Strautmann’s German-built PP1208 is a truly industrial machine that heads the premium class of vertical baling presses worldwide. With its high pressure (58 or 70t options) and high penetration long-stroke versions, it makes dense, square-edged bales of even the most difficult to bale materials including paper, books, cardboard, film, PP bulk bags, cans, PET bottles, drums, kegs or electronic scrap.

Designed for a 50,000 operating hour lifespan in even the harshest environments, the PP1208 offers high performance, maximum reliability, optimum user comfort and safety and will repay your investment many times over through its long working life.

The PP1208 is serially equipped with patented design innovations not found anywhere else on the market.

The QuickDoor® Swing-/Sliding door for a fast, space-saving and safe filling of the press chamber.

The Press-Shield-Guiding System TopPlus® prevents any imbalance of the press plate during the compaction cycle which prolongs the life time of the baler.

The CircleSystem® reduces re-expansion of the compacted material after the press process by using down holders inside the press chamber.

The hydraulic door lock HydroClose® is a vital patented safety system that controls material re-expansion forces while opening the door with a separate cylinder to prevent unexpected door release.

The hydraulic bale ejector BaleMatic® increases user convenience. The highly compacted bale is always ejected safely and comfortably.
