WCL Quarries invest in new Terex Finlay J-1170

Terex Finlay J-1170 jaw crusher

Company continues to invest in fleet to meet increased demand for aggregate waste and recycling services

WCL Quarries have purchased a new Terex Finlay J-1170 tracked jaw crusher to replace a J-1160 model, for greater productivity at Ketley Quarry, one of the company’s three sites.

Mark Deadman, director of WCL Quarries, said: ‘At WCL Quarries, we are continuously upgrading and investing in new equipment in order to meet our customers’ demands for more quality aggregates at sensible costs.


‘Our latest purchase is one of nine Terex Finlay machines we have bought to assist with faster processing, as part of our growing business.’

Consuming only 23 litres of diesel per hour, compared with previous crushers that used 28 litres per hour, the new J-1170 has increased fuel efficiency and is helping WCL Quarries to reduce their carbon footprint.

The J-1170 crusher feeds into a Terex Finlay 683 Supertrak, to split quarried material into three products for different applications.

Specified with a range of bespoke features, WCL Quarries’ J-1170 has been fitted with additional guarding, an extended telescopic side conveyor, as well as radio remote control.
