THE METSO LOKOTRACK LT106 – BUILT TO DELIVER GROUNDBREAKING EXCELLENCE

     Combining 30 years of experience in mobile crushing equipment with 21st century materials and design, the Lokotrack LT106 mobile jaw crushing plant's introduction is a ‘giant leap forward in the mobile crushing industry’ – according to Metso distributor in Ireland, McHale Plant Sales of Birdhill and Rathcoole.

     Billed as the ‘new generation of proven performance’, the Finnish-made LT106 is the improved successor to the world-renowned C106 jaw crusher – regarded by many as the industry benchmark in mobile crushing, with a proven track record in the toughest of applications. 

METSO LOKOTRACK LT106

Process overview

A primary crusher for recycling or rock-based material, the LT106, with a 1,060 x 700 mm (42” x 28”) feed opening, can be used as a first unit in a multistage crushing process or as a stand-alone unit in reducing applications. After material is fed on to its feeder by an excavator or wheel loader, the mobile plant’s two stage scalping section removes the fine substance which can then be guided to its main conveyor or side conveyor. Output material size is controlled by the crusher settings, whilst the crusher is hydraulically driven to ensure trouble free operation.

 Setting standards in mobility

The LT106’s chassis design, with good clearance on both ends, enables safe and easy loading onto a trailer. Compact dimensions and agility on tracks mean lower transport costs between and within crushing sites. Its feed hopper sides, with a patented and safe hydraulic securing system and radial side conveyor ensure the unit is ready for crushing or transport within minutes.

 Proven performance

New features, including a radial side conveyor, high inertia flywheels and Metso’s IC700 automation system that utilises an ultrasonic material level sensor, are said to offer the best capacity and cost efficiency in the 40-tonne class. The new fuel-efficient CAT9.3 Tier4, 224 kW (300 hp) engine with hydraulic drive ensures trouble-free operation and enables the direction of the crusher to be changed in the event of a blockage.

 A new engine layout and flywheel composite covers, together with spacious service platforms and excellent accessibility make daily operations safe and easy. Flexibility can be added with additional features such as a screen module and long main conveyor.

 Flexible and fuel-efficient

Active setting control, screen module, Metso hammer and a wide range of other options give the Lokotrack LT106 unmatched process flexibility and the capability to work in the most demanding aggregate and recycling processes. A new hydraulic system, coupled with an environmentally friendly, low-emission engine means average fuel consumption – without compromising process flexibility, safety or the durability of the hydraulic drive – is 17–22 liters.

     Commenting, McHale Plant Sales director Tim Shanahan says the LT106 is a machine ‘built to deliver groundbreaking excellence’. “Its introduction takes production capacity to a whole new level, cutting operating costs and generating the highest customer value possible,” he adds.
