+ Add to Quote Request

Our Drum Crushers are robustly built machines with a lot of safety features. They crush steel drums quickly and easily and are ideal for capacities up to 205 litres. These devices have drum piercing spikes as well as a 30-litre oil retention tank to catch any leftovers.

The sole purpose of our Drum Crushers is to dispose of damaged or unwanted 205-litre drums and save on space, transport and handling, whilst enabling easy recycling. Insert the drum, close the interlocking door and press the button for automatic compaction. The unit will reduce a 205-litre drum to a 75 mm high disc in less than a minute.

This crusher has a high compaction force ratio and a totally enclosed chamber ensuring a high level of safety. It is simple to operate, low maintenance and has an ergonomic design.

The easy loading and quick cycle times save time and money!  When complete, a pallet with 48 crushed drums has a product height of only 900 mm.
