Powerscreen Machines on Display at Dealer Open Day Event During an Open Day event for their North American dis‐ tributors Oct. 16‐17 in Boston. Powerscreen showcased a full range of crushers and screens, featuring the latest de‐ sign innovations plus demonstrations of equipment adaptability in wide‐ranging applications. "Our Americas Open Day was an outstanding success and feedback from distributors has been fantastic," said Global Product Line Director Damian Power. "Economic conditions globally may be challenging, but Powerscreen is committed to reinforcing our position as one of the world's leaders in mobile crushing and screening equip‐ ment for the mining, quarrying and recycling industries and to continue to innovate as we have in the past." The event included visits to two neighboring quarry sites to see new and existing Powerscreen equipment working together. The first site in Walpole, Mass., featured an XH500 impact crusher feeding the new Warrior 1400X screening machine working on a recycled concrete and asphalt application. The Warrior 1400X was set at 3‐in. (75mm) while the bottom deck was set at 1‐in. (25mm) producing 3‐in.+ (75mm+), 1‐3‐in. (25‐75mm) and 0‐1‐in. (0‐25mm). The second site at Wrentham, Mass., had a new XA400S Pre‐Screen jaw crusher feeding a 1300 Maxtrak cone crusher, feeding a Chieftain 2100S screen and a separate Warrior 2400 screen, working on blasted granite. The pre‐screen on the jaw was set at 2‐in. (50mm) with the Chieftain configured at 1‐in. (25mm) on the top deck, ½‐ in. (13mm) on the middle deck and 1/4‐in.(6mm) on the bottom deck.
