LFA SC 2 – Short Static Compactor
The LFA SC 2 is our entry level, short static compactor which is our most popular static compactor for hand loading applications. By using the LFA SC 2, it is ensured that charges are correct for disposal instead of being overcharged for under capacity skips and bins. Boasting a high 30t compaction force the LFA SC 2 is capable of achieving payloads of up to 10t into a 35-yard RoRo skip. The straight push ram is a low maintenance system which has a fast cycle time of 45 seconds meaning you are able to compact up to 129m³ of waste per hour. Static compactors are most commonly used for dry general waste, but it can be used on lots of different applications where compaction is required.

Benefits of Compacting
To reduce waste disposal costs
To keep the yard much tidier – no mess or leakage
To gain a rebate of recyclable material
To prevent fly tipping
To have less contractor traffic on site
To be more environmentally friendly

The compactor can be specified with a 75% and 100% full light and we can fabricate the feed hopper to meet your needs. It can also have a bin lift (LFA SC2 BL) and a cage attached to it for extra safety. To help destroy material, we can supply a pre-crush variant to destroy products or force liquids out of bottles/cans. For further customisation, contact us and we will try to meet all requirements.
Typically, the minimum amount of waste per week to gain a cost saving would be either:
- 1100ltr wheelie bins – Fifteen GW (General waste)
- FEL (Front end loader) skip(s) – Three GW
- REL (Rear end loader) skip(s) – Two GW
- Skip clamps
- ¾ full indicator
- Automatic cycle
- Simple, easy to operate controls
- Hydraulic pack separate from waste
- Powerful 30 tonne compaction force
- Rated IP65 so safe to be sited inside or outside
- Low maintenance straight ram compaction method
- Helps prevent fly tipping
- Keeps the yard much tidier
- Reduces waste disposal costs
- Reduces contractor traffic on site
- To be more environmentally friendly
- Fast interchange of skips so minimal down time
- No longer being charged for air voids in skips/bins
- Reduces carbon footprint and complies with ISO 14001
The LFA SC 2 is extremely easy to use and requires very little manual work.
Step 1 – Setup
When installing, the LFA SC 2 must be bolted to the floor by one of our engineers. Once installed, the contractor will supply and attach an enclosed 35yd RoRo hook lift skip to it via the compactor’s clamps.
Step 2 – Feeding
This step is straight forward – Throw the waste into the charge box and press the green ‘go’ button to start the compaction cycle. The straight ram will then compact all of the waste from the charge box into the attached skip. In its standard setup this will cycle 3 times, but it can be configured to run more/less or on a timer.
Step 3 – When is the skip full?
The compactor has an indicator to notify the operator when the skip is ¾ full. Once this illuminates, the operator can calculate when it will be full and when the skip needs to be collected by the waste contractor.
Step 4 – Waste removal
The contractor will arrive on site with a hook lift vehicle and an empty skip, they will set down the empty skip to one side and then start inserting pinning bars to stop the compacted waste from ejecting out of the skip. They will loosen the clamps and detach the skip from the compactor, they then pull the skip away slightly and attach a cover over the opening on the skip to ensure no loose debris falls out in transportation. The full skip is then moved out of the way and set down, the empty skip is then picked back up, moved into place and clamped to the SC 2 ready for compaction. The contractor then picks up the full skip and takes it away.
As simple as that! It probably takes longer to read the operation than to implement it. As part of the package, one of our trusty engineers will come to site and show the team how to operate it in person. Training certification can be supplied if required.
*Note – Refurbished models may vary in its operation slightly, but the principle will remain very similar.
