"By switching to the Auger Compactor by Sanitech, we were able to reduce the number of pickups for our 40-yard container from 2 to 3 times a week to only 1, this cut our waste removal cost in half instantly.
It does this by brute force; this machine is a beast, compacting every square inch of the container. It’s perfect for the low density materials we convert, as it shreds everything before it enters the container and getting the air out of these materials is the key to compacting it.
It’s amazing that the Auger Compactor is able to exert twice the force and torque at half the power compared to a traditional compactor, and without any hydraulics to maintain or to leak fluid all over the ground.
One of my favorite features of the machine is that the auger is always moving forward and forcing material into the container. This prevents material from springing back out of the mouth of the compactor, and eliminates wasted time the operator would spend running our old ram style compactor through several cycles before the material would stay in the container.
Overall this is one of my favorite machines; it’s clean, efficient, environmentally friendly, practically maintenance free, and extremely powerful. If your company is “Going Green” or just looking to save money, I would start with auger compactor from Sanitech."
