[ Specifications ]

Stress Engineered

The Ram-Jet 225HD is specially engineered for the really tough jobs in waste disposal, and that means the strength is where it belongs... charge box floor features 1/2" steel plate over four 4" steel channels... 1/2" ram face plate, backed with 10" channels that incorporates T-1 plate in high stress areas... 3/8" ram top supported by 8 heavy duty formed crossmembers... and heavily reinforced charge box sides.

Added Value Features
Allen-Bradley Motor Starter
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.

Industrial & Recycling Applications

The RJ-225HD is ideally suited for industrial applications such as the disposal of skids and cartons and for recycling corrugated, aluminum and similar materials. Electrical components, including the control box assembly, carry the UL Label. The 40 1/2" x 60" charge box is 33" deep to make disposal fast and easy.

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.


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-225HD 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.

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