Company’s Grizzly two-ram, 200 hp baler is designed to use up to 50 percent less power.

March 17, 2009

Harris, Peachtree City, Ga., has introduced the Grizzly two-ram baler, touting it as “the most energy efficient two-ram baler in the market.”


The company says the Grizzly “is new from the ground up,” and in a news release describes the new model as “a high-force, twin-motor baler model that draws about 40 to 50 percent less power than other 200 hp two-ram balers.”


Because of its low energy requirements, Harris has declared the Grizzly T100 240-PF as “the world’s first green baler.”


The baler can take on a variety of material with shear and baling forces of 200 to 240 tons and ram face pressure of 186 or 283 psi, according to the company.


Additional features of the Grizzly touted by Harris include:

·         Robust frame construction with one-piece side walls, no welded joints, two-inch thick bale chamber floor and end wall and AR 500 replaceable liners

·         The patented externally adjustable Smart knife™ system

·         The Combo Door™ (bale separation and oversize release door)

·         Highly energy-efficient flooded suction pump hydraulic system; and

·         Self-aligning clevis-mount hydraulic cylinders.


The Grizzly is designed to process aluminum and tin cans, high-grade paper, corrugated cardboard, solid waste, wooden pallets, PET and HDPE plastic, appliances, newsprint, aluminum sheeting, siding and extrusions, copper, radiators, wire, some non-magnetic ferrous and select ferrous materials.


“We are very excited to introduce the Harris Grizzly two-ram baler,” says Bob Pfeffer, VP of Sales for Harris. “If you are interested in lowering your operational costs (electrical bills), yet not sacrificing production, Harris has a bear of a baler for you.”


Harris designs, manufactures and supports scrap processing, recycling and waste handling equipment. More information on the company is available at www.harrisequip.com.
