Hydraulic Drum Crusher/compactor
Vestil drum crushers / compactors are specially designed for crushing hazardous materials in a drum to reduce disposal costs and crushing empty drums to save valuable storage space. These dual function units come with a standard 460 V, 3-phase, 6.5 hp motor and a dual-speed hydraulic pump capable of crushing and compacting drums of sizes up to 55 gallons. They meet OSHA 1910.212 and ANSI Z245.5 standards and feature pressure relief valves to prevent system overload and a door interlock system that allows the motor to run only when the door is closed.
