The Hydraulic Drum Crusher crushes 55-gallon steel drums to approximately 6” high and resets automatically to crush another drum. Full cycle time is 25 seconds (crush and retract). This unit has 38,000 pounds of crushing force. This convenient design gives you two pieces of equipment in one. Safety features include a pressure relief valve, which prevents overload, a double door latch to secure the door when crushing, and an interlock system that will prevent the motor from running unless the door is closed. The Hydraulic Drum Crusher meets OSHA 1910.212 and ANSI Z245.5 standards. It has built-in fork pockets that aid in transporting and an aluminum drip pan, for catching any excess liquid that may be expelled during the crushing operation.
