New Terex Finlay machines for Gower Plant Hire
Company doubles production capacity with the purchase of two C-1540 cone crushers
GOWER Plant Hire have ramped up productivity at Garn Bica Quarry, in Porthyrhyd, Carmarthen, by adding two new Terex Finlay C-1540 cone crushers to their machinery fleet.
Established in 1996, the company offers site clearance services across South Wales in addition to crushing and screening, plant hire and materials, such as recycled aggregates, concrete and topsoil.
Supplied by Finlay Plant SW, the high-performance C-1540 cone crushers are already proving their worth – supporting Gower’s commitment to offering customers large reduction ratios and a higher-output capacity.
The energy-efficient and productive machine incorporates the Terex 1000 cone crusher, which is choke fed and features an integrated level sensor, automatic tramp relief and hydraulic closed-side setting (CSS) adjustment.
To protect the cone, the feed belt is fitted with an automatic metal detection and purge system that minimizes downtime by removing metal contaminants via the purge chute.
The reduced length of the new C-1540 machine is suitable for crushing in a system where the oversize material is recirculated to the crusher. For quick set-up time, the Terex Finlay unit benefits from an advanced electronic control system and a galvanized walkway for ease of maintenance.
Mark Jones, quarry manager for Gower Plant Hire, commented: ‘I believe that the Terex Finlay C-1540s are the best crushers in the market to cope with the applications we are processing. I’m extremely pleased with their reliability and powerhouse performance. The accessibility of the machines is an added benefit.’
Gareth Johnson, managing director of Finlay Plant SW, added: ‘The crushers are delivering considerable value to Gower Plant Hire. Their ability to cope with the material that is being put through them is impressive and the shorter model is great for when they’re recirculating the oversize.’
