Scrap Expo: How to treat your balers, shears, loggers like a sportscar

Sep 22, 2022

Photo courtesy Tony Vasquez Scrap Expo: How to treat your balers, shears, loggers like a sportscar At Scrap Expo, experts at Sierra International Machinery discussed the importance of proper maintenance of shears, balers and loggers. September 22, 2022 For John Sacco, president and co-owner of Bakersfield, California-based Sierra International Machinery , and Ricardo Diaz, lead technician at Sierra, maintaining shears, balers and loggers is exactly like maintaining a Ferrari. During Scrap Expo, which took place Sept. 13-14 in Louisville, Kentucky, Sacco and Diaz discussed why proper maintenance and care are vital to operations in a sessions titled Logger/Baler and Shear/Baler/Logger Maintenance and Two-Ram Baler Maintenance. “The price of a Ferrari is the same price as [shears], two-ram balers and conveyors,” Sacco said during the session. “If you won’t keep your Ferrari [in poor condition], why would you keep a piece of equipment you’re going to spend more money on like that?” Diaz said that the cost of repairs varies depending on the size of the repair and the time it takes to ship parts. It could range between $500 and $80,000, and a broken logger/baler or shear/baler/logger could cause up to three weeks of downtime. To ensure these machines stay in shape, Sacco and Diaz advised performing basic preventive maintenance on them daily, weekly, monthly and annually. Some basic preventive maintenance tasks that operators need to have on their checklists include: checking engine oil levels; checking structural welds for cracks; and checking clamps, jack pins and the engine’s coolant. Ensuring basic preventive maintenance tasks are preformed is the responsibility of a scrap yard’s management team, Sacco said. In addition, Diaz suggested that operators inspect these balers, loggers and shears while they are running to get a full view of how they move. He said to look at areas including circuit boxes, doors and pumps. He stressed that even if a smaller part on these machines break, that small break can snowball into something worse if left unchecked. Preventive maintenance also means being prepared to replace something if it breaks. Sacco said that operators should have at least one replacement part for parts of machines that see the most wear. For shear blades, he advised having two replacements on hand because the time it takes to ship shear blades has increased since the start of the pandemic. Proper employee training and testing could also be the difference between clean and damaged equipment. Sacco said companies should perform drug tests on their equipment operators, stressing that they should never allow someone under the influence to operate machinery to ensure the safety of both the employees and the equipment. Equipment storage and the layout of the scrap yard also play an important role in equipment longevity. Sacco and Diaz said balers, loggers and shears should never be parked next to scrap piles or drums since that would pose a fire risk. Additionally, Sacco and Diaz said the environment a machine is stored in determines how it should be maintained. For example, they said machines on concrete surfaces may not get dirty as quickly as those that are placed on the ground. Diaz said operators also should check gauges that come with their machines. He advised against operators removing these gauges from the machines since those are helpful for making diagnostic tests. Sacco and Diaz added that operators need to be willing to invest in their equipment, noting that it’s better to spend a little bit of money on their equipment now rather than a lot of money on repairs later. Connect Work Tools, part of Superior, Wisconsin-based Exodus Global, has announce that Caleb Summers has joined the company as a field service technician. “I’ve worked with Caleb in the past and knew with his breaker experience and work ethic he would be a great fit for our Connect team,” says Brian Hawn, Connect Work Tools vice president of service. “I am excited to see him in the field working with and training our customers.” Summers most recently was a breaker specialist at St. Louis Bobcat/Doosan and brings with him a breaker knowledge and equipment repair knowledge, and is certified in automotive technology. “I am honored to be part of Connect Work Tools and Exodus Global companies as a team member,” Summers says. “Everybody has been super nice and welcoming me into the family.” Summers will support Connect Work Tools’ customers with installation and repair of the company's hydraulic attachments throughout the United States. Connect Work Tools product support and breaker specialist Johnnie Gibbons says, “Caleb is knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. We’ve worked together in the past on various projects. I believe he will bring a lot to our team.” Connect Work Tools , based in Cleburne, Texas, was founded in 2015 and offers attachments including hydraulic breakers, compactors, rotating grapples and pulverizers for the construction, demolition, recycling and mining industries. Connect Work Tools also offers rebuild services and reconditioned equipment. Exodus Global’s other divisions include ShearCore, BladeCore and OilQuick Americas. Proving that large-scale manufacturing and innovation are alive and well in America’s heartland, Battle Motors, New Philadelphia, Ohio, has announced the company’s expanded production facility is open and fully operational. A game-changer for the company, the factory’s size has increased significantly—from 125,000 square feet to 325,000 square feet—or more than five football fields. Located in New Philadelphia, the facility is where  Battle Motors  manufactures diesel, clean natural gas (CNG) and electric vehicles (EVs) for vocational vehicles, including waste collection trucks. Founder and CEO of Battle Motors, Michael Patterson, says the plant’s expansion is the “most ambitious” project the company has undertaken. “We have made the investment in the expansion of the physical plant, acquired the right technology, and most importantly, have made a commitment to the people of Central Ohio by already adding 200 employees to our workforce and creating high-tech jobs at a truly momentous time,” he says. “It’s game on.”  