The new vibrating grizzly feeder in Komatsu’s BR580JG-1 mobile jaw crusher moves material elliptically to effectively separate and feed it evenly into the new KCJ4430 jaw, which features a load-presetting semiautomatic feeder. Komatsu says the two systems “substantially increased the crushers output.” The company also says that even with routine wear on both plates, adjusting the opening of the automatic discharge system’s port is a one-touch operation. The HydrauMind hydraulically driven BR580JG-1 is powered by a 345-horsepower Komatsu SAA6D125E-5 Tier-3-certified engine and weighs 108,000 to 112,440 pounds.
