Choosing The Perfect Partner Is Important

Posted on:21/06/2016


Prall-Tec GmbH, based in North West Germany, has over 30-years’ experience in the construction and repair of impact and hammer mills, jaw crushers and shredders as well as the supply of mobile screens, and wheeled and tracked mobile conveyors.

“Our goal was to build a high quality crusher with the same performance characteristics as our existing stationary impact crushers that we have been building for more than 20 years,” commented Frederik Teepe, Managing Director of Prall-Tec GmbH.

Prall-Tec had already chosen Crushers Inc. Ltd, based in Leicestershire, a customer driven solution provider for the crushing, screening and recycling industry, to design and manufacture the chassis and to install the engine. “Apart from choosing Crushers Inc., we wanted to select the right engine for the application from a supplier that could assist and support us in the installation process. Barrus reacted very quickly to our initial enquiry and provided excellent technical support. Another contributing factor in the choice of engine is the extensive John Deere support network throughout Europe providing us with fast and efficient assistance and parts support.” Frederik explained. Prall-Tec needed the John Deere 6090HFU84 Stage 3a, 1500rpm fixed speed engine very quickly. In order to meet the deadline, the application team at Barrus rapidly converted an existing engine in their workshop facilities to the required specification and assisted with the installation.

Commenting on the engines performance Frederik said, “After completing several performance tests the 9-litre John Deere engine provided so much power that we were able to achieve an even greater output than we had first calculated, confirming that we had chosen the right engine and the right partners for our mobile crushing project.”

“Barrus are proud to be involved in Prall-Tec’s ‘first’ in the mobile crusher market. John Deere engines offer many advantages for recycling and quarry applications including uninterrupted power, ultimate reliability and low cost of ownership. They are driving crushers, excavators, loaders, dumpers, gensets and air compressors worldwide,” comments John Day, General Manager for the Industrial Division at Barrus.

Following on from this successful project, Prall-Tec has already discussed two more applications that will include John Deere engines. “The technical and commercial support that we have received from Barrus and the quality and service John Deere is offering fits perfectly with the ethos of Prall-Tec; quality, service and great performance,” Frederik concludes
