A fleet of Terex Finlay C-1550 (direct feed) cone crushers and inclined 693+ and 694+ screeners are proving their worth at Tillicoultry Quarries.


Tillicoultry Quarries has taken delivery of two C-1550 cone crushers, 693+ and 694+ inclined screens in the past eighteen months from Finlay Scotland Ltd for their hard rock quarries, sand and gravel, asphalt, concrete readymix and recycling operations.

These highly versatile machines are proving themselves across the company’s 11 sites producing high quality value added products with high tonnages to support and meet increased demand for the high quality processed products that Tillicoultry produce.

Wallace Menzies, Managing Director at Tillicoultry Quarries, said: “The operators and site managers are very happy with the new machines and I’m confident that they will continue to increase our productivity and ability to supply our customers with the products they require.”

Offering large reduction ratios and a high output capacity, the Terex Finlay

C-1550 cone crusher features the proven Terex TC1300 cone crusher, which is choke fed with an integrated level sensor, automatic tramp relief and hydraulic closed side setting adjustment to maximise production. To protect the cone, the feed belt is fitted with an automated metal detection and purge system, which minimises downtime by removing metal contaminants via the purge chute.

The Terex Finlay 693+ and 694+ are compact three and four-way split mobile screens that are ideal for Tillicoutry as they are suitable for working in a range of applications including fine sand and gravel fine screening, recycling and quarrying.

Adam Rhind added: “I’ve been extremely pleased with the reliability and powerhouse performance of each of the machines. The ability to redeploy them across our sites is a real benefit to us and typically the machines are operational 30 minutes after they arrive on site. The accessibility for preventative machine maintenance is also an added benefit and the aftermarket support we receive from Finlay Scotland is great. If we need a part or engineer they’re on site typically the next day and if really urgent within hours!”

Morris Wightman said: “The machines are working exceptionally well and playing a key part in operations to ensure high value products are processed with maximum output. We’re grateful that Tillicoutry trusted in us when they made the decision to buy the new equipment, extending our close business relationship of over 10 years”
