Common Repairs

Updated: Aug 16, 2019



It's inevitable that as you use your compactor and baler, things will undergo wear and tear and eventually need repaired. We're going to take you through some of the most common repairs that we have seen.

  1. Operational Issues. If you are using a compactor or baler for something other than its intended function, chances are something will go wrong. Even if it is used for exactly its intended purpose, things can still wear down and need serviced.

  2. Vandalism. Unfortunately, a lot of times we see equipment that has been vandalized. This is due to the fact that a majority of businesses keep their equipment outside. This issue doesn't really need repaired, but it can become an eye sore that keeps your business from looking as professional as possible.

  3. Hydraulics. Most compactors and balers have hydraulic components responsible for the mass crushing that they do. It goes without saying that these components work exponentially harder than most other parts of your machine. Being sure to regularly service and inspect these components will help to ensure that they last as long as possible.

  4. Neglecting Regular Service. We recommend that you service your equipment regularly to avoid unexpected issues and to understand how your equipment is operating. It is expected for some equipment components to need replacing over time, but with high quality products and regular servicing, you can negate the risk of needing to replace an entire piece of equipment.
