Mobile crushers

Track-mounted crushing plants

Mobile crushers are track-mounted rock crushing machines that are easily movable on and between production sites. They are widely used in aggregates production, recycling applications, and in mining operations. Mobile crushers can replace stationary crushing systems, which reduces the need for hauling and thus cuts operational costs.

Versatility

Can be tailored to fit for any application. Durable wear parts and optimized cavity design enable higher capacity and uptime.

Reliability

More than a century of experience in designing, engineering and manufacturing crushers. Persistent quality testing. Premium-quality components.

Energy-efficient and better for environment

Advanced engine, hydraulics and power transmission. Better dust and noise reduction. Easy transportation. Less hauling required.

Safe and easy to use and maintain

One button process start-and-stop. Real-time diagnostics and easy process optimization. All main languages available. Industry-leading service network.

Mobile crushers reduce hauling costs and increase productivity

Mobile crushers are often referred to as ‘mobile crushing plants’. They are track-mounted crushing machines which, thanks to their mobility, can maximise productivity and reduce operating costs – while increasing safety and reducing environmental impact.

The concept of mobile and semi-mobile crushers has been around for a long time, but for years many machines were very heavy and moving them required thoughtful planning. As result, the crushers that were supposed to be mobile were seldom relocated and tended stay put in permanent facilities.

Nowadays, the weight of mobile crushers has decreased considerably, and crushing as well as mobility properties improved notably. Mobility is not substitute for effective crushing anymore, and tracked mobile crushers meet the same basic criteria as stationary plants. The ability to crush also the largest lumps to the desired cubicity at the desired rate are all ‘must-have’ rather than ‘nice-to-have’ attributes.

The basic components of mobile crushers are almost the same as for stationary ones, but with the added advantage of complete mobility – even up slopes as steep as 1:10 incline.

Lokotrack® mobile crushers

Metso’s mobile crushing equipment is better known as Lokotrack® mobile crushers, often utilized in aggregates production in quarries and construction sites, recycling applications, as well as in mining operations. Lokotrack® mobile crushers can be built with two, three or even four different crushing and screening stages.

The wide range of mobile crushing equipment consists of Lokotrack® mobile cone crushers, Lokotrack® mobile impact crushers, and Lokotrack® mobile jaw crushers.

Mobile cone crushers

Lokotrack® mobile cone crushers are traditionally used as secondary, tertiary, and quaternary crushers. However, if the grain size of the processed material is small enough by nature, then they can also operate at the first stage of the crushing process.

Mobile impact crushers

Lokotrack® mobile impact crushers are wide-ranging crushing machines that fall into two distinctive categories according to the crushing technology they use.

Mobile HSI crushers have a horizontal impact crushing unit and they are used as primary, secondary, or tertiary crushers. Mobile VSI crushers, in turn, are equipped with vertical shaft impact crushing unit, and they are extremely efficient in the last stage of the crushing process, producing precisely shaped cubical end products.  

Mobile jaw crushers

Popular Lokotrack® mobile jaw crushers are generally utilized as primary crushers that reduce the material to smaller sized for further processing.
