What are the concrete pad requirements?

Preferred dimensions of the concrete pad are 10'-0" wide and a length of 5'-0" greater than the length of the compactor and container. It should be of minimum 3,000 PSI concrete steel reinforced, 6" thick. It is preferred that the concrete pad be flush with the surrounding ground level. Note: Containers with four ground rollers must be installed on a level pad.


To provide accessibility, concrete pad should be positioned to allow 2'-0" between machine and building wall if installed parallel with building. Allow a minimum of 45' of clear space from end of pad for container handling vehicle.

Note: The clearances given are minimums. Your installation may require greater clearances depending on the site and the hauling equipment that will be used.
