Yea I've purchased a few Demtec Attachments... They do the job for us and most local Hydraulic Shops can get us the parts no problem. There is a video on our facebook page of a Demtec Processer in action you can judge for yourself.

I realize that this thread has been inactive for a while, but I was wondering if you (Chaplinandsons, Interstate Demolition) have had any more experience with your Demtec shears.

We have recently found some for sale, but they are calling them "Demac" - though they are obviously the same as the Demtec that I have found.

I hope I am allowed to post these - if not, please take them out of this post...

Here is one on Kijiji (a Canadian website)

And another one on ebay

Are these the same as the Demtec? Did you ever figure out where to get parts? ANY information would be appreciated!!!

Thanks

We bought a Demtec Shear couple years back and we've actually had very good luck with it and had no problems, been used in a scrap yard almost every day.
It seems well built but I guess most German products are. The boys down at the shop have gotten the parts from some dealer in Washington State and we have always got any parts we needed.
There was a sticker on the shear for where to get parts from. I will ask the boys down at the shop to give me the details and I will post it here when I get around to it. We saved money over buying a labounty so it was a good deal for us :)

I believe this may be a german company that was bought out by another German sounding company that has an office in Canada. They had a booth at last years NDA and seem to sell through Richie Bros auctions. Check the 2008NDA exhibitor list.

No manufacturer's tags or labeling on the processor is a reason not to buy at auction.

I too have learned to only stick with the name brands that have good references and domestic spare part support. A bargin is no bargin if you cannot get parts. Many companies claim that they stock parts until you need that particular part!

Good luck with your search

I remember when you first posted this and I looked forever trying to find out something and never did. Maybe some one here in the auction business can tell us who makes it, although its Demtec I am assuming it's made by someone else and released under Demtec.

I purchased a Demtec densifier for a 345 several years ago at a Yoder Frey auction. Got it for 3K what a deal. I spent over 9K putting it back togeather after 2 hours of use. I spent hours trying to find Demtec on line and everywhere else, I never found any contact info. Bottom line is you get what you pay for and these auctions sell these cheap knock off's for so little because that's all there worth. I purchased a new Rockland densifier for 30K 2 years ago and I have not had any problems at all with it. Stick with the name brands for dealer support and quality craftsmanship. At least the scrap metal prices were up when I unloaded my Demtac at the scrap yard.
