Fully developed, tried and trusted technology, long life and low-maintenance sturdy construction are the outstanding features of compactors. Due to their high compaction force, the volume of the materials to be compacted will be reduced considerably. The compactors can be combined with containers for all common lifting devices. The compactor and container can be fixed to each other by a coupling device which is simple to handle. If furnished with the appropriate parts or machines (eg shifting devices, tipping devices, suction devices, etc.), the compactors can be adjusted to every kind of application.
