[ Specifications | Steel & Operational Options ]

Designed to Handle Heavy Industrial Manufacturing Waste Compaction

Mark-Costello's RamJet RJ-575HD is a high capacity, heavy-duty compactor ideal for industrial and commercial applications where large volumes of solid waste are generated. Its rugged construction and large hydraulic power unit allow maximum compaction performance. The RJ-575 features a large 95" x 59 1/2" clear top opening to accommodate oversized crates and cartons.

Transfer Station...

The RJ-575HD is designed for transfer station applications for municipalities and private contractors. A conveniently located RJ-575HD transfer facility will eliminate the need for unnecessary trips to the landfill by intermediate collection vehicles resulting in fuel, maintenance and labor cost reductions. Compaction into large compaction containers or transfer trailers may also reduce dumping fees.


The high capacity, 5.5 cubic yard RJ-575HD is ideal for heavy industrial applications. The large hydraulic power unit and oversized clear top opening make it well suited for high volumes of pallets, crates and other bulky solid wastes.
