McCloskey to Use Volvo Penta Engines

McCloskey International will install Volvo Penta D8, D11 and D13 engines in its range of mobile jaw, cone and impactor crushers, and the Volvo Penta D5 engine will be installed in mobile screeners and trommels.

During the past two years, McCloskey worked closely with Volvo Penta, holding regular meetings and keeping in constant contact not only with Volvo sales managers and engineers but also a business development manager.

“That, for us, was one of Volvo Penta’s key selling points,” says John O’Neill, vice president of sales and marketing for McCloskey. “We work closely with our customers in the research and development stages of all our products, and Volvo Penta showed the same commitment to listening to our requirements and delivering the right solution.”

Volvo Penta’s team of engineers also worked closely with McCloskey’s engineering department, tailoring an engine package to fit McCloskey’s unique needs. The supplier also customized its engine assemblies — which include heavy-duty cooling packages — for a perfect fit.

To further demonstrate its versatility and dedication to its customers, Volvo Penta mounted a skid to the bottom of the engine and heavy-duty cooling package so that the engine would slip right into the machine.

“Being attuned to our needs is a key requirement for our partners,” O’Neill says. “Volvo Penta made sure the engines were perfectly suited to working in some of the harshest conditions worldwide, from the Arctic Circle to the heat of the outback in Australia.”
