The LT120 jaw plant was received by Andres Erdarbeiten GmbH, a family-owned crushing, screening and recycling contractor. Globally, Metso said it has sold over 7,000 Lokotracks.

“Metso’s German customers were interested in the mobile, track-mounted Lokotrack crushing plant concept right away after the commercial production started in the Tampere works, Finland in 1985,” said Hugo van Benthem, Metso’s distribution manager in Germany.

“In Germany, customers noticed quickly that the track-mounted units are more economical while the crusher could be moved to the rocks.”

The first Lokotrack deliveries to Germany in late 1980s often included two-stage plants for crushing and screening in hard rock quarries. A typical combination was a tracked LT100 jaw and LT1100 cone plant. German company ABAG purchased these units over 30 years ago, and Metso said the firm is still running the same crushers, illustrating the longevity of the Lokotrack range.

“Today, Metso’s Lokotracks used in Germany cover well all customer segments, from light, easy-to-transport contracting and recycling plants to sturdy, high-capacity mobile quarrying crushers,” explained Joachim Höft, Metso’s sales manager in Germany. “Our German customers also like Metso’s in-the-pit primary crushing concept with jaw plant connected to a mobile conveyor system.”
