First Terex Finlay machine for Sanders Plant

Terex Finlay J-1170 jaw crusher

Northumberland-based firm purchases J-1170 crusher to help increase recycling productivity 

A FAMILY-owned recycling and plant hire company has taken delivery of its first crusher from Finlay Plant Northern. Sanders Plant and Waste Management had previously hired crushers, but decided to take a Terex Finlay J-1170 plant out on demonstration in the summer. 

Following the trial, Carl Sanders, managing director of Sanders Plant, was so impressed with the machine’s performance that he had no hesitation in purchasing the J-1170 crusher. He commented: ‘We’d talked about the possibility of buying a crusher for a long time and we finally decided to have one out on demonstration. Since then we’ve processed and sold material far faster and more efficiently than we’ve ever managed and achieved before.’ 


Sanders are using the Terex Finlay J-1170 to separate fines and process inert waste down to 50mm at a production rate of up to 120 tonnes/h. The waste material is brought to the company’s recycling facility from demolition sites across Northumberland and Tyne and Wear. 

The compact tracked primary crusher features a robust, hydrostatically driven Terex jaw chamber that delivers high capacity with large reduction ratios, while other key features include a variable speed vibrator grizzly feeder and integrated pre-screen that provides high throughput in quarrying, demolition and recycling applications. 

Weighing 48.8 tonnes and featuring compact dimensions, the J-1170 unit is economical to transport and complements Sanders Plant’s growing hire fleet. 

Charlie Nairn, managing director of Finlay Plant Northern, said: ‘The J-1170 is proving to be the ideal machine for Sanders Plant and Waste Management. They also have peace of mind as Finlay Group’s service and back-up teams are on hand 24 hours day, seven days a week.’
