A Marathon Vertical Baler is precision-built for ease of use and maintenance-friendly access. Features such as the side-mounted, self-contained power unit, front-facing panel box, and feed gate interlock system all add up to a reliable baler. Your baler 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 against the wall. Wire guides eliminate the need to go behind the baler for a complete front tie-off system. A Bale Made light illuminates when a bale is made to notify the operator when it is time to eject the bale, and a lockable electrical disconnect can be added for local Lock-Out/Tag-Out.
