Hydraulic breakers, power units, operating controls, steelwork and installation

In addition to its boom systems, McQuaid supplies hydraulic breakers, power units, operating controls (manual and remote), steelwork and installation.

Mobile rock breaker boom systems

McQuaid’s MQ mobile boom systems are specifically designed for mobile crusher applications. Their compact dimensions enable the boom to remain on the crusher during transport, thus eliminating down-time on site for assembly and disassembly.

The MQ range of mobile boom systems, which consists of eight models with horizontal reach of 1.9m to 5.4m, can be integrated onto all makes and models of mobile crushers. As a general rule, the boom is powered directly from the mobile crusher’s own hydraulic system, therefore eliminating the need in most cases for a separate hydraulic power supply.

Mobile boom installation

To date, McQuaid’s mobile booms have been successfully installed onto a wide range of mobile crushers worldwide, including Kleemann, Terex-Finlay, Terex-Pegson, Extec, Metso/Nordberg, Hartl-Crushtek, Hartl-Powercrusher, Parker, Tesab, Gipo and Continentail Nord.
