Kleemann Mobicat MC110 Z EVO Mobile Jaw Crusher

Presented here is the 1:50th scale Kleemann Mobicat MC110 Z EVO mobile jaw crusher which has been produced by NZG. The compact and reliable MC110Z EVO is the smallest mobile jaw crusher in the Kleemann range and is ideal for the processing of demolition and construction waste as well as primary crushing of gravel.

The Z version has an independent double-deck pre-screen with an inlet opening of 1100 x 700mm and a capacity of up to 300 tonne per hour with continuous material feeding contributing to the high performance. The new diesel direct drive concept in combination with electric drives for the chutes, screens and conveyor belts provides high cost effectiveness and lowest fuel consumption levels in its class.

This latest jaw crusher has been authentically modelled in 1:50th scale with a number of great features including two opening side panels on the crusher assembly revealing the fly wheel and drive belt. Simulated spring suspension has been added and looks good while the chassis has good structural framing with very little plastic used on the model.

The main engine compartment is modelled with fine ridge detailing cast into the panel surface with authentic printing of the graphics. Even the emergency stop button has been included along with a folding ladder giving access to the upper platform.

Observation platforms are located on both sides of the chassis with metal access steps and safety railings fitted, offering a good view of the jaw opening and feed hopper.

The hopper is integrated into the frame and modelled without the optional hopper extensions with a grizzly feed plate fitted to the pre-screen, complete with the modelled shaker motors beneath while a short length extending natural fines conveyor located beneath the hopper is connected to pivoting arms allowing it to extend outwards into a working position.

The inlet has a pivoting cover which can be raised to view the profile of the jaw plate beneath (as pictured below) which is another good addition to the model.

The main discharge conveyor features a folding upper section although the smooth surfaced rubber belt is a little thick and too stiff to remain in position and is likely to need some time to settle into shape to look realistic.

Opening the side compartment reveals the main drive belt to the crusher flywheel which can be rotated and actually causes the jaw plate to move slightly which is a great touch by NZG.

Above the conveyor is a magnetic separator which can be hydraulically lowered closer to the belt, with the frame incorporating a small discharge plate with the belt motor housing also modelled. The rubber belt has raised cleats but is a little too stiff to rotate well.

The individually linked metal tracks are scaled well and look authentic with triple grouser pads and bolt detailing clearly defined with individually rotating lower support rollers and authentically finished final drive housings and toothed drive wheels.

The paint finish is excellent with crisp printing of the Kleemann markings, Wirtgen logos and machine designation and is a great partner to the previously released Mobirex MR110Z EVO. The MC110Z is a much smaller unit and can be easily loaded by excavator or loading shovel, as pictured below. A model of a Kleemann mobile screener would finish the range off very nicely.
