The BC 2500 and BC 3700 bucket crushers process about 80 percent more material due to their hydraulic drive system, the company says.
The BC 2500 fits 24-ton to 33-ton carrier weight classes, and the BC 3700 fits 30-ton to 42-ton carrier weight classes. The bucket crushers, with their drive systems, are meant as an alternative to mobile jaw crushers for cramped worksites. They can process a wide range of materials, including aggregate, asphalt and concrete. The attachments feature components that allow carrier operators to crush as much as 110 tons of material per hour, according to Atlas Copco. The drive system—two hydraulic motors and a timing belt—generates the high torque needed for powering the crushing jaw. The attachments also feature a reverse function to remove blockages by pushing material back through the inlet.
