4 , 6 & 8 Yard Front Load plus 6 Yard Rear Load Compactors with Custom Hoppers to suit every need





Outdoor Hopper Compactors


These Compactors can easily be adapted to be fed from a Dock so that they are fed from the Dock side and then tipped by the hauler from the opposite side. - This view is the Haulers view showing the Dirvers Light at the top which allows them to stay in the truck through the entire tipping process. The lights signal whether the container is latched or unlatched and in place.

The Outdoor Hopper Compactors are excellent for customers who want to bulk feed the smaller outdoor compactors that are tipped onsite by the waste hauler (versus the Roll-Offs that are hauled to the landfill or disposal site). The design of the Hopper can be adapted to the existing feeding mechanism being used by the customer, whether a cart tipper, forklift, tilting dumpers, manual feed or whatever.  Typical container sizes that can be used with these compactors is the 4, 6 & 8 Yard Front Load Containers and the 6 Yard Rear Load Containers. This selection of containers makes the compactor very versatile for many situations.The

Oftentimes these compactors can be implemented for big savings in place of either the large Roll-Off style compactors (i.e. Self Contained & Stationary) or multiple smaller dumpsters (6 yard & 8 yard) that are situated throughout the facility. The Outdoor Hopper Compactors are ideal for many different types of applications, spanning many different industries, especially those who are already bulk feeding the 4,6 or 8 Yard dumpsters in their everyday waste processing routines.

In addition, the Outdoor Hopper Compactors can be easily adapted for Through-the-wall applications where the compactor sits on the outside and it is fed through a wall from the inside.

The Outdoor Hopper Compactors are also designed with safety and user friendliness in mind.
