Ideal for small to medium sized operations where space may be limited, the highly versatile TTS 518 is available in both tracked and wheeled variants and can screen a variety of material including compost, biomass, soil, gravel and waste.

Conor Hegarty, International Sales Director commented: “The TTS 518 trommel is the latest trommel to be launched by Terex Ecotec and will complement our strong range of trommels already in the market. Inspired by the successful TTS 620, the TTS 518 has been designed as an entry level machine where lower volumes and smaller machine footprint are required. More compact without sacrificing key features the TTS 518 benefits from low operating costs and comes with the latest engine technology complying with Stage V emissions standards.”

The TTS 518 shares the same intuitive control system and ‘push to start’ buttons used on the TTS 620, allowing the operator to effortlessly configure the machine to suit the required application. The intelligent feed control system continually monitors the machine adjusting the feeder speed to optimise screening performance and throughput. Being driven at the head, the feeder provides an excellent and continuous feed rate, reducing slippage in difficult applications.

The feeder has also been designed as a slide out cassette which allows for easy maintenance and quick and simple belt changing. The clear tunnel area underneath the feeder prevents material build up and allows any material in this area to drop directly onto the ground.
