Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) August 3, 2009
As the market prepares for recovery, many recycling companies are jumping at rarely available second-hand equipment. "This downturn was unique in that many categories of equipment were still difficult to locate and acquire second hand," says Scott Ferry, marketing manager for Alan Ross Machinery (a leading used machinery dealer in North America).
Past recessions affected the availability of all types of recycling and scrap processing machinery. Today's market is unique in that certain types of equipment remain difficult to find used. "Alligator shears, scrap handling magnets, and specialized processing machinery remains in short supply second hand" says Scott. "Many of our recycling customers are moving quickly to purchase these types of used machinery as the opportunity arises". Recently Ross received resale rights to a rare Harris TG2101 ferrous metals baler. The unit can bale an entire automobile and produces approximately 30 bales per hour. "Its more than just saving 50% or more from new price," says Scott "customers are jumping at the chance to add a specialized niche capacity that puts pressure on their competition."
