Telsmith Iron Giant Jaw Crusher offers high performance

January 21, 2020  By Telsmith

Las Vegas, Nev. – Telsmith will be promoting their 4448 Iron Gian Jaw Crusher at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020. The Iron Giant jaw crushers are designed with a long, high-volume crushing chamber that delivers reliable performance even with the hardest materials such as basalt or granite and can be used in aggregate, frac sand, and mining operations as the primary crushing unit.

Available in both stationary and portable configurations, the 4448 Iron Giant has throughput capacities ranging from 349-936 MTPH and closed side settings ranging from 5-12 inches.

To lower maintenance costs and maximize uptime the Iron Giant jaws incorporate maintenance features not normally found in jaw crushers such as replaceable AR steel liners that are built into several areas to protect major components from wear.

Safety is engineered into every Telsmith piece of equipment. One of the main safety features of the Iron Giant is the trouble-free wedge lock adjustment system, which is safe even after years of service in the toughest operating conditions.


To begin adjustment, hydraulic cylinders do the heavy work of unlocking the wedge and moving the beam forward. Easy to handle lightweight shims are used to fix the setting. Hydraulics then drive the wedge in place, firmly locking the beam into position, which eliminates the need for special tools to carry out the adjustment.

The wedge lock system also incorporates a unique spring bracket that moves with the beam during adjustment, which saves time by eliminating the need to reset the spring each time the crusher setting is changed, getting the operation up and running quickly.
