PETERBOROUGH, ON – The development of the new McCloskey C50 Jaw Crusher is a natural progression and is welcomed by the industry, according to Paschal McCloskey, company owner and founder.


Along with our new portable C44 Cone Crusher and the R105, the latest addition to our popular screening line, the launch of the C50 Crusher enables McCloskey dealers to be one-stop shopping for our customers in meeting all their crushing, screening and recycling needs, says McCloskey. We™re very proud to be able to deliver on our promise to our customers to provide them with the most innovative and practical solutions to meet their needs.


Coming on the heels of its highly successful world debut at the first Global Dealer Convention in Ireland in October 2008, the C50 Crusher makes its debut to the general public at the National Heavy Equipment Show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on March 5th & 6th.  In addition to Paschal McCloskey, McCloskey design engineers, Stephen Whyte and Neil Suitor, will be on hand to greet customers and discuss their equipment needs.

The C50 Crusher™s user-friendly waterproof control panel provides operators with excellent continuous machine diagnostics.
