Terex Finlay 683 Supertrak for Dewsbury Sand & Gravel
New mobile screener helping recently established sand and gravel business to flourish in West Yorkshire
WEST Yorkshire-based Dewsbury Sand & Gravel are increasing productivity with a new Terex Finlay 683 Supertrak mobile screener, supplied by Finlay Plant Northern.
Launched just over six months ago by Newlay Concrete, the sand and gravel firm is part of long-established Hargreaves Group GB, who produce a wide range of aggregates for the construction industry, as well as decorative aggregates for the commercial market.
Dewsbury Sand & Gravel’s team has been working with the Finlay Group for two and a half years, having previously hired plant from Finlay Hire.
Shaun Kelleher, group operations manager with the company, said: ‘I’ve worked with Terex Finlay screeners on previous projects and they’ve always proved their worth. They are versatile and reliable machines and the service package that the Finlay Group offer is second to none. We couldn’t be happier with our investment – no other machine would have been up to the job.’
Combining scalping, screening and stockpiling capabilities in one self-contained unit, the Terex Finlay 683 Supertrak features a 3.65m x 1.5m (12ft x 5ft) screen and is capable of handling materials such as sand and gravel, limestone, crushed stone, coal, topsoil and demolition waste.
Maximum on-site mobility is provided by hand-held remote control of the machine’s twin-track undercarriage, while standard features include: a remote tipping reject grid; hydraulic tensioning of the bottom screen deck mesh; and three on-board hydraulic folding conveyors.
Running 10h a day and producing in excess of 700 tonnes of sand and gravel, the machine receives raw feed from a washing plant and produces sizes from 20mm and 10mm down to grit sand for companies in the West Yorkshire area.
