A Jersey-based sand and gravel quarry has taken delivery of a new Terex Finlay 683 Supertrak from Finlay Plant Southern.
Simon Sand & Gravel Limited – a fifth generation, family-owned quarry situated at St Ouen’s Bay on the west coast – has been supplying the island’s building trade since 1909.
The Terex Finlay 683 Supertrak is being used for the secondary screening and processing of quarried gravel once it has been removed from the sand.
Tracked for full mobility, the machine is fitted with a double deck live vibrating grid. It is producing stockpiles of 16-50mm, 8-16mm, less than 8mm aggregate and backfill. The double deck live vibrating grid, removes all oversize material before the final grading screen.
John Dunne, managing director of Finlay Plant Southern, a Finlay Group company, said: "Simon Sand & Gravel Limited bought the new 683 Supertrak to compliment the other machines they are using.
"We have been dealing with the company for over five years now and have supplied, amongst other things, a Terex Finlay 390 dry screener as well as three Terex Finlay 532 stockpilers, so we were pleased to be able to continue our association with them."
Jason Simon, owner of Simon Sand & Gravel Limited, said: "Because the equipment Finlay supplied us previously had performed exceptionally well it was an easy decision to return to them for a new machine."
"We required a mobile screener capable of being moved around the quarry with ease and being on tracks the 683 was the perfect choice."
"Having just started selling the products from the 683 we’re getting very favourable reports from our customers – It’s always good to receive their approval."
