Finlay Central’s space saving solution for transfer station

A North Staffordshire waste disposal company has invested in an innovative space-saving solution for its transfer station.

Tidysite Skip Services, which has its headquarters in Chesterton, Newcastle-under-Lyme, has bought a new Terex Finlay J-960 from Finlay Central, part of the Finlay Group of companies.

The fourth generation, family business took delivery of the machine last year.

With over 25 years’ experience in the industry, Tidysite Skip Services accepts a wide range of waste, from commercial, general household and metals, to building rubble, garden refuse and soil.

Committed to providing a specific solution for each job, the business provides mini, midi, builder’s and factory skip hire, as well as site clearance and low loader, hiab, mini digger and 360-degree excavator hire.

The J-960 will be working at the company’s transfer station, processing incoming inert demolition waste and hardcore derived from the skips.

The plant will also be available for hire as well as offering it as part of a package deal, incorporating their own highly-experienced operators along with an excavator and wheel loader for demolition, recycling and quarry work.

Andy Hampton, Tidysite Skip Services, said: “The crusher joins our expanding fleet and we’ve introduced it to our new site.

“It’s been a big step for us, but it means that we no longer have to hire a crusher and we can process material whenever we need to.

"We can now accept more material from new and existing customers, as well as having additional recycled products on offer.”

A 30-tonne, aggressive mobile jaw crusher, the J-960 is the most compact in size in the Terex Finlay range, making it the ideal machine for both small and medium sized operators’ areas, where space is limited.

Although smaller, the performance of the Terex Finlay J-960 is not compromised.

Features include a proven direct drive single toggle jaw crusher, to offer high capacity with large reduction capacities, as well as a heavy-duty hopper with an integrated vibrating grizzly and pan feeder as standard.

The option of selectable discharge to either the by-pass conveyor or main conveyor, also maximises the performance of the plant as well as reducing the wear on the chamber by removing fine material before it enters the jaw.

Neil Bailey, Sales Director at Finlay Central, worked closely with the company to introduce the Terex Finlay J-960 to the site.

He said: “The J-960 is a proven, highly regarded jaw crusher that’s been around for years.

“The size and weight of the machine means it can be put onto a low loader and be working on a job in no time.

“It’s the ideal machine for Tidysite Skip Services – its compact size reduces the amount of space it takes up in their transfer station.

“We’re really happy that we’ve found a machine that suits their business needs so well.”

Andy added: “Neil Bailey was brilliant when we were purchasing the machine.

“He trained our operatives to use the machine safely and how to obtain the best results.”
