The F-class vibrating screen features fourbearing technology, which minimises structural vibrations and delivers a consistent stroke.

Lonesome Prairie Sand & Gravel screens about 500 tph of material, of which about 350 tph is sand.

The chassis Hikon Industries manufactured for the Tyler F-class includes a hydraulic system to position the vibrating screen at the optimal angle.

Prior to receiving the F-class portable plant, Lonesome Prairie Sand & Gravel experienced regular maintenance and contamination problems with its vibrating screens due to the challenging material conditions.

Most aggregates operations in western Canada use portable equipment, as many quarries are nonsustainable and crews need to be able to move quickly to the next site. A single Lonesome Prairie crew could operate in as many as 15 to 20 quarries a year.

Big Boy Quarry is one of five quarries Lonesome Prairie owns. The 30m pit sharply contrasts with others in the region that average 3-9m.
