Third Terex Finlay machine for Cheshire Demolition

Terex Finlay J-1170 jaw crusher

Macclesfield-based demolition firm boosts its fleet with new J-1170 mobile jaw crusher

CHESHIRE Demolition have boosted their fleet with the purchase of a new Terex Finlay J-1170 from Finlay Central.

The machine is the third Terex Finlay machine brought by the Macclesfield-based business, which was founded in 1984 by brothers Stan and Phil Swindells.


Cheshire Demolition have one of the largest reclamation yards in the North West, offering a broad range of services for demolition projects, either as principal contractor, main contractor or on a subcontracting basis. The company also offers skip hire.

The purchase of the J-1170 follows on from the successful introduction of their last purchase from Finlay Central, a J-1160 jaw crusher, and prior to that, a Terex Finlay 883 screener.

Neil Trueman, a director of Cheshire Demolition, said: ‘Initially we bought the J-1170 for the yard, but now the machine also moves from site to site.

‘It’s working well and a very good feature is that we can lower the main conveyor to the floor with the push of a button, allowing the clearance of rebar and blockages.

‘From previous experience we know that Terex Finlay products come with good service and back-up from Finlay Central.’

The J-1170 is currently being used on building demolition sites – most recently powering its way through 15,000 tonnes of rubble to deliver Class 6F2 product at a rate of 200 tonnes/h. This will be used for ground restoration purposes at the site which is to be rebuilt upon.

A compact and aggressive tracked primary jaw crusher, the J-1170 features a robust hydrostatically driven Terex jaw chamber that delivers high capacity with large reduction ratios. The jaw chamber configuration can be set up specifically for the processing of construction demolition debris or for use in quarrying applications.

Other features include a heavy-duty, variable-speed vibrating grizzly feeder (VGF) and integrated pre-screen, giving high production throughput in demolition and recycling applications, as well as in quarrying and mining.

The ability to run the jaw either forwards or backwards is said to make light work of more sticky materials.

Neil Partington of Finlay Central, who has worked for a number of years with the team at Cheshire Demolition, said: ‘We are delighted to continue supporting Cheshire Demolition with plant that has a great impact on the successful operations of the business.’
