LFA 151 HD – Medium Vertical Baler – Heavy Duty


The LFA 151 HD is our heavy duty, midrange vertical baler that creates bales up to 180kg. It is a fairly new machine in our range (2018) and was designed to withstand large pressures by reinforcing hinges and constructing a thicker metal frame. By doing this the machine is better equipped for springier materials like rigid plastics but it also creates dense bales of cardboard, plastic film, dry waste and paper. Other great features of the LFA 151 HD is that the feeding aperture is extra wide, sitting at 1200mm for those extra bulky pieces of material and has an auto eject feature making bale ejection easy. With an IP rating of 65, it can withstand all forms of weather so it can be sited inside or outside. It is also our largest single-phase machine, everything larger requires 3 phases.

Delivery is normally via pallet network. Other delivery methods can be arranged if specified.

The compaction cylinder can be dropped to get it through areas with restricted access.

The baler can be specified with a vandal proof cover over the controls and a lockable feed door. It can also be used as a can/drum crusher by inserting one our can crusher tables. The compaction cylinder can be dropped to get it through areas with restricted access. For further customisation, contact us and we will try to meet all requirements.

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

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

Once baled, the rebate received for the bales would typically be over £20 per ton depending on the material and quantity stored.

The LFA 151 HD takes roughly 30 seconds to set up and 3 minutes to tie off a bale, making it quick and easy to use.


Step 1 – Setup

When first using the machine, attach the bale twine reels to the back of the machine and guide the four straps through the rear of the machine into the chamber. Pull the twine through, make a loop and attach it onto the four hooks that are positioned on the front of the machine. Lay the twine into the guide slots on the base making sure they are taught. Close the door and feed the material.


Step 2 – Feeding

This step is straight forward – open the top feed door and throw the material into the chamber, making sure it is spread evenly (there is no need to flat pack the material as the baler will do the work). Close the feed door and press the green ‘go’ button. The plate will automatically run a full cycle compacting the material into the bottom of the chamber and returning to the resting position ready for the next load. (If at any point the door is opened, the machine will cut out for safety precautions).


Step 3 – When is the bale full?

There is a bale full gauge positioned at the top of the baler and a metal rod is attached to the plate – therefore, the rod moves up and down with the plate. When the plate is under full compaction and the rod aligns with the gauge, the bale is full and ready to be tied off. Repeat step 2 until this happens.


Step 4 – Tying off the bale

With the plate in its resting position at the top of the chamber, open the feed door (using our twine hook), bring the four twines across the top of the bale and cut the twine at the correct length. Feed the four twines through the slots in the bottom door and lay the other four twines that are still attached to the reel on the top of the material ready for the next bale. Close the feed door and press the ‘down’ arrow button for the plate to compact and stay down. Now the material is under compression, detach the loop end of the twine from the hook and pull the cut end through. Pull it tight and tie off. Repeat this for the other twines.


Step 5 – Ejecting the bale

Once the bale is created, it needs to be ejected. Open both doors and place a pallet in front of the baler. On top of the plate, position the pin to interact with the ejection chains. Hold down the two bale ‘eject’ buttons and the plate will start rising with the ejection chains. The bale will start tipping and with momentum will slowly roll onto the pallet. The bale now weighs up to 180kg sat on a pallet, ready to be stored for collection.


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.
