GB 1111F 2512 Fully Automatic Baler, Boise Idaho
June, 2014

Our GBaler runs 5 days a week 12-14 hours per day. We run on average 200 tons of recyclables through the GBaler each day. It is a key asset to the steady production of our plant and it is imperative to have an efficient and reliable baler in our system as we cannot afford downtime. We went from a 2 ram baler to the GBaler single ram arid shortly after it’s installation we added a sort system. We are now processing curb side recyclables in addition to commercial waste. In almost 2 years of operation we have had less than 2 days of down time due to breakdowns. We have worked through some situations ourselves, as we have a fully capable maintenance department onsite. The machine is very adjustable either with a mechanical adjustment or by adjusting parameters in the touch screen. It is simple to maintain with grease fittings throughout and the sliding side panels make access simple and convenient. To date the Sheer gap is still less than 1/8 of an inch and hasn’t been adjusted since coming from the factory. With rollers on the ram and hardened roller tracks we have seen very little wear on the machine to this point.

When we have needed parts, service or technical support the Unlimited Recycling Resources team is very prompt to answer or they call right back if we leave a message. Being 800 mites from their office parts can be overnighted or found locally and they are happy to help us troubleshoot, diagnosis and solve problems over the phone.
