The Marathon® Untouchable VIP® trash compactor for frontload and rearload garbage trucks, was developed from a growing need for superior compaction in a small footprint. Originally developed for the narrow alleyways of Chicago, it’s the perfect trash compactor for areas with limited space where compaction is necessary.
The Untouchable VIP is a real space saver – with more than 13 tons of crushing force, it reduces the contents of many open containers into one Vert-I-Pack container.
Use for front- or rear-load applications
Triple-interlock safety system
The Untouchable VIP is designed with the user in mind and has no heavy or clumsy lids to open and close.
The side-mounted power unit offers easy access for maintenance on the motor and electrical components on the Untouchable VIP.
The Integrated Driver Light on the Untouchable VIP illuminates green to signal the driver that the container is okay to be removed and dumped, making operation quick and simple.
The Untouchable VIP keeps liquids off the ground, which helps control odor and rodents. It also prevents weekend overflow, which eliminates the need to schedule those expensive weekend pickups
The optional security kit (rear feed units only) enables the unit to be fed from inside the building, eliminating the temptation of employees to put merchandise into a box, stash the box in the trash container, and return later to retrieve the merchandise.
The operator inserts the key and turns it to the “UP” position. When the ram moves to the up position the door can be opened.
The large opening allows even a 30-gallon container to be emptied easily. The new waste material is dumped into the cavity left in the container by the previous ram position.
After feeding, the operator turns the key to the “pack” position and then removes the key. The ram will cycle automatically to the down position to compact and hold the waste material there until the next loading cycle. More than 13 tons (11,793 kg) of crushing power forces the ram 18″ (457mm) into the container.
The mechanical door interlock prevents the door from being opened at all times except when the unit is in the proper feeding position. A second interlock prevents the unit from cycling (operating) when the door is in the open position. The third interlock prevents the unit from functioning when the container is not in the proper position.
Equipped with an integral cart lifter, the Untouchable VIP 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 Untouchable VIP 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.
Options are an essential part of virtually any compactor installation. Whether the options are for safety issues, convenience, operation efficiencies, or monitoring systems, waste-handling equipment can be fitted with a variety of customizable features to meet the demands of the application. Marathon compactor options include several categories such as: container-fullness measuring systems, usage-measurement systems, cycle-control systems, power pack options, odor-control systems, and steel options.View Compactor Options
