MKII Tyre Baler

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.

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 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.
