Balers

Here you can see photographs and videos and hear memories of Scrap Metal Balers made by Fielding and Platt.

These machines compress scrap metal into "bales" (cubes) so that it can be easily stored, transported, and recycled.

If you remember designing, machining, fitting, installing or maintaining any of the Balers here please share your memories of working on them. You can do this by clicking on the machine you worked on, scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on the words Add a comment about this page.
