• Barford Equipment to launch two new track mounted screeners into the US market

    First screeners will be previewed then auctioned by Yoder & Frey at the Kissimmee, Florida sale

    Barford Equipment, the UK based manufacturer of world leading mobile screeners, trailers, screen boxes, as well as wheeled and tracked conveyors, is poised to enter the US market in 2018 with the launch of the SR124 and the S104, two new track mounted screeners.

    Barford Equipment is using Yoder & Frey auctioneers to prelude both of the new mobile screeners to the US market at its upcoming 2018 Spring Sale in Kissimmee, Florida (between February 13-17) – the perfect event to develop brand awareness plus meet prospective distributor representatives and buyers. Both models will then each be sold at the auction, without reserve, to the highest bidders.

    “The world’s construction machinery, aggregate, quarry and mining markets will all be focusing on the Kissimmee auction so this is a great opportunity for us to meet potential distributors and probable buyers and gauge the appeal of both our new machines,” explained Stephen Murphy, Distribution Manager for the Barford product range. “Barford is a well known brand in the UK and across Europe, having built an enviable reputation and possessing a long and illustrious history, but it is currently relatively unknown in the US market; but that’s about to change. Yoder & Frey is well known for organising prestigious equipment auctions that draw the attention of the types of buyers we are looking for and are the ideal match for us entering this sector.”

    The two robust and refined Barford models being launched comprise: the SR124 (pictured) a tracked three way split screener, with a 12 x 4 screen box that fits into a 40ft HC container; and the S104 a tracked three way split screener with a 10 x 4 screen box that again fits into a 40ft HC container.

    “We are delighted to include both these new Barford screener models at our upcoming Kissimmee auction and are confident that the US market will embrace these excellent ‘value for money’ machines,” stated Peter Clark, founder and CEO of Yoder & Frey. “Our auctions always attract significant interest and we are working closely with consignors to ensure the upcoming sale is a success on all counts.”

    The SR124 is built around a Caterpillar power unit and with the engine on the S104 being produced by JCB a renowned British manufacturer and invertors of the widely popular and much copied JCB backhoe / loader. The S104 is also available with a Deutz engine. Other technical specs comprise:

    About Barford Equipment

    Barford is a UK based construction machinery and agricultural equipment manufacturer that can trace its roots back to 1840. Now located in Northern Ireland, the company manufactures world leading mobile screeners, trailers, screen boxes as well as wheeled and tracked conveyors.

    In 1932 agriculture and steamroller giant Aveling & Porter (founded 1850) acquired the assets of Barford & Perkins (founded 1840) manufacturers of road rollers, compactors and agricultural equipment, with ownership of both companies being transferred to Ruston and Hornsby; resulting in the creation of Aveling Barford in February 1934.

    In the late 1930s Aveling Barford manufactured over 75% of all road rollers in the United Kingdom becoming world leaders in its field. During the war years they transferred their engineering skills and know-how towards manufacturing gun carriages for the war effort. In the subsequent years Aveling Barford continued to produce a range of construction equipment including road rollers, articulated dump trucks and site dumpers.

    Today, Barford continues its tradition of engineering excellence, manufacturing a range of mobile screening and materials handling equipment, with a focus on reliability, simplicity and functionality. Barford equipment is guaranteed to get the job done and its mission is to provide customers with equipment that adds value to their business.
