With a positive history working with Barlows Earthmoving in supplying crushing and screening equipment to the aggregates company, Tutt Bryant is again supporting the business as supplier of choice for Metso Outotec products.
Barlows Earthmoving is a family owned and operated business with over fifty years of knowledge specialising in on-site contract mining and construction, as well as crushing and screening production.
The company, operated by Jeffrey, Stewart and Paula Barlow, services the Central Queensland area, from Rockhampton and surrounds to as far south as Gladstone.
Barlows Earthmoving operates the Tanby-1 hard rock and sand quarry, as well as the Coorooman hard rock quarry, enabling it to source quality sand and quarry products for its clients.
Director Jeffrey Barlow said the difference that Barlows Earthmoving makes is strongly attributed to the knowledge of its workforce.
“Our company is made up of highly experienced individuals with a passion for mobile crushing plant operations,” Jeffrey said.
“The Barlow family prides itself on achieving the highest work standards. As our workload at several different sites increases, we are determined to complete our work on time and without exception.”
Trusted build quality
Having an extensive fleet of Metso Outotec Lokotracks already, including a LT106, three LT200HP’s, two LT7150 VSI’s, four finishing screens and a scalper, has not stopped brothers Jeffrey and Stewart from looking to add another cone crusher, supplied by Tutt Bryant, to keep up with the growing workload of the business. Jeffrey and Stewart know from experience in the industry, the benefit of operating machinery with high build quality and proven reliability. Looking at the products that have served the business well, the first LT200HP owned by the business has over 11,000 hours and is still in service today.
“With our experience with Metso Outotec products, we expect that this machine alone will last over 30,000 hours,” Jeffrey said.
“It’s part of why our fleet is made up of these machines. We have had an overwhelmingly positive experience with Metso Outotec products delivering the results that we need.”
When enquiring about a new LT200HP to add to their fleet, Jeffrey and Stewart spoke to Tutt Bryant’s Queensland and Norther Territory crushing and screening account manager, Darrell Porter, who suggested the new LT200HPX.
A new Lokotrack
The new to market Lokotrack LT200HPX is equipped with a Metso Outotec Nordberg HP200 cone crusher and features a double deck pre-screen option that offers up to 30 per cent more capacity than a comparable cone without pre-screen.
The LT200HPX additionally has the ability to scalp out before the cone, thereby enhancing concrete aggregate production in both higher capacity and with lower wear. In addition, due to being a Metso Outotec machine, the LT200HPX fits in with the existing plant arrangement present at Barlows Earthmoving.
Porter supplied the Barlows Earthmoving team with a comparison between using the LT200HP and the LT200HPX as well as a process layout including the LT106, LT200HPX and ST3.8, to supply evidence as to how it would increase production.
“After seeing the specifications of the machine and how it works as opposed to other equipment, we agreed that the LT200HPX would be the best option for our expanding workload,” Stewart said.
As the first sold in Australia, Tutt Bryant Equipment’s specialised service technicians worked in conjunction with staff from Metso Outotec Australia to provide onsite training on usage, fault finding and maintenance procedures with the Barlows Earthmoving staff.
On using the LT200HPX, Jeffrey said that the machine “is working well in making our concrete aggregate.”
“Stewart is looking forward to taking it out on his road base job where he expects it to really shine.”
The strong relationship built between Barlows Earthmoving and the team at Tutt Bryant, Paula said, has gone a long way in facilitating the decision to use Metso Outotec branded equipment.
“I could not speak highly enough of the Tutt Bryant Equipment sales and support team,” Paula said.
“We have had a long relationship with Tutt Bryant and consider them to be a part of the Barlows Earthmoving family.”
Tutt Bryant continue to support Barlows Earthmoving with technical, field, workshop and parts provided from Tutt Bryant’s Queensland branch.
