Preventative Maintenance on Garbage Compactor
PM service is essential for keeping garbage compactors and cardboard balers operational and to extend the lifetime of the recycling equipment. Typical aspects of preventative maintenance includes replacing filter, oil change, replace wear parts such as UHMW wear pads, as well as grease the most crucial moving parts on the machine.
A typical PM on a standard vertical baler or garbage compactor takes a few hours and costs around $300 + potential parts. Some larger equipment including horizontal balers, pre-crusher compactors, auger compactors etc might take longer time to PM and therefore the associated costs could be higher.
