RJ-550 5.5 cubic yard Stationary Compactor
Designed to Handle Heavy Industrial Manufacturing Waste Compaction
Marathon's RJ-550 is a high capacity, heavy-duty compactor ideal for industrial and commercial applications
where large volumes of solid waste are generated. Its rugged construction and large hydraulic power unit
allow maximum compaction performance. The RJ-550 features a large 96 1/2" x 60" clear top opening to accommodate oversized crates and cartons.

Built to Last...
A quality built unit, the RJ-550 is solidly reinforced with 4" I-beams throughout. The sturdy ram has a 1/2" face plate. Sides are constructed of 1/4" thick steel supported by 14 vertical angles with 1" x 4" bar running horizontally on each side of the charge box area for increased rigidity and strength. The tough 1 "x 8" x 6" angle breaker bar easily handles the beating of daily industrial trash.
Transfer Station...
The RJ-550 is also designed for residential collection vehicles serving transfer station applications for municipalities and private contractors. A conveniently located RJ-550 transfer facility will eliminate the need for unnecessary trips to the landfill by intermediate collection vehicles resulting in fuel, maintenance and labor cost reductions. Compaction into large compaction containers or transfer trailers may also reduce dumping fees.

This Transfer Station features a RJ-550 Compactor with a RJ-42RC Compaction Container. This station serves approximately 2,000 - 3,000 people. Rear loader trucks dump residential waste into the station which is also open to residents and businesses who do not have collection service.
Ram Guide System :

The packing ram is supported by specially formulated cast iron shoes which ride on replaceable wear strips. This exclusive design protects the charge box floor from the full force of the packing ram, extending its life and dramatically reducing compaction-robbing friction.
Side-Mount Power Unit :

  • Side-Mounted Power Unit for ease-of-
maintenance – eliminates the need to go inside the compactor body for servicing.

• Limit Switch and all other parts of the power unit are easily accessible for ease-of-maintenance.

• Reset Button for the Motor Starter is also located on the outside, which eliminates entry into the control box
Advanced Control System :

The RJ-550 features a Control Station with advanced, simplified 2-button control system. It is key-operated, fully automatic and contained in a weatherproof NEMA 4 enclosure. Connected to the power pack with 13' of sealtite, the controls can be located for operator convenience.
