Keestrack manufactures track mobile crushing and screening equipment and offers the most versatile range of hybrid and plug-in solutions in mobile processing technology for quarrying and recycling applications, resulting in the lowest cost per produced tonne by using innovative drive solutions.

Keestrack recognised the huge saving potentials and operational advantages of electric drives for track-mounted mobile processing solutions with transport weights up to 60tonnes.Keestrack offers diesel/hydraulic and plug-in electric equipment, always backed up by a diesel engine/gen set unit for full autonomy if no mains are available.

Over 75 Keestrack distributors cover over 55 countries worldwide and provide solutions and services in the recycling, quarry and mining industries.

Lowest cost by innovation

Keestrack_HybridWith the plug-in option, connected to the mains, the Keestrack hybrid “e”-versions drastically reduce the operating cost compared to conventional diesel-hydraulic systems. Energy costs can be reduced by up to 80% and the noise levels during emission-free plug-in operation by 30%.

Replacing hydraulic drives with electric motors avoids long oil pipework with leak-prone hose connections, and thermal problems under extreme conditions are eliminated. With significantly lower oil quantities and extended change intervals the smaller hydraulic systems not only save the environment, but also save money.

In full-electric operation, this also applies to all wear parts of the onboard diesel. Less engine hours means less maintenance, which has a positive impact on total cost of ownership, as well as the higher value retention.

By using high-quality steels and the weight-optimised design, Keestrack hybrids weigh less and can be transported in one piece, without dismantling. This contributes to short set-up times. The integration of all electrical system functions is controlled by the intelligent Keestrack plant control. This includes automated routines like sequential start/stop and the telematics monitoring system.
