Bergmann APB606

The APB606 is a specialist portable compactor for cardboard and other dry recyclables. It has a unique 'pendulum roof' which swings down when the compactor is discharged which pushes the material out. This is often important for cardboard which can sometimes be difficult to empty.


How Does
The Pendulum Roof Work?

This is a unique feature not available on other manufacturer's machines. The pendulum roof is inset within the roof of the container. When the compactor is emptied, the hinged pendulum roof swings down, dislodging all material packed into corners of the container.

Local authorities collecting cardboard at HWRCs use this machine in order to guarantee the quick emptying of the compactor without the requirement to 'shunt' to free up the material.
