addition of the automobile shredder to our equipment line in 2005, all ferrous
scrap possible is processed through it. It uses a 2500 horsepower motor
that runs at 600 rpm, with more than 1,000 more horsepower in other motors
driving the auxiliary equipment and conveyors.
The farming industry and
the agri-businesses of Northern Iowa and the Midwest yield obsolete farm
equipment. Local manufacturers also contribute scrap to Shine Bros. Corp., as
well as a large dealer trade and citizens interested in recycling.
