Skip Compactor Skip Compactor Skip Compactor Skip Compactor

Product Description

The Fork Mounted Skip Compactor is designed to achieve optimum skip capacity. Waste is usually deposited into the yard skip and taken away once full. However, in most cases the skip is 30-45 percent full of fresh air. The Skip Compactor, filled with ballast, significantly reduces this and subsequently reduces the number of collections required and money spent in doing so.

Approximate lead time: Approx 2-3 days
