McCloskey has taken the next big step in its industry leading designs by adding the groundbreaking new All-Terrain Stackers to its line-up. Blending the benefits of onsite track mobility with the high productivity of a radial conveyor, the All-Terrain Stackers allow the conveyor to switch from track mode to radial in seconds.
Designed for use in any terrain, the stackers, ranging from 60’ to 150’, are easily moved site to site without the need to remove the wheels for transport. Built-in levelling indicators allow operators to position the stacker regardless of the ground evenness, with independent hydraulic jack legs to stabilize once in place.
Tracked radial stackers to date offered in the market have been focused on a track bogie under the hopper. While this allows mobility, it also creates an obstacle for the stacker during operation with buildup and spillage of material blocking the tracks. Additionally, the configuration raises the height of the stacker such that additional transfer conveyors are often required. The McCloskey design eliminates the need for any additional equipment, delivering a clean radius without material buildup. The stackers feature a unique rear counterweight design developed to stabilize the pivot point of the radial and maintain its position during operation, as well as ensure enhanced safety.
The McCloskey All-Terrain Stackers standard features include:
Tires that have aggressive-tread patterns for
more traction in tough terrain
· Hydraulic raise/lower arm allows switch from track to radial mode in seconds
· Level gauge to allow for operation on uneven ground
· Internal wheel drive motors allow radial travel
· Patented counterweight design delivers enhanced stability and safety in operation.
McCloskey radial track stackers are more easily transported than other products on the market, and the track bogie features radial rubber tires with a planetary gear box to drive the wheels. This limits them to being pit portable, as road transport becomes difficult. The McCloskey design allows for the wheels to be folded for transport, delivering true portability for operators moving from site to site.
