Crushers boost aggregate

J O’Doherty Haulage has seen savings since the introduction of two Terex Finlay J-1170 jaw crushers (pictured above) at its north London recycling facility. Supplied by Finlay Plant South East, the J-1170s are being used to produce Type 1 recycled aggregate.

Owner James O’Doherty said: “We are really pleased with the machines. Previously we had to use a screener in front of our old crusher, but that is not required with this.

“We can close the jaws down and crush to the floor. The end result is that we need only one machine instead of two to produce the aggregate.

“As the J-1170 performs well in terms of fuel efficiency, we benefit from a double saving. Another advantage is that the machine’s pre-screen takes out the fines before they enter the jaw, and that means less wear.”
