Designed for maximum output of tyre bales, the MK2 can produce up to 6 PAS108 compliant tyre bales (between 400-500 tyres) per hour. The tyre volume is reduced by up to 80% drastically improving transport and storage efficency. Baling makes it easier to transport end of life tyres onto further processing venues such as construction projects, civil engineering, shredding, pyrolysis, and energy recovery plants. Gradeall have supplied MK2 tyre balers across the globe.
Ideal for tyre collectors, recycling centres, vehicle dismanlters, and tyre depots.
Not normally. The truck tyre baler has been designed to deal with unprocessed truck tyres. However, when combined with a sidewall cutter it is possible to cut the sidewalls from tyres separating the sidewalls and treads. Then the tyre parts can be deposited into the MKII tyre baler in a specific pattern to produce a bale containing up to 26 tyres. Watch the video to see how to bale truck tyres in a MKII baler. A number of our customers now operate a sidewall cutter and MKII baler together and find that this combination is ideal for dealing with a wide range of road going tyres.
The Gradeall MKII Tyre Baler is one of the most cost-effective Tyre Balers in Europe today in terms of capital cost. It also offers fantastic operational efficiency in that it can be operated by one person, and the baling wire cost per bale is minimal, the typical cost per bale with baling wire and electricity included is £2.60 (based on average UK electricity costs).
Gradeall can supply this machine on a purchase, purchase with lease finance or rental basis over a fixed period.

The Multi materials baler is a version of the MK2 tyre baler with alterations made to the material feed arrangement which makes it ideal for baling card, plastic, fabrics, carpet and wool.
The MKII tyre baler features remote monitoring system, in essence, the same intelli-fill systemas portable and static compactors but tailored for a tyre baler.
Requirements for remote monitoring;
This remote monitoring system uses a GSM SIM card which needs to have an active subscription subject to network operator costs.
Sufficient signal strength is needed for a reliable connection, this can vary depending on location and specific network operator.

Tyres are considered one of the most neglected sources of recycling materials and because of that, rubber waste has been increasing in the past years. Due to the size and high cost of moving worn tyres from the original place to the processing factory or facility, the choice made was to simply dump the tyres.
Recent studies show a total of 1 billion and 1.8 billion worn tyres were disposed of every year, and since rubber isn’t biodegradable, this poses a serious environmental issue. With the world turning to find sustainable environmental solutions, here’s how your journey can start with the MK2 Tyre Baler:
The dangers of dumping used tyres aren’t limited to the fact tyres not being biodegradable, but there are more dangers including:
It’s easy for tyres to catch fire either on purpose or through natural causes as they are made from highly flammable materials. The process of putting out a fire in a tyre dump is both difficult and dangerous. The fire isn’t easy to put out, and when water is used for the extinguishing process, it carries toxic materials emitted from the tyres and transfers them to other surfaces, possibly underground water. This is not to mention the toxic smoke released into the air and its impact on global warming.
We can all feel the effects of waste on the environment with global warming heating up our planet. In this regard, countries around the world signed different treaties and companies have been urged to act sustainably and use recyclable materials when possible.
When tyres are baled and transported to the respective facilities, the recycling journey can begin. Tyres can be broken down using different methods to produce different recycled materials and used for varied purposes. From lining playgrounds, and sports grounds, used in producing everyday objects such as computer mouse pads, to being used in civil engineering projects such as road pavement and alignment.
Not all tyre dumping locations are legal, which means there are many occupied places that need to be freed up. These dump locations can be better used when tyres are instead baled to establish different projects that can be beneficial for society.
The operating mechanism and control panel of the MK2 Tyre Baler are easy to use, allowing one person to operate the tyre baler. Four operating MK2 Tyre Balers could bale up to 6 million tyres in a year.

The Gradeall MKII Tyre Baler conforms to PAS108 which has been specified by The British Standards Institution (BSI) in collaboration with WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) to provide a specification for producing compact tyre bales of consistent and verifiable quality and dimension. Using a MK2 tyre baler to produce PAS108 sized tyre bales will easily reach a 40ft container weight limit in tyres.
The typical customers for the MKII Tyre baler include waste tyre collectors, waste tyre transporters and waste tyre recyclers.
Combine a sidewall cutter and MKII tyre baler to bale 18 truck tyres in a 1000Kg Bale
London Tyre Disposal purchased a Gradeall Mark II Tyre Baler in 2011 to bale tyres and significantly reduce loose tyres' footprint.
