Sustainable Tyre Recycling Takes Center Stage in Australia with MK2 Tyre Baler

By:     Kieran Donnelly

Gradeall has recently dispatched a MK2 Tyre Baler to a customer in Australia. This is the first time we have sent equipment to a customer in Australia, it is due to arrive in Melbourne in a number of weeks.

Following the number of machines recently sent in 20-foot shipping container to Spain, Estonia, Iceland and South Africa in recent months we have found the best way to mount the MK2 tyre baler into a shipping container.

Using the transport cradle the MK2 tyre baler rests securely in a horizontal position while in the container. We provide customers with an easy to follow instruction manual and video guide covering the process. This makes it possible for the customer to unload the baler and set it up without the need to pay for an engineer to travel to the site to carry out this work.
