During the event, Metso handed over four Lokotrack® mobile crushing plants to its longtime end customers. During the exhibition, the handovers to end customers included the15th Lokotrack plant, an LT96 equipped with a jaw crusher, to German customer Fa. Bierbrauer & Sohn GmbH, and Kurz Aufbereitungsanlagen received the company's 10th Lokotrack to their rental fleet.
Metso and its distributor HSB (Germany), handed over another Lokotrack LT96 jaw plant to the company Merscher GmbH. In addition, Metso's distributor Fischer & Jung received an LT1213S impactor that will start crushing as a rental machine immediately after the exhibition.
"Easy and reliable machines for rental purposes"
Kurz Aufbereitungsanlagen, based in Friolzheim, Germany, actively rents out its Lokotrack crushing plants for any aggregates production or recycling needs. "Lokotracks have proven themselves reliable machines that are easy to operate in rental use. Our end customers expect high machine availability that is easy to reach using Metso's machinery," comments Managing Director Michel Kurz. To celebrate the 10th unit of the company, Kurz Aufbereitungsanlagen named their new LT96 after the youngest son of Michel Kurz. The name "Lian Matti" is engraved on the machine plate.
