Cost effective crushing
23 May 2014
Two Terex Finlay J-1170 mobile jaw crushers are providing economic benefits for J O’Doherty Haulage, based in north London, UK, with each J-1170 individually producing the same throughput of a screen and crusher combination that they have replaced.
James O’Doherty, owner of J O’Doherty Haulage, said: “We are really pleased with the machines. They are being used to produce Type 1 recycled aggregate, and 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 recycled aggregate – and as the J-1170 performs well in terms of fuel efficiency we benefit from a double saving.”
J O’Doherty Haulage was founded in 1987 by James O’Doherty as a single owner driver. Since then the company has grown, specialising in all aspects of haulage, waste transfer and recycling, as well as skip and plant hire. The focus of the business is on quality, careful management, and environmental protection – with high levels of customer service – and a commitment to the latest technology to deliver recycled products. The company also has a demolition division, Embassy, which operates across London and provides O’Doherty with material to produce recycled aggregate.
