Large, high capacity, heavy-duty compactors are ideal for industrial and commercial applications where large volumes of solid waste are generated. A conveniently located transfer facility will eliminate the need for unnecessary trips to the landfill by intermediate collection vehicles resulting in fuel, maintenance, and labor cost reductions. Packing into large compaction containers or transfer trailers may also reduce dumping fees. Transfer compactors are built tough for the high demands of transfer stations or heavy industrial applications. These compactors can be mounted on a stand to compact directly into the transfer trailer. Extended snouts can also be added to aid in clean break-a-ways.
