Terex Finlay adds screener after extensive testing

After two and a half years of testing, Terex Finlay has added a fifth heavy duty screener to its range of quarrying equipment.

The new 873 model joins the current range of Terex Finlay heavy duty screeners: 863, 883+, 883+ Spaleck and 893.

Over the past 30 months, the 873 has been extensively tested in a range of aggregate, demolition and recycling, compost and slag applications throughout Ireland, UK and mainland Europe, Terex Finlay said.

The forward facing inclined modular configuration screenbox has a 3.7m x 1.5m (12ft x 5ft) top deck and a 3.7m x 1.5m (12ft x 5ft) bottom deck giving a total screening area of 14.4m2. Depending on the working application of the machine, hydraulic adjustment can be used to vary the angle of the screen box between 13° and 19°. The top deck of screenbox can be fitted with a variety of screening media including; tines, bofor bars, punched plate and mesh. The bottom deck can be fitted with mesh or cascade fingers.

The hopper has a 7m³ (9.16yd³) capacity as standard with a drop rear door for use in conjunction with a mobile crusher.

The machine is equipped with three hydraulically folding discharge conveyors allowing for maximum stockpiling capacity and associated benefits of rapid set up and tear down times.
