Barford Equipment, the UK based manufacturer of track, mobile and stationary screens, wheeled and tracked conveyors plus trailers, has just announced three new equipment models meeting demand, it says, “from global customers for high specification and competitively prices solutions.”Stephen Murphy, Distribution Manager for the Barford product range notes “mining markets have long appreciated the equipment available under the Barford banner and over recent months we have significantly expanded both the range of machines on offer as well as the global distributor base from which they can be sourced. Barford is a well-known brand in the UK and across Europe, having built an enviable reputation and possessing a long and illustrious history, but it was relatively unknown in the US market; but that’s changing.”The new Barford models being introduced comprise the TR8048 track-mounted stockpile conveyor; the BF7042 tracked mounted bin feeder; and the SM312, a single-axle mobile double-deck screen.The TR8048 track-mounted stockpile conveyor has a reach of over 24 m and a 1,220 mm wide belt. It also includes a twin-drive discharge belt complete with hydraulic slew hubs and a Cat 2.2 turbo engine with hydraulic oil cooler and a remote control movement.The BF7042 bin feeder has a 1,066 mm wide belt and an extended reach of 21 m. Other features include a twin-drive discharge belt complete with hydraulic slew hubs and a Cat 4.4 elect automation control movement. It also ships with a ‘Mulch’ option that has an agitator attachment to break up material before it goes onto the belt) and there is a larger BF7048 Mulch variant.SM312 is a single-axle mobile 3-m x 1.29-m) double deck screen complete with double drive pump to suit auxiliary, extended folding fines conveyors and incorporates a CAT 2.2 37kw engine and removable tow bar.Earlier this year Barford successfully entered the US market, launching the SR-124 and the S-104, two new track mounted screeners, to meet local demand. Both were previewed at the Spring Sale in Kissimmee, Florida in February coordinated by top auctioneers Yoder & Frey and proved to be the perfect event to develop brand awareness amongst prospective distributor representatives and buyers. As a direct result it has signed up a number of Barford Equipment distributers and the objective is to have one in each US state.Further afield several new distributors have also been signed up in in Australia to cover both Perth and Sydney. The European network is also undergoing expansion with new distributors being signed up in several of the key EU markets but others are still being actively sort particularly those with direct mining, aggregate, recycling and construction sector knowledge and experience.The two robust and refined Barford screeners launched earlier this year comprise: the SR-124 (pictured) a tracked three way split heavy duty screener, with a 12 x 4 screen box that fits into a 40 ft HC container; and the S-104 a tracked three way split inclined screener with a 10 x 4 screen box that again fits into a 40 ft HC container – key features of the Barford range which have been incorporated through design to realisation.The SR-124 is built around a Caterpillar power unit while the engine on the S-104 is produced by renowned British manufacturer JCB but is also available with a Deutz engine.In addition to the two tracked screeners being launched, Barford Equipment also manufacturers a range of straight and radial tracked and wheeled stockpile conveyors. Other products include: the D16, a 16 t, twin-axle dump trailer; The R15 15 t twin-axle rock trailer; and the L22, a 19 t, 22 ft long chassis twin axle low loader. There is also a range of screen boxes, the US40 with its 3.75 m2 total screening area being the most popular. Other models provide 1.8 m2 or a 6.5 m2 screening areas.
