New Terex Finlay J-1170 for TW Frizell
Haulage and plant hire firm takes delivery of mobile jaw crusher for use at new recycling centre
CREWE-based TW Frizell (Haulage and Plant Hire) have taken delivery of a new Terex Finlay J-1170 as part of their investment in a new £1.5 million recycling centre in Stoke-on-Trent.
Founded in 1968 by Trevor William Frizell, and now run with the help of his son, Joe, TW Frizell (Haulage and Plant Hire) employ more than 70 staff and offer a range of services including plant hire, bulk excavations, labour supply, demolition, site clearance and muckaway, including tipping facilities.
They also undertake groundworks, link-up approval for railway contracts, landscaping, ponds, watercourses (de-silting) and supply quality topsoil and recycled aggregates.
The new plant has been introduced by Finlay Central, part of the Finlay Group of companies, and will eventually will be used at the Stoke-on-Trent facility to process waste concrete into recycled aggregates and MOT Type 1 at rates of up to 200 tonnes/h.
In the meantime, until the new recycling venture opens, the company has contracted out the J-1170 to a brownfield regeneration site in Liverpool.
Trevor Frizell said: ‘We chose this machine because we wanted to invest in the best plant, from a good company. We are in this job for the long haul and therefore wanted the best equipment.’
The Terex Finlay J-1170 is a compact tracked primary jaw crusher featuring a robust hydrostatically driven Terex jaw chamber which provides high capacity with large reduction ratios.
The jaw chamber configuration can be set up specifically for processing construction demolition debris or, alternatively, for use in quarrying applications.
Other features include a heavy-duty variable-speed vibrating grizzly feeder (VGF) and integrated pre-screen, giving effective production throughput in demolition and recycling applications, as well as quarrying and mining.
The machine’s compact size, quick set-up times, ease of transport and user-friendly operational features make it a suitable choice for operators of all sizes.
In addition, the machine’s ability to run the jaw either forwards or backwards helps make light work of more sticky materials.
TW Frizell (Haulage and Plant Hire) also specified the machine with a range of bespoke features, including an extended conveyor to cope with increased stockpile sizes, a dust-suppression unit, a magnetic dirt belt, and radio remote control.
