Gobbler 16 Bag Packer, Horizontal Trash Compactor

The AUTO-PAKTM Model Gobbler 16 is a bag packer normally installed in below grade trash rooms, used in conjunction with a trash chute system in Hi Rise Apartment Buildings. The unit typically compacts and extrudes trash into heavy duty plastic bags. Single or multiple bags are available. Using the multiple bag system, the unit will compact and extrude up to 500 lbs. of trash before bag removal is required.

The slug of compacted trash is simply broken at segmented points and tied off to encase each segment. This system is ideal for times when the machine may be unattended, such as over weekends, etc. Operation is completely automatic, being activated by an electric eye which reacts to the presence of trash in the hopper. The system automatically shuts down when the receptacle is full.

The Gobbler 16 is the largest trash compactor in the series, providing a heavy duty solution for extremely large volumes. The trash compactor body is constructed of 5/16" steel. The hopper is 11 ga. steel with a 1/4" back plate to take the impact of falling refuse. The trash compactor is equipped with industry standard components, designed for long life and low maintenance. It comes with an electrically interlocked hopper door, located on the hopper front, for service access.