The modernized facility will maximize the throughput of the company’s multiple production lines and transform operations as Battle Motors scales up to meet the demands of the evolving transportation landscape. From additional production lines, shipping bays and receiving docks to the latest technologies used for fabrication, paint application and vehicle assembly, Battle Motors hopes to lead the heavy-duty truck industry in the nationwide deployment of EVs. The company invested $32 million in the facility to jumpstart fabrication, production capacity and vehicle delivery. The investment enables the team at Battle Motors to manufacture its full line of trucks with innovative feature sets including a best-in-class powertrain paired with the Battle Motors “Smart Cab,” featuring a digital instrument cluster and proprietary software, RevolutionOS . “Reaching this milestone is definitely an achievement we’re very proud of,” Battle Motors Chief Operating Officer Cody Boggs says. “Our team of local labor and contractors minimized the disruption that can be expected with an expansion of this size, and our production numbers throughout have been really impressive. Working within the limitations of our original factory, we still hit record numbers month-over-month, reaching our 2021 [production goal] by July of this year.”  Battle Motors executives are more optimistic than ever about future production, which will be driven by the new facility’s continuous assembly flow and automation upgrades and powered by vertical integration capabilities including 3D printing, laser cutting and CNC machining. The company owns additional acreage adjacent to the new facility where the build-out of new assets is planned, including research and development and prototype fabrication spaces, as well as a test track. The University of Missouri is advancing plans to demolish a former hospital it owns, with a university board intending to keep the property for an as yet undetermined redevelopment purpose. According to the Columbia Daily Tribune, the University of Missouri System Board of Curators has approved a $10 million demolition plan for a building currently known as the Mizzou North building. The structure was built in 1940 as the Ellis Fischel State Cancer Hospital. In its more than 80 years in existence, the building also has operated as the Ellis Fischel Cancer Center and then became the Mizzou North Building when the university acquired it. It has housed university Museum of Art & Archaeology and Museum of Anthropology collections in recent years. The eight-story building has 223,000 square feet of space, according to the newspaper. Redevelopment plans for the land beneath the building have not been announced, although funding is tied to the university’s Strategic Space Reduction Plan. The timing of the demolition process is not yet clear, with the Tribune reporting the plan calls for the building to be taken down by January 2024. Bids sought by the University of Missouri System Procurement Services are posted here . The Sims Metal business unit of Australia-based Sims Ltd. says the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted its approval to issue a construction permit to the company for a proposed advanced emission control system at its auto shredding plant in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago. “We are pleased that after a very thorough due diligence process that the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency has now endorsed Sims Metal’s plan to enclose our metal shredder at all emission points and add state-of-the-art advanced emission controls by approving our request for a construction permit,” says John Glyde, Sims Metal global chief operating officer. “Sims Metal continues to invest in upgrades at, and improvements to, the Chicago facility in Pilsen as we lead by example with best practices for other industrial employers. These significant upgrades to our environmental control systems will allow us to continue being a good neighbor. This $15 million investment in advanced controls has only been made by a handful of facilities nationwide – and none to a mid-sized metal shredder like ours. This investment in Pilsen is a win for all local stakeholders and the City of Chicago.” About 15 miles south of the Sims Pilsen facility, the owners of a shredding plant have been engaged in a lengthy legal process to open an auto shredding facility. This February, the city of Chicago denied Southside Recycling  its final permit, preventing the plant from operating. The company and its Ohio-based ownership group, Reserve Management Group (RMG), said at the time it will challenge that decision “using all available channels.” RMG has been planning and investing some $80 million in its site since 2018 .
