Machine of the month – April – RWM 500

In this latest instalment of our ‘machine of the month’ feature, we quiz Riverside Waste Machinery’s MD – Jonathan Oldfield – on on the key features and stand-out benefits of the RWM500 mill size baler…

Describe this machine in one sentence:

A powerful mill size press which produces large bales that maximise revenue yield, load capacities and transport efficiencies.

What type of organisations use it?

A popular machine with industrial waste contractors and recyclers, which is also used by warehouses, manufacturers, distribution outlets, prisons and hospitals, to name a few. It’s great for anyone handling a large volume of packaging ‘waste’.

What materials can this waste baler handle?

The RWM500 is typically used as a cardboard baler or plastic baler. It isn’t just a great machine in terms of capacity – it also handles bulky recyclables with ease. 

What bale weights can it achieve?

Large bales of up to 550kg.

And the bale dimensions?

1200 x 1500 x 760mm.

What consumables are required to produce bales with this machine?

Overall we’d recommend baling wire – the strongest method for securing mill size bales – but clients can also use baling tape, a lower cost, for a lower cost. Both of these options are available to purchase in our secure online shop, at a competitive price.

Is a warranty included?

Yes, a 12 month full parts and labour warranty is included as standard – optional service and maintenance packages are also available.

Describe this machine in 3 words:

Robust, generates revenue.
