May 13, 2014

May 6, 2014 ““ COMMERCE CITY, Colo. ““ Aggregate and recycling professionals saw new crushing and screening equipment in action at Pine Bush Equipment’s Holmes, N.Y., location April 26. The event introduced the PC2 crusher and HS1 screen to Pine Bush customers and served as a key step in the training process for the dealership’s sales force.

“Pine Bush Equipment has been proud to represent products within the Atlas Copco family for years, so it was only natural we would look to feature a reliable crusher line,” said Holly Bodnar, president, PBE Group.

Pine Bush Equipment specialist Dave Ewald said the Powercrusher PC2 is a great fit for either rental or purchase, in both recycling and small job aggregate work. “The PC2 and HS1 have a small footprint,” he said, “and that is important to a lot of customers who have sites where other screens might not fit.”

The Powercrusher PC2 jaw crusher features a unique “Quattro Movement” that causes a figure-8 motion in the moving jaw, increasing feed capacity and producing a post-crush at the crusher outlet. The initial swing-stroke movement of the jaw gives 100 percent crushing across the entire surface of the jaw plate. The PC2 material inlet is an opening 40 by 28 inches wide, with a capacity of 330 tons per hour.

As a supplement to the Powercrusher, the single-deck HS1 screener enables customers to produce two salable products. The screen box has large clearances to help eliminate blockages even when the crusher is producing a high volume of output. The re-circulating conveyor option deposits oversize materials directly back into the hopper of the crusher.

Ewald said that the HS1 screen can provide both fines for pre-pavement work and also aggregates for drainage or fill.

Eric Amberson, the Powercrusher product line manager in the U.S., agreed that the versatility of the equipment is a key feature. “The screen offers the advantage of being able to produce two products from one machine,” he said. “The PC2 can also create its own spec product out of the end of the jaw when the screen is not attached.”

Founded in 1956, Pine Bush Equipment has evolved over the years to become one of the leading construction equipment providers in the region. With locations in Pine Bush and Holmes, N.Y., and Newington, Conn., Pine Bush serves 10 counties in southern New York, the state of Connecticut, Pike County, Pennsylvania and Sussex County, New Jersey.
