Riverside launches new baler for space-restricted sites

Riverside Waste Machinery has introduced a new machine into its range, designed specifically for size-constrained client sites.

The RWM 300LH is so-called because the robust machine is ideal for ‘low height’ spaces. At less than 2m tall it is much shorter than the majority of its medium-sized counterparts, but this does not impact on the equipment’s technical specification.

Capable of handling cardboard, plastic film and paper – to name just a few recycling applications – the RWM 300LH has a 20 tonne press force and can produce bales of up to 300kg in weight. A loading aperture of 600 x 1200 x 800mm still allows for the easy in-feed of materials, and automatic compaction cycles then ensure operational simplicity and auto-bale ejection.

Commenting on the importance of this CE-certified machine, Riverside’s managing director Jonathan Oldfield said: “Whilst distribution centres and factories are typically quite generous in size, we are increasingly supplying balers to an ever-more diverse range of customers. Prisons, hotels, hospitals and manufacturers all want to use our technology, but sometimes they struggle for the space to position the equipment.

“This doesn’t mean they should have to settle for a compact baler that may not completely fulfil their needs, just because they have a low ceiling. So we’ve thought carefully about our range and introduced this robust machine to deliver big recycling capabilities even in the tightest of spaces.”

Other features of the RWM 300LH include distance and pressure sensors which trigger the ‘bale full’ light, an open-door bale tie off, 45 second cycle time and compatibility with both baler twine and tape. The machine is supplied with a 12 month parts and labour warranty, operator training and optional service and maintenance packages. It is available to purchase outright or to hire.

“In the modern business environment, it’s all about offering clients choice,” elaborated Jonathan. “Organisations should no longer be expected to adapt to technology – suppliers need to offer machinery that meets their requirements.”
