.Be the first to see the new Lefort Conkest 300T
The Conkest 300T and Conkest 600T (pictured) are at RWM
Join Lefort at the RWM Exhibition, stand 5S70 and see the new Conkest 300T
non- ferrous metal shear / baler, and the portable model of the new Conkest
600T ferrous metal shear / baler. Both models are being transported to the
RWM Exhibition giving customers a chance to examine these new machines at
leisure. The stand, which is sited in hall 5, should be easy to find and it
is near the Networking Hub, in front of the main entrance to Hall 5 entrance.
The Conkest 300T shear / baler is the latest Lefort design and will be exhibited
for the first time anywhere in the world at RWM.
Primarily designed for processing non- ferrous metals the 300T shear head
will make light work of shearing all non-ferrous and some ferrous metals.
The baling cycle is equally impressive for a small machine producing, compact,
dense bales in most non ferrous metals. At under eleven metres in overall
length the Conkest 300T is small in size, but big in performance. Each machine
features a 4600mm length box, a 300T cutting force with a 680mm wide cut and
produces bales 680 x 500 mm x variable length. With a diesel or electric power
unit and remote control it is ideal for many applications.
The second machine on the stand is the new Conkest 600T. The model displayed
at RWM is the portable version with hydraulic legs for self loading from a
transport vehicle, although mobile and static versions of this machine are
also available. The 600T has a box length of 6000mm, a 600T cutting force
with an 800mm wide cut and produces bales 800 x 600mm x variable length. With
hydraulic legs this machine is semi-permanent and can easily be moved around
the yard of from site to site. Join Lefort on stand 5S70 at RWM between the
15th and 17th September to be amongst the first to see these new models.
Ward Recycling take delivery of the first 1000T Portable Shear/Baler

sold so successfully in the UK. Fitted with 4 hydraulic lifting legs the machine
can be jacked up in the air and taken away to a new site on a step frame trailer.
There are no tyres to check or lights to repair, this machine can move straight
out on the road with very little preparation. The new 600 HP diesel engine
now fitted as standard to this range means the 1000T cutting cylinder is just
as fast as the old 900T and can achieve up to 30T per hour production with
a 5ft cut. The latest software program means the machine is more efficient
than ever with updated cutting modes and automatic cycles.
