Ludden & Mennekes’ RPK 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 8-12 tonnes, depending on materials.

Using a self-cleaning pendulum ram, the RPK is specifically designed to compact wet, food, organic and offensive waste.

With container sizes ranging from 14-24m3, the RPK portable compactor offers high performance, small footprint and low maintenance.

It can be sited on tarmac, block-paving, rough ground, etc. as it does not require permanent fixings.

Its design completely avoids any possibility of waste and liquids building up behind the ram, which entirely removes the need for unpleasant cleaning and reduces the risk of expensive breakdowns and repairs.
