GS11 Baler/Logger/Shear Installed at Baker Iron & Metal Co.

Peachtree City, GA, July 29, 2009, 2009: The Harris GS 11 Baler/Logger/Shear was installed May 2009 at Baker Iron & Metal, Lexington, KY. According to Don Mynear, Safety and HR Manager for Baker Iron & Metal Company, "We have a couple of Harris machines including an HRB® and Harris equipment does the job, plain and simple, and that is the main reason for purchase of the shear."

The GS11 and GS series Baler/Logger/Shears offers horizontal mounted pumps, and independent load tables, allowing for more visual inspection of material by the operator when material is dumped into the charging box. Harris incorporates a simple- to- use OIT control panel with basic commands, operational information and diagnostics. Production reporting is also included. Harris GS uses a TRUE clamshell box for superior trapping and sizing of bulky material. This machine was designed to deliver a new generation of performance to keep pace with a company's sustained growth and provide overall lower operating cost per ton.
