RJ-225 Series Features & Benefits

  • Ideally suited for commercial and medium-industrial applications
  • Up to 67,000 lbs. of compaction force on the RJ-225HD
  • Up to 55,000 lbs. of compaction force on the RJ-225
  • Up to 52,000 lbs. of compaction force on the RJ-225 Ultra
  • Tricon Fullness Assurance System
  • Multiple options available
  • IEC motor starter
  • Thicker steel in key structural areas for heavy-duty construction: charge-box floor and ram face, 1⁄2″ steel; ram top, 3⁄8″ steel; sides, 1⁄4″ steel plate
  • TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor
  • Quick-release motor mount on the side-mounted power unit for easy servicing and maintenance
  • TRICON Fullness Assurance System eliminates all but one limit switch. It also produces better compaction ratios by making the ram dwell against the trash, reducing the “memory” and springback. TRICON offers better cold-weather performance and extends the life of the compactor
  • Removable weather cover on the power unit for easy servicing and maintenance

RJ-225 Stationary Compactor Standard Features

Thicker steel in key structural areas for heavy-duty construction: charge-box floor and ram face, 1⁄2″ steel; ram top, 3⁄8″ steel; sides, 1⁄4″ steel plate

TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor with IEC motor starter

Quick-release motor mount and a removable weather cover for the side-mounted power unit allow for easy servicing and maintenance

The RJ-225, RJ-225HD, and RJ-225 Ultra feature the Marathon side-mounted power unit. The power unit offers the convenience and ease-of-maintenance of a remote power pack with the space savings of an integrated power pack. The configuration also eliminates ALL electrical components from inside the compactor.

The packing ram is supported by specially formulated cast-iron shoes which ride on replaceable wear strips. This exclusive design protects the charge-box floor from the full force of the packing ram, extending its life, and dramatically reducing compaction-robbing friction.

The RJ-225 and RJ-225HD feature an advanced, simplified three-button control system. It is key-operated, fully automatic, and contained in a weatherproof NEMA 4 enclosure. Connected to the power pack with 13′ of conduit, the controls can be located for operator convenience.

RJ-225 Stationary Compactor

The RJ-225 is the best compactor value. Built for reliable performance in commercial and medium-industrial situations, it effectively reduces solid-waste material to a fraction of its original size. It is attractively priced and features a 56-second cycle time and powerful 55,100 lbs. maximum compaction force.

RJ-225HD Stationary Compactor

The RJ-225HD is specifically designed for tough waste disposal applications due to its heavy-duty features. The 1/2″ steel plate charge-box floor is mounted on four 4″ steel channels, and has a 1/2″ ram face plate, backed with 10″ channels and incorporated T-1. The 3/8″ ram top is supported by eight heavy-duty formed cross members and heavily reinforced charge-box sides that allow the RJ-225HD to be placed in high-stress areas.

The RJ-225HD is ideally suited for industrial applications such as the disposal of skids and cartons, and recycling OCC (old corrugated cardboard), paper, and similar materials. Electrical components, including the control box assembly, are UL and CUL listed. The 40 1⁄2″ x 60″ charge-box is 33 5/16″ deep to make disposal fast and easy.

RJ-225 Ultra® Stationary Compactor

The Marathon® RJ-225 Ultra stationary compactor is a highly efficient, economical compactor for cost-conscious waste generators. The RJ-225 Ultra provides many cost-saving benefits including labor reduction, fewer collection pick-ups, and a space-saving design. The RJ-225 Ultra is equipped with a side-mounted power unit. The power unit’s configuration eliminates all electrical components within the compactor. It features an operator-accessible reset button for the motor starter, which eliminates the need to access the control box in order to reset the motor starter. The external limit switch reduces maintenance costs.

The RJ-225 Ultra compactor is fully automatic. The operator can simply dump waste into the large 40 1/2″ x 60″ charge-box opening and turn the key. After the compaction cycle is complete, the unit shuts down automatically. Key operation gives the operator absolute control over the compactor operation. The packing ram is supported by intelligently designed cast-iron shoes that ride on replaceable wear strips. This exclusive design protects the charge-box floor from the full force of the packing ram, extending the ram’s life cycle and dramatically reducing compaction-robbing friction.

Bayne Cart Lifter

AVAILABLE WITH BAYNE THINLINE® CART LIFTER

Equipped with an integral cart lifter, the RJ-225 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.

PERFECT FOR TIPPER-SYSTEM APPLICATIONS

The RJ-225 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.
