Truck Tyre Baler

The Gradeall Truck Tyre Baler is designed to help with tyre disposal operations dealing with tyres removed from large commercial vehicles including trucks and buses.

How the Truck Tyre baler works

The truck tyre baler is simple in its operation, truck tyres are laid into the baler, the doors are closed and the compressing head is pushed downwards with 50 tonnes of force delivered through two rams.

Even when operated by two people, this is one of the most cost-effective tyre balers found in Europe, both in terms of capital as well as the operational cost. The operation is semi-automatic, in that loading is manual, cycling is done automatically, with manual bale tying using wire strapping.

Bale ejection is made as easy as possible thanks to a chain based bale eject system that ejects completed bales out of the baler. At the destination, if de-baling is necessary it is simply a matter of cutting the wire strapping.

Tyre disposal costs

Traditionally Truck Tyres have been thrown loose onto trailers, however with increasing transport and fuel costs truck tyres can now be baled into a volume of between 15-20% of the original load, reducing truck journeys by up to 70% greatly reducing transport and fuel costs in the process.

Need to bale more than truck tyres

The truck tyre baler whilst ideal for businesses dealing with waste truck tyres is only capable of baling truck tyres. The MKII tyre baler can be used in conjunction with the Sidewall cutter to get between 26 and 32 truck tyres in a bale. Whilst also producing sidewalls which can be used for silage pit covers. It may be worth considering both these machines as opposed to one truck tyre baler as the versatility they provide is extremely beneficial if dealing with a wide variety of tyre sizes. Furthermore, truck tyres baled in the MKII tyre baler are PAS108 compliant.
