When you’ve got tonnes of greywacke to crush, you need a crushing setup that is fit for the job. Greywacke is hard and abrasive, making it pretty tough to reduce down. Hy-Tec Quarry has all the right equipment, but the right equipment isn’t the only thing they need; they need the right liners to be able to break down the material, that’s where Foothills Steel Foundry come in.
Since 2010 HyTec have been choosing to use Foothills cone & jaw liners because they out-perform the other liners on the market. Hy-Tec also needed a jaw plate with a solid end, opposed to a tooth or comb style plate.
“The solid end plate gives the jaw a better and longer wear life for the Greywacke material we deal with. It was fantastic that Foothills went to great lengths to re-design the heavy-duty jaw for the Extec C12 crusher we run, so we have the perfect liner for our crusher.”
When asked about the quality of the Foothills wear parts, Paul O’Connor, Quarry Manager stated: “We have used another 5 or 6 different wear part suppliers over the years, and Foothills are by far the best. Their wear parts are better
than the OEM parts and that’s why we will not shift now we have found Foothills.”
Knowing their customers maintenance schedules is big part of being able to efficiently supply to demand, it’s something that makes Foothills stand out.
“We only have one tertiary cone at Hy-Tec, and so we change out our liner every 4 weeks or so, Foothills know our schedule and always have stock ready for us. Recently we changed things at Hy-Tec and we added an extra Cedarapids MVP380 cone crusher, Foothills didn’t immediately have stock of the cone liner we needed but Terry worked it so that we had what we needed as fast as possible, and that is all we can ask, and now they are a stock item for us. Its that kind of service that keeps us coming back”
“Terry and his team always do the right thing by us and I like that. We like to be loyal with our suppliers and because he’s always going above and beyond to try and help us out, we’ll always choose Foothills.”
“I can’t say any more except that the product is excellent, the sales process is good, and Terry is good at communicating and maintaining our relationship – we are happy and I’d happily recommend Foothills to people in our Industry.”
