LEFORT America commissions a 1100T shear in Canada.

LEFORT America is proud to announce the commissioning of a shear in Canada. Tervita is a leading environmental solutions provider located in Canada. Tervita’s Red Deer facility has purchased a LEFORT SH1100A. 

Tervita operates four scrap metal centers, two in British Columbia and two in Alberta. At the Red Deer facility, Tervita has selected LEFORT’s SH1100A as the latest addition to their scrap processing equipment. LEFORT’s SH1100A is made for the shearing of lightweight sheet metal and average demolition scrap, a stationary machine that is perfectly aligned with this location’s needs. The commissioning of the machine was completed in March, 2018. Jon Miller, from LEFORT America, and two Engineers from LEFORT travelled to Red Deer, Canada to install and commission the machine, assuring that all the components and systems of the shear are properly set up according to the operation of the customer. 

Tervita’s machine was ordered with a Caterpillar Tier 4 final C13 engine rated at 475 HP, an 8-meter box, remote control, and LEFORT’s First Class operator’s cabin. THE SH1100 has 1100 tons of shearing force and a 200-ton pusher ram for best in class densification.
