Riverside Waste Machinery Ltd. has introduced a new machine into its range, which the United Kingdom-based company says is designed specifically for space-constrained client sites.

The letters LH in the RWM 300LH model stand for its ability to serve in “low height” spaces. At less than 2 meters (6.5 feet) tall, it is much shorter than the majority of its medium-sized counterparts, says the company, “but this does not impact on the equipment’s technical specification.”

Capable of handling cardboard, plastic film, paper and other commodities, the RWM 300LH has a 20-metric ton press force and can produce bales of up to 300 kilograms (660 pounds) in weight. A loading aperture of 600 millimeters (mm, or 23.5 inches) by 1,200 mm (47.25 inches) by  800mm (31.5 inches) allows for the “easy in-feed of materials,” says Riverside, and automatic compaction cycles then help ensure operational simplicity and auto-bale ejection.

“Whilst distribution centers and factories are typically quite generous in size, we are increasingly supplying balers to an ever-more diverse range of customers,” says Riverside’s managing director Jonathan Oldfield. “Prisons, hotels, hospitals and manufacturers all want to use our technology, but sometimes they struggle for the space to position the equipment.

“This doesn’t mean they should have to settle for a compact baler that may not completely fulfil their needs, just because they have a low ceiling,” he contineues. “So, we’ve thought carefully about our range and introduced this robust machine to deliver big recycling capabilities even in the tightest of spaces.”

Other features of the RWM 300LH include distance and pressure sensors that trigger a “bale full” light, an open-door bale tie off, a 45-second cycle time and compatibility with both baler twine and tape. The machine is supplied with a 12-month parts and labor warranty, operator training and optional service and maintenance packages. It is available to purchase outright or to lease.


“In the modern business environment, it’s all about offering clients choice,” says Oldfield. “Organizations should no longer be expected to adapt to technology; suppliers need to offer machinery that meets their requirements.”
