The Magnum 5 series compactors are versatile as well as powerful, and have been utilized in many types of industrial installations. Consolidated has the experience to help you set up a refuse handling system that will be efficient and cost effective for years to come. Give us a call to discuss your own particular needs.
The Magnum 5 compactors can also be ordered in extra heavy-duty models, for installations requiring the ultimate in power and rugged construction.
In addition the Magnum 5 can be ordered with an optional "Pre-Crusher" Unit. The Pre-Crusher is a hydraulically operated steel door that lowers into the compacting chamber, to concentrate the full force of the compacting ram to be applied to the trash. The door is then automatically raised, and the crushed items are then compacted into the receiver container, on the next cycle. The entire process can be set with the DR100 automatic multi-cycle controls, for efficient operation. Just push the button, and it's gone. These pre-crusher units can crush and flatten 55-gallon steel drums, old wooden pallets, and even metal appliances, such as refrigerators or stoves, etc. Some manufacturers use them to crush rejected product, to prevent items from being pilfered from the trash pile, etc.
McClain Compactors are noted for their strength, reliability, quality construction from prime steel, heavy duty hydraulic components, and of course safety in operation.
The McClain DR100 Hi-Tech Control Panel is included, featuring solid state electrical and hydraulic controls, and known as the most reliable in the industry.
