First Terex Finlay machine for Stainton Quarry

Terex Finlay 883 mobile screen

Sandstone quarry broadens its horizons with second-hand Terex Finlay 883 mobile screen

A SANDSTONE quarry in north-east England looking to expand its markets has taken delivery of its first Terex Finlay machine.

Stainton Quarry, near Barnard Castle, Co. Durham, has purchased a second-hand 883 mobile screen, supplied to the site by Finlay Plant Northern.


The machine is playing an integral role in the production of architectural building stone and aggregates, and supporting the quarry's work to process and reclaim sandstone for use in construction projects throughout the UK.

A distinctive, fine grained, buff-coloured stone which features a fine brown speckle has been quarried at Stainton since the 1600s.

Andrew Buck, the operator of Stainton Quarry, said: ‘We are producing a higher-quality product now with the 883 than we were before, and offering a clean product too. By having the machine we’ve been able to broaden our horizons and it’s proving to be both time- and cost-efficient.’

He added: ‘Charlie from Finlay Plant Northern supports us on site and his opinion is trusted. We did not even have to spend time viewing suitable machines, Finlay Plant Northern found it, viewed it and delivered it to us.’

At Stainton Quarry, the 883 is producing sizes ranging from single-size 150mm down to 40mm, +150mm oversize, and 40mm down to dust.

The heavy-duty yet compact machine is designed to work as a primary screen in quarries, but is equally capable of dealing with demolition, C&D recycling, landfill, topsoil, sand and gravel, and coal. It can also be used as a secondary screen fed from a crusher.

Charles Nairn, a director of Finlay Plant Northern, part of the Finlay Group of companies, said: ‘We are really pleased that Stainton Quarry is getting excellent value from their first machine with us. It is helping to transform their operations and supporting business growth.’
