RJ-225 On-Site Compactor
Mark-Costello's Most Popular Compactor, for Many Great Reasons!

The RamJet 225 is your best compactor value. Built for reliable performance in commercial and medium industrial situations, it effectively reduces solid waste material to a fraction of its original size. It is attractively priced and features 56 second cycle time and powerful 55,100 lbs. maximum compaction force!

Added Value Features

Allen-Bradley Motor Starter
Heavier steel in key structural areas for heavy-duty construction:
Floor & ram face made of 1/2" steel
Ram top have 3/8" steel
Sides have 1/4" steel
TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motor
Quick Release Motor Mount for easy servicing and maintenance
TRICON Fullness Assurance System. This time shifting device eliminates all but one limit switch. It also produces better compaction ratios by making the ram dwell against the trash reducing the "memory" and springback. TRICON offers better cold weather performance and extends the life of the machine.


The strength is where it belongs: a charge box floor of 3/8" steel plate over four, 4" steel channels @ 5.4 lbs; a 3/8" ram face plate, backed with 6" structural channels; 1/4" ram top supported by five heavy duty formed crossmembers; and stoutly reinforced charge box sides.

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 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.

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.
