Pre-Crusher Compactors

Ideal for dry, bulky waste

Pre-Crusher Rentals

Designed for large, difficult to compact trash, our pre-crushers crush bulky waste items before compaction, effectively reducing waste volume and increasing load weights by 30% more than with a standard compactor alone.

Shown here, consider a Marathon Model RJ-450HD/PC for weekly
volumes of 500 cubic yards (382 cubic meters) or more of industrial plant solid waste or recyclable materials. Ideally suited for high hourly volumes and continuous-feed applications. Your pre-crusher application can be custom fite with additional options like security chutes, cart dumpers, specially designed hoppers, remote controls, hand and toe rails, tread plate tops for walk-on or drive-on applications, and electronic compactor controls and monitoring systems.

NowRush Recycling Solutions specializes in providing waste handling and recycling solutions for even the most complex applications. We offer competitive pricing for leasing and rental programs for businesses of all sizes. For more information or to rent a pre-crusher, call us.

RJ-575 HD/PC Features

  • High-Volume High-Force Crushing Ram: Moves through the charge box, effectively crushing everything against the vertical steel wall. The wall is then hydraulically raised and the ram extends a full 13-inches (330mm) into the compaction container.
  • Low-Profile Design. Enables the units to be shipped fully assembled.
  • Guided Ram. Supports and guides the packing ram, which reduces friction, improves compaction and extends the life of the ram.
  • Heavy-Duty Construction: The charge box, sides, ram top, floor and face plates are engineered for heavy-duty industrial applications.
  • Vertical Steel Crushing Wall. While in the DOWN position, it serves as an effective crushing gate to eliminate “light loads” of material that would fill your container with air.
  • Self-Cleaning Gate: Has a beveled design that prevents crushed materials from sticking to the door.
  • Tongue and Groove Flooring: Prevents thin materials from becoming trapped under the ram. Optional side tongue and groove also available.
  • Programmable Controller: Standard on automatic units, the controller simplifies operation and eliminates many relays and limit switches.

Benefits of a Commercial Trash Compactor

A trash compactor for your business has many benefits.

Improve Waste Efficiency

A trash compactor minimizes overall volume and size by 50% to 90%, which helps reduce the amount of waste that ends up in the landfill.

Reduce Hauling Costs

Trash compactors help reduce the frequency at which trash haulers need to pick up your waste on site, which further reduces carbon emissions.

Prevent Theft and Scavengers

Due to their isolated systems, trash compactors offer businesses waste security and help to control issues with rodents and other pests.

Increase Usable Space

Utilizing a trash compactor will eliminate your need for multiple waste containers and free up space on your property for daily operations.
