The Bergmann Electric Roll Packer (RP7700-E) - gives the unrivalled compaction in open containers everyone knows about and also delivers 68% lower electricity use when compared to the standard hydraulic unit.
This is the first in a new generation of electrically-driven waste management equipment from Bergmann with a smaller carbon footprint and minimal reliance on fossil fuels.
The Roll Packer, or rollpacker from Bergmann Direct, was first designed by Heinz Bergmann over 30 years ago, is still the leading product of its type on the market. It compacts waste into 35 yd³ and up to 50 yd³ open containers, with compaction ratios between 3:1 and 7:1 depending on the type of waste.
At 4:1 average compaction, you would reduce the transport element of your waste disposal in containers by 75% - a huge saving which could amount to many thousands of pounds a year. The roll packer would give you a tonnage of 8-10 tonnes per container instead of the typical 2 tonnes without compaction.
Here's a time-lapsed video of a recent installation of the new Electric Roll Packer on the Isle of Skye:
The 1.5 tonne spiked drum breaks up and compacts the waste to maximise tonnages making full use of the space in the container so you are not paying to transport air. The roll packer is able to deal with almost every type of bulky waste, from wood, hard and soft plastics to light metal such as washing machines. There is a variable cycle time option so you can let the machine do all the work while you are off on something else.
