Mark-Costello's RJ-225VL Stationary Compactor

Cost Saving Value...

Mark-Costello's RJ-225 Ultra Stationary Compactor: highly efficient, economical compaction equipment for today's cost conscious waste generators. The RJ-225 Ultra provides the cost-saving benefits of solid waste compaction including labor reduction, fewer collection pick-ups, and space savings.


The RJ-225 Ultra compactor is fully automatic. Simply dump waste into the large 40 1/2" x 60" charge box opening and turn the key. After the compaction cycle completes, the unit shuts down automatically. Key operation gives the operator absolute control over compactor use, eliminating expensive sharing of waste receptacles.

Ram Guide System

Ram Guide SystemThe packing ram is supported by specially formulated cast iron shoes which ride on replaceable wear strips. This exclusive design protects the charge box floor from the full force of the packing ram, extending its life and dramatically reducing compaction-robbing friction.

All of Mark-Costello's RamJet 225 Series Compactors are Totally UL Listed!

Side-Mount Power Unit

Mark-Costello's Side-Mounted Power Unit, the first in the industry, offers the convenience and ease-of-maintenance of a remote power pack with the space savings of an integrated power pack. This new configuration eliminates ALL electrical components inside the compactor.

The Pump on Mark-Costello's high performance Side-Mounted Power Unit is secured to a "C" flange TEFC motor with a machined bracket that guarantees coupling alignment. The Limit Switch and all other parts of the power unit are easily accessible for ease-of-maintenance. The Reset Button for the Motor Starter is also located on the outside which eliminates entry into the control box.

Advanced Control System

The RJ-225 Ultra features an advanced, simplified control system with 2 button operation. It is key-operated and fully automatic. The heavy duty push button controls are contained in a weatherproof NEMA 13 enclosure. Connected to the power pack with 13' of sealtite, the controls can be located for operator convenience.
