A demolition company is powering ahead to meet increasing demand with the help of new plant featuring the latest in telematic monitoring.
Cheshire Demolition, which has its headquarters in Macclesfield, has taken delivery of a Terex Finlay J-1170 jaw crusher from Finlay Central – part of the Finlay Group of companies.
The jaw crusher joins a fleet of Terex Finlay machines at the company, including a Terex Finlay 883 screener and a Terex Finlay J-1160.
Cheshire Demolition has specified the T-Link Telematic System as an additional feature for their latest acquisition, which enables the plant to be monitored remotely off site as required.
The technology allows operators to review the performance of their machine in areas including fuel consumption, belt speed and tonnage for optimum performance.
Neil Trueman, a director at Cheshire Demolition, said: “As a company we’ve seen rapid growth in the last five years, so we’ve bought in another Terex Finlay J-1170 to help us keep up with that demand.
“Between 2000 and 3000 tonnes of material come to our yard in Macclesfield every week so it’s important for us to have the machinery that can help us stay ahead of the game.”
Working at the company’s reclamation yard in Macclesfield, the Terex Finlay J-1170 is processing aggregates brought to the site from demolition jobs and the company’s waste transfer station.
It’s producing MOT and a 6F2 product at a rate of 2000 tonnes a day, which is then sold from the yard or delivered out to the region.
A compact and aggressive tracked jaw crusher, the Terex Finlay J-1170 features a heavy duty variable speed VGF and integrated pre-screen, and boasts excellent production throughput in quarrying, mining, demolition and recycling applications.
It provides a robust hydrostatically driven jaw chamber enabling operators to achieve high capacity with large reduction ratios – and the configuration can be set up specifically for processing construction demolition or quarrying applications using the hydraulic release chamber option.
Neil Partington, sales director at Finlay Central, has worked with Cheshire Demolition for six years and has specified all the Terex Finlay machines the company has bought.
Neil said: “What makes this different from the other jaw crushers Cheshire Demolition has had is the T-Link Telematic System.
“This technology enables the plant to be monitored from anywhere around the world.”
Established in 1984 by brothers Stan and Phil Swindells, Cheshire Demolition is one of the North West’s largest reclamation yards, offering a wide-range of services for demolition projects, either as a principal contractor, main contractor or a subcontractor.
The company, which has 80 different plant and employs 50 people, also operates a skip hire service, with more than 500 skips in operation.
Neil Trueman added: “We keep going back to Finlay Central because of their service reliability. That’s really important to us.
“They supply us with robust machines too.”
