Terex makes a move in Malaysia



Terex MPS has managed to relocate a range of crushers in a remote forest reserve in Sabah, Malaysia, highlighting the durability of the machinery.  

The equipment was originally installed 150km away from Sabah and hadn’t been used for more than two years over the course of the pandemic. However,  a restart was flagged and Terex was called in to relocate the machines.  

The plant was a wheeled jaw WJ1175, including a Terex JW42 primary jaw crusher, as well as a Terex wheeled cone model WC1000 containing a Terex TC1000 model cone crusher.  

The combined weight of the equipment was more than 70 tonnes. 

Terex MPS regional sales manager Benjamin Tong said these specific models were well suited to the customer’s needs.  

“The versatility of our wheeled plant was the main reason that the customer chose Terex originally,” Tong said.  

“The IV Deck screen also makes it easy for the customer to cope with the market demand for four different aggregate sizes.” 

The equipment now sits 2500m above sea level overlooking Mount Trusmadi. 

“The service support provided by Terex MPS team was also highly appreciated by the customer, which resulted in a quick turnaround of the plant and in turn production,” Terex stated.  

“Now sitting at the top of a new site some 150km from the old site… the Terex MPS systems are working together as one, once again, after years of sitting idly by.  

“The one-of-a-kind optimisation of the machines, along with their premium quality components has saved the customer time, labour costs and overall relocation costs during a time when the market is at its most challenging.”
