Excavator and loader customized for scrap yard

Excavator and loader customized for scrap yard
JESCO, a New Jersey construction equipment dealership, recently customized a John Deere 450DLC excavator with a shear and a 544J loader with forks and specialized foam filled tires for Fortune Riverside, a local scrap yard.

JESCO enhanced the 450DLC’s Genesis990 Maxx shear capabilities with a special hydraulic setup that will more efficiently utilize the machine’s hydraulic system during shear cutting operations. This hydraulic setup balances the work load between both hydraulic pumps. According to operators, shear cycle times became quicker while maintaining maximum working pressures. In addition to the 450DLC machine, Fortune Riverside also purchased a new John Deere 544J Z-bar linkage wheel loader customized with six-foot Al-Jon auto forks and Primex smooth L-5 foam filled tires. The foam tires will provide a longer and reliable life cycle than standard rubber tires, while working in the scrap yard. “Both customized machines will greatlyenhance productivity and efficiency at our scrap yard,” states Nick Lui of Fortune Riverside.

Riverside Scrap Yard, located in Rahway, New Jersey, has been in business for over 50 years and was recently purchased by Fortune, a company founded in Brooklyn, and which now owns over 20 scrap yards throughout the U.S. and Asia.
