LF514 displayed at Bauma 2016 which was sold to Zurcher in Germany – a large German rail infrastructure company who used the LF to load rail cars with railway ballast
Commenting on the forthcoming SteinExpo, Malachy Gribben Commercial Director stated, “Telestack look forward to exhibiting at SteinExpo in its tenth year. Germany is a key market for us and our products are well known, widely distributed and trusted. We have LF units across the globe that are used in a variety of applications from stockpiling crushed glass in Germany, bargeloading on an airport construction project in Japan, to a coal ash clean-up project in USA. The addition of the Revolution feature which allows the unit to turn 360°, has added to the flexibility and functionality of the unit. We continue to invest in our hopper feeder range and our portfolio of LF applications is by far the most varied and comprehensive among manufacturers of this type of product and our units in the field are supported by experienced and reliable partners who understand their customer’s business.”

LF520 Revolution Hopper Feeder
The LF520 Revolution Hopper Feeder is a track mounted fully mobile conveyor designed to work at production rates of up to 500tph (550 Ton per hr). Telestack’s low feed, hopper feeder range is designed to be loaded directly from wheel loaders, grab cranes, excavators etc. feed auxiliary equipment, reclaim to other conveyors, directly load ships, trucks, rail wagons etc. Since the hopper feeder is track mounted the unit has excellent mobility on site and will eliminate double handling of material, which reduces overall costs for operator.
The LF model also has a significantly lower feed in height compared to standard hopper feeders which allows for rear feeding which can be beneficial when operating in constrained areas. The range of standard machine types is available with boom lengths up to 24 metres or fully customised to suit the Client’s specific application, feeding equipment and site conditions. The LF range has a generous hopper width and the heavy duty feeder has a full impact bed for aggressive application/large lump sizes which makes it the ideal design for being fed by loader and excavator.
Padraig McDermott, one of Telestack’s International Sales Manager for Germany continues “We had an LF514 at the Bauma exhibition in Munich last year which was sold to the large German rail infrastructure company Zurcher to load rail cars with railway ballast and it generated great interest on the stand among people from a range of applications. Our ability to demonstrate the versatility of the LF has quickly given it a solid reputation. We have a customer in Norway who uses his LF520 to stockpile in his quarry and then tracks the LF520 to the quayside and uses the same unit to load barges. We have many who use it in warehouse applications simply because it is easier to feed as the loader is able to drive straight in and tip. The addition of the Revolution feature has only added to the flexibility of the unit and its improved manoeuvrability is already having positive impact with operators insisting on the revolution feature.”
The additional Revolution feature comprises of the hopper feeder range with centre mounted slew bearing that enables 360° rotation and movement of the hopper to enhance the mobility and flexibility on site. The mobility feature makes it ideal for barge loading and unloading, rail loading / unloading and stockpiling. The ability to move parallel enables the operator to manoeuvre the unit parallel to the vessel, minimising repositioning thus enhancing loading rates and efficiency.
