Keestrack R5 in action

07 November 2016

The R5 is a versatile, mobile 50 tonne track-mounted impact crusher that features a secondary screen unit for exceptional levels of efficiency. No wonder Danish construction company Kim Vind has used the R5 as part of their recycling process since the summer of 2015.

Recycling represents over 20% of Kim Vind’s business. To meet this growing need they invested in Keestrack’s new R5 machine. The order was placed in February, with Keestrack customising the machine to Kim Vind’s exact requirements before delivery in May.

In the first five months of use the new R5 clocked up over 500 hours of successful operation, processing more than 100,000 tonnes of highly varied material. In one-man-operation mode the machine reliably achieves production rates of between 200 and 260 t/h (input: 0/700; final grain size: 0/25, 0/40), while load-sensing hydraulics enable fuel savings of up to 25%, with average fuel consumption of around 50 l/h. The result is flexible mobility that really pays off. 

“Keestrack’s crusher and secondary screen unit has enabled us to expand our range of services and our customer base. We were convinced by the machine’s short set-up times and its high level of mobility on difficult terrain.”
