RJ-500 Stationary Compactor Standard Features

Up to 76,900 lbs. of compaction force for commercial and industrial applications

Engineered for durability, the strength of the RJ-500 is right where it is needed. The 1/2″ charge box floor is reinforced with nine heavy-duty steel channels, 1/2″ plate ram face backed with 10″ plus 6″ structural channels and extra rugged reinforced sides.

 

Side-mounted power units offer convenience and ease-of-maintenance, eliminating the need to go inside the compactor for most repairs

 

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-500 and RJ-500HD 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′ (3.96m) of conduit, the controls can be located for operator convenience.

Bayne Cart Lifter

AVAILABLE WITH BAYNE THINLINE® CART LIFTER

Equipped with an integral cart lifter, the RJ-500 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-500 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.
