Marathon® Trash Compactor PreCrushers

Shrink disposal costs – Get up to 30% greater compaction results than with a standard trash compactor!

Marathon Trash Compactor PreCrushers eliminates “light loads” of pallets, crates, large boxes, and drums that fill your compaction container with air. The packing ram moves through the charge box with a high level of force that effectively crushes everything against the PreCrusher’s vertical steel wall. The wall is then raised and the ram fully extends, compacting the refuse into the attached container. Uniform compaction is achieved throughout the receiver container. Every stroke of a trash compaction pre-crusher is a crushing compaction stroke. The results: fewer trips to the landfill!

The RJ-450 HD/PC/High-Volume, RJ-575 HD/PC, and the RJ-575 EHD/PC are fully automatic. After pressing the “Start” button, the compaction ram crushes the material against the heavy steel wall in the charge chamber. The steel wall then automatically lifts and the crushed material is re-compacted into the receiver container. The PreCrusher then resets itself to await the next load.

Perfect for:

  • 55-gallon steel drums
  • Wood pallets
  • Wood crates
  • Spools
  • Industrial waste
  • White goods
  • Turnings
  • Other hard-to-destroy materials

Shrink Your Disposal Costs with a Marathon PreCrusher

Get up to 30% greater compaction results than with a standard compactor!

A Marathon PreCrusher eliminates “light loads” of pallets, crates, large boxes, and drums that fill your container with air. The packing ram moves through the charge box with a high level of force that effectively crushes everything against the PreCrusher’s vertical steel wall. The wall is then raised and the ram fully extends, compacting the refuse into the attached container. Uniform compaction is achieved throughout the receiver container. Every stroke is a crushing compaction stroke. The results: fewer trips to the landfill!

PRECRUSHER Features & Benefits

  • Ideal for crushing bulk waste such as 55-gallon drums, wooden pallets, and skids
  • High-force crushing ram
  • Vertical steel crushing wall
  • Self-cleaning gate
  • Ideal for high hourly volumes and continuous-feed applications

Precrusher Features

The High-Force Crushing Ram: moves through the charge box, effectively crushing everything against the vertical steel wall. The wall is then hydraulically raised and the ram extends a full 13″ into the compaction container on the RJ-575 HD/PC / RJ-575 EHD/PC, and 12″ for RJ-450 HD/PC.

The guided packing ram movement is supported by guides, which reduces friction, improves compaction, and extends the life of the ram.

While in the DOWN position, it serves as an effective crushing gate to eliminate “light loads” of material that would fill your container with air.

The Marathon PreCrusher Self-Cleaning Gate has a beveled design that prevents crushed materials from sticking to the door.

The Marathon PreCrusher Low-Profile Design: enables the units to be shipped fully assembled.

The PreCrusher charge box, sides, ram top, floor, and faceplates are specially engineered for heavy-duty industrial applications.

Tongue-and-groove flooring prevents thin materials from becoming trapped under the ram. Optional side tongue and groove also available.

A Programmable Controller standard on automatic PreCrusher units, the controller simplifies operation and eliminates many relays and limit switches.
