Challenger manufactures a wide range of Baling machinery including non-ferrous Balers known by us as a Shear Baler.
Shear Balers are ideal for small to medium sized scrap yards where there is the need for a fairly simple, inexpensive machine capable of handling bulky non-ferrous scrap and to a lesser extent, bulky ferrous scrap. Ideal raw materials are car shells, aluminium scrap, stainless vessels, factory cuttings, etc and in a standard format, they make 300 mm by 300 mm by variable length bales.
A Shear Baler can be manufactured with electric motor driven hydraulic power units or diesel engine driven hydraulic power units and these can be sized to produce cycle times from 30 to 120 seconds.
Shear Balers can be made as static floor mounted assemblies, they can be manufactured on skid frame or they can be trailer mounted with cranes and discharge conveyors to allow them to be used at a number of different sites.
