Cost effective soft rock crushing for Chepstow Plant International


A Monmouthshire based company is offering an innovative solution to soft rock crushing.

Chepstow Plant International has seen productivity soar after taking delivery of a DH4-17 ALLU bucket to crush and screen stockpiled clay marl down to -50mm.

The company has been so pleased with the results they have extended the hire contract with Finlay Hire.

The ALLU bucket, has been fitted to a 25 tonne Volvo EC250 and has proved its worth out on a contract in Leicestershire.

It is achieving results in excess of 100 cubic metres an hour – even though the material is of a highly cohesive nature.

John Carty, Project Support Manager North of Chepstow Plant International, said: “We discussed our options with Finlay Hire and decided on the ALLU bucket.

“Initially we hired the plant for one month but decided to extend this to three due to the fact that it had been so successful.

“We couldn’t be happier and the service and back-up that we have received from Finlay Hire is second to none.”

Finlay Hire, part of the Finlay Group of companies, offers one of the UK’s largest hire fleets of crushers, conveyors, mobile screens and washing equipment.

The sole trader for ALLU products in England and Wales, Finlay Hire supply plant for soft rock crushing and compost shredding as well as screening and aerating.

Established in the 1970’s and now employing over 200 staff, Chepstow Plant International has been working with Finlay Hire for more than ten years – in this time they have both hired and bought plant.

Chris Bell, of Finlay Hire, said: “For soft rock crushing or difficult separation applications, where blockages and contamination are an issue, ALLU buckets are ideal.

“We can offer this solution to customers on every scale, from mini excavators up to 200 tonne face shovel excavators.

“We have buckets to hire or demonstrate and can advise customers on the best model to suit their applications and base machine.”
