  • Bergmann APB1620 Portable Hooklift Compactor

    The APB1620 is the updated version of the APB607. It is the Bergmann portable hooklift compactor specially designed for compacting dry recyclates 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 which needs to be cleaned out.

    Difference between Bergmann compactors and the rest
    Traditional compactors (orange compactor above) have a space behind the press plate which clogs up with material over time. It has to be regularly cleaned out or the cylinders jam or the seals corrode, especially with wet waste. Bergmann compactors (see right picture) have cylinders in the side, separated from the waste and no chamber behind the press plate

    You benefit because there is no laborious, manual cleaning out job to do, typical with standard compactors where the waste gets in behind the press plate. See above.
