LEFORT America in Recycling Product News

According to Florida-based Lefort America product experts Julien Lefort, procurement & project manager, and Jon Miller, GM, Lefort shear/baler/loggers are suitable for processing most metals and demolition scrap while ensuring low operating cost and versatility.

 

“Scrapyards are looking for solutions to save time and cost,” says Julien Lefort. “As a result, we have developed and patented a shear/baler/logger in a crawler version, which allows the operator to easily bring the machine to the piles of scrap, as opposed to losing valuable time moving scrap to the shear. This has been a real success in the U.S.”

 

Lefort adds that their shear/baler/loggers are also engineered for extreme conditions. “Most components are produced in-house and are therefore perfectly tailored to work in synergy,” he says. “This ensures machine robustness and reliability. Our shear/baler/loggers are also available with a fully automatic lubrication system, which helps productivity and avoids damage to the machine.” In addition, according to Lefort and Miller, their crawler units are equipped with hydraulic components engineered by Lefort, as well as a high-performance engine, making them the most powerful and quickest shear/baler/loggers on the market.

 

“Selecting the right machine depends on the type, rate and volume of material being processed, but also where the machine will work,” continues Lefort. “Thanks to a very large range of machines, we can accommodate any operation, from the smallest to the largest scrap yard facilities, with a product that will help bring success and growth to a recycler’s business.”

 

Available in 660-, 770- and 1,100-ton cutting force models, Lefort’s patented Crawler shear/baler/loggers are designed to offer the utmost in scrapyard mobility. A flip of a switch on a remote control converts the machine into crawler mode, allowing the operator to move to the scrap, instead of moving the scrap to the machine. Used properly, this ability allows the creative operator to substantially reduce processing time and minimizes the number of times scrap is touched prior to being loaded for transport to the mill. Used to its highest degree, this design allows one material handler operator to process scrap and load trucks at the same time, while potentially touching the scrap only two times in the process. Another key feature of these SBLs is Lefort’s patented wraparound box (TS Box). The large curved lids of this design fold metal into a log before it is cut to length by the shear or further compressed into a bale.

 

Lefort shear/baler/loggers are available in three other configurations: stationary, portable and towable, all suitable for processing most metals and demolition scrap, while ensuring low operating cost and versatility.
