Industrial Stationary Container Packer Typically Installed in Multi-Storied Buildings Ideally Suited for Those Situations with Shortened Room Lengths

The Model 520T5 Container Packer is a fully automatic, hydraulically operated trash compactor capable of displacing up to 35 cubic yards of trash per hour, packing into a front or rear load compaction container. The machine body and ram body are 1/4″ steel. The hopper is constructed of 10 gauge front and sides with a 1/4″ rear impact plate to take the force of falling refuse. The Model 520T5 utilizes a 5 horsepower power unit.

Through the innovative use of two cylinders mounted crosswise within the machine, the overall length of the machine can be shortened without sacrificing the compaction chamber size.

The trash compactor accepts trash received from a trash chute and compacts into a two cubic yard front or rear load compaction container. The machine operates automatically by an electric eye, providing unattended operation until the container is full at which time it is removed from the machine and wheeled outside for pickup. This system reduces handling of waste and requires less custodial attention, translating into savings for owners and property managers. Also, because the volume of trash is significantly reduced during compaction, fewer pickups by the hauler are required, cutting disposal costs.
