Fourth generation crusher for MMC
By Steve Ducker20 September 2018
A United Kingdom-based plant hire company has purchased a fourth-generation machine after taking delivery of the original prototype of the plant 16 years ago.
MMC Southern – which has its head office in Leicester in the English midlands – has welcomed its fourth Terex Finlay J-1175 from Finlay Plant SW.
MMC director Denver McCullough said: “The Terex Finlay J-1175 is definitely capable of processing more material, but we have to make sure that the secondary plant can keep up with it.
“The jaw crushers are just great machines and competitively priced.
“We also have a great working relationship with Finlay Plant SW and we have never been disappointed.”
MMC Southern was the first company in the UK to trial the high-performance Terex Finlay J-1175 in 2002.
The tracked mobile jaw crusher features a Terex Jaques JW42 jaw crusher and a heavy duty VGF feeder to provide the operator with optimum production.
Due to its compact size, quick set up times, ease of transport and simple maintenance, the model is described as ideal for demolition applications.
Gareth Johnson, of Finlay Plant SW, said: “We’ve worked closely with MMC Southern over the years and it’s been fantastic to see the Terex Finlay J-1175 become such a valued player within the company.”
