McLanahan Feeder-Breakers

Rugged and Dependable… Stationary or Mobile…
Single or Dual Drag… Electric or Hydraulic Drive

McLanahan was the first manufacturer to offer direct-drive feeder-breakers, by eliminating shear pins that cause nuisance "trips" and problems related to chain and sprocket maintenance. They were also the first manufacturer to incorporate a magnetic coupling in a direct, alignment-free drive. The user-friendly design affords easy access to replaceable components and allows for removal of shaft assemblies in one piece.

Because each mining application is different, each McLanahan Feeder-Breaker is custom-designed to meet specific requirements. However, you can be assured that every McLanahan Feeder-Breaker features the same trouble-free design and structural integrity that has enabled mining operations around the world to produce at their highest, most efficient levels.

McLanahan Feeder-Breaker features include:

  • More than 75,000 pounds of pull
  • Superior tramming ability over rough terrain
  • Direct mechanical drive
  • No shear pins
  • Hydraulic
  • Stationary or mobile
  • Single or dual drag
  • Crawler-mounted for underground use
