More torque, more power, more output. CR450 Diesel Crusher launches at the Executive Hire Show

Established in 2018, Dragon Equipment is a renowned global brand for its compact crushing machines and is taking things to the next level with the launch of the CR450 Diesel Crusher. The first diesel-only crusher from the British company, the CR450 Diesel Crusher, was designed and built at their head office and production facility in Suffolk.

The newest addition to the range of compact crushers is powered by the Kubota D722 3-cylinder water-cooled 19hp diesel engine. The higher torque this engine provides enables the CR450 Crusher to power through even the hardest of materials at a higher speed for a sustained period, dramatically increasing the output. Combine that with the large 33-litre fuel tank, and the machine can keep crushing in excess of twelve hours.

The Kubota D722 diesel engine is highly regarded within the hire industry and complies with EPA/CARB tier 4 emissions regulations.

Featuring a 460mm x 205mm mouth aperture, the CR450 Crusher’s Hardox jaw is the largest in the range to date. Its funnel is designed to be loaded by a mini excavator, helping operators handle larger jobs quickly and efficiently, increasing productivity. With a total weight of under 1,500Kgs, it can be easily loaded onto a trailer with an excavator to minimise transportation costs. This is particularly useful for those jobs where the machines are used in partnership to maximise the daily work rate.

The CR450 Crusher features all-terrain tracks and an increased width of 970mm, significantly improving its onsite stability for the increased workload – but remaining compact enough to give the machine a real advantage on tough-to-reach or more demanding sites.

Retaining all the users’ best-loved features from the rest of the range, the CR450 Diesel Crusher includes instant jaw adjustment for crush sizes from 3-55mm, anti-stall and auto-reverse for trouble-free hires. Not forgetting the Dragon-designed fold-up conveyor for ease of storage and transportation.

The machine will officially launch at the 2024 Executive Hire Show today (14th February). Visit Stand G21 over the next two days, chat with the team and take a closer look at their range of machines. To find out more about the CR450 Diesel Crusher click HERE.
