An innovative aggregate supplier is said to have seen its production levels soar after bringing in a Terex Finlay J-1170AS.

Grab and Deliver, based in Sunderland,  north-east England, took delivery of the compact, aggressive tracked primary jaw crusher this summer. The company also provides waste material collection and haulage vehicle maintenance. The plant, supplied by Finlay Plant Northern - part of the Finlay Group, powers through approximately 5,000 tonnes of aggregate in a week.

Featuring a robust hydrostatically driven jaw chamber, the J-1170AS has been brought in to work alongside a Terex Finlay 883 screener, also specified by Finlay Plant Northern.

Material brought to the site is being fed into the screener to produce top soil and an oversize aggregate.

The Terex Finlay J-1170AS is then being fed with the oversize material to produce 45mm down aggregate for use in roads and footpaths – at a production rate of 700 tonnes a day.

Peter Barrass, of Grab and Deliver, has been impressed by the benefits of the machine.

He said: “The new plant has completely proved itself and production levels have been excellent. You just press a button and it starts automatically, it’s so simple to use and all parts are easily accessible.

“It takes up very little room on site and, thanks to the remote control, we can easily move it about - something we’ve never been able to do with a crusher before.”

Founded by Peter Barrass and Thomas Dunn in 2003, Grab and Deliver has worked with Finlay Plant Northern for eight years.

Barrass added: “Finlay Plant Northern are great to deal with. They always know the best time to visit the site and everything gets done when they’re here.”

Charlie Nairn, of Finlay Plant Northern, said: “It’s fantastic to see the Terex Finlay J-1170AS performing so well for Grab and Deliver. The plant is a versatile crusher that’s ideal for many different applications.”
