New Terex Finlay machine for Ashcourt Group

Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck screener

Hull-based contractor purchases Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck to help increase recycling capacity and productivity 

ASHCOURT Group have taken delivery of a new Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck screener from suppliers Finlay Plant Northern. The recycling firm says the innovative machine will increase capacity at its site in Hull by providing the ability to process material all-year round. Another benefit is the mobile plant features a heavy-duty Spaleck vibrating screen, which is said to optimize productivity of high-moisture materials even in damp conditions.

Paul Dobson, site manager for Ashcourt, said the new 883+ Spaleck would make a big difference to the business. ‘Although we’re using exactly the same process as before, we’ve found that we are producing a far better product, both for the market and for use on our own projects since the Terex Finlay plant arrived on site,’ he commented.

‘The screener can still run when it’s wet and even when the material is soggy the machine has never blocked up – that’s quite unusual with a 10mm bottom deck. The meshes are easy to change; it’s just a simple machine to operate.’

At the heart of the plant is a robust German-designed screen box that features high-tech processing capabilities for handling materials such as recycled waste, slag, shredded wood, compost and soil. The top deck (50mm) of the screen has been specified with uniquely designed rubber mats, while the 10mm bottom deck features Flip-Flow technology.

Ashcroft are using the Terex Finlay 883+ Spaleck to process soil down to 10mm at a production rate of up to 100 tonnes/h. The machine joins an already strong fleet of equipment, including a Terex Finlay 863 and 883, excavators, dumptrucks, telehandlers and crushers.
