficiency,” Matt Dickson, EvoQuip product line director, says. “The quick set up times, simple intuitive operation and ease of transport makes this machine an ideal solution for all applications.”

The Bison can be used on a multitude of natural stone applications including granite, river gravel and basalt. The Bison can also be used on various recycling applications including construction and demolition debris, recycled concrete and reclaimed railway sleepers. 

It has a direct drive system to power the jaw crusher that, along with the jaw adjustment, is designed to optimize the material throughput and reduction while ensuring the best fuel efficiency.

Key features of the Bison include a vibrating feeder designed to regulate the flow of material into the crusher based on the engine load and under crusher clearance and tunneling designed for an unrestricted flow of material even in the harshest of recycling applications.

EvoQuip machines can come directly to a site to crush and screen the debris from demolition projects. EvoQuip equipment can also be used to demolish old farm buildings and process material for lanes, driveways or drainage projects.
