September 20, 2013, Eugene, Ore. – KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile
Screens has released the new generation SuperStacker, its latest model of
telescoping stackers designed to minimize stockpile segregate and increase
stockpile capacity.

The new generation SuperStacker was launched at the
company’s National Dealer Conference, held this year Sept. 16-19 in Eugene,
Ore.

SuperStackers are designed for building a desegregated
stockpile and increasing product quality. By controlling the extension of the
stinger conveyor, radial travel and conveyor incline, layered windrows will be
built, minimizing stockpile segregation.

The new SuperStacker, which is the latest evolution in KPI-JCI
and Astec Mobile Screens telescoping stackers, eliminates the echain, which
reduces field maintenance. The new model also features an updated, more
user-friendly Wizard Touch automation control system, which allows for more
stockpiling options and produces a higher-quality product. The easy-to-use automation system comes with
factory pre-set programming, and provides the versatility of customizing in the
field.

According to the company, the new SuperStacker design allows
30 percent more stockpile in the same footprint versus a conventional stacker,
optimizing storage space.

The KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens’ SuperStacker includes
as standard a cam-arm linkage, connecting the rear undercarriage to the
conveyor frame. This maintains a constant radius from the pivot plate to the
axle, ensuring true radial movement and uninterrupted stockpiling. The gullwing
axle provides optimal portability, going from road portable to operational in
minutes.
