The Indeco ISS-25-40 has a 360-degree rotation and is rotated in this photo, showing its versatility when shearing scrap and maneuvering around the yard or job sites. That steel beam was cut in half like butter. Paul Uhrynowski (L), product engineer, lends his expertise to Tony Mifsud of Indeco Australia. Indeco employees were treated to a great barbecue lunch prepared by Hog Wild BBQ of Connecticut. Indeco employees look on as a large steal beam is cut in half with Indeco’s steel shears. The Indeco IFP-1250 pulverizer getting ready to work. The IFP-1250’s innovative design features a better grip and improved maneuverability. Also notice the wide opening between the jaws. The Indeco IFP-1250 seen from another angle. The openings on the outside of the jaw allow for concrete and debris to fall out without needing to dump the bucket. Think of it as a waffle iron effect, but with holes. The Indeco ISS-30-60 fixed metal shear is mounted onto a Komatsu. Two Komatsu machines were purchased and mounted with a fixed and rotational metal shear. These two machines are for sale. Indeco knows its compactors including this boom-mounted IHC-75 plate compactor.  Applications include trench and slope compaction along with pile driving and compaction around foundations. Indeco employees and sales representatives were able to shear and pulverize the material shown in this picture. Some pieces were more challenging then others, including the steel rod enforced beams, but the Indeco product line passed the test.

Indeco held steel shear product training in conjunction with its national sales and service meeting Sept. 4 through 6 at its main U.S. facility in Milford, Conn.

All U.S. and Canadian field personnel were on hand for the training, as well as delegates from Indeco subsidiaries in Great Britain and Australia.

Indeco mounted an ISS30-60F (fixed) steel shear on a Komatsu PC300 and an ISS25-40R (rotating) on a Komatsu PC220 for the purpose of field demonstration.

All Indeco personnel gained hands-on knowledge of the steel shear and pulverizer product lines through the operation of the company’s shears in typical applications.

“This year we wanted to take a different, more hands-on approach to our annual meeting,” said Ryan Murphy, director of marketing. “Instead of a purely classroom-type training environment, we felt our people would be best served operating the machines, testing and proving the products for themselves. On day two, attendees got to see the products in varying levels of assembly, being able to truly grasp the design features and the benefits those features bring to the marketplace.”
