New compactor from Wastequip

Updated Dec 11, 2014

Wastequip has launched a new self-contained compactor for walk-up or ground-fed applications.

The 265IP Precision Series Compactor is the second self-contained model to be offered in the Precision Series compactor line.

“We’re confident that we’re bringing the world’s best compactors to market, and this new model is a workhorse,” says Kirk Warren, product manager for Wastequip’s technical products division. “After digging through exhaustive research and competitive benchmarking, we invested in designing the Precision Series line to center around application-specific compactors. This new model is perfect for ground-fed operations.”

Like the 265XP model released in late 2013, the 265IP self-contained model features ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) precision-guided ram is suspended above chamber floor for minimal spring-back, near-frictionless gliding, smoother operation, and reduced wear; Large, removable access panel for simple, time-saving inspection, maintenance, and clean-out – up to 33 percent reduction in maintenance time, so service techs finish faster; Heavy-duty rear door with full door seal has an adjustable sliding hinge that draws the door in evenly, containing both odors and liquids; Wastequip’s popular Guardian Power Unit with Automatic Maintenance Scheduling (AMS) that alerts operators when maintenance is due, and Watch Dog timer that prevents motor burnout; Simple, user-friendly controls with push-button start make compactor operation practically effortless (simply load material, turn key to “on” position, and press start button).

Wastequip says the 265IP model is best suited for wet waste.
