McLanahan Drag & Reclaim Feeders

McLanahan Drag & Reclaim Feeders

McLanahan Drag Feeders are well suited for surface mining applications that need to move free-flowing materials like coal, lignite, trona, salt, petroleum coke, bauxite, copper and gypsum, while Reclaim Feeders use the same style of feeding to move stockpiled materials. Typically tied into the operation of a downstream conveyor, Drag Feeders and Reclaim Feeders do not require an operator, making them a safe and simple part of the material handling process. Both types of feeders consist of strands of chain with connecting crossbars designed to pull material. The design offers a low-profile in the feed area, allowing it to be filled easier by bulldozers.
