LFA MB – Mattress Baler


The LFA MB (mattress baler) is a heavy-duty baler designed to compact mattresses into a compressed sleeve. The 30-tonne compaction force reduces a mattresses volume by up to 80%, therefore significantly reducing transportation costs. The baler takes roughly 2 ½ minutes to run a full cycle meaning a throughput of up to 24 mattresses can be processed per hour. The 2140 x 350mm feed opening means you can compact single, queen, double, king and super king mattresses (depending on the depth).

The safety interlocked feed door and ejection safety cage means you can insert the mattress, press a button and then the two cylinders do the rest of the job for you. The heavy gauge sleave restrains the compacted mattress from expanding back which makes stacking mattresses very efficient and maximises payloads in skip containers, articulated lorries or shipping containers.

Typically, the minimum amount of recyclable material per week to gain a cost saving would be:

  • 1100ltr wheelie bin(s) – Six DMR (Dry mixed recyclables) or Three GW (General waste)
  • FEL (Front end loader) skip(s) – One DMR or ½ of one GW

Once baled, the bales would typically be collected free of charge.

The LFA MB is very easy to use. All in all, the machine takes roughly 2 ½ minutes to bale a mattress.


Attach the heavy gauge bag around the ejection point, open the interlocked feed door and insert the mattress. Close the feed door and press the green ‘go’ button to start the compaction cycle.

The 30 tonne, top mounted cylinder will start compacting the mattress down into a long narrow shape. Once fully compacted, the side mounted cylinder will then start pushing the mattress through the ejection point into the bag. Once complete, the cylinders will return to its resting position ready for the next mattress. Open the safety interlocked gate, move the compacted mattress to storage and start over again.
