Terex Finlay welcomed equipment dealers to Jacksonville, Florida, for a two-day event covering the latest offerings in portable processing equipment.

A component of the event was an equipment demonstration at an asphalt plant, showcasing improvements to the existing product line and a look at the new 883+ triple shaft, a mobile scalping screening plant.

The triple shaft version of the 883+ offers more aggression in the screen box than the single- or double-shaft versions, according to Jonathan Lockhart, the lead design engineer on the 883+ for Terex Finlay. Additionally, the screen box discharge end can be hydraulically raised about a foot and a half to make for efficient screen media access.

Lockhart, who says the versatility of the 883+ is a major sticking point for producers, notes that this latest version is more fuel efficient now that it runs at 1,800 rpm. Also, an electric engine option is available on the 883+.

The combination of the I-140 impact crusher and 684 three-deck screening plant was also on display at the demo.

According to Alan Witherow, lead technical support and product manager for Terex Finlay, the main improvement on the I-140 is increased width throughout that allows for better material flow in the machine. Increased engine power, an increased feeder height to the camber, and the ability to lower the main conveyor for easier maintenance are other improvements.

“Flow of material is something we have seen from concrete recycling and from being on site,” Witherow says. “You want to keep the machine running.”

The 684 three-deck screening plant allows for a quick setup time and is ideal for contract crushing applications, adds Damian Burns, senior design engineer for Terex Finlay. No tools are needed for setup of the 684, which is easily transportable and features side conveyors that can fold upward.

“One of the big things was the ease of setup,” Burns says. “The side conveyors development addresses that. If you are mobile or a contractor, this is an easy machine to set up in a short amount of time.”
