Within the United States marketplace, SMAG/Peiner has been represented by Peiner USA, Inc. Different businesses such as Waste to Energy, Scrap handling, Steel Mills, Bulk Transfer Facilities and numerous other material handling facilities are presently depending on our grabs and buckets to get their jobs done.
The design philosophy at Peiner has always revolved around providing grabs that deal with the largest volume of material versus grab dead weight. The typical handling ratio for Peiner grabs and buckets is roughly 60/40, meaning material dead weight of 60 percent versus grab dead weight of 40 percent. This translates into transporting greater quantities of materials faster. There is less wear and tear on the crane structure and its related parts. By combining high quality materials and innovative design with manufacturing, the weight ration that is desired is attained.
Grab sizes would vary from 1 cubic yard or less to more than 50 cubic yards in order to meet the needs of the client. Peiner USA Inc. also offers a complete spare parts facility and service facility for the models sold within the USA, as well as the addition of brand new grabs and buckets.
