Tyre Baler Conveyor

Loading a tyre baler is a physically demanding task, requiring the operator to bend down and pick up over 100 tyres per bale. Throughout the day this can quickly become tiring and lead to staff injuries and staff downtime. Operators can also be slowed down by the need to move about in search of tyres to load onto the baler. The solution to these problems is the Gradeall tyre baler conveyor. Designed to work with either the MK2 or MK3 tyre balers. This conveyor includes a slide-out loading platform which places the operator at the ideal height to load tyres into a baler chamber. The platform slides out of the way to open the baler doors for tying and the initial floor-level loading stage.

Product Description

Detailed Drawings MK2 Tyre Baler & Conveyor

With a large capacity 17m³ hopper and tall sides the conveyor is able to hold enough tyres to produce multiple bales, the loading platform is at the ideal height for the tyre baler as it requires no bending down to pick up or load tyres.

The conveyor itself is a chain-driven conveyor which provides slip-free drive, without any tendency to roll off. A foot-operated pedal activates the conveyor at a slow safe speed bringing the tyres to the operator where they can be conveniently lifted to the baler.

With bolt-on side panels and a hopper section, the conveyor can be adapted to your site layout and preferred loading requirements.

Operation of the Tyre Baler Conveyor

The Tyre Baler Conveyor is designed to streamline the tyre waste disposal process at your operation. It is an adaptable piece of machinery that will enhance the productivity of your workforce, in addition to reducing the physical strain placed on your employees. 

It is simple to use in just 6 easy steps: 

Step 1:

All doors of the baler are open, and the platform for the conveyor is retracted to provide easy access to lay the baling wires into the floor of the baler.

Step 2:

The two doors on the bale eject side of the baler, the side opposite to the conveyor side is closed. The platform remains in its retracted state to allow the operators to begin loading the floor of the baler with tyres. 

This initial loading of the floor is the only time when tyres are loaded at ground level. Once the tyres are above the lower door, the retainer hooks keep the already-loaded tyres at that height.

Step 3:

The lower door of the baler is closed once the level of the tyres reaches that height. Only the upper door remains open. The platform is slid up to the baler and the loading process continues. Now the conveyor can be used to deliver tyres to the operator for quick and easy loading of the baler.

Step 4:

Once the loading chamber of the baler is completely filled, the upper door is closed. Given the extra height of the platform compared with the ordinary baler steps, it is much easier to load tyres at the very top of the loading chamber. 

With all of the doors closed the baler will compress the tyres in a compression cycle. The head in the baler will press down on the tyres, Retainers in the lower doors prevent the compressed tyres from rising above the height of the lower door when the head rises again.

The upper door can be opened up again to continue the loading cycle. This process of loading in tyres and completing a compression cycle will continue for another 5-6 times depending on the size of the tyres being loaded. 


Step 5:

When the baler is full, it will flash the ‘baler full’ warning light. The baler is now ready to eject the bale. The platform is slid backwards. All of the doors on the baler are fully opened. 

Step 6:

The baler then ejects the bale. It is collected using a forklift. The process then begins again at step 1.

Benefits of the tyre baler conveyor 

The Tyre Baler Conveyor has been designed to be an uncomplicated piece of machinery, ensuring that it enhances the efficiency of managing waste tyres at your operation. 

With the Gradeall Tyre Baler Conveyor, you know that you’re getting a sturdy piece of equipment that is built to last and provides a strong return on investment in the future. You can expect the following benefits with the Tyre Baler Conveyor: 

Reduced staff injury

Your staff may have to lift hundreds of tyres per day and load them into the baler on site. This puts physical strain on your workforce where they have to bend down, lift a heavy tyre and place it where it needs to be. 

Whilst your staff may have had health and safety training for continuously lifting heavy equipment, human error is not totally avoidable and the likelihood of one of your staff having  a back injury is not uncommon.

The tyre baler conveyor is at an ideal height for employees to load tyres, meaning they don’t have to bend down and pick them up. This reduces the likelihood of staff injury and prevents potential staff downtime that may decrease the productivity and output levels of your operation. 

Increased productivity 

Another benefit of a Tyre Baler Conveyor is that it can enhance the productivity of your workforce. Staff can simply walk around collecting tyres and load them onto the conveyor, ready for baling.

The tyre baler conveyor is capable of storing large quantities of tyres in its 17m³ capacity. It will also continue the compression cycle around 5 – 6 times. This helps streamline the baling process and increase the productivity of your operation. 

Storage of waste tyres

The tyre baler conveyor also provides a space to store your waste tyres before they are baled and transported to their final destination. This can help free up space in your premises and reduce the hazard of loose tyres lying around. 

Multiple bales ready

You can better manage your staffing workloads with a tyre baler conveyor. The machine holds large quantities of tyres that are ready for baling and once the conveyor is full, 

you can then allocate the tasks to particular employees – as opposed to having multiple people bale loads at different times throughout the day. 

Easily integrated into your operation 

The tyre baler conveyor offers great flexibility with how it is integrated into your operation. The bolt-on side panels and hopper section can be easily adapted to suit the requirements and space of your site. 

Safety features

The tyre baler conveyor is designed to protect the operators using it. It functions using a foot pedal to deliver the tyres up the conveyor belt at a slow and steady speed. The also has a slip-free design, meaning that the tyres will not fall off the belt and cause potential harm and injury. 

Easy access to bale

The doors of the tyre baler conveyor will open up to provide easy access to the baler, you can also open the balers beforehand and insert the baling wires on the floor. The machine will eject the bales once they are completed, and they can be lifted using a forklift.
