Waste Compactor – PakMor Stationary Auger Compactor l Bucher Municipal


auger compactor


Stationary Auger Compactor

Greater compaction, optimal performance and reduced transport cost.

Bucher Municipal’s PakMor Stationary Auger Compactor is specifically designed for compacting large volumes of dry waste such as dry general waste, paper, cardboard, plastic and timber. The efficient processing capability of the compactor results in significant volume reduction, which ultimately saves collection and transport costs for waste and recycling services. 

The PakMor Stationary Auger Compactor crushes and changes the size and shape of waste material prior to packing it into the receiving container. The result is significantly higher tonnage per load as the material is more effectively processed and compacted by utilising an auger unit. Available in four different configurations: AS90 single 900mm auger, AS120 single 1200mm auger, AS60t twin 600mm auger & AS70t twin 700mm auger.

These augers can be paired with bin lifters, chutes, platforms, pre-crushers, sliders and bins from 6m³ -  40m³

The proven design of the PakMor Stationary Auger Compactor effectively crushes and changes the size and shape of cardboard prior to packing it into the receiving container. The changes to the characteristics of the cardboard eliminates spring back allowing for superior compaction efficiency, resulting in higher tonnage per container load.

Optional Extras

Bin Lifters

Safely and efficiently handle waste

Bucher Municipal manufactures a range of heavy duty hydraulic bin lifters to suit loading MGBs, front lift bins, tipplers, pallets & other custom applications.

The Bin Lifter is mounted inside a safety cage, with machine guarding and access interlocks designed to comply with Australian Standards.

Features such as door position, loading access, increased tipping height and lifting weight capacity can be tailored to suit customer requirements.

Cardboard Pre-Shredder

Prevent bridging and increase payloads.

Bucher Municipal's Cardboard Pre-Shredder is offered as an option to all Bucher Municipal PakMor Stationary Compactors. It is designed to effectively tear & shred oversized cardboard or dense material such as newspaper or magazine bundles, which prevents bridging or blockages during compaction. This also increases payload density allowing for up to 80% greater payloads per container.

Slider system

The PakMor Slider system allows compactors to be placed in areas with access constraints. The Slider system includes a hydraulically operated platform that can be slewed on an angle, shifted sideways or moved forward into a position to safely access the compactor for collection. 

Advanced technology solutions

Bucher Municipal is the industry leader in compactor technology systems, which are constantly evolving to meet client requirements.

The PAK-ALERT Notification System generates emails to nominated recipients when the compactor is 3/4 filled and full allowing you to optimise service collection scheduling. Email notification of equipment faults can also be generated, with the option for dial-in access for improved service response, remote program updates & setting adjustments. 

PAK-WEIGH Technology offers multiple weighing solutions including data reporting, most commonly utilised to capture weight per user transaction using either a hand-load scale hopper or bin lifter with floor scale configuration. Alternatively, a rail system with scales can be installed to maximise container tonnage while ensuring compliance with NHVR and Chain of Responsibility requirements.

Compactor receiving containers
  • Available in a range of sizes, from 6m3 to 40m3 capacity
  • Multiple compactor containers allow for changeovers to minimise operational downtime & improved service efficiencies
