IROCK Crushers’ Sidewinder series of crushers are designed to screen out a high percentage of the feed material that is already at the required size before reaching the crusher. This minimizes the amount of material that runs through the crusher, increasing production and reducing wear.

The Sidewinder crushers, which feature a closed-circuit design and a four-bar impactor, are capable of producing up to four product sizes — three uniformly sorted and one oversized product. A flop gate within the pant leg chute gives operators the option to either recirculate oversized material for further screening and crushing or divert it to be stockpiled as a 100 percent crushed material.

Sidewinders are ideal for primary use in sand and gravel applications and recycled asphalt operations or for secondary use with materials such as recycled concrete and quarry rock. There are three sizes available, each with a three-deck horizontal screen. With screening areas of 210, 288 and 360 sq. ft. (19.5, 26.7 and 33.4 sq m) respectively, the Sidewinder 15, 20 and 30 can process 400, 600 and 750 tons (363, 544 and 680 t).

The mobile crushers feature IROCK’s rock box, an alternative to discharge chutes found on similar units. The rock box uses a shelf system with abrasion-resistant wear bars that allow crushed material to build up and act as a wear liner to effectively reduce maintenance. In addition, standard catwalks alongside the unit provide full access to each side of the screenbox for ease of maintenance or screen media changes.

IROCK has 24-hour online parts look up and ordering, fast delivery, and live service support until 9 p.m. EST.
