Capital Materials strives to create value for their customers, and the equipment used to get the job done is an integral part of the equation.

At Modern Tech Equipment, we understand Companies like Capital Materials are facing many new obstacles, such as rising fuel costs, ongoing supply chain challenges, inflation, and labor shortages.  These companies are looking for equipment – and an equipment partner – they can count on to support them through these ever-changing times.

“In our companies, we pride ourselves on our intensive maintenance practices.  But even with good maintenance, there are certain brands that just prove to be more reliable than others.  Having tracked crushers and screens that you can still use 9 years later, day in and day out, at the same production levels as when you purchased it gives you confidence in a brand.”

-Chris Williams, Vice President of Operations – Capital Aggregates

Finlay tracked Mobile Jaw Crushers are renowned for their capabilities in the reduction and sizing of aggregates for construction materials.  The Finlay J-1175 tracked jaw crusher is a high performance and aggressive mobile crusher. The machine incorporates a heavy-duty variable speed VGF and integrated prescreen to give optimum performance in quarrying and mining applications.  With a hydrostatic drive, it offers reversible operation for clearing blockages in its robust Terex 42” x 30” driven single toggle crusher.  Finlay Jaw Crushers are designed to meet the toughest demands of primary crushing applications with their impressive power, reliability, and proven performance.

“The fuel savings alone is astronomical.  Low wear, maintenance, and reduction in fines for farther processing of the material made the purchase of our 2nd Doppstadt shredder a logical decision.  Modern Tech Equipment, our local dealer, along with the support of Ecoverse, the Doppstadt distributor in the USA, have given excellent backup service and support even in this current climate.”

President, St. Louis Composting

“Modern Tech Equipment Owner, Micheal McCusker, and Regional Sales Manager, Doug Hill, have personally been there for us the entire time. They have been helping us train multiple employees to run the machine, helped us with maintenance and the purchase of the most efficient impact bars and screens, and helped install the T-Link system and weigh belts. We know they stand behind what they sold and will help us with it for years to come!”

“After running this machine in compost, mulch and topsoil — if everyone knew what this machine could do, they would have one.”

“Of all the turners we explored, only the Backhus resulted in the windrow being taller after you passed over it. We would see our piles at 6-7 feet going in, and a good 9 feet tall afterwards because of all the air being put into it. “

“The best part about all of the different features of the trommel is you can control your belt speed and your drum speed and the fuel usage, of burning minimum fuel. As of now, we are running around 2 gallons/hour and that has been a great thing for us.”

“I am really happy with the way the SM726 was how it handled the Rooflite material. Going from our old method to this new method, we had a dramatic increase in bags, which is amazing from where we came from. That was the biggest benefit. “
