Cheshire Demolition has boosted its fleet with the purchase of a new Terex Finlay J-1170 from Finlay Central.
The machine is the third Terex Finlay machine brought by the Macclesfield-based business, which was founded in 1984 by brothers Stan and Phil Swindells.
Cheshire Demolition is one of the largest reclamation yards in the North West, offering a broad range of services for demolition projects, either as principal contractor, main contractor or on a subcontracting basis. The company also offers skip hire.
The purchase of the J-1170 follows-on from the successful introduction of their last purchase from Finlay Central, a J-1160 jaw crusher, and previous to that, a Terex Finlay 883 screener.
Neil Trueman, a director of Cheshire Demolition, said: “Initially we bought the J-1170 for the yard, but now the machine also moves from site to site.
“It is working well and a very good feature is that we can lower the main conveyor to the floor with the push of a button, allowing the clearance of rebar and blockages.
“From previous experience we know that Terex Finlay products come with good service and back-up from Finlay Central.”
The J-1170 is currently being used on building demolition sites – most recently powering through 15,000 tonnes to deliver Class 6F2 product at a rate of 200 tonnes an hour.
This processed material will be used for ground restoration at the site as it is being re-built upon.
A compact and aggressive tracked primary jaw crusher, the J-1170 features a robust hydrostatically driven Terex jaw chamber – delivering high capacity with large reduction ratios.
The jaw chamber configuration can be set up specifically for either processing construction demolition debris or quarrying applications.
Other features include a heavy duty variable speed VGF and integrated pre-screen giving excellent production throughput in demolition and recycling applications, as well as quarrying and mining.
Its ability to run the jaw either forwards or backwards makes light work of more sticky materials.
The machine’s compact size, quick set up times and ease of transport – combined with user friendly operational features – have earned it a strong reputation among a wide variety of operators.
Neil Partington, of Finlay Central, has worked for a number of years with the team at Cheshire Demolition. He said: “We are delighted to continue supporting Cheshire Demolition with plant that has a great impact on the successful operations of the business.”
