The THB baler series includes two distinct models (THB-6048 and THB-6060) both of which are available in three upgrades or trim levels. Both models are full penetration units; which means that they can process a wide range of materials (plastic film and bottles, fine paper, aluminum cans and cardboard) without any need for the material to be preconditioned via a fluffer or shredder. The oversized clear top openings (60″ x 48″ and 60″ x 60″) enables the units to easily process large items and/or large volumes of materials with each stroke of the press head. Upgrades such as tongue and groove floors, AR-400 wear plates and conveyors can be added as required to provide our clients with a fully functioning and all encompassing baling system.
