Bergmann APB1620

The APB1620 Bergmann portable hooklift (roro) compactor is specially designed for compacting dry recyclables such as plastics, cardboard and foils but it can be used for general, mainly dry waste.


The APB1620 has the largest feed aperture of any portable hooklift compactor available in the UK. It uses the patented 'throw-over blade' which allows continuous feeding while compacting and there is no space behind the press plate to be cleaned out (unlike other makes).

Available in capacities from 14m³ to 20m³ with a standard charge box of 4.5m³.

There is also a 'low-height' version (2060mm).
