New jaw at Cheshire
By Lindsay Gale18 September 2014
Macclesfield, UK, based Cheshire Demolition has recently expanded its crushing capabilities through the addition of a Terex Finlay J-1170 mobile jaw crusher supplied by dealer Finlay Central, following on from the acquisition of a J-1160 jaw and an 883 screen from the same manufacturer. The company has one of the largest reclamation yards in the north-west of England and offers the full line of demolition services as well as skip hire.
The company originally bought the new machine for use at its yard, but now it is also used on site. Most recently, it processed 15,000 tonnes to deliver Class 6F2 product at a rate of 200 tonnes per hour that will be used for ground restoration on site to make it suitable for redevelopment.
The J-1170 uses a hydrostatically driven jaw chamber that Finlay says delivers high capacity with large reduction ratios. Its configuration can be set up specifically for processing construction and demolition waste or for use in quarrying applications. It also features a heavy duty variable speed grizzly feeder and integrated prescreen that the company claims delivers high production throughput in demolition and Recycling applications, as well as in mining and quarrying.
