Tracked Trommel

The Tracked Trommel is designed around its bigger brother the Static Trommel. It incorporates many of the the proven feature of the Static Trommel whilst maintaining the flexibility of the Tracked status. The feeder is of the reciprocating type powered by hydraulic cylinders, this gives a controlled feed into the barrel for even the most difficult material. The feed hopper is made from abrasive resistant plate to help prolong its life and folds down for traveling. The chain driven barrel is 6M long giving the option to produce up two products plus oversize.

The chassis and on board conveyors are actuated by hydraulic cylinders to convert from traveling to working and back again. Standard track units are incorporated in the design to help reduce cost and minimise down time. Feed is either by excavator or wheel loader, this helps to keep the feed ramp to a minimum.

Key Features


The Trommel is ideal for the screening of all types of material from quarries, mines and recycling. The design of the barrel helps to make it self cleaning giving the required product at the first attempt. From the cleaning of contaminated material with moisture, dirt and clay to sizing for rip rap and sea defence stone.



The Trommel is designed to be transported by a standard low loader. Hydraulic cylinders assist in the preparation of the machine for both working and transport.


The machine is supplied in one assembly and dependent upon how the machine has been transported it is possible to have it up and running in 4 to 6 hours.


The feed hopper is manufactured from abrasive resistant plate to help extend its life. It comes as standard with hopper extensions that fold down for transport. The reciprocating feeder is powered by hydraulic cylinders and gives a controlled feed into the barrel. The feeder has proven itself to be best suited for all types of materials.



The barrel is driven directly by two of the four support rollers. These are fitted with hydraulic motors which offer full control of the rotation of the barrel to suit the application. The rollers are heavy duty and have been designed to withstand both the loading of the material and also the tumbling action of large pieces of rock.


All Hercules Trommels give high efficiency screening of difficult materials. The  Trommel is a proven technology with low maintenance and no permanent operator. Thus achieving low operating costs and costs per tonne. The design is customisable to suit the application giving the customer full confidence of the machine.
