Product Description

Can this Tyre Baler Bale Truck Tyres?

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 of the truck tyre baler in action 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.

Tyre transport costs

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 tyre baling machine on a purchase, purchase with lease finance or rental basis over a fixed period.

Other materials

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, wool and a wide range of other materials.

Remote Monitoring

Tyre Baler wireless connectivity

The MKII tyre baler features remote monitoring system, in essence, the same intelli-fill system as portable and static compactors but tailored for a tyre baler.

  • Advanced warning, problems spotted before they become problems.
  • Gradeall can provide remote login for quick problem fixes.
  • Fine control of settings.
  • Built-in service counter; based on usage rather than a set date range.
  • Email alert of bale completion.
Requirements for remote monitoring in the MK2 tyre baler;

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.

Why the MK2 Tyre baler?

Tyres are considered one of the most overlooked 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 location to the processing factory or recycling facility, the choice made was to simply dump or abandon the tyres.

Recent studies show a total of between 1 billion to 1.8 billion worn tyres were disposed of every year worldwide, 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:

  1. The MK2 Tyre Baler allows for the compression of up to 110 tyres into one single bale. As a pas 108 tyre baler it can significantly reduce the volume of the tyres and prepares them for smooth transport.
  2. The MK2 Tyre Baler produces between 4 to 6 bales per hour, with an average of 100 tyres per bale. This is a very efficient tyre compactor
  3. With more tyres baled, the problem of transporting the used tyres to the processing or recycling facilities has made the tyre recycling process easier.
  4. The MK2 tyre baling machine has been proven to help reduce tyre waste by up to 85%.
  5. A custom version of the MK2 tyre baler called the multi materials baler has been made to bale other materials such as plastic to carpet and wool. This significantly saves time and money that could be spent on processing these materials.

Why Bale Tyres?

The dangers of dumping used tyres aren’t limited to the fact tyres are not biodegradable, there are more dangers including:

  • Fire Risk:

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 transfers toxic materials emitted from the smouldering tyres and transfers them into the ground polluting soil and potentially underground water. This is not to mention the thick toxic smoke released into the air and its devastating impact on global warming and human health.

  • Increasing demand for recycled materials:

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 wherever and whenever 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. 

  • Freeing up used space:

Not all tyre dumping locations are legal, which means there are many occupied places that need to be freed up. With many governments restricting the amount of tyres that can be stored at one location. These dump locations can be better used when tyres are instead baled to permit the waste tyres to be further recycled. A wide range different projects exist to achieve those aims that can be beneficial for society. 

The Gradeall MK2 Tyre Baler Features

  1. The MK2 Tyre Baler produces up to 5 bales per hour, with every bale containing between 90 and 110 tyres.
  2. The upper doors of the baler are closed manually with strong heavy duty locks to ensure the doors are securely locked in place even when under extreme pressure.
  3. Two larger tyres are placed on top of each compaction cycle, allowing the tyres beneath to be securely compacted in each cycle.
  4. To allow for a safe and easy ejection from the baler, ejection chains are latched onto the head of the baler. Which ejects the complete bale out when the head is lifted.

The operating mechanism and control panel of the MK2 Tyre Baling Machine are easy to use, allowing one person to operate the tyre baler. Four operating MK2 Tyre Balers could potentially bale up to 6 million tyres in a year.
