A jaw crusher and an impact crusher are new this year from IRock Crushers, which discussed its equipment launches at a Thursday press conference at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014.

IRock’s jaw crusher, the tracked TJ-3046, offers better sizing control because of a hydraulic wedge adjustment, says Bob Nelson, IRock’s general manager. Hydraulic-folding sides are another feature and one that was incorporated to simplify the unit’s transportation.

The company’s new tracked TC-20 impact crusher, meanwhile, features a 15-cu.-yd. fixed hopper that’s paired with a 52-in. x 16-ft. vibrating grizzly feeder with a larger crusher inlet. IRock says the TC-20’s feeder is the longest among tracked crushers in the industry, giving operators the ability to load with a large wheel loader.

Still, IRock says the 98,500-lb. machine is designed with simplified transportation in mind.

“We don’t want it to be a complicated two-piece move,” he says. “This is a one-piece move and it minimizes the transportation costs for a machine in this class.”

IRock also has plans to expand its international sales in the coming years, according to IRock owner Ken Taylor.

“I think our first step would be to be [to expand] in the Western Hemisphere here,” Taylor says. “I’d love to be in Latin America someday.”
