Truck Tyre Baler

The Gradeall Truck Tyre Baler is designed specifically to help with tyre disposal operations dealing with tyres removed from large commercial vehicles, trucks, lorries, buses, and any other HGV (heavy goods vehicle). 

The truck tyre baler can produce bales containing up to 12 truck tyres. Depending on tyre size and composition these bales can weigh between 600-700 kg, which is a very dense and solid bale. It is possible to fit between 40 – 44 completed truck tyre bales into a 40 foot container or trailer, bringing the weight of truck tyres loaded onto a container to between 23/24 tonnes.

At Gradeall, our aim is to deliver the best tyre baling and tyre processing machinery on the market. We have a range of high-spec tyre baler machinery that will help improve the waste management process within your operation. We are world class manufacturers of recycling machinery, so you know you’re getting the best equipment from a reputable and respected source.

A full range of tyre balers

The truck tyre baler is designed specifically for truck tyres, and can only do that one type of tyre, whilst for some operations this is ideal others prefer a more versatile arrangement. We cater for this with our MK2 tyre baler and MK3 tyre baler are designed for baling car tyres but if used with our sidewall cutter truck/lorry tyre baling is possible with the one type of baler.

Product Description

How the Truck Tyre baler works

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

Even when operated by two people, this is one of the most cost-effective tyre balers found in Europe, both in terms of initial purchase price as well as the operational cost. The operation is semi-automatic, in that loading is manual, cycling is done automatically the head will complete a press down and back up 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 truck tyre baler. At the destination, if de-baling is necessary it is simply a matter of cutting the wire strapping.

Truck and lorry tyre weight

A truck or lorry tyre can weigh anywhere from 30kg – 90kg per tyre. They are inherently bulky, take up lots of room and are difficult to manage. With the Truck Tyre Baler, you can condense the waste tyres into neat bales that take up less room and are much easier to manoeuvre. However given their weight, a forklift is usually required to handle the truck tyre bales. 

Benefits of the truck tyre baler 

If your operation disposes of large tyres from commercial vehicles, and lots of them, a truck tyre baler can make the task a lot more efficient, streamlining the entire tyre waste disposal process. Check out the benefits that our Gradeall truck tyre baler can provide below. 

Increased efficiency in transporting waste truck tyres 

Traditionally, waste truck tyres have been thrown loose onto trailers, this takes up large amounts of space and does not optimise the waste disposal process. However, with increasing transport and fuel costs, businesses now need to make a conscious decision to make savings wherever and whenever possible, and also to improve upon their environmental credentials. 

With the Truck Tyre Baler, tyres can now be baled into a volume of between 15-20% of the original size of the truck tyres. This results in reducing truck journeys by up to 70% and greatly reducing transport and fuel costs in the process as less journeys are required to transport waste truck tyres to wherever they will be processed for recycling. This makes for a more efficient waste management system, and the savings on transportation and storage costs can quickly provide a useful return on investment justifying the initial outlay for the truck tyre baler. 

Less manual labour required and increased productivity

The Gradeall truck tyre baler offers increased efficiency and productivity in the tyre disposal process. Instead of having to manually lift individual tires onto the back of a container or trailer, your workforce can now load the truck tyre baler with tyres, which requires less labour and less time, compared with the needed to fill a container with loose waste truck tyres. 

The truck tyre baler also requires less manual labour due to it being a semi-automatic machine in that the cycling is completed automatically, the baling head will move down and back up with the single press of a button on the control panel. Manual labour is only required to load the tyres, manually tie the bale and if needed cut the wire strap for de-baling. This truck tyre baler machine will help your operation improve its productivity when dealing with the waste management process.

Avoid hiring a tyre disposal company 

Having a truck tyre baler on site will also help you avoid hiring out a third party in order to help you manage your waste truck tyre disposal process. Hiring an external company can cost from £1.50 per tyre that is disposed of, which can quickly accrue additional charges for your business.

A truck tyre baler will help offset the cost of disposing of waste lorry tyres, especially if your business has regular quantities of large lorry tyres that need disposing of. The Truck Tyre Baler is a worthwhile investment, and will help you better manage the waste disposal for your business.

Less cost for truck tyre disposal

Another benefit of a truck tyre baler is that it results in less cost for disposing waste HGV tyres at recycling centres. Typically, waste HGV tyres are usually charged per tyre for disposal, but for commercial tyre waste, some recycling centres offer the price based on per ton of waste tyres, compared to paying for them individually. 

A truck tyre baler will help your business avail of this option if it is available to you in your area, you should check with your local authority if this is possible. Properly recycling tyres also ensures that your business is adhering to the environmental regulations of your region and being active in achieving a zero waste economy.

What industries would benefit from a truck tyre baler? 

Properly disposing of truck tyres is now a legal requirement for businesses that produce or deal with any types of tyres. It is against the U.K. law to dispose of them in a landfill site, and indeed it is against the law to dump tyres in many countries. Measures have now been put in place where they need to be recycled or recovered into their constituent materials. Currently in the U.K., nearly 100% of tyres are recycled in some way, the reason for this is that thanks to balers like the Gradeall Truck tyre baler it is possible to get these waste tyres to responsible recycling locations. 

If your business has an excess of large waste truck tyres that need to be disposed of, a truck tyre baler can help you achieve that in an efficient manner. The following industries may benefit from a truck tyre baler on site:

  • Truck Mechanics 
  • Truck dealers
  • Tyre fitting centres
  • Tyre manufacturers and rethreading facilities
  • Vehicle manufacturers
  • Vehicle scrap yards and dismantlers
  • Bus and transport centres 

If you find that your business has an excess of large commercial tyres, it is definitely worth considering a truck tyre baler in order to help you manage this waste. 

What happens to truck tyre bales?

Once truck tyres have been baled, they are then transported to a recycling centre where they may undergo further treatment to be used as a recyclable material. Further treatment may involve turning the waste material into rubber crumb for playground surfaces or used in cement production as an alternative fuel source to fossil fuels. In their baled form however, they can be used as an embankment underground for better structural support and drainage.

Need to bale more than truck tyres?

The truck tyre baler whilst ideal for businesses dealing soley 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. This also produces sidewalls which can be used for silage pit covers, truck tyre sidewalls are ideal for this as they are close to the weight of a full car tyre without taking up as much space or holding unpleasant stagnant water inside.  

Depending on the size and scalability of your operation, and the type of tyres you typically deal with, it may be worth considering both of these machines as opposed to one truck tyre baler. The versatility of both machines is extremely beneficial if dealing with a wide variety of tyre sizes and types, putting a truck tyre through our truck tyre sidewall cutter makes it much easier to shred the tyre as the thick steel bead has been isolated and removed.
