Ludden & Mennekes’ Model L range of sealed portable compactors are high quality German built machines, designed for sites with medium to large volumes of waste.
When full, they are collected by a hooklift lorry for transport to disposal, typically holding 8 to 12 tonnes, depending on materials.
Using twin cross-over cylinders for a small footprint and offering an oversized infeed aperture, the Model L can be used to compact any kind of materials, e.g. residual waste, moist waste, commercial waste, organic waste and oversized waste.
With container sizes ranging from 14-24m3, the Model L portable compactor offers high performance, small footprint and low maintenance. Requiring no permanent fixings, the Model L can be sited on tarmac, block-paving, rough ground, etc.
The oscillating steel scrapers and maintenance-free, fully guided press head reduce wear problems, waste build up and cleaning therefore reducing labour, breakdowns and repair costs.
