Sims Crane & Equipment recently completed a job at Trademark Metals Recycling, LLC in Ocala. The biggest machine in the yard is the car shredder, which shreds an entire car and breaks down the pieces to sort them out for recycling. As you can imagine this machine gets worn down by the large amounts of metal, steel and scrap that moves through it on a daily basis. Sims Crane brought in its 175 ton Grove all-terrain crane to help replace the safety cover of one of the components that is placed in a major artery of the large shredder. This needs to be done about twice a year, and this was Sims Crane’s second job out there this year.
