Pak’ntainer Compactor

marathon pakntainer_grid

Marathon’s Pak’ntainer is a portable and economical self-contained compactor/container with remote power pack.

It’s designed for compacting and containing wet or dry waste and simplifying waste dumping.


The Pak’ntainer helps maintain a sanitary environment, while saving money, for those generating as little as 20 cubic yards of refuse a week. Place the Pak’ntainer wherever needed, whenever needed — temporarily or permanently — no anchoring, no concrete pad, no special surfaces required. It can be used alone or to “fill the gap” in combination with other units.

The container is tapered to achieve superior compaction ratios and aid waste ejection, which eliminates excessive wear and tear on collection trucks. Liquid-tight construction helps ensure a sanitary environment. The drain enables water to be removed, lowering disposal costs.

Available in 3, 4, 5, and 6 Cubic Yard front-load and 6 Cubic Yard rear-load models.

Untouchable VIP and VIP FL/3

marathon untouchable-vip-compactor

Marathon’s Untouchable VIP, developed for the narrow alleys of Chicago, is perfect for areas where space is limited but compaction is required. Because the power unit is on the side of the Untouchable VIP it can be placed almost directly against a back wall. The container is on heavy-duty casters and easily be rolled to an area accessible by waste collection trucks. The Untouchable VIP can be configured for front or rear loader collection vehicles.

Features
Compact Size
The compact size of the Untouchable VIP allows it to fit just about anywhere, even in trash rooms inside buildings.
Side-Mounted Power Unit
The Untouchable VIP’s power unit is accessible from the side rather than the rear allowing the back of the unit to go almost directly against a wall.
Containers with Casters
The Untouchable VIP’s heavy-duty 2.75 cubic yard compaction container is on casters and can easily be rolled to an area that is more accessible by waste collection trucks.
Triple Interlock System
The Untouchable VIP’s triple interlock, keyed operation system helps prevent unauthorized use of the compactor and controls employee pilferage.
Superior Compaction Ratio
The Untouchable VIP uses more than 13 tons of crushing power forcing the ram 18″ into the container. Between uses, the ram seals off the container and applies constant pressure on the refuse–increasing compaction and reducing spring-back.

Vert-I-Pack Vertical Compactor

marathon vert-i-pack-vertical

Marathon’s Vert-I-Pack® (VIP) compactors are ideal for applications where space for a compaction system is limited, the volume of wet waste does not justify a larger system, or a roll-off collection service is not available. This unit is great for shopping plazas, restaurants, cafeterias, fast food locations, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and much more.

Features
• Reversible: Use for Front or Rear Feed Applications
• Adjustable to Accommodate a 4, 6 or 8 Cubic Yard Container
• Extra Low Feed Heights
• Rigid Anchoring Platform
• Triple Interlock
• Available in 3 – 8 Cubic Yard Capacities

Hauler Benefits User Benefits
• The Vert-I-Pack (VIP) Vertical Compactor is designed to simplify compacted waste dumping, save driver time and substantially reduce maintenance cost. In fact, a front loader driver can attach and empty the container in less than 90 seconds.
• The new Reversible feature allows the unit to easily be converted to front or rear feed by moving the interchangeable bolt-on container stops. One compactor can be used for a variety of applications!*
• The telescoping legs allow the unit to adjust up or down to accommodate a 4, 6 or 8 cubic yard container. The VIP is now more versatile than ever!*
• Vertical compaction which eliminates all openings in the side of container from which waste material can leak or spill!
• Dumping is fast and easy because the refuse comes out of the same opening it went into!
• Elimination of more than a half ton of dead weight (compared to conventional self-contained compactors) which means fewer FL arm repairs.
• Location of the ram above the refuse which prevents trash and liquids from collecting behind the blade to foul up the cylinder or create damage when it freezes in the winter.
• Integral container guides which provide 3″ vertical tolerance to make re-entry fast and easy!
• VIP Compactor makes dumping simple and quick. The illuminated green light is the driver’s signal that the container is “ok” to be removed for dumping.
• Marathon’s patented VIP-LOCK® (Patent # 5025721) positive container lock-in device prevents container “walking.” The container device “rides over” the compactor device as the truck moves the container into position. In the fully inserted position, the compaction force inside the container prevents the container from moving.
• The VIP uses more than 13 tons of crushing power forcing the ram 18″ into the container. Between uses, the ram seals off the container and applies constant pressure on the refuse–increasing compaction and reducing spring-back.
