Finlay’s J-1160 jaw crusher is now available in NZ

The J-1160 has proven itself globally as a durable and flexible machine, equally at home producing aggregates in a quarry or crushing demolition and asphalt materials in recycling yards.

"With its large under crusher clearance and all-round preventative and serviceability access whatever the application, this powerhouse will make a positive impact on every site it is put to work on," says Gary Payne of Finlay Group NZ.

Heartbeat of J-1160

The crushing chamber can be run in reverse for difficult applications

The heartbeat of the J-1160 jaw crusher is the renowned and aggressive Terex 1000 x 600mm jaw crusher. The hydrostatic drive gives the operator the flexibility of variable crushing speed and the ability to run the chamber in reverse for difficult recycling applications.

Variable speed grizzly

The machine is designed for maximum fuel efficiency, delivering one of the lowest cost-per-tonnes in the marketplace and features Finlay’s updated and larger heavy-duty variable speed vibrating grizzly feeder (VGF) with integrated pre-screen.

The increased screening area and aggressive action help provide a more efficient method of separating and removing fines before entering the crushing chamber. The variable speed VGF ensures continuous choke feeding of the crushing chamber.

Material from the pre-screen can be diverted to a stockpile via the onboard bypass conveyor or join the crushed product on the main belt.

The 5m³ hopper is also available with fitted hopper extensions

The large five cubic metre hopper has fixed sides as standard and is also available with hopper extensions fitted with hydraulic self-locking to provide efficient and faster machine set-up and tear-down times.

Wide main conveyor

A key design feature of the machine is the 900mm wide main conveyor, which can be raised and lowered allowing the operator to perform maintenance functions from ground level and for ease of removal in clearing blockages. The machine is fitted with the Finlay T-Link telematics system as standard.
