First Powerscreen Premiertrak 600E in Ireland at Collen Bros22.05.2023
Collen Bros (Quarries) Ltd, a family owned and operated civil engineering company located in County Armagh/Northern Ireland, recently took delivery of a Powerscreen Premiertrak 600E (PT600E) Jaw Crusher, which is the first of its kind to be delivered in the UK and Ireland.

The Premiertrak 600E Jaw Crusher is part of the growing Powerscreen Hybrid range and has been designed for large-scale operators who require high production in recycling, quarrying, construction and demolition, and mining applications. With significant operational savings, reduced fuel consumption and ultimately reduced CO2 emissions, this machine is a popular choice for customers who want to maximise efficiency and minimise their carbon footprint.
In addition to the new Jaw Crusher, Collen Bros has also invested in an electric CT80 Powerscreen Conveyor
The new PT600E for Collen Bros includes an extra-large feeder as well as a pre-screen option, which removes a large proportion of fines from the feed material. As a result, the company has been able to increase their production rates as well as further improve product specification.
Collen continues: “In addition to supporting another local business, we thought with Powerscreen Ireland being based close to our operations – they could provide us with seamless access to spare parts and technical assistance if/when required. I have been very impressed with the technical background and applications knowledge from the Powerscreen Ireland team throughout the process. So far, the increased production and greatly lowered running costs have been a game changer in our quarry and we believe Hybrid machines are the way forward.”
