Marathon

Marathon Equipment Company is the worlds largest manufacturer of industrial waste and recycling equipment.
Compactors & Vertical Balers

Employing a specially designed curved tube, refuse is densely compressed inside the RJ-30, eliminating the need for a special compaction container. Because of the patented S-shaped tube, the RJ-30 achieves higher compaction ratios than any other compactor of its kind. The exclusive design of the RJ-30 discharges a densely compacted log of refuse into any size and type of receiving container. Eighteen to 24″ inch logs of refuse are gravity fed into the container.

Features

  • Marathon’s RJ-30 features a patented curved tube and hydraulic choker that discharges a densely compacted log of refuse into any size and type receiving container
  • The material is compacted in the equipment and not in the container, making unloading fast and easy. The container is not attached to the RJ-30 which also saves time and eliminates spillage
  • The RJ-30 is UL® Listed and manufactured in accordance with applicable ANSI standards
  • The RJ-30 is built tough for years of trouble-free service. The body and ram are constructed of heavy steel plate and the hydraulic power unit (available mounted on the unit or separately) incorporates the latest technology for smooth operation and reduced noise levels
  • The RJ-30 is also available with de-liquefying options to remove high liquid content from waste, saving landfill costs
Commercial & Residential Containers

Marathon’s reliable Octagon Compaction Containers are designed with a contoured end, which creates a rolling effect as solid waste is compressed inside the container. This unique design fills every void and results in a highly dense compaction.

Marathon’s Auger Compactors are easy to use and maintenance friendly. Features such as the short tail for dock feeding, or rear feeding, and the innovative design which eliminates spring back into the auger chamber, all add up to a reliable auger compactor that will provide years of dependable performance.
The advantages of using an Auger Compactor:

  • Increased payloads reduce transportation costs
  • Minimize waste storage space on site
  • Continuous forward auger blade movement reduces waste buildup in charge chamber. There are no cavities in the chamber where waste can accumulate.

Marathon’s Vert-I-Pack (VIP) compactors are ideal for applications where space for a compaction system is limited, the volume of wet waste does not justify a larger system, or a roll-off collection service is not available. This unit is great for shopping plazas, restaurants, cafeterias, fast food locations, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and much more.

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.

Marathon’s Untouchable VIP, developed for the narrow alleys of Chicago, is perfect for areas where space is limited but compaction is required. Because the power unit is on the side of the Untouchable VIP it can be placed almost directly against a back wall. The container is on heavy-duty casters and easily be rolled to an area accessible by waste collection trucks. The Untouchable VIP can be configured for front or rear loader collection vehicles.

The BlokPak 3000 Transfer System is Marathon’s largest transfer system compactor. It compacts waste against a vertical gate, forming a 10-foot (3-meter) log in the compaction chamber. Each log is then ejected into the transfer trailer. The BlokPak continues this process until maximum payload is achieved.  When the trailer is full, the BlokPak can continue to be fed while changing trailers, saving valuable time.
