Powerscreen New England has sold the first Warrior 1400X screen in the United States.

The unit has been purchased by family-run construction business Carrier Home Builders.

The Warrior 1400X was released by UK manufacturer Powerscreen in 2012, and has achieved strong sales in Europe. The manufacturer is hoping that Carrier’s purchase is a sign of things to come in the US market.

The Powerscreen unit has been dispatched to a Carrier project in Farmington, Connecticut, where it is being used for topsoil, sand, and gravel applications. The Warrior 1400X is also helping to make stone in tandem with a Powerscreen 1000 Maxtrak cone crusher.

Carrier decided to purchase the new screen after trialling a smaller Powerscreen Warrior 800, as company vice president Steve Carrier explained.

“We couldn’t believe what the little machine was capable of doing,” he said. “However, once we saw the Warrior 1400X, we made the difficult decision to buy the bigger machine with the higher capacity.

“There were various impressive aspects of the machine, primarily how well it performed as a finishing screen and not just as a scalping screen,” continued Carrier. “We were blown away with its performance in topsoil, and we liked the ground clearance of the machine.”

The Warrior 1400X features the unique ability to raise its collection conveyor. Furthermore, the standard model has been designed so that it can easily switch from a two-way to a three-way split machine on site.

“It was easy to set up and work on,” explained Carrier. “There was little need for wrenches and screen changing was easy. Another key benefit for us was that we could load the machine from the back with a loader, or fold the sides down to load with an excavator from the sides.”

With its reduced engine running speed and enhanced hydraulics, the Warrior 1400X delivers better fuel economy than its predecessor. The machine can be fitted with either a Tier 3/Stage IIIA or a Tier 4i/Stage IIIB Caterpillar diesel engine.
