Norfolk-based firm powers through waste with Finlay Plant Southern partnership
CARL Bird Skip Hire have chosen Finlay Plant Southern as a trusted partner to deliver a highly productive and convenient mobile waste recovery solution to power through volumes of material on site.
Having purchased a number of Terex Finlay machines from Finlay Plant Southern over the years, the family-run business recently took delivery of a Kiverco PS122 picking line at its site for a two-week hire period.
Fitted with an overband magnet to recover ferrous metals, the machine was fed by a Terex Finlay 883+ allowing a four-man picking line team to clean up contaminated hardcore, recovering clean stone and wood.
Carl Bird, managing director of the waste-management business, was impressed with the performance of the Kiverco PS122 picking line and plans to reintroduce it later this year.
‘It’s done a brilliant job,’ he commented. ‘We didn’t even run it every day and it still processed a 4,000 tonne stockpile,’ he said. ‘We’ll definitely be having it out on hire again soon as it is helping us to achieve our aim of zero per cent to landfill.’
Chris Bell of Finlay Plant Southern, added: ‘The Kiverco PS122 offers best-in-class set-up simplicity, safety and environmental protection, as well as maximizing operator comfort with an insulted cabin boasting PVC windows and doors.
‘It also features a 1.2m wide, adjustable speed picking belt to best suit the waste material and recovery required. It’s great to see the Kiverco PS122 Picking line bringing so many benefits to Carl and his team. Because they already have the Terex Finlay 883+ on site, which is used to screen hardcore, it makes it even easier for them.’
