The Gradeall GH500 is an industrial horizontal baler designed to be used by waste processors dealing with over 50 tonnes of material per week. The GH500 Horizontal Baler can bale a wide range of recyclable materials including paper, cardboard, hard and soft plastics, light steel, aluminium drinks cans, bottles, and much more. The GH500 produces mill sized bales which are tied using 4 lengths of baling wire. The hydraulically operated door is operated via an electronic control panel and will unlock the door lock mechanism, open the door and eject bales minimising operator input.

Modular design of GH500 Horizontal Baler

Modular in design the GH500 like Gradeall static compactors can be fitted with a  variety of material feed options to suit specific requirements. Options include a simple hinged hopper for manual material entry, hoppers fed via tipping skips/telehandlers, bin lift systems with full safety cages featuring magnetic interlocks and integrated

remote monitoring system

A remote monitoring system is available optionally on the GH500. This uses the same technology as featured on our static and portable compactors; the Intelli-fill system. This allows Gradeall to provide remote diagnostics and troubleshooting, and to change parameters such as ram pressure and speed to suit specific materials being processed. (Note this system requires a SIM card with an active network subscription which is subject to network operator costs. Signal strength may also vary depending upon location).

The GH500 Horizontal Baler produces mill sized bales, these bales are ideally suited to fit on board shipping containers. This means that it is easier and cheaper to transport recyclable materials to places where it can be processed further. Mill sized bales of recyclable materials typically have a value which means they can be sold on, thus generating a revenue as a result of operating the GH500, coupled with low running and maintenance costs means that purchasing a GH500 Horizontal Baler is a wise investment.
