Sims Pacific Metals Grapple Cylinders

Sims Pacific Metals is New Zealand’s largest scrap metal recycling company, with eight locations nationwide. Sims Pacific Metals operate scrap metal yards in Auckland, Hamilton, Napier and Wellington in the North Island and Nelson, Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill in the South Island.

Grapple cylinders are an essential piece of equipment in scrap metal yards and get a hammering working in incredibly tough conditions. From crushing cars and lifting bales of scrap metal, grapple cylinders are the workhorses of the scrap yard.

Sims Pacific Metals rely on Jonel Hydraulics for all their hydraulic cylinder servicing. Jonel repair and recondition their grapple cylinders and restore them to peak operating condition, as well as manufacturing new custom built grapple cylinders.

“Sims Pacific Metals have had a long term relationship with Jonel Hydraulics. The hydraulic cylinders on our Metal Recycling Material Handlers and Car Shredder System often take a physical beating -and we require a quick and efficient cylinder repair turnaround service.

Jonel Hydraulics has done exactly that consistently and proactively. Dealing with them has been hassle-free in that they will come in and pick up the cylinders and once repairs are done -deliver them back. Dean and his team are easy to deal with and are always ready to go the extra mile when required.”
