Small Compactors

Cram-A-Lot small stationary compactors (2 to 4 cubic yard capacities) are designed for low to moderate volume waste generators. They are perfect for applications such as retail stores, distribution centers, warehouses, shopping malls, and other businesses that generate low to moderate volumes of dry waste, and would like to enjoy the benefits of compaction of their waste stream. These machines can also be used to isolate and compact recyclable materials such as cardboard and plastic where a baler is not suitable or practical. Our products are designed to require minimal maintenance and repair to limit the disruption to your operations. Our hydraulic power units are designed and manufactured "in house" so we can maintain complete quality control from system design through manufacturing completion. Each machine is optimally designed for its intended application, with steel reinforcement in the areas that see the highest force, for long term durability. All Cram-A-Lot compactors feature a floor riding ram design, which minimizes the maintenance associated with guide shoe adjustment, and prevents trash from migrating behind the presshead. This attention to robust design ensures that your compactor will be built to last for years to come.
