The MK2 Tyre Baler combined with the Sidewall cutter work great to deal with end of life car and truck tyres. The MK2 Tyre Baler will manage up to 110 car tyres per bale. Larger truck tyres, if they have had their sidewalls cut first, can be baled in the MK2 Tyre Baler where it is possible to get between 26 to 32 truck tyres in a bale depending on whether the sidewalls are baled.
The equipment was first placed inside a 20 Foot shipping container in order to plan the loading layout, although there was little spare space with the equipment in place it all would fit. The aim was to reduce the amount of reassembly the customer has to carry out when the container arrives.
The MK2 tyre baler resting on a horizontal transport frame, this allows it to be loaded safely in a horizontal position into a shipping container without causing any damage to the baler itself.

The hydraulic power unit is then loaded next, all hoses and electrical connections have been fully labelled to make it as simple as possible to install back onto the machine when delivered. Video and text-based instructions are provided to customers upon delivery of the equipment.
Baling wires are included with the baler to ensure the customer has all they need to start baling once they receive the baler. Anything loaded into the container is also fully strapped down with ratchet straps to ensure nothing moves around while at sea.
The Sidewall & Tread cutter is next to go into the container, this machine requires no reassembly upon delivery.
The container doors close over with a few inches of space to spare.
The quick animation below shows this loading process. For any international orders, Gradeall dispatches MK2 Tyre Balers in 20-foot shipping containers, there is space to also include a Sidewall & Tread Cutter which utilises the container fully.
