Terex Finlay launch new variant of C-1540

Terex Finlay C-1540 cone crusher

Latest high-output tracked mobile cone crusher offers functionality and serviceability

THE new C-1540 direct-drive cone crusher – the latest addition to the Terex Finlay range of tracked mobile cone crushers – has been developed to satisfy the requirements of aggregate producers or contract crushers looking for a high-output machine that provides large reduction ratios and an excellent cubical shape in the surface ore mining and aggregate industries.

The machine incorporates the proven Terex 1000 cone crusher that can accept an all-in feed and features fuel-efficient direct variable-speed clutch drive and ‘on the fly’ hydraulic closed-side setting adjustment with electronic monitoring system.


A key feature of the cone chamber is an overload protection system with automatic reset that allows uncrushable material to pass through and be discharged efficiently from the machine, thereby protecting the chamber and minimizing downtime.

The feed-in box to the cone chamber is fitted with an ultrasonic level sensor that is calibrated to the feeder to ensure that the chamber is consistently choke-fed for maximum throughput and minimum crusher wear.

Together with advanced load-sensing auxiliary hydraulics to maximize plant efficiency, Terex Finlay say all these features combine to give operators an efficient and aggressive crushing action, high performance and low cost per tonne.

The standard 5 cubic metre (6.5 cubic yard) hopper/feeder on the plant has been designed with a low feed-in height so that the machine can be fed directly by primary crusher, excavator or shovel.

A key feature of the hopper/feeder is its standard automated metal-detection and purge system, which has been designed to protect the cone chamber and reduce downtime by removing metal contaminants via a purge chute.

‘We are continually communicating with our customers through several forums and the introduction of this machine is a direct result of this ongoing process,’ said Alan Witherow, product development manager with Terex Finlay.

‘This exciting new model builds upon the success of our current C-1540 pre-screen model, C-1545/C-1545P and C-1554 cone crushers. The heart of this new model is the Terex TC-1000 cone crusher, which is renowned for its flexibility, versatility and outstanding performance.’

He continued: ‘The functionality and serviceability of the machine were key design criteria of the plant from the outset, and we have received only positive feedback on these characteristics. With the introduction of this new model, we now have one of the most comprehensive range of tracked cone crushers in the market place.’
