BlokPak 3000 Transfer Station Compactor

The BlokPak 3000® is the largest Marathon transfer system compactor. It compacts waste against a vertical gate, forming a 10′ (3 meter) log in the compaction chamber. Each log is then ejected into the transfer trailer, and the process is continued until maximum payload is achieved. When the trailer is full, the BlokPak 3000 can continue to be fed while changing trailers, saving valuable time. This unique design eliminates the need for expensive ejection type trailers.

The BlokPak 3000 forms 10′ (3m) logs of densely packed waste.

The BlokPak 3000 has a 5′ (1,5m) ram penetration. This ejects the final log into the trailer with very little spillage.

The BlokPak 3000 has a compaction chamber that densely compacts the waste before it’s ejected into the transfer trailer. This enables much lighter-duty, open-top trailers to be used.

Marathon M-Series Transfer Station Compactors are built tough for the high demands of transfer stations or heavy industrial applications. These compactors can be mounted on a platform to compact directly into the transfer trailer. Compactors come standard with extended snouts to aid in clean breakaways.
