Compact crusher helps Eagle Recycling to soar


DENNY-based Eagle Recycling has taken delivery of a new McCloskey J40 compact jaw crusher following a successful demo.

The firm, part of the Purvis Group, purchased the 2.5 metre wide machine, which is described as being ideal for tighter spaces where more mobility is required without any compromise on power.

Eagle Recycling operate from a number of locations throughout central Scotland and was originally  founded as an inert recycling centre in 2004. Over the years, the business has expanded into plant hire, crushing and screening. The firm also runs a numer of tippers and volumetric concrete trucks. 

Eagle is involved in recyling inert, road construction and demolition waste to produce MOT type 1 and recycled type 1 materials alongside concrete and recycled washed gravels and top soil.

Chris McKinstry, McCloskey’s area sales manager for Scotland said, “They have been long used to running various competitor machines but upon delivery of the McCloskey, they were instantly impressed by the build quality. The machine performed well throughout the demo and the decision to invest in the McCloskey J40 came easy.”

Features of the J40 include a heavy-duty cheek plate design and ‘enhanced’ deeper jaw box. McCloskey said the 225 HP Cat C6.6 engine and 40” jaw opening is combined with a ‘user-friendly’ control panel with ‘excellent ‘machine diagnostics packed into ‘one highly portable machine’.

Eagle Recycling’s Stuart Bell commented, “The toggle set up and rams for positioning the belt are much better (than previous machines they’ve operated) and the machine is much easier to access, maintain and operate. We have no complaints so far.”
