Anaconda

Highway Equipment Company held a crushing and screening open house event at its Canton branch earlier this summer to showcase the dealership's new line of Anaconda screens and material handling equipment. The dealership was recently named the authorized dealer of Anaconda in Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Anaconda Equipment International manufactures and exports machinery for use primarily in the mining, quarrying and waste recycling industries. Anaconda’s current range of equipment includes conventional screening units, scalpers, trommel screens and stacking conveyors.

Anaconda Equipment International entered the U.S. market four years ago with conveyors for the aggregate markets, most notably portable tracked conveyors along with traditional wheeled conveying systems. Today, the product line has been expanded to include portable tracked screening plants and, soon, will include a trommel screen.

Cavaliere Onsite Recycling’s mid-sized Rubble Master portable, tracked impact crushers have enabled the company to grow an onsite recycling business that can handle processing concrete, asphalt and stone in tight spots. DJ Cavaliere, operations manager, typically used a three-man crew at these portable recycling spreads: One man on the ground keeps the Rubble Master unit running at its highest efficiency, and who is constantly checking for any safety concerns.

Today, when the cost that an aggregate producer or recycler can demand for his materials is not going up, controlling production costs are more important than ever before and one of the biggest costs incurred is labor and earthmoving equipment. Anaconda Conveyors USA is promoting portable tracked conveyors for the aggregate, recycling, demolition and material handling industries from the manufacturer, Anaconda Equipment, headquartered in Ireland.

Premier Equipment President Eamon McMahon and Gordon Terry, general manager of Anaconda Conveyors USA, have entered into an agreement for Premier Equipment to represent the Anaconda line of conveying equipment in the New England states. Anaconda’s distinction in the crushing and screening industry is its portable tracked conveyors.

COR Equipment Sales, Stamford, Conn., is now an authorized dealer for Anaconda Conveyors USA in New England and New York. “We became a dealer because we were looking for a quality piece of equipment that complements our line of Rubble Master compact recyclers.
