An aggregate supplier has seen production levels soar after bringing in a Terex Finlay J-1170AS jaw crusher. Sunderland-based Grab & Deliver, which also provides waste collection and haulage vehicle maintenance, took delivery of the compact and aggressive tracked primary jaw crusher last month.
The plant, supplied by Finlay Plant Northern, has since powered through around 5,000 tonnes of aggregate in a week.
The J-1170AS, featuring a robust hydrostatically driven jaw chamber, has been brought in to work alongside a Terex Finlay 883 screener. Material goes into the screener to produce topsoil and an oversize aggregate. The J-1170AS is then fed with the oversize material to produce 45mm or smaller aggregate for use in roads and footpaths at a production rate of 700 tonnes a day.
Peter Barrass, co-founder of Grab & Deliver, is impressed by the benefits of the machine: “It is simple to use and all parts are easily accessible. It takes up very little room on-site and, thanks to the remote control, we can easily move it about – something we’ve never been able to do with a crusher before.”
Finlay Plant Northern added: “With a robust variable speed VGF and integrated pre-screen, the J-1170AS offers best-in-class production levels not just in recycling, but also mining, quarrying and demolition.”
