Cobra set to make an impact

November 2017

Evoquip, part of Terex Corporation, has launched a new addition to its impact crushing range, the Cobra 230, extending its comprehensive portfolio of products to meet the demands of the compact crushing and screening markets.

The machine is said to enhance profitability in a wide range of applications, whether construction and demolition, asphalt recycling, quarrying or contract crushing.

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

He says the Cobra 230 has been on test with J & V Construction in Ireland. Commenting on the machine, Gerd McCann, J & V Construction director, says: “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.”

There are a number of key design features in the Cobra 230 that ensure an optimal material flow through the crushing process. As material moves from the feeder through the impactor onto the product belt, each section becomes wider ensuring an unrestricted flow. The excellent under-crusher clearance, the short distance from the crusher discharge to the magnet and the ability to lower the product conveyor while running make the Cobra 230 the ideal machine in all applications, Dickson says.

The crusher is powered by an extremely fuel-efficient and high-performing direct drive system. This, along with the two independent hydraulic-controlled aprons, allows the operator to optimise the material throughput and reduction whilst ensuring the best fuel efficiency.

The compact size makes the Cobra 230 easy to transport and also an ideal machine for working in urban areas. Its rapid set-up time and intuitive control system enables the operator to start crushing minutes after unloading the machine from the lorry. The operator can also adjust the crusher setting easily without the need for any tools using the user-friendly hydraulic assist that is standard on the machine.

Easy serviceability is another key feature of the Cobra 230 with ground level access to the engine, hydraulics, service and refueling points.
