Marathon® AST-220 Stationary Auger Trash Compactors are easy to use and maintenance-friendly. They have no hydraulics and fewer moving parts than conventional compactors. The auger delivers superior compaction, which results in fewer container pulls, and reduced facility traffic. The round opening holds material, which means less separation spillage than a conventional compactor.
The AST-220 single-auger compactor can be installed directly at a dock door, eliminating the need to go outside, resulting in labor and forklift savings, increased productivity, and employee efficiency. This durable, high-performance auger will provide years of dependable performance.
Easy to use and maintenance-friendly
Always moves material forward; Materials will not build up behind the augers
Higher payloads on materials such as OCC
Heavy-duty construction allows for the processing of materials such as skids and pallets
Eliminates all hydraulic oil
Low deck height is better adapted for dock installations
The heavy-duty construction of Marathon auger compactors makes them the perfect choice for tough waste such as skids, pallets, and wooden crates. Quick processing and superior volume reduction can save both time and money.
Marathon highly recommends using the optional Round Opening Container Adapter Plate. This option is quickly and easily added to a standard rectangular container opening, and helps to ensure clean container break-away with the least possible spillage of any stationary compactor.
Equipped with an integral cart lifter, the AST-220 offers an economical and safety-conscious solution for a wide variety of waste material handling applications.
Bayne Thinline® cart lifters work with standard two-bar roll-out carts and can lift up to 750 lbs. Lifters have a durable, powder-coated finish that can stand up to the elements.
The AST-220 is the perfect choice for applications requiring a tipper system. These tippers can extend the benefits of compaction to all areas of operation while keeping equipment investments to a minimum. Carts or containers can be located at individual waste generation sites within the operation, and then emptied into the compactor with the cart-tipper option.
