The ISRI 2019 exhibition in Los Angeles has been a big success for many recycling equipment suppliers – including Sierra International Machinery. The company from Bakersfield, California unveiled its latest piece of baler technology, the REB-X Press, a mobile two-ram machine.

‘This has probably been the best show ever for us,’ Sierra’s president and owner John Sacco tells Recycling International as he smiles from ear to ear. ‘We had already found a customer for the unit on display here and, during the two-day expo, we have sold two more units.’

Easy to manoeuvre   

Sacco is proud to introduce and deliver ‘a brand new innovative machine’ for the recycling industry only a year after introducing the REB-4, another two-ram model that has been a big hit. ‘The REB-X Press is going to give waste and scrap recyclers throughout the world the flexibility to manoeuvre the baler wherever they need to process material.’

A true multi-tasker

Made at Sierra’s manufacturing facility in Jesup, Georgia, the REB-X is claimed to be the ideal solution for various applications. Examples include when a group of facilities needs a baler on a rotational basis or during maintenance shutdowns or for demolition projects, disaster clean-up, landfill projects, or in rural locations.    

The REB X unit showcased at the ISRI Expo will also be on display at the upcoming Waste Expo in Las Vegas, after which it will be shipped to its new owner, Trademark Metals Recycling in Florida.
