Case Study Evoquip COLT 1600



The high capacity, versatile heavy-duty Colt 1600 scalper is designed to work in primary and secondary screening applications such as quarry and mining, construction demolition waste, sand, gravel, compost, topsoil and coal.
The plant has the capacity to process at a rate of up to 600 tonnes per hour and can be fed either by a tracked mobile crusher, shovel or an excavator.
The machine is available with dual power technology giving flexibility to be powered by an external power supply or the standard on-board engine.

The Problem:

The client needed a mobile screening solution to be able to move the unit between 3 different locations within the quarry. Their existing fixed structure is
getting old and transport between the pits andprocessing plant was costly.     

The Solution:

MPS supplied a Colt 1600, which is versatile enough to make several products, that our customers need. A quick mesh change is possible to produce different
products when the need arises. As the unit was dispatched from our Lonsdale SA depot this saved all involved time and cost of interstate transport. This
machine, like all our units in SA, will be supported locally with parts. The various mesh was supplied to ensure maximum versatility of the machine in its new


As this is the client’s first mobile unit it has added versatility and increased the
capacity of their operations.
