LEFORT launches first ever track-mounted shear/baler/loggers
New Crawler machine debuts at ISRI 2016
LEFORT recently announced the release of the first ever track-mounted shear/baler/logger, which debuted in North America at the 2016 ISRI convention in Las Vegas.
LEFORT's new line of Crawler machines are controlled remotely; meaning only one operator is needed to control the machine and its complementary material handler. These self-propelled machines are immediately operable once arrived at the scrap yard, with no foundation required, and can move within the scrap yard with ease, from one pile to the next. Plus, with a compact design, these units allow for simple road transport, on a standard trailer. According to LEFORT, this robust, powerful and practical machine is the perfect solution for increasing production, while saving time and money. LEFORT's Crawler shear/baler/loggers provide cutting force of 660 to 1,000 tons, production rate of 15 to 30 T/hour (shearing) and 25 to 30 T/hour (baling).
“We have engineered the perfect machine for our customers all around the world that have large scrap yards and multiple scrap piles. These shear/baler/loggers on tracks complement our product line and we can now answer every customer’s request, whatever their needs. We have started to show these machines in our factory to our visitors and the interest is exceptional,” says Christian Lefort, CEO of LEFORT.
