Features for Virtually Any Application

Marathon vertical cardboard and paper balers can also be equipped with optional features that add even more efficiency and ease-of-use. An automatic bale ejector that activates when the bale door is opened is available. The ejector does not extend beyond the wire guides, enabling the unit to be placed directly against a wall. Wire guides eliminate the need to go behind the baler, allowing for a complete front tie-off to be performed in front of the unit. The optional “Bale Made” light illuminates when a bale is made, notifying the operator when the bale is ready for ejection. A lockable electrical disconnect can be added for local Lock-Out/Tag-Out.
