Marathon® Trash Commander™ TANK® Series Compact Stationary Trash Compactors are short, yet powerful compaction machines. Available in two capacities, the compact size of the TANK stationary compactor makes it ideal for dock applications. It takes up to 35% less space than other compactors of similar capacity, and the two crossed-cylinders produce powerful compaction, equal to larger-body compactors.
Each model Trash Commander TANK stationary compactor is available in two compaction forces with 10 hp or 15 hp power units.
The TC-300T is the latest in the Trash Commander TANK series of short, yet powerful stationary compactors. With crossed-cylinder technology, it is the most exciting development in the waste compaction industry. The three cubic-yard capacity compaction chamber is incorporated into a body that is only 9′ 4 1⁄2″ long. This enables greater throughput capacity in applications where space is limited, such as retail outlets, department stores, malls, large restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping centers. The large clear-top opening accommodates large bulky items and delivers greater throughput capacity. The TC-300T TANK is ideal for dock-feed applications. With our standard four-sided, rear-feed hopper, there is no need for special walk-on tops or guard rails in many applications. A three-yard compactor that can fit into the space of a conventional two-yard unit.
The compact but powerful TC-220T was designed based on user suggestions. The TANK compactor maneuvers well in those applications where space is limited but demand for maximum compaction performance is not.
The TC-300T TANK (foreground) compared to a standard Marathon 3 cubic-yd. compactor shows the difference in overall length — yet the clear-top opening of the TANK compactor is the same as the larger RJ-325. The picture also illustrates that if the TANK compactor is fitted with our standard four-sided, rear-feed hopper, there is no need for tread plates or guard rails in many applications.
A tough heavy-duty power frame includes a 1/2″ thick compaction chamber floor and ram-face plate, and liberal use of heavy hot-rolled channels, angles, and bars. The breaker bar is a 6″ x 8″ x 1″ thick solid piece of hot-rolled angle steel.
Separate from the compactor/container, the Marathon Remote Power Pack remains free of damage caused while hauling to and from disposal sites, and stays free of problems caused by landfill dust. There are no electrical connections to make or break, and two simple-to-use, hydraulic quick disconnects couple the power unit to the packing head. All Marathon Remote Power Packs are built in-house to our quality standards, and each unit must pass a series of stringent tests before it can be shipped with the selected compactor.
Its compact length enables it to fit snugly against any structure, perfect for tight areas. The compact size and 48″ loading height eliminate the need for platforms, hand and toe rails, and tread-plate tops in many applications.
An optional doghouse offers a totally enclosed charge box with heavy-duty latches.
Equipped with an integral cart lifter, the Trash Commander TANK 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 Trash Commander TANK 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.
