Wastequip, a leading North American manufacturer of waste handling equipment, has launched the 6030HDB cardboard vertical baler, which was designed with durability, efficiency and ease of maintenance in mind.
The new unit helps increase operator productivity and safety with the addition of standard features, such as a lift gate with safety interlock that lifts automatically after compressing the material and a full bale detection indicator with an auto shutdown feature. Easy-to-use controls include a side-mounted power unit installed at eye level, which makes for easier monitoring and servicing. Featuring a more durable NEMA4 electric panel that protects from water and dust to ensure longer service life, the new model also boasts redesigned retaining teeth on the door and back wall to minimize spring-back and increase bale density to maximize return on recyclables. Operators can rest easy with the standard Automatic Maintenance Scheduler (AMS) designed to alert operators when preventative maintenance is due, reducing disruptive and costly downtime.
The 6030HDB is also sized for both convenience and power. The unit has a large, 27-inch feed opening for easy loading, a transport height of 96 inches to ensure the unit will fit through standard doorways and a low ergonomic load height of 49 inches.
This new model will replace the existing baler model, offering these new standard features, easier operation and maintenance all at a lower price point.
“The new 6030HDB vertical baler is more operator-friendly than existing models and illustrates our commitment to continuous product improvement and to expanded cardboard recycling,” said Kirk Warren, director of product management for the steel division of Wastequip, in a statement. “The new baler enhances ease of use and operator safety, all at a significantly reduced price point, which should help encourage increased recycling.”
