Hydrostatic shredding with Terex Ecotec: Finlay Waste and Recycling

The Rural City of Wangaratta, like most communities across Australia, faces major challenges with the collection and disposal of waste. Most notably, a growing population and ageing landfill.

As such, it put out a request for tender for a new, diesel powered, rubber track mounted, slow speed shredder in 2019.

Council received 12 submissions, with the final tender awarded to Finlay Waste and Recycling.

Finlay delivered a Terex Ecotec TDS820 Slow Speed Shredder to Wangaratta City Council in February this year.

According to Brian Bowman, council’s Waste Operations Team Leader, while the quality of the TDS was integral to council’s decision, Finlay’s committed approach to customer support was the standout.

“We get a phone call from Finlay once every two weeks to see how the shredder is going. Their back-up service is exceptional,” he says.

Designed with independently driven two meter long shafts, the double-shaft slow speed shredder enables excellent performance in even the most challenging of applications.

Key features include a hydrostatic drive that provides increased protection against contamination and allows for bi-directional shredding.

The shredder’s independent gearboxes enable each shaft to run separately, reducing material wrappage for effective shredding operations.

Additional features include a tipping feeder that increases feed area, and hopper extensions that provide increased capacity in bulky applications.

“We made sure that we did our homework to get the right machine for job, and we’re glad that we made the right call going with Finlay. It’s an ideal piece of equipment for our operations,” Bowman says.
